The European Commission has officially selected DVB-H as the mobile TV standard in Europe.
"EU member states endorsed the Commission's three-pillar strategy presented in July, putting in place a joint approach to licensing mobile TV to accelerate rollout of services and encourage innovative business models," the EU confirmed today.
All 27 member states will now be expected to support and encourage the technology, making spectrum available and promoting the use of DVB-H.
Reding formally announced in July that DVB-H would be used throughout Europe, subject to approval from the EC.
"Wait and see is not an option," she said in July. "The time has come for Europe's industry and governments to switch on to mobile TV."
