O2 will test its digital video broadcasting for handhelds (DVB-H) technology next week in the UK. The six month trial period will allow 400 subscribers access to 16 streaming video channels over their mobile phones. Nokia and Arqiva teamed up with O2 to facilitate the service. During the trial period of the service, the user needs to attach a special receiver with the DVB-H technology, but Nokia plans on embedding the technology in future models.
