Very generic question not sure if it is UMTS or LTE. Let me put something here related with MBMS
MBMS in UMTS/WCDMA offers 6 mobile TV channels at a data rate of 128 kbps in a 5 MHz channel. Also the FDMA/TDMA- and CDMA-based access technologies for 2G (GSM) and 3G (WCDMA) are not well-suited for broadcast. All classical broadcast technologies (e.g. Digital Video Broadcast (DVB), Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB)) utilizing Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) as the underlying transmission scheme and so does LTE.
In addition two aspects are impacting the success for a MBMS service from a technical perspective. First, good coverage, even at the cell edge, and second low power consumption. Evolved MBMS (eMBMS) as defined in 3GPP Release 8 and 9 aims to tackle these aspects. The goal is to increase spectral efficiency at the cell edge up to 1bps/Hz while realizing a Single Frequency Network (SFN). In addition MBMS capabilities are increased compared to 3G, by offering 20 TV channels at a data rate of 256 kbps in a 5 MHz channel. However, eMBMS has not been identified being critical for commercial LTE deployment. Therefore the specification has been segmented by adding physical layer aspects already to 3GPP Release 8 and have higher layer and network related aspects completed within 3GPP Release 9.
This is one aspect of Release 8/9 related with MBMS.
