LIME Suspends Mobile TV

JUST over two years after launching mobile television, predicting it would revolutionise the way people interact with mobile devices, LIME has suspended the service.

lime_jamaicaLIME reported the move in its financial statements for the year ending March 31, 2013, noting that the decision was made early May 2013.

It raises speculation as to whether the project is troubled for lack of subscription, or if LIME has just decided to revamp the service. The company, up to press time yesterday, had yet to respond to a Business Observer query seeking comment on the rationale behind the move.

Over US$100 million ($10 billion) went into developing the Digital Video Broadcast system that powers the LIME Mobile TV service. Developed in collaboration with cable company DC Digital, the technology provides customers with access to television and cable channels from their mobile phones.
