MTNL Launches Mobile TV Service

Well, it’s not DVB-H or Media FLO, if you were expecting that…PTI reports that MTNL has launched a mobile TV service on its 2G network in Delhi, which allows users to watch seven channels over GPRS. The service is priced at Rs. 50 per month for five channels, and I guess GPRS charges would be extra. This is a soft launch, and the commercial launch is planned for April. Others, including Airtel, Idea Cellular and Reliance Communications already have this service; usually, over the 2G networks, you get 15-17 frames per second and a poor quality picture, so it’s rather pointless. MTNL is present in only two cities – Delhi and Mumbai, and will remain a bit-player unless it’s integrated into the larger government owned telco – BSNL.
