Mobile TV is an exciting new platform for distribution of audiovisual content that could well generate new business opportunities for content creators and service providers, bring new value-added services to citizens, and create jobs in Europe. Whereas for the time being each country is developing its own Mobile TV market, the Commission – which is currently preparing a Communication on the subject – underlines the need for a proactive and coordinated EU-strategy. The future of Mobile TV was also on the agenda of an informal meeting of the EU Telecom Ministers on Thursday in Hannover.
