Some little DAB/DAB+ and DVB-T/DVB-T2 (with HEVC) receiver module which you plug into the microUSB port at the bottom on your phone. It should be smooth with the Fairphone shape, so the width is 73 mm and the thickness 11 mm. Also, it should have some microUSB connector at the bottom to charge your phone even with the receiver module.
So you can save your mobile data when you watch TV or listen to a non-FM radio station.
Well, I currently don’t need such a module. (Well, this need could come in some time. For example, before two years, I had no need for a smartphone and now, I finally bought a Fairphone 2.) But I think there could be some people who have the need for it. Especially the football junkies who want to watch the games live.
Do you mean a module which you connect to your satellite dish and then you watch TV?
This can also be done by some app, especially if you think of a little piano, for those who don’t want to take a “hardware piano” with them.
Hi all, new to forums so I am sorry if I’m doing this wrong.
I have used these with computers to pick up TV/Weather sats/ADSB. I think with an OTG adapter you can use it on a phone but is there is indeed USB in the expansion port on the back then ether a case with full size USB ports or that receiver is what I want. Or could make if I could find the port spec.
Exists DVB-H somewhere anymore? I’ve read that DVB-H was switched off in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I don’t think a pure DVB-H receiver without DAB(+)/DVB-T(2) support would be very useful, especially in countries without DVB-H.
Then you don’t know Germany. There are rarely free WiFis (thanks to Störerhaftung), and data packages have only a small data volume. And I don’t think that this will change here soon. Our European neighbours already laugh at us.
This means that 0.176*0.2= 3,5% of consumers aged 14 years or older consume linear television outside their homes. And most of them don’t use DVB-T as only about 10% have a DVB-T-enabled device.[quote=“tofra, post:6, topic:11528”]
The TV streaming service Zattoo stated that they have more users while big sports events, like a football championship or Olympics. The users want to watch such events live and not later.
I can fully understand. I have to step back to live tickers, when there is a sports event, I’d like to watch, but am not at home…
