Korea to help Cambodia launch mobile TV service

The Korean government said today that it has reached an agreement with Cambodia to help the Southeast Asian country launch a land-based mobile television service.

The agreement was reached between the broadcasting regulators of the two nations in Cambodia, where South Korean President Lee Myung-bak visited as part of the second leg of a three-nation Southeast Asian tour.

Under the agreement, Cambodia plans to start the mobile TV service by the end of this year, using new technology developed in Korea that offers crystal-clear definition for displays on mobile devices, according to the Korea Communications Commission.
