Abstract

Television is one of the last media technologies to become disconnected
from a fixed place like home. Media like newspaper, radio, audio recordings
and computing have already been introduced in a mobile setting since
some time. However with the wide spread and strong domestication of mobile
devices, and the dominant character of television in households, it seems that
the transition to mobile television is inevitable. Viewing patterns and behavior
are strongly determined by dimensions of time, place and social context and it
is exactly on those dimensions that the mobility aspect has a great impact. The
question we therefore address in this paper is to what extent that relationship
between mobility and these dimensions will influence the uptake and usage of
mobile television.
