NRK først ute i verden med mobilt interaktivt tv

Alltid kjekt å lese norske nyheter i utenlandsk media. Selv om det dessverre er Svisj.

Norwegian broadcaster NRK and Swedish wireless equipment maker LM Ericsson announced what they say is the world's first test of interactive mobile television.

During the six-week test, users can download a program for watching and interacting with the Norwegian youth music program Svisj on their mobile phones.

Users can vote for the next music video by pressing a mobile phone key, and chat in writing with each other or the program leaders while watching the show.

In April, the NRK claimed another world first by broadcasting live reports from a 56-mile ski race that were transmitted with a video-equipped mobile phone.
