Record TV programs onto your mobile phone

PVR (Personal Video Recording) is about to move into the mobile sector according to a demonstration by Texas Instruments in Amsterdam.

New technology will allow people to record a television show onto a mobile phone and watch it at a later date. Apparently picture in picture capabilities will also be included so you can watch two shows at once on the train to work.

PVR technology will be found in some high end phones by 2007 and we expect the main manufacturers pushing TV phones at the moment will be interested in adding a video recording facility.

With TV on mobiles struggling to take off maybe more features and usability is needed to take the technology into the mainstream.
