DVB-H pilot begins in Bern

Around 100 people are now testing DVB-H technology for the delivery of TV and interactive services in Bern. The trial launched by Swisscom Broadcast and Swisscom mobile will continue until the end of the year.
Test participants will have access to some 26 different television channels as well as interactive services using a Nokia 7710 smartphone.
The trial will focus on the suitability of DVB-H for TV delivery to mobile phones and also help resolve any technical problems in providing the service.
