MobiTV vs GoTV

(sub. req.): This should be a good boost to both the startups…Barron’s has a good overview story contrasting the approached of the two mobile TV/video startups MobiTV and GoTV Networks. MobiTV, which is operated by Idetic of Berkeley, Calif., basically is providing a live, streaming feed of popular broadcast and cable channels, with some on-demand channels. GoTV Networks, based in Sherman Oaks, Calif., not far from the studios’ back lots in Burbank, provides specially packaged “on-demand” versions of your favorite programs and networks.
MobiTV strikes me as more of a Silicon Valley technology company, and GoTV as more of a Hollywood media company…In the end, I think I’m going to want both: the ability to watch the World Series live while stuck at the airport and the flexibility to watch programs when I want to watch them.”
