At 2009 International CES in Las Vegas, service providers obsessed over TV's future, and rightly so. Many of them are in the pay TV business, and, at the very least, their broadband pipes are central to the future of video entertainment.

So we thought we'd offer up a photo-fed synopsis of what the consumer electronics industry is saying about the future of TV. Each photo title completes this sentence: In the next 12 months, your TV experience will be... Big Photos by Dan Diaz/Filmsight. The captions are not his fault.

re: CES Photos: TV 2010
Where will mobile TV be in 2010?

How about Netflix for handhelds?

And what about mobile over-the air TV on handhelds, already popular in Japan? In the US, over-the-air Digital TV doesn't support mobile devices, but the ATSC Mobile DTV standard was just approved, and supposedly 63 stations are going to be broadcasting it this year. I wonder who's going to put out the first phone that has this?

Found one of the answers:

Looks like it will be LG and Samsung first. This would compete with the cell company's paid services like Mediaflo, though the content is not likely to be as varied. I wonder if the signal quality will be any good when, say, riding a bus?

Since the ATSC mobile standard works better over longer distances I wonder if any of the big screen televisions will add in a mobile decoder too? Might be an interesting way to highlight a product.
