Poland opens mobile TV consultation

Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has officially opened a 30-day consultation period into mobile TV licences.
The licences will be valid until the end of 2023 and be for allocations in the UHF band.
Anna Strezynska, the president of UKE, has previously said she expects that the launch date for a mobile TV service would be in early 2009 although the recent document is not specific about this.
Broadband TV News reports that interest in the forthcoming tender is strong, with those likely to take part including the POT (Polsat/TVN) consortium, incumbent Telco TPSA and the country’s four mobile operators.
