The DTV feature is a major enhancement to feature phones. Most MyPhone basic handsets only support analog television broadcast. Currently, DTV feature is only available in few Android smartphones.

MyPhone is yet to announce whether the unit will support “full-seg” digital broadcast where users can receive multiple channels in standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) formats, or limited to “1seg” (oneseg) channel per TV station.

Users can only maximize the use of DTV in areas where DTV signals are available such as Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao City. [techthetruth]
