However since digital TV is a different technology from cellular transmissions, it is open to GSM carriers as well. T-Mobile has not revealed the extent of the trials, nor have they announced which technology the they will ultimately choose for digital TV. T-Mobile has also been a test partner of DVB-H provider Modeo.
