DVB-H mobile TV service for Thailand
Thailand will test a commercial mobile TV service next month following a memorandum of understanding between government backed broadcaster MCOT and mobile handset provider International Engineering Plc (IEC) reports Rapid TV News.
While MCOT has been testing DVB-H technology since 2007, the deal will see a commercial pilot launched in Thailand for the first time.
Six channels will be offered initially free to view but MCOT plan to charge for new channels in the future, with 14 available in total to the service.
Covering Bangkok and its environs, the service will use the existing UHF channel 58 for mobile TV.
MCOT expects 100,000 users in the first year of service.
