The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has awarded three blocks of L-Band Spectrum (1452.960 MHz, 1454.672 MHZ and 1456.384 MHz) to Asia Media Sdn Bhd. Asia Media plans to use the allocated frequencies to deploy a Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB) network and operate up to 12 programme channels including digital TV, radio and data channels.
Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) offers a wide range of new innovative services and applications, such as mobile TV, traffic and safety information, interactive programmes and data information. Asia Media is the first in Malaysia to deploy Digital Multimedia Services (DMS) via L-band to all city transit buses in the Kuala Lumpur greater metropolitan area, viewed by over one million commuters weekly.
