Digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) services based on two different technologies, terrestrial DMB (T-DMB) and satellite DMB (S-DMB), have been in commercial operation since 2005. Despite their similarity in terms of consumer experience, enabling users to watch TV on the move, T-DMB and S-DMB are undergoing different development scenarios. Suran Seong examines the current development of the two mobile broadcasting technologies and identifies the lessons for deployment in other markets.
