Mike Masnick has always been sceptical when it comes to mobile TV, but he too has concluded that the initial feedback from Korea is at least 'significant'.
"Whether it's a good or a bad start, 20,000 subscribers is significant. What will be interesting, however, is to see how this market develops over time. It's likely that more people will buy into it as there are more handset options (and those options get cheaper). However, what will be most interesting is to watch how usage changes over time. While broadcast style video may attract some users for the simple novelty of it, it seems like more interactive video applications are more likely to be sustainable over the long term."
