I'm a bit puzzled by your reply.  You are the one that is always denigrating
duplication of bits when broadcasting an HM television service.  Yet you
advocate duplicating not only bits, but bands, to serve the mobile market?

I suppose we need to build in 3G receivers into future STBs so they can
receive ALL available OTA programming?
