Goodnight Vienna for DVB-H

15 Oct 2010

DVB-H mobile TV broadcasts in Austria will be terminated at the end of this year, reports Heise Online, quoted by Telecompaper. The switch-off was confirmed by cellco 3 Austria, which said that it, Mobilkom, Orange Austria and Media Broadcast had jointly decided to end DVB-H broadcasts on 31 December. The 3G operator added, though, that mobile TV streaming services would remain available, ‘at a higher resolution than with DVB-H.’ Austrian DVB-H services were launched in 2008 but only attracted around 10,000-15,000 subscribers, according to industry experts quoted in the report.
