The White Space Coalition

added by Michael on 21 Jan 2008

The "White Space" between your digital TV Channels seems to be Prime Real Estate for some tech companies.

This exploration of the white spaces is part of the general-spectrum "land rush" that is taking place as American TV evolves. As TV stations transition from their current analog signals to digital by early next year, there will be spaces between channels. These spaces are not currently regulated or licensed, and Microsoft, Google and other companies want to mine it for wireless broadband service.

The companies interested in the white spaces have formed an alliance, appropriately known as the White Spaces Coalition. The group includes Dell, Earthlink, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Intel and Philips.
