Mobmux chosen as DVB-H network operator
TDF and Virgin Mobile have chosen Mobmux (a subsidiary of TDF) as the operator of their DVB-H multiplex, reports Broadband TV News.
The CSA in announcing the choice of Mobmux said that it was an important step towards the introduction of mobile TV “to which the Council has always been firmly committed”.
The CSA issued a DVB-H licence on the 8th April and the assignment of a network operator in two months was a condition of the licence.
The next step is for Virgin Mobile and TDF to present a financial and marketing plan to the CSA before issuing the final licence.
The 16 broadcasters taking part in the DVB-H service are Arte, BFM TV, Canal +, Direct 8, Europacorp TV, Eurosport, France 2, France 3, I-TV, M6, NRJ 12 NT1 Remix, Orange Sport Info, TF1, Virgin 17 and W9.
