We’re proud to have staked out an international leadership position for Canada in the fast-growth mobile TV sector.”
“Live broadcasts are a key driver for mobile TV, led by Canada’s and the world’s biggest sporting events but also the major awards shows, TV season finales and special events like the Toronto International Film Festival that people want to watch wherever they may be,”continued Oosterman. “Bell Mobile TV is uniquely easy to access too – Bell enables customers to watch mobile TV without impacting their regular data usage.”
