Vivendi demands clarification of TV on mobile rules

Vivendi Universal chief executive, Jean-Bernard Levy, was quoted by Reuters as stating that, We want the regulator to act more quickly and make clear as soon as possible what the regulatory framework will be…France is losing speed.

SFR is planning to launch the service commercially as early as 2007 but its schedule is being hindered by the lack of clarification regarding the broadcast frequencies it will be able to use.

To make matters worse, there is further uncertainty over who will be responsible for imposing the regulations; France’s media watchdog, the CSA, and the telecoms regulator ARCEP, are all likely contenders for the role at present.

However, SFR expects to see good revenue growth as it moves into the TV on mobile service, and is planning to invest E3 billion into its 3G mobile network over the next six years.
