German carriers trial mobile TV services

Germany's four carriers--T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 and E-Plus--began trials of mobile TV just in time for the World Cup soccer matches. Any subscribers with specially equipped handsets will receive the TV signals and 16 radio programs until the end of August. The pilot includes the cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Hanover and will include content from the two state-run TV channels, ARD and ZDF, which will show World Cup games. Content from privately owned channels will also be available along with some specially made programs for the platform. The service should cost between €5 and €15 a month.
