DVB-H on one-year trial
3G mobile operator 3 has been awarded a license by Com Reg to trial broadcast TV services to mobile handsets.
The license takes effect immediately and will run for one year. The trial comes after 3’s subsidiary in Italy launched a DVB-H service called WalkTV earlier this year.
Ireland has a relatively high take-up of digital TV with 42% of all houses using DTV services.
