Govt. explores direct-to-mobile tech for live TV

New Delhi, August 05, 2023, By IBW Team


The government is exploring the feasibility of beaming live TV channels to mobile phones without a data connection, similar to direct-to-home (DTH).

The technology, known as D2M (direct-to-mobile), will allow mobile phone users to watch TV on their devices just like they would through a cable or DTH connection, the Economic Times reported on August 5, citing government sources.

Is is also said the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) and IIT-Kanpur are working on details.

The telecom operators, on the other hand, are likely to oppose the proposal because it will reduce their data revenue, which is primarily generated by video consumption, and harm their 5G business case, according to the report.

It is expected that officials from the DoT, MIB, IIT-Kanpur, as well as representatives from the telecom and broadcast industries will attend a meeting next week, as per the report.

In light of 5G’s launch, government officials believe content delivery should be converged through broadcast and broadband.
