Mobile content via satellite

Soon it will be possible to send mobile content through satellites.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is currently working on a technology that allows mobile devices, such as mobile phones and GPS systems, to receive content that was send out by satellites. This mobile content can be videos, tv and radio programs.

With the large coverage of the geostationary satellites, the content can be brought wherever in the world. That’s why it could become a new interesting distribution channel for content providers.

As a reaction, the European satellite providers SES Global and Eutelsat Communications have started the development of satellite infrastructure meant for the broadcast of video, radio and data to mobile devices. The first of these broadcasts can be expected early 2009.
