VTV has been broadcasting T-DMB services on air in Ho Chi Minh City since December 2010 with three transmitters covering the city area. T-DMB Total Solution has been developed by ETRI to provide a T-DMB pay service and includes CAS (Conditional Access System), MOS (Monitoring Operating System), CMS (Customer Management System), and BS (Billing System). VTV plans to draft a Memorandum of Understanding with ETRI and launch a T-DMB commercial service in Hanoi in 2012.

VTV Broadcom, a subsidiary of State-run Viet Nam Television (VTV), has applied to the Ministry of Information and Communications for a new national license to carry out T-DMB services nationwide after a two-year trial run in Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City. The services aim to cover 10 cities in Vietnam in the next two years. VTV Broadcom said if it received permission, it would invest an initial VND50 billion (US $2 .4 million) providing a DMB service, also called mobi TV in Vietnam, in Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City. It said it expected to make a profit from the service within two years. VTV have partnered with XONE FM, a radio station with a target focus of young audiences, to provide digital radio content through T-DMB networks. They also plan to launch self-branded mobile phone receivers at a retail price of approximately $100 per unit. VTV was granted a 15 year digital broadcasting license in 2011 to provide T-DMB services, in Vietnam and also plans to apply for a Telecom operator license in the near future in order to converge digital broadcasting and telecom services in Vietnam to provide more diverse services including data and traffic services.
