Movio will be the first wholesale mobile broadcast entertainment service to launch in Britain and will enable operators to offer consumers a simple to use and reliable digital TV and radio service. The service is broadcast using the digital audio broadcasting network and is navigated through the world's first implementation of DAB delivered electronic program guide on a mobile TV phone.
