DVB-H Losing Support?

The Web site carried an interesting article this week, DVB-H losing support in both the Europe and the US by Barry Flynn.

“Now that the ATSC has belatedly come up with a mobile version of its digital terrestrial standard, ATSC-M/H, DVB-H’s prospects in the USA look even bleaker, no doubt one of the reasons behind MDTVA’s decision to drop its allegiance to DVB-H,” Flynn concluded.
