Move Networks to Go High-Def on Mobile


MocoNews is reporting that Move Networks has announced plans to adapt its high-definition media player, which streams content over the Internet for mobile Internet devices with Moblin Linux software and Intel processors.

“The lines between the TV, the computer and mobile devices are blurring, while user demand for high-quality Internet television programming that they can view on all of these platforms is growing,” said Move Networks CEO John Edwards in the report.

Move Networks currently lets ABC, Fox and ESPN deliver HDTV to computers, but obviously the service wants to branch out beyond that, as few people really enjoy watching TV while chained to their home office desks. The report said that the question really is whether mobile Internet and wireless bandwidth be there in time, given that ISPs are already complaining about users who frequently download high definition videos just on the desktop alone.
