Alan Reiter writes up a briefing on Qualcomm’s broadcast format for cell phones: MediaFLO will use former UHF Channel 55 in the U.S., carrying 20 video and 10 audio channels over 6 MHz. It’ll also stream 800 minutes of short, downloadable clips across each day and provide “IP datacasting”—data broadcast to a granular subset of users, such as stock ticker or sports updates as games progress. Verizon has committed to the service.
