Is Watching TV for 3G Mobile It Possible Today?

As I said in my previous article the future is in broadband, not on DTT, broadcasters have understood that it is necessary to be present on the Internet. And not only with a testimonial character, it is clear that the future lies on the Internet, television à la carte, and other formats and ways of watching TV that still today we imagine or.

I guess that today, the hearing on this type of channels (via streaming) must be minimal with respect to the audience that can represent the traditional DVB-t. And this is only an intuition because so far I’ve never seen statistics of the share of audience over the internet.

The question I ask myself about this situation is: is it possible today to watch television with a mobile 3 g?.

The case is that I’ve wanted to try really, with a 3G phone (iPhone 4 to be more specific) if it is possible today to see channels that are normally seen in DTT. And taking advantage of that I’m on vacation, I tested it outside the big cities, in a village of the province of Almería.

Of course, this has a little trick, since a few 100 meters from my house, there is a mobile phone Tower. You could say that 3 G coverage is not good, it is excellent. In the same town, 500 metres beyond the low coverage in half. I want to say this, this is one of the typical problems of mobile broadband, as the classic & #8220 would;the coverage goes through neighborhoods“.

Speed test

Before testing, I want to check which is the speed of internet access from mobile phones. With the help of this page, I do the test for 3 G, and as a result give me a speed of 2,700 kbps (i.e. approx. 337 kB per second). I come back to do the same test in another location, closer to the antenna and I’m 92 kbps more than before.

It seems that with this connection speed is more than enough to see TV on my mobile but what channels can I view?

TV + Spain an application with links to TV channels

I downloaded this application (TV + Spain), it’s no wonder from the aesthetic point of view. In addition is littered with ads but its role, which is neither more nor less than have a menu with all the channels that can be seen, and many: those from Televisión Española, antenna 3, four, Telecinco, la Sexta, etc. and also other more exotic or regional that not even I can see them with my television, like Giralda TV, Sevilla FC, or the regional de Murcia Balearic Islands, Basque country, etc, etc..

And how is the quality? because the truth is that pretty good. Once we got used to the size of the screen of the cell phone, the truth is that no problem with the quality there is. The image looks fluid, without breaks or cuts. Neither shows any pixelation or low definition. On this side, no problem to watch TV on your mobile.

And what happens to my data rate?

I made a small test that consists of the following. I put the network sent/received with my mobile data counter to zero and I see a channel for a minute and a half to two minutes.

The result is clear, almost 9 MB of data download in less than two minutes. how much it cost us a movie of 2 hours? 540 MB of data, a donkey consumption.

If we do not want our economy get up to shake, obviously We need a tariff data flat. And if it is undulating rather than flat, will move on to the section of low speed in a blink and eye. I for example have one of these, I have a Movistar rate at high speed up to 200 MB per month. From there the rate is reduced but still cost the same price.

If I want to see a program, better with WIFI and near the outlet

according to Educationvv.com,It seems clear that there are no technical problems to watch TV on your mobile, whenever we have good coverage. Ignoring the issue of the high consumption of battery that involves seeing the TV for 3G (if we are in the street away from a plug I don’t think that us in to watch a movie), nothing prevents us from today enjoy a lot of (national and foreign) channels in our smartphone.

However, in practice, I would give this use of way time over 3G and above all using WIFI at home. A smartphone or better still, a Tablet, we can be of auxiliary TV at any given time, especially for example when we do not have a computer at hand and want to watch channels that we have not received by the normal Freeview.

Leave at your discretion decide if after all this, it is worth watching the television. In any case, it would be rather a problem of content and low quality of the programs that emit, not a connection problem.
