Nokia snags first commercial DVB-H contract

Finnish infrastructure operator Digita today signed up Nokia in the world's first commercial Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) mobile TV platform supply contract. Digita obtained the DVB-H mobile TV license from the Finnish government in March and intends to rent out network capacity to broadcasters. Nokia will deliver its service management solution for DVB-H services that will support content such as live TV, radio and video clips to mobile devices. Digita expects the network to reach 29 percent of the population in Finland by year-end, and it plans to extend the network based on negotiations with possible service operators.
