Mobile TV Policy being decided
The Indian government is in the process of formulating a policy for mobile TV, according to a report on the website advanced-television.com.
A licensing regime on the same basis as that for private FM services is being planned for the mobile terrestrial TV service.
The Information and Broadcasting ministry (IB) is said to be considering the proposal. If it is accepted and cleared by the Cabinet an auction process is likely for the 8 MHz spectrum slots, which would be used for mobile TV services.
