Russia’s Ministry of Communications has ruled in favour of mobile TV providers in a dispute with cable operators over interference.
As a result, reports CNews, the latter will have to change their frequency plans.
The interference of signals first came to light during DVB-H trials being undertaken by VimpelCom’s Dominant and Centaur, part of the WiMAX operator Scartel, in Moscow. In a similar dispute between mobile TV and DTT over interference, the latter was given preference.
Cable operators say that changing their frequency plans will add to costs.
They also say that they were not previously informed about what frequencies mobile TV services would use.
