Sudatel is preparing for the launch of a digital video broadcasting – handheld (DVB-H) mobile TV service in Sudan, following a successful test in Khartoum earlier this year, sources have revealed.

The service is expected to be made available in the coming months. However, the telco has declined to disclose further details about the project.

Sources commenting on the condition of anonymity have told DPME.com that some of the companies which provided technology for the recent Mobision mobile TV service in Iraq were also involved in the Sudatel project.

Mobile TV services are enjoying a rapid rise in popularity in the MENA region with DVB-H projects also planned for Qatar and the UAE.

A similar service is also being implemented in Saudi Arabia using rival digital video broadcasting – terrestrial (DVB-T) technology.
