No mandatory standard for mobile TV in Germany
04.10.2007 - Germany - Germany
Broadband TV News reports that the German Bundesrat (upper house) has decided there should be no mandatory standard for mobile TV broadcasts. This point of view is at odds with the European Commission, which wants to make adoption of the DVB-H standard compulsory. Next year, a consortium of cellcos O2, Vodafone and T-Mobile plan to launch a nationwide DVB-H service in the country, but at present mobile TV provider Mobiles Fernsehen Deutschland (MFD) already offers a commercial service using the DMB standard in some parts of the country. The Bundesrat also warned that such regulatory measures from Brussels could interfere with the free flow of information, the plurality of the media and cultural diversity.
