EU backs standard for mobile TV


EU backs standard for mobile TV

The BBC reports that European officials have backed a single standard for the rollout of mobile TV services across Europe.

“Telecoms commissioner Viviane Reding has called on member states to roll out services using the DVB-H standard “as quickly as possible”:

Wait-and-see is not an option. The time has come for Europe’s industry and governments to switch on to mobile TV”

Some key players have questioned why Brussels rather than the market is deciding what the standard should be.

And analysts warn it could see the UK fall behind unless regulatory issues are ironed out.”
