Pretty cool! ... unfortunately I am no longer in London : (

The idle 3G spectrum in UK has been the subject of idle speculation for some time, and mobile TV trials have been promised, and now Orange and T-Mobile UK will jointly pilot a new mobile TV service in West London using NextWave's TDtv solution. The pilot, scheduled for the second half of 2008, is supposed to show how mobile operators share widely-available unpaired 3G spectrum and a TDtv broadcast network. A similar trial has been done in Bristol in UK before, with four operators (Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica and 3).

During the six month trial, users will receive 24 high-resolution TV channels along with 10 digital radio stations.
