Doordarshan News to go in mobile mode from New Year

Come New Year and television viewers in Delhi and Chennai will have the luxury of watching DD News channel while traveling in their vehicles. This follows Prasar Bharati’s decision to convert Doordarshan’s Digital Terrestrial Transmitter (DTT) service in Delhi and Chennai into mobile reception mode.

Currently, Doordarshan is operating DTT from four metros – Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata – benefitting its five channels, including DD News, DD-1, DD Sports, DD India and regional service.

With the conversion of DTT service into mobile mode in Delhi and Chennai from January 1, 2006, DD News channel will be available in moving vehicles in these two cities.

Prasar Bharati has already conducted successful trials in Delhi and Chennai, and has found out that vehicles moving at a speed of about 50 kmph get satisfactory reception within a range of 35 km. Viewers are required to put a special antenna atop their vehicles along with a set top box for DTT service or diversity receiver designed for mobile reception.
