Mobile communications giant Motorola has launched a six-month DVB-H broadcast mobile TV trial in Hong Kong with PCCW-HKT Telephone Limited, local subsidiary of Hong Kong telco PCCW.

The trial will run until March 2007 within Hong Kong's Quarry Bay district and will include Motorola DVB-H enabled mobile devices, network solutions and interactive services platform. During the course of the trial, PCCW will evaluate the technical capabilities and the operational performance of DVB-H in Hong Kong.

"Mobile TV is the next generation of mobile video entertainment experiences and this trial is an important step forward in bringing this experience to consumers," said Simon Leung, president of Motorola Asia Pacific.

"We're pleased to work together with PCCW to support their efforts and hope to see these services based on our solutions to become commercially available for Hong Kong subscribers soon after the technical trial."
