“The Japanese watch HD digital cable television on their cellphones. They can also listen to digital radio on them. While on a particular TV channel, users can browse the channel’s website and look up programming, news or the weather. What are some of the problems that you see that prevent us from watching broadcast or cable/satellite TV on your cellphone in the United States? EXPLAIN AT LEAST 3. (You must write at least 8 sentences or YOU GET ZERO CREDIT)”

  1. the sat-lights may not be big enough or we might not have the technology for this type of stuff to be on a phone.

  2. the socialite might not be the best for a certain kind of phone and sometimes when u r watching it on your phone it can mess up your phone.

  3. you might be in a area that doesnt get a signal.

  4. The cell-phones that the Japanese made probably only picks up singles from a Japanese show or station. I doubt we have any of the sort. It probably won’t be able to make calls to anywhere in North America. If we want to watch a show we need to build a new cell. If we want to listen to music stations we need to build a new cell. If we want to do both we need to build a new cell. Where more advanced so we can probably make it work in most of North America.

  5. the sat-lights may not be big enough or we might not have the technology for this type of stuff to be on a phone.

    beacuse we have more stuff to think about

  6. Sometimes you don’t have the channels you need. So you cant watch hometown games on TV like ESPN U. Or sometimes you see a good movie but you cant watch it cause you don’t have the channel. And you might not get the good and bad news that you need to know but you cant watch it. And plus it costs to much to get the dish network. They have a couple of networks like dish network, HBO, HDTV. Cable. But cable don’t have that many channels.

  7. you don’t have the channels you want. And that makes me mad. But the people with cable might be mad. The channel always goes blurry. And you don’t to watch all the thing you want. I used to have cable a log time ago. even tho on demand cost more and so does insight there still better than regular cable. and with insight you get free wifi

  8. YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE THE SHOW THAT U WONT . YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO WATCH SO GAMES OR CARTOONS . IT MIGHT NOT BE GOOD FOR YOUR CHILD OR AND SOME ADULTS.

  9. It breakup if they go through a tunnel the signal might not work at all

  10. Sometimes you don’t have the channels you need. So you cant watch hometown games on TV like ESPN U. Or sometimes you see a good movie but you cant watch it cause you don’t have the channel. And you might not get the good and bad news that you need to know but you cant watch it. And plus it costs to much to get the dish network. They have a couple of networks like dish network, HBO, HDTV. Cable. But cable don’t have that many channels.the sat-lights may not be big enough or we might not have the technology for this type of stuff to be on a phone.beacuse we have more stuff to think about.

  11. Three thing’s that I see as a problem for the united state’s of America is one that it would cost to much. 2 it would hurt the Earth. and 3 it would do away with computer’s and people would lose there job. It would cost to much because it would might cost a bunch of money and not a lot of people can buy it. It would hurt the earth because your using more of the earth’s product’s and the earth only has a limited number of product’s. After awhile the people will lower the price and people will buy the and slowly do away with computer’s. if they do away with computer’s there doing away with people. then those people will have to find another job and they will lose a lot of there stuff trying to put food on there table for there family.

  12. THAT IS COOL BUT THEY ARE IT SPSUF AND THAT IS SOMETHING WANT I WANT BUT CAN NOT GIT. I CAN NOT BLIVE THEY MADE CELL PHONE LIKE THAT. BUT KIDS WOULD GET A HOLD OF IT AND TRIRE IT UP.

  13. One thing that would prevent us from watching satellite t.v on our phones. Is that we might not have the right technology write now to be able to invent a phone that would allow us to watch television.
    Another reason that we wouldnt be able to. Is that not many people have enough money to even buy the phone. Because of all the people getting laid off. And not making enough money.

  14. i think that wee could make that in America because we got so many technology that we could make anything if people waned but if that ever comes out it well cost alot of money like a touch scream cost a lot of money like 300 but that phone alot of money

  15. idk

  16. IF U BE IN AN AREA THT DOSENT HAVE A SINGAL

  17. the sat-lights may be too little.

  18. i dont know.

  19. i don’t know what the question is asking

  20. i really dont know

  21. I THINK THAT WE SHOULD MAKE IT IN THIS STATE TO THAT WHY WHEN YOU HAVE A FAVORITE SHOW YOU NEED TO WITCH AND YOU ARE IN YOUR CAR AND YOU DON’T HAVE A TV WITH YOU YOU CAN JUST TAKE YOUR PHONE OUT AND YOU WOULD HAVE YOUR FAVORITE SHOW WITH YOU ALL THE TIME YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE TO MISS ONE OF THOSE SHOWS YOU WITCH SEE YOU COULD HAVE FUN BY JUST BY WITCHING YOUR SHOW ON YOUR PHONE.

