Communication Engineering for Use Paradoxes: an Explorative Analysis of Mobile TV
Many IS studies point to paradoxical behavior when humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks in managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. Those studies are also relevant to the use of mobile TV, i.e., of real-time broadcast transmissions of content to mobile devices, which have become feasible with the convergence of telecommunication infrastructures, computer technology, and media content services. However, the use of mobile TV, as the use of any mobile service is not free from mixed user experiences. This paper investigates the occurrence and impact of technology induced paradoxes, known from professional mobile services.
