DVB-H trial extended
First started in October 2005 to cover the central Johannesburg area, the DVB-H trial has now been expanded to cover, the capital city, Pretoria and the main highway connecting the two cities. The next area to be covered is Soweto, one of the biggest suburbs in the south of Johannesburg.
The trial, run by Multichoice SMS, is an SFN based system carrying 14 video services and is available to a closed user group, selected by a market research company. The trial is both to test the technology as well as user behaviour.
