Nokia are to flood the Spanish Market with TV phones
according to Advanced-Television.com
The item goes on to say that the Finish mobile company plans a full-frontal assault on the Spanish mobile TV market with the massive launch in 2006 of mobile TV-ready phones.
Nokia, along with other mobile TV operators, is eagerly expecting the Government’s decision to allocate the DTT mobile TV frequencies over the next months. Nokia -with a market share of around 40 per cent – is already involved in the first DVB-H project in Spain, along with Telefonica and broadcasting agency Abertis. They recently reached an agreement with several Spanish TV broadcasters – TVE, Telemadrid and TV3, Tele 5, Antena 3 and Canal Plus- to trial DVB-H with up to 15 TV channels. Initially, the launch was scheduled for September, but it is running late. The idea is to test mobile TV for six months.
