And on another note it is important to point out that client-side
player engines are being implemented these days with disconnection
resilience for unicasting. So migration between cell towers or a
complete drop of signal does not have any effect on the viewing
experiencing (until the buffer runs out, that is). Previously, players
would rebuffer given any sort of outage. FWIW I'm specifically
referring to the upcoming Flash releases (10.1). Silverlight has no
penetration for mobile devices.
