With the threat of BT’s DAB TV service looming, ROK has flung open its mobile telly doors to twelve new Windows handsets.

Its 2.5G service is now compatible with over 37 different handsets, while Virgin’s The Trilogy is still the only announced phone that’ll be able to pick up the new DAB broadcasts.

The new list includes such pocket luminaries as T-Mobile’s MDA Compact and the I-Mate JAM, which join a raft of Sony Erics and Nokias.

If you don’t have a 3G handset, it’s a handy alternative way to get bulletins from CNN or clips from the Cartoon Network, and each channel only costs £1 per month.

If watching National Geographic doesn’t appeal, you can also stream programmes from your Sky digibox to your mobile via its BLCX box, which costs £250.
