Countries unhappy over EU DVB-H ruling
November 29, 2007
The EU's decision to back DVB-H technology as the standard for mobile TV broadcasts in all member countries is under attack from Germany, Britain and the Netherlands. EU media commissioner Viviane Reding, wants to put DVB-H on a list of official standards, and could compel member states to adopt the mobile technology as early as next year. Germany, Britain and the Netherlands, however, say that no system should be made mandatory and that the market should be allowed to decide.
