Samsung Moment and LG Lotus coming with Mobile DTV
Back in 2008 we informed you that both LG and Samsung joined forces and would be working on phones that support ATSC Digital TV (DTV) broadcasts within the US. As this would be using existing over-the-air DTV bandwidth, it would be free and only require a compatible handset, unlike Qualcomm's FLO TV that uses its own network bandwidth and charges a monthly fee. Yesterday we heard that LG will be introducing a DTV version of their Lotus at CES later this week, and now it appears that Samsung will join the bandwagon with a DTV version of the Android-powered Moment. All we have to do now is wait for the Mobile DTV programming network to become avaliable, as testing is set to begin in Baltimore and Washington, DC by March.

No, because it requires new hardware inside the phone.
