LG has announced a couple new devices that will support mobile TV standards that are just now available in America. LG will be showing two products at CES in a week or so including a mobile phone and a portable DVD player that can pick up ATSC-M/H broadcasts.

 

LG also says that it will be offering the LG2160-A ATSC-M/H tuner chip to other manufacturers. Manufacturers specifically named include Dell and Kenwood. That means the new tuner chip will end up in notebooks and maybe car stereo equipment.
