Philips will be a part of bringing TV to mobile phones in the US. The company said it will have DVB-H chipsets in phones arriving on US shores next year. DVB-H is the standard that broadcasts a pocket sized version of regular TV channels on a frequency separate from cellular operations. DVB-H is already in testing here and in Europe and is expected to launch in Europe before the World Cup begins next summer. Philips expects handsets will launch here some time after that during 2006. Recently Verizon announced they would not use DVB-H as rumored, but would offer subscribers TV using Qualcomm's FLO technology beginning in 2006 as well.
