UK DAB mobile TV service ceases

February 5, 2008

Mobile television signals broadcast over the Digital One national multiplex has ceased. The move means more space is now available where the BT Movio service once transmitted live pictures in conjunction with Virgin Mobile.

Quentin Howard, chief executive of Digital One said: “BT’s innovative use of DAB digital radio to broadcast mobile TV confirmed that live digital broadcasting on mobile devices can have consumer appeal. However, subscription-based mobile TV is a complex business to get right and requires widespread take up amongst mobile operators.”
