The Wireless Cable Model


A story I did on how Mazingo, a small wireless content distribution startup, is trying to develop a multi-media portal for wireless devices. It charges about $7 a month for access to content such as full-length movies for download, classic TV shows, radio shows from the Wall Street Journal, comics and others.

Skinny: It is an ambitious launch, and the company has about 500 subscribers, but I am not sure how users will react to downloadable content. Screen size, usability, download speeds and eventual high-speed wireless access will drive this.
