Global - Mobile Data - SMS TV


This report was archived in July 2006 and has not been updated. High mobile phone penetration rates and a fondness - particularly amongst young people - for sending text messages has clearly contributed significantly to the growth of a form of interaction, called SMS/TV. Broadcasters have used SMS as a channel for communicating directly with viewers to extend program/station loyalty. Those broadcasters that are building Customer Relationship Management (CRM) data bases are in a position to gather data on preferences and the marketing of programs.
