French TV regulator CSA has extended until March 2015 the authorisation for TDF to trial DTT broadcasts of service B2M (Broadcast Mobile Multimedia) using DVB-T. TDF broadcasts the service from the Eiffel Tower transmitter in Paris.

CSA has asked TDF to send to report its conclusions after the experiment.

The B2M consortium, which includes AirWeb, Archos, Expway, Immanens, Parrot and ParisTech University, received €1 million from the government’s digital content technologies call for projects. The goal is to broadcast electronic press, magazines, films, catch-up videos and podcasts, as well as live TV and radio, to mobile devices.
