FLO TV “in UK” for 2012 - 11-January-2010, 06:55

300 lucky delegates at CES listening to Qualcomm's CEO Paul Jacobs had a nice surprise: a free FLO TV receiver, worth at least $250 and 6-months free access to the live TV service. Jacobs didn't say what difference the 300 ‘new' subs would make to the overall numbers but did admit that sales/subs are only growing "slowly".
The solution, according to Jacobs, is to add more sports to the US service, which will happen this year making FLO TV a ‘must have' for sports jocks.
Word also emerged that the service will find a home in the UK "by 2012" and in time for the Olympics. Jacobs did not address the UK but other Qualcomm execs did, although it is fair to say that similar promises have been made before and have come to naught. Qualcomm is sitting on a large slice of L-Band frequencies in the UK that it could open up tomorrow. It was also working very closely with BSkyB for a while, but again that relationship has also come to zip.
FLO TV, in the US, provides more than a dozen channels with content from ABC, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Turner's Adult Swim, CBS, CNBC, Comedy Central, ESPN, Fox, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, MTV, NBC Nickelodeon and other programmers. Some are simulcasts of the regular TV networks, while others are specially programmed mobile channels.
Qualcomm has declined to reveal FLO TV subs numbers citing confidentiality issues with its two retail partners (AT&T and Verizon), but FLO's president Bill Stone says that will change this year, and a number will be revealed which will include its own direct-to-consumer sales.
