DVB-H launch expected in 2010
Although it was expected that the start of a DVB-H service would take place after the general elections in March, Advanced-Television.com reports that this may not actually occur until 2010.
Minister of Industry Joan Clos, said “ We hope that the regulation of the market is completed this year, to pave the way for the development of the industry and make the services become a commercial reality in 2010”, according to the report.
The minister also told Advanced-Television.com that initially the DVB-H service would have 20 TV channels and that the launch would coincide with the analogue switch off.
Currently the analogue switch of date is the 3rd April 2010.
