Mobile DTV Alliance to promote North American DVB-H deployment

March 2, 2006

The march to the small screen continues with the formation of the Mobile DTV Alliance to foster the growth of DVB-H mobile digital TV deployment in North America.

Backed by technology giants, Intel, Modeo, Motorola, Nokia and Texas Instruments, the alliance will promote best practices and open standards to deliver DVB-H programming to handsets in North America.

With DVB-H enabled handsets, viewers will be able to receive live television programming directly on their cell phones and other mobile devices. Currently 10 DVB-H network trials are underway in Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries. DVB-H infrastructure is expected to be built out and ready for deployment in major U.S. markets next year.
