Online advertising ‘overtakes TV’ (UK)

Online advertising spending in the UK has overtaken television expenditure for the first time, a report has said. Online spending grew 4.6% to £1.752bn in the first half of 2009, while TV spending shrank 16.1% to £1.639bn. […]

Quite impressive to see that companies spent more on online advertisement than on the TV channel. Justin Pearse from NMA pointed out that this overtake is mainly due to the stormy times companies currently face. However, in the end what really matters is the effectiveness of every spent pound.

Orange and T-Mobile To Trial Mobile TV Service in UK

Pretty cool! … unfortunately I am no longer in London : (

The idle 3G spectrum in UK has been the subject of idle speculation for some time, and mobile TV trials have been promised, and now Orange and T-Mobile UK will jointly pilot a new mobile TV service in West London using NextWave’s TDtv solution. The pilot, scheduled for the second half of 2008, is supposed to show how mobile operators share widely-available unpaired 3G spectrum and a TDtv broadcast network. A similar trial has been done in Bristol in UK before, with four operators (Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica and 3).

During the six month trial, users will receive 24 high-resolution TV channels along with 10 digital radio stations.
