German Mobile TV Tests Successful


The recent DVB-H mobile TV trials in Germany have been deemed a success…glowing terms are used in the absence of hard figures. According to the article the German operators are ready to go but need the government to do a bit of regulating…”This means that transmission frequencies must be made available across the whole of Germany and a harmonised regulatory framework must be created for this innovative service”.
There’s also mention of hooking the DVB-H channels up to the mobile phone networks to create a feedbach channel and allow for interactive television. Although Germany was the first to start technical trials in 2004 Italy has already launched its service and Finland is reportedly just about to.
