Qualcomm-owned FLO TV, a broadcaster of mobile TV services in the US, said it is well placed to realize its aim of clocking 100 prime markets and over 200 million prospective subscribers by the end of 2009.
“With the completion of FLO TV''s nationwide network, consumers across the country now have the ability to watch TV on the go with the same high quality they'd expect in their living rooms. We are poised to take on the next level of consumer engagement by bringing the FLO TV service to customers on multiple entertainment devices beyond the mobile phone,” said FLO TV president Bill Stone.
To begin with, the company will extend its services to another 60 million customers in 15 unexplored markets, immediately after the settlement of the transition from analogue to digital, said the company.
However, the transition was earlier held up by the government, causing delays.
But, now that the blockheads have been cleared, Qualcomm will carry out its services across the 15 markets, including Boston, Houston, Miami and San Francisco, and will expand in existing markets, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC.
These subscription services are already offered by service providers like AT&T T) and Verizon Wireless, and will also be sold by Qualcomm directly.
