Nokia today announced a partnership with Crown Castle to trial DVB-H technology in the United States. DVB is the European digital TV standard, and DVB-H is the variant designed specifically for the TV transmission to handheld devices such as mobile phones. The technology trial has already begun in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Later trials will test the service with consumers. If the trials are successful, Crown Castle owns 5 MHz of national spectrum in the L band (1670-1675 MHz) that it could use to deploy the technology nationwide. The company won the spectrum in an April 2003 FCC auction. Crown Castle is a major cell-tower owner, with over 10,000 sites nationwide.
