NBTC orders MCOT to cancel wireless Ving TV service

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission Monday ordered MCOT to cancel its planned Ving TV wireless broadband subscription television service.

Under the Frequency Allocation Master Plan, the frequency MCOT plans to use is for telecom service, not for broadcasting service.

Natee Sukonrat, chairman of Broadcasting Committee, said the project was developed in 2010 under a management contract with Play Work, a leading information technology company.

MCOT will use part of the 2,500-2,690MHz frequency to broadcast Ving TV, which has yet to be commercially launched.
