About DVB-H
DVB-H is a technology that delivers video to mobile
devices at a resolution of 320 by 240 pixels. It uses a
terrestrial broadcast similar to radio, unlike the satellite
technology used for your DStv Service at home. This
means that you can enjoy Mobile TV on the move,
when in a DVB-H Broadcast coverage area.
