Taiwan government to release two mobile TV licences

Taiwan's Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) has completed a draft proposal for the release of two national mobile TV operating licences in Taiwan in 2010, according to AN Economic Daily News report.

The government will be neutral on the adoption of either DVB-H or Media FLO developed by Qualcomm broadcasting technology, the paper noted. Qualcomm, Taiwan-based carrier Taiwan Mobile (TWM) and the Want Want Group, which publishes the Chinese-language China Times and Commercial Times newspapers, have reportedly expressed interest in bidding for the licences.
