All is not simple and straightforward in the mobile TV arena.
There is a battle for supremacy between two competing standards: DVB-H for Digital Video Broadcasting for Handsets and DMB for Digital Multimedia Broadcasting.
Dr Chan Yeob Yeun, vice president and research fellow in charge of mobile TV at LG Electronics, said: “DMB offers twice the number of frames a minute as DVB-H and does not drain mobile batteries as quickly.”
The Japanese, Koreans and Ericsson of Sweden are backing DMB.
Nokia, by contrast, is backing DVB-H, and is involved in mobile TV trials that use its art-deco style media phone, which has a larger than usual screen for TV or visual radio (a way of accompanying a radio programme with related text and pictures).
Even if the standards battle is resolved, there is the thorny issue of broadcasting rights.
