The majority of EU Member States represented at the European Council have supported the European Commission’s strategy for Mobile TV in the European Union. The strategy comprises three main elements, including: (i) a joint approach to the licensing of mobile TV; (ii) making spectrum available for these services, possibly in the UHF frequency band; and (iii) the controversial promotion of the use of DVB-H as the mobile TV standard for the European Union. DVB-H is an open standard developed by the Digital Video Broadcasting Consortium. The Commission has adopted a light touch approach and would not propose EU legislation in the field. It would organise an exchange of best practices and provide guidance to EU Member States for the adoption of a coherent and harmonised framework to implement the adopted strategy.
