DVB-H tender likely to be delayed

Rather than launching a DVB-H service in an initial 31 cities as previously planned, it is now more likely that a national launch will take place. The new plan follows co-ordination meetings between the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) and the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT).
It is also likely that the period of any licence would be increased to 2023 instead of 2015 as previously stated.
No new date for the tender release has been given but it will not take place during August as announced previously.
