Television channels available will be ORF 1, ORF 2, ATV, Puls 4, ProSieben Austria, RTL, Sat.1 Österreich, VOX, Laola1.tv, LaLa TV, Red Bull, RTL II, N24, Super RTL and a further, as yet unknown broadcaster. The radio selection will consist of Ö3, FM4, Kronehit, Ö1 and Lounge FM.

The bouquet will initially be available in cities where the matches take place, being Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Klagenfurt. But by year-end the DVB-H network should cover all major domestic cities and thereby 50% of the Austrian population.

The DVB-H package supplements the UMTS-based mobile TV bouquet with 40 television and radio stations which Hutchison 3G Austria already offers. All customers who opt for the tariff “ShowTime XL” can receive the package during the entire duration of their contracts without charge. All other customers can receive DVB-H until the end of the year free of charge. Thereafter it will cost €6 per month.
