DVB-H gets everyone’s attention
Not only have Groupe Canal +, SFR and Nokia announced a joint DVB-H trial to 500 users but TPS also announced separately that it will be experimenting with DVB-H.
The Groupe Canal trial will not only seek to define technical parameters for broadcast and reception, but will also serve as a test of consumer interest.
The TPS trial includes France Telecom, Orange and Bouygues and will have around 200 mobile subscribers.
A commercial launch nationwide is not expected before 2006 or 2007.
The test will start in June subject to the approval of CSA.
Both groups still have to obtain licenses for the trials.
