ICO mim is the world’s first fully integrated satellite-terrestrial network being used to deliver mobile video and interactive two-way communications services that powered by ICO G1, the largest commercial satellite launched to date which cover the entire United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. More, ICO mim has developed using the worldwide DVB-SH standard.

With excellent sound and video quality, plus a larger screen, mobile TV now brings the same pleasure as traditional TV,” added Olivier Coste, chairman of Alcatel-Lucent’s mobile broadcast activities. “With the satellite, mobile TV now works everywhere a user might roam; tomorrow, this service will be as ubiquitous as radio is today.”