  22. lyke kirkir (Kirsten) sayd, the sat-lites myght b 2 litle

  23. IF U BE AN THAT DOSENT NOT HAVE NO SINGAL

  24. I REALLY DON’T KNOW BECAUSE I DON’T UNDERSTAND IT

  25. people in japan probaly have way better signal than we do in america.

  26. I think you should put tv’s in your car so you can watch tv without have to be in the house.

  27. That would be kinda cool. So that way you can watch sports on your phone. Then that way you could be watching your fave team.

  28. CABLE , INTERNET, STATIC, PLUS U PROBABLY WOULD HAVE TO PAY

  29. well…..i dont understand tha questionn

  30. Having no signal. Some kind of connection problems. They may be to little. We might not have the correct technology. People dont have enough monery for that technology. They might not be big enough. It might not work out of states. May not be able to make calls to North America. It could mess up your phone.

  31. I THINK IT IS BECAUSE WE PAY FOR I NTERNET. ALSO WE HAVE LIKE LOWER TECHNOLIGY. THIRD IS WE ALL DNT HAVE WORLD WIDE SATALITE OR CABLE. WE PAY FOR DIFFERENT THINGS. ALSO THERE ISNT LIKE LINKS FOR FREE ON PHONES

  32. well because every thing is on cell phones the cell phone companys prices will go up and they will be making alot of money. and then the telesvisons services will not being running really because its all on phones. and televisions wont be made as much cause no body will really watch them,

  33. i think that the U.S. should have cell phones like that because all the techinilg that we have to day we should be able to have that

  34. we all dont have cable and there is not good signal in some places in louisville

  35. WELL WE DON’T HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY THEY DO SO WE DO AS MUCH AS WE CAN.IF WE HAD THE PHONES THEY HAVE THEN WE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO ALLOT MORE.1.WE MUST BE ON ONLY ONE APP AT A TIME WITH OUR PHONES.2.WE CAN NOT HAVE AS MANY APPS AS THEY CAN.3WE DON’T HAVE THE ADVANCED SEARCHING TECHNOLOGY THAT WE NEED.

  36. because on cell phone u cant get reproach but on TV u can

  37. i think that the U.S. should have cell phones like that because all the techinilg that we have to day we should be able ti do that

  38. well we might not have the technology to do that kind of stuff.
    another reason why is because people would buy the cell phone like that but that will cost more money to spend.but i do suggest that they make in in this state also. it will be so cool that you get to have television on your cell phone. but my ? is does it have single where ever you go. and what if there is not all the channels?????????……….

  39. It could be because of our satalite. I mean we aren’t as advanced as japan is. It could also be that our phones aren’t capable of running t.v. shows. It is a possiblity. I think it could also be because they have special phones capable of playing t.v. They do have cool things. I don’t know. I don’t want to watch t.v on the go.

  40. I think because we dont have as much tecnologey and china does or somthing like that… Also maybe its the signal or somthing

  41. If we make TV on cellphones we will lose many jobs.We also don’t have such high tech.People will stop buying TV and buy phones.to me it’s a good idea.But the phone prices would go up.Those are some of my opinions.

  42. the reasons we do not have cell phones with tv is because they are not trying to work on phone and japan they work realy hard on technology they are five year a head of us in technology so that is why they got cell phone with TV an insight and HD so that is why they got phone’s like that so they problely
    (<*Jay_duh

  43. The problems that there are, is that people that use thier cellphones their batery will go down faster. Also the tv company could go down or out of buisness because of the new phones with tv, cameras, and videos, ecet. Also People might like the phones, but there are good and bad in it.

  44. money

  45. problems that might prevent us from watching t.v. on cellphones is we don’t get service. Also we might not have money to pay for the extra bill. last we might not know how that is possible for us to get t.v. or whatever on the cellphones. it would be nice if we got t.v. on our phones. when were not at home and we are going to miss or favorite shows we can watch them. We would not bug our parents to hurry home. we could watch our shows when our parents are watching theres.that is what i think

  46. We don’t have very good singals in the U.S. Everyone says theres is the best but they are all the same. People will be using thier phones alot more and that would cost more money.

  47. i think that the cell phones they make are too up to quallity for the united states. people need to undersatand that if tv is added to the cell phones people will lose many jobs due to the fact, that people would stop buying tvs and continue buying cell phones. and with more people buying cell phones the price will increase and most people will not have a taste of the real world. or what is in front of them.

