EU picks mobile TV standard in DVB-H but UK sill lags …
The critical question for the UK is can national coverage be delivered in time for the 2012 Olympics.
Spectrum will be released only next year, leaving it very tight for coverage to be in place and services available nationally.
Citizens in Italy, Finland, France, Switzerland and Austria (to name a few) will be able to watch. Let’s hope the citizens of Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Cardiff and Southampton have the same opportunity.
This is a serious economic question for the UK given the fact that the UK Creative economy has a similar value to the financial services market.
