Satellite-based Mobile TV Project Suffers Setback


In Korea, SK Telecom’s initiative toward satellite-based mobile broadcasting has suffered another setback, with the country’s broadcast regulator blocking the airing of terrestrial televised content on wireless receivers….this would keep the mobile-phone operators from accessing programs from the country’s main TV stations KBS, MBC and SBS.
The broadcast regulator left open the possibility of reversing directions in the future, however, saying it will discuss the satellite retransmission issue again when they grant business licenses for ground-based mobile television projects early next year.