  48. Some of the problems that may occur with the T.V. broadcast on mobile phones are that for one, there are many different television network companies such as Insight, Direct, Net-gear, etc. that use different networks for broadcasting the channels. If a phone company were to create their own broadcasting network for this ability…it would be very pricey and complicated. Also, it would be very difficult to keep up with the high demand of satellites used to broadcast these lengthy broadcasts to many multiple cellular devices across the United Sates. Especially since 2/3 people have different phone services.

  49. someTimes you donT have The channeLs you need. you canT waTch homeTown qames. someTimes you wanT To see a movie buT you canT because you donT have The channeL.you canT qeT The qood or bad news because you donT have The channeL.iT is aLso expensive To qeT dish neTwork. They have a couple of neTworks Like dish neTwork, HBO, HDTV. cabLe. buT cabLe don’T have ThaT many channeLs.

  50. The reason why we don’t have TV on our phone is because that the phone well probably not work. Japan will have TV on there phone because japan have good technology that can make thee phone work. I think that they should not change the technology like that because we can not get it in the United States. Also that the phone will be a lot of money because the phone has TV and nobody well have that much money.

  51. Some of the reasons I think it’s a disadvantage to have a tv cellphone is that tv providers will go broke. People will only be able to watch tv through their cell phone signal providers. This means companies like direct tv , dish, and comcast will lose money because there would be no one buying television service. I’ll also bet that the phone service will be cheaper than the tv so the companies might get to to the point of bankrupt. Well another thing is that when you watch tv in the phone you will also have to recharge the phone to watch the tv. So you maybe watching a show but if your phone runs low on batteries you’re going to have to recharge your phone. Also because the price of a phone will go up. The economy works like this the higher the demand of something the higher the price is. So the more demand on phones the higher the price is.

  52. one reason why is that it might only pick up the japenese stations. another reason is that they might not be able to pick up signal. or even get signal in that area. also they might cost to much. for every one reason why is that it might only pick up the japenese stations. another reason is that they might not be able to pick up signal. or even get signal in that area. also they might cost to much. for every one to watch HD tv on their phones. but another reason is that they might have enough money to buy one. also the people might want to watch HD on their acutal tv.

  53. I think the reason is that the US is over populated. And the signal would get messed up. And too many people with phones. Like alot of people have cell phone with diffrent networks. Like T-mobile, AT&T, cricket, and Boost moblie. And like 95% of US people have phones. So things would get messed up with networks. Thats what I think

    Sincerly, Dondre Busby AKA Kidd Swagger

  54. the united states does not make high high stuff like that. plus them people be goin hard on makein phones and stuff. and were there from they all ways makein somthin. thats like all they do is make stuff. think the reason is that the US is over populated. And the signal would get messed up. And too many people with phones. Like alot of people have cell phone with diffrent networks. Like T-mobile, AT&T, cricket, and Boost moblie.

  55. I think the reason is because if people have that kind of fone they arent going to want a televison. livingroom bedroom or anyof that. when you go on internet period its going to run your batteryy down. So if you have televison on it your batteryy will really go dead fast.

  56. because we don’t have the right technology right now. also people from japan are way smarter. they have more money to make things like that.

  57. .Some of the reasons I think it’s a disadvantage to have a TV cellphone is that TV. And the signal would get messed up. And too many people with phones. Like a lot of people have cell phone with different networks. providers will go broke. People will only be able to watch TV through their cell phone signal providers.

  58. i think that if you have that phone you dont need a tv. its better then tvs. it cost less. its better than older phones. there battery last longer. it has more technology. i like it more. but how can they watch tv on there cell phone when we cant.

  59. IF WE HAD PHONES LIKE THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT AROUND AND GET FAT.ANOTHER ONE IS THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT AROUND WATCHING TV OR BROWSING THE WEB.ONE MORE IS THE PEOPLE IN CHINA ARE RICH AND CAN OFFORED THOSE KIND OF PHONES AND MOST PEOPLE CAN’T HERE BECAUSE THOSE PHONES ARE REALLY HIGH TECH AND ARE VERY EXPSENSIVE.

  60. If your in a car you might lose signal. it would cost a lot of money. you could break it. but mostly it is COOL I would want one. it’s got a game center cool. but you could lose radio signal or t.v signal. if it gets wet you have to buy a new one. all the power signals would interrupt the t.v signal. they would get stole or lost.

