November 24, 2010
MultiChoice South Africa has confirmed the launch of its Mobile TV broadcasting service, DStv Mobile.
“We are excited to bring broadcast Mobile TV to the South African market after running a successful trial for a number of years. As previously communicated, broadcast Mobile TV is a long-term opportunity that will require significant investment. The technology and business models are still evolving globally and it will take many years to see any returns on this investment. However, it is important for the development of South Africa’s ICT engineering capability that we constantly experiment on the cutting edge of new technologies”, commented Imtiaz Patel, Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice South Africa Group.
“The independent Mobile TV broadcast network allows users unlimited access to the channels available on the service without the payment of data charges,” commented Mark Rayner, General Manager of DStv Mobile South Africa.
