Several technology companies, led by group of mobile phone manufacturers, including Nokia and Motorola, have teamed up to develop standards for upcoming mobile TV. Several companies have already announced their phones that support European DVB-T's mobile extension, DVB-H, but now companies try to find standards for other problems surrounding the inevitable adoption of TV-on-cell-phone concept.
Several phone manufacturers and operators hope that once so-called third generation mobile phone networks develop, the video and simulcasted TV content will become one of the driving forces behind the consumers' acceptance for the new technology. First commercial, large-scale mobile phone TV services are about to start in Japan this year and after years of testing, they are aimed to launch in Europe in 2005 as well.
