T-Systems wins licence to deploy DVB-H network in Germany

German telecommunications regulator BNA has selected T-Systems Media&Broadcast to deploy a Germany-wide DVB-H network for mobile TV services.
BNA said that the network deployment would start in the spring of 2008 in Hannover so that DVB-H applications can be shown during the Cebit trade fair in March.
The DVB-H service will then be extended to all the other state capital cities before the end of 2008 and to all German cities with more than 150,000 inhabitants in 2009. The four biggest cities in each state with populations of more than 100,000 will follow with the final goal being 90% coverage of the German population in 2015.
