Mobile telecommunication operators are under great pressure to launch new profitable data services.
However, most of the mobile data services have fallen short of the expectation and have failed on the

(TAM) to approximate the user acceptance of non-existing mobile services. The TAM model is applied
to assess the potential future acceptance of five mobile broadcasting service scenario. The results

the most influential aspect on the future intention to use is the perceived value of the future produ
