• Consumer adoption of mobile TV: Examining psychological flow and media content
Does mobile TV look useful?
Does mobile TV look easy to use?
Can you block out distractions when watching mobile TV? Do distractions
ruin in the experience?
When you’re watching mobile TV, does it matter if the programs are gripping
Early adapters think mobile
TVs are fun and useful
Ease of use is just a slight
factor to these early
A user’s ability to concentrate amongst distractions
and the quality of the shows are big factors in whether
a test subject enjoyed using a mobile TV
• Self-selected sample means
• 172 men, 33 women, 3 not
• 3 saying means skewed
• No way to tell what subjects
found too distracting
No numbers published on the 208, no Likert scale averages,
we don’t see any useful data to make our own conclusions
Distractions and programming quality have affected
viewing enjoyment since ancient Greece. The fact that
these affect mobile TV is in the “well, duh” category.
