Nokia to roll out mobile TV in Vietnam

Nokia has entered a deal with Vietnam Multimedia Corp. (VTC) to launch commercial mobile broadcast TV services based on DVB-H technology in two Vietnamese cities by the end of 2006, a Nordic Business Report said.

The report said the agreement, Nokia's first commercial mobile TV service rollout in the Asia-Pacific region, was also among the first of Nokia's commercial rollouts globally.

VTC would make available its mobile PayTV services to consumer subscribers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City by the end of the year, the report said.

The service is available on Nokia's N series DVB-H-enabled multimedia devices, delivered by the Nokia N92, which will be launched in Vietnam for this purpose, according to the report.
