Is it Phone Spam if You're Watching Television on Your Cell Phone and a Commercial Comes On?

Posted 3 weeks, 1 day ago on June 24, 2004
The BBC is reporting that people in Norway can now watch television on their cell phones. According to the BBC:

"The service from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation allows people to watch television on their mobiles 24 hours a day."

(Don't they get tired?)

Aunty wants to know: If you're watching television on your cell phone, are the commercials considered phone spam?

I would not consider that to be spam, even though one may not want to see it, one knowingly has to acknowledge the fact that television and radio stations put advertising in their media. That said, if one connects to their service, then one automatically agrees to "see" their ads. In my opinion, Spam is only spam if it reaches out for the viewer, but it is considered advertisement if the viewer knowingly connects to the source. That's just my 2 cents, but hey you asked for it ;). P.S. I just recently found this site through LockerGnome and I like the content you post here. Keep up the good work! Manuel
