Where are the portable ATSC TVs?

Ben Drawbaugh

With only four months to go until all televisions regardless of size will be required to include a ATSC tuner we have still yet to see a small portable TV with an integrated ATSC tuner. There is less than 2 years until the analog shutoff, so why would anyone buy a new portable TV when they know they will only get a few years of use from it. Microtune made an announcement today that might help CE companies bring a small form factor ATSC TV to market. We're not sure how this is different from the chips that are currently being utilized in the ultra-compact USB ATSC tuners available today, but look forward to watching digital quality video anywhere we are, of course we realize with a screen so small and in such close proximity we can't possibly take advantage of HD resolutions.
