Two mobile licences to be released
According to advanced-television.com, Taiwan’s Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) has completed a draft proposal for the release of two national mobile TV operating licences for Taiwan in 2010. Trial licences for both DVB-H and MediaFLO mobile TV services have been issued in the past and the draft proposal would allow the use of either DVB-H or MediaFLO.
The government is adopting a neutral stance on the technology to be used.
Taiwan-based carrier Taiwan Mobile (TWM) and the Want Want Group, which publishes the Chinese-language China Times and Commercial Times newspapers, have reportedly expressed interest in bidding for the licences.
