What makes you feel so certain that people do not want to watch TV on their mobile devices? A lot of people watch movies on their handsets/tablets?

If Nokia hope it has something for Apple or Google to worry about in the smartphone market, it is not like Nokia TV. This is an insgnificant piece of the smartphone, they need to come up with something better.

I totally agree with you that having a TV on a mobile phone does not have an edge at all. That was actually the point of my remarks. As an application Nokia TV is as ordinary as having a TV tuner on a mobile phone. In some use case scenarios this application is even inferior to a having a tuner as it does not offer live broadcasts at all.

I also agree that Nokia needs to come up with something very impressive to rescue its failing smartphone business. Nokia TV simply is not good enough and is not the life jacket Nokia needs at the moment.

@ Cryptoman,

Sure, having TV on a mobile phone is not a bad idea but I don't see any excitement in this, because this can't give Nokia an edge in smartphone market race. The idea is not new, most China phones can stream a live braodcast while Nokia TV show is streamed after aired.

Cryptoman, It is actually a good idea . I believe I have seen some China-made phones with this features.

Actually, having a built-in tuner on a phone does not seem like a bad idea despite the visual quality and signal degradation issues. At least that way, one gets a chance to watch live content !

Yes, if it is just an app on Lumia phone with no stream of contents, there is no big thing about this.
