Web TV on I-Phones in France

This is what French mobile operator Orange is offering its customers for 9€ per month. The programme- bouquet consists of more than 60 linear channels (from TF1 to Eurosport and Cartoon Network) plus a video archive of about 3500 downloadable videos. Up to now this is regarded as the most serious business model in Europe in the area of mobile television and is expected to finally open the European market for mobile content. Interestingly, Orange does not implement the DVB-H mobile content transmission standard for this purpose, but live-streaming and thus makes use of the internet as a distribution plattform.

If this decision proves to be successful, the future of DVB-H in Europe could become even more uncertain, with IP content-transmission being more adequate for the needs of the Europeancustomers in the long run.
