Updated. Another coalition of companies has announced it will build out a mobile TV broadcast network today. Hiwire will set up service broadcasting DVB-H TV in the 700 MHz spectrum. Hiwire is a venture between Aloha Partners, one of the largest 700 MHz spectrum holders in the US, SES Americom and a number of former cable executives. The service will use Aloha's spectrum to broadcast to handsets while SES Americom's satellites will provide the feeds to the ground stations. Last year Aloha Partners received permission from the FCC to begin offering wireless broadband using its spectrum and has begun testing high-speed internet in a few markets, in addition to today's mobile TV announcement. Hiwire will begin testing their service in Las Vegas later this fall, a channel lineup has not yet been determined. Crown Castle's Modeo will also use DVB-H technology to broadcast TV.
