Watch Freeview on Your Mobile Phone

By: Gill Critchley

Mobile phone companies have been trying to get Television into phones for a while now but they have never come to much in the UK. This may be due to a lack of interest from the general public who don't seem very impressed with the idea.

This said, LG's new HB620T enables you to watch TV on it and does seem to be grabbing more attention.

A reason for this phone gaining more interest than previous mobile TV attempts may be due to the DVB-T digital tuner that it has. Instead of the usual DVB-H tuner, this phone has the same tuner that you would find attached to your television set at home, meaning that with this phone, there are things you can watch on channels besides the usual, limited choice offered by previous mobile phones with TV.

The screen is of course still very small but this is acceptable as it is a mobile phone and if the screen was made any bigger, the phone would be considered too bulky to be desirable.

Therefore, the 2 inch widescreen display that this phone sports is good enough.

Most mobile phones don't include such a list of features as this one and it can also support HSDPA downloads and manages to squeeze in Bluetooth and a 2-megapixel camera.

It is not known if there will be any mobile phone deals on this phone when it comes out as there is still no price for the UK yet or even a definite release date, but it should be out in the near future.




Other mobile phones that offer TV have usually got a limited choice of channels that you can watch whereas on this one you can watch freeview.

Most mobile phones don't include such a long list of features as this one does.
