China lags Neighbours in Mobile TV

The Mobile TV Market in China Lags behind Korea, Japan and Europe in Terms of Mobile Technology. That is the views of Dublin-based, Research and Markets.

In their latest report they analyze characteristics of China's mobile TV market which lags behind Korea, Japan and Europe in terms of mobile technology, by identifying current development from various views.

Main reason for PRC's laggard position is caused by Beijing not yet announcing the country's digital broadcast standard relating to Mobile TV.
