DAB mobile tv service ceases

Mobile television signals broadcast over the Digital One national multiplex has ceased at midnight last night, 31st January. The move means more space is now available where the Movio service once transmitted live pictures in consultation with Virgin Mobile.

The service allowed live television channels to be broadcast over radio to mobile phones such as the Virgin Lobster.

Quentin Howard, chief executive of Digital One said in a statement on ukdigitalradio.com: "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. By contrast, the free-to-air DAB digital radio services on mobile phones and the Electronic Programme Guide were both noteworthy successes of the project and continue to be available."
