Intelsat Supports 3 Italia's DVB-H Service

Intelsat was selected by Reti Radiotelevisive Digitali (RRD) to support 3 Italia's commercially available Digital Video Broadcasting-Handheld (DVB-H) mobile TV service. Launched in June, the service, called WalkTV, has already attracted over 140,000 clients.

3 Italia is using the IS-905 satellite, located at the 335.5°E orbital location, to broadcast a multiplex of 12 television channels from the 3 Italia network operations to over 450 UHF transmitters throughout Italy. The signal is then re-transmitted terrestrially from the UHF transmitters directly to mobile phones.
