In the digital age the mobile phones are the devices that everyone has and use regularly on daily basis. Furthermore, many people are always-on either they are working, communicating, browsing Internet or playing games. These trends are increasing (Baron, 2010, Williams, 2017). Many authors examine mobile phones as mobile TV devices. Chipschase et al. (2004) point out that we could consider mobile phone as tool for sharing. Mobile TV service offer personal experiences and user have choice of selecting the content that they wanted to watch (Koroleva, 2016). According to Kaasinenet. al (2009), the mobile TV broadcasting content already seems to be exciting and attractive to the consumers. Mobile phones are personal gadgets equipped with positioning devices providing location data to services and consumers are also used to interacting with the device (Crnkovic, 2013). Finally, mobile devices provide the consumers with more topical, more local and more personal content than on other media.

Mobile TV services are not yet accepted to the higher extent. There are many of reasons why the launch of different services related to mobile TV around the world has been delayed. Orgad (2009) indicated that the various issues are surrounding technology progress, ranging from the unsustainable business models, and urgent need for relevant regulatory frameworks. Various subjects such as manufacturers and marketing companies, as well as broadcasters, aim to related the new and unknown with the already established, in order to advance the understating of the always-on emerging technologies, as the ascendants of the current familiar and safe social worlds (Orgad, 2009).

According to Fontaine et. al (2010) the circumstances related to the TV industry transfer to the Internet are occurring, with numerous effects to the entire sector. Authors indicate that the typical model will no longer be the exclusive rights model, some of the clients will move on from the traditional networks, and globalization will aims towards the benefit of the major rights holders.
