Mobile 3.0 will hand licence back

Published by at 11:17 am under Companies,More News

The cell phone TV consortium Mobile 3.0, consisting of German media houses Burda and Holtzbrinck, the South African media group Naspers and Pixelpark founder Paulus Neef, will this week hand back its DVB-H licence to the state institution responsible for regulating mobile television in Germany.

The German media reported earlier that Mobile 3.0 might refuse to hand the licence back. In that case the state organisation was ready to take legal action. 

According to the German publication Kress Rudolf Gröger, president of Mobile 3.0, said the test-runs started in June have been abandoned. Shortly after the tests started in selected German cities, it was apparently already clear that the service and business model might not be successful.

For the reasons why the consortium failed in Germany and was ordered by the state organisation to hand the licence to organise/market mobile TV in Germany back, go here.
