DVB-H subscribers reach 5,000

During a presentation at Comdays08 in Biel Bienne Switzerland, CEO of Swisscom Broadcasting, Jean-Paul de Weck, said that there were around 5,000 subscribers to the new DVB-H service and that the take-up had been slow.
He said that this had not been helped by the lack of available handsets especially the availability of the Nokia N77.
Since the end of September four new DVB-H handsets are available and this should help drive uptake.
DVB-H services provide deep indoor coverage to 31% of the population and portable outdoor coverage to 45% of the population.
