T-Mobile Czech readies itself for mobile TV trials

26 Oct 2006

Czech cellular operator T-Mobile is preparing to launch trials of mobile TV services in the country, allowing its customers to interact with broadcast programmes as well as downloading them to their handsets. The German-backed company has teamed up with digital security specialist Gemalto for the two-month pilot trial in anticipation of a full commercial launch sometime next year. T-Mobile is relying on digital video broadcasting handheld (DVB-H) technology – a modification of the technological standard used for digital terrestrial television – plus interactive technology from Gemalto.
