Satellite lauched to provide DVB-SH in the US The first-of-its-kind satellite was launched into the space Monday afternoon. The 19-story and $500 million rocket took the several ton DVB-SH satellite above the United States. Once the satellite takes its final place and comes operational it will distribute between ten and fifteen mobile TV streams.
The satellite, built by ICO Global Communications, is powerful enough to not require a dish and due to its new and improved DVB-SH mobile TV technology it will have better coverage and improved building penetration compared to DVB-H. Currently there are no compatible devices for the DVB-SH system, but this should change by the launch of the service in 2009.

Big deal!!

Just another excuse for the frak-heads of this country to take their eyes off the road and drive like even bigger asses. Also just another excuse for dummies to walk around not paying any attention to what's in front of them.

This technology:

Wasteful

Useless

Pointless

Waste of 500Mil
