Both systems use ground-based repeaters to fill in many gaps where the satellite signals may be blocked, for example, by large buildings or by tunnels. 1worldspace 1worldspace Satellite Radio (previously known as WorldSpace) is an international satellite radio service that broadcasts about 70 digital audio channels, most by subscription and some free of charge, to many countries around the world. 1worldspace utilizes two geostationary satellites covering Africa, the Middle East, most of Asia, and much of Western Europe.

More recently, a successor format called DVB-NGH (Next-Generation Handheld) has been standardized, intended for terrestrial mobile TV use with several key improvements over DVB-H. Trials are also underway at this writing, with initial consumer products not yet available. ISDB 1seg ISDB 1seg stands for Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting—One Segment, and is a variant of the ISDB-T standard. It is widely used in Japan for mobile terrestrial digital video, audio, and data broadcasting services, where it was introduced in 2005.

The ATSC system allows transmission of both standard definition (SD) and high-definition (HD or HDTV) program services using special coders/decoders (referred to as codecs) to fit the video and audio signals into the available bandwidth. Capabilities include widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio pictures, surround sound audio, electronic program guide, multicasting, and datacasting. ATSC DTV is transmitted over the air in the same VHF and UHF bands as NTSC television but with a modulation system called 8-VSB, using vacant channels in the NTSC channel allocation plan for the country.