  61. ~♥*think the reason is because if people have that kind of phone they aren’t going to want a television . living room bedroom or any of that. when you go on internet period its going to run your battery down. So if you have television on it your battery will really go dead fast.*~

  62. i think dat tha reason iz dat the U.S. is ova populated. And the signal woud get messed up. and 2 many ppl wit phones. lik alot of ppl have cell phone wit different networks. lik T-mobile, at&t, cricket, and boost moblie. and lik 95% of U.S. people have phones. so things would get messed up with networks. dats what i think.

  63. I think that it would cause more recks on the road. because people allready have a problem with texting and driving. now if we could have tv in a car it would get even worse. but the radio would not matter. because you could turn it to a single station. you wold not have to pay atention to a raideo.

  64. I think that there phone more populated because in the us the signal would mess up and more.

  65. I think that it would cause more recks on the road. because people allready have a problem with texting and driving. now if we could have tv in a car it would get even worse. but the radio would not matter. because you could turn it to a single station. you wold not have to pay atention to a raideo. there would be more wreaks

  66. the united states does not make high stuff like that. plus that tv providers will go broke. sometimes you don’t have the channels you want or need.We don’t have very good signals in the U.S.

  67. Three things that I see wrong that we can’t do on our cells are for one is why don’t we, and 2nd of all is that why don’t we have the money to program cellphones that way, and third of all is the government doesn’t care about it. It would be cool to have those phones. They able to make T.V. portable. You can leave the house and still be able to do everything you do at home. It would make it more capable of listening to the radio while you do outside activities. Also It would make us more active. We could go outside and still be able to watch t.v.and radio. I just think its the coolest thing ever.

  68. The phones can not load the channels as fast. So they do not have all the channels a regular t.v. has. You could mess up your phone. The page could be to large to open on your phone. And it could cost to much per month to get all of the channels. On a regular t.v. it is made to watch shows. Cell phones are not. So this is some things why phones don’t have all of those channels.

  69. IF WE HAD PHONES LIKE THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT AROUND AND GET FAT. ONE MORE IS THE PEOPLE IN CHINA ARE RICH AND CAN AFFORD THOSE KIND OF PHONE. MOST PEOPLE CAN’T HERE BECAUSE THOSE PHONES ARE REALLY HIGH TECH AND ARE EXPENSIVE. WE DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TECNLOGY

  70. IF WE HAD PHONES LIKE THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT AROUND AND GET FAT. ONE MORE IS THE PEOPLE IN CHINA ARE RICH AND CAN AFFORD THOSE KIND OF PHONE. MOST PEOPLE CAN’T HERE BECAUSE THOSE PHONES ARE REALLY HIGH TECH AND ARE EXPENSIVE. WE DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TECNLOGY

  71. IF WE HAD PHONES LIKE THAT PEOPLE WOULD JUST SIT AROUND AND GET FAT. ONE MORE IS THE PEOPLE IN CHINA ARE RICH AND CAN AFFORD THOSE KIND OF PHONE. MOST PEOPLE CAN’T HERE BECAUSE THOSE PHONES ARE REALLY HIGH TECH AND ARE EXPENSIVE. WE DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TECNLOGY. I think that it would cause more recks on the road. because people already have a problem with texting and driving. now if we could have tv in a car it would get even worse. but the radio would not matter. because you could turn it to a single station. you wold not have to pay atention to a raideo.

  72. i think the reason is people might not have a good enough signal, or might not have satellite or cable, and it could cost a lot of money to watch movies and listen to the radio on your phone. And the phone can not load as fast.

  73. one is not enough money. or not enough people buying it. or the economy. so if you still want cable buy it before it is to late. so in my opinion just get it.

  74. i think that if we had that it wouldn’t work as good.or get a virus. because it cost a lot of money.you cant load the channels as fast.and the internet runs the battery low.and i don’t think the united states could have that high of stuff.

  75. i really don’t know. but i guess you would be in some places and not get good reception. or if it dies it will be worthless.that is what i think. but they may think it is the best . but i would never use it.it would be a wast of money to me.i would just watch my own t.v.and i don’t even listen to sidelight radio.

  76. maybe it cost to much money. we dont have clear signal. the phones dont have ehough memory. our phones do not have intias. and if we had t.v. phones. we would have more rex on the road. also texting is bad engouh. but the radio is fine because it does not need your atention.

  77. weLl one reason for them likeing ipods is because they are way cooler. they are really thin and fit really any where. another reason is because there battery last for a long time.they also have alot of memorie. Plus they come in a short long or wider verison , and many different colors.
