[Digg] Cell phone screens suck for watching TV. Well, duh!


According to a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg survey, the kids these days, they're not all that enthralled with watching video on their cell phones and other small screen devices.

Only 14 percent of teens say they want to watch TV on cell phones, and only a few percent more say they'd watch on an iPod. That's compared to 40% who say they're willing to watch video content on the internet.

The kids who were surveyed said they had two major problems. Mobile video content costs too much, and the quality is not good enough, either because of a poor streaming experience, or low resolution.

Oh, you mean it's NOT fun to watch a crappy quality video on a screen the size of four postage stamps? That took a week to download?? Shocker!!
