Never seen a phone with DVB-T yet. DVB-H is similar but not compatible.

Nokia trialled a DVB-H broadcast in Auckland about a year or so ago but this is no longer operating and I'm not aware of any plans to roll out DVB-H in New Zealand. Apparently it has been looked at but at the end of the day somebody has to pay for it and mobile TV seems to have failed miserably in most countries where it has been deployed, it certainly hasn't been the 'killer" mobile app that some carriers predicted.

How about using something like webguide or Orb to transcode and stream it over wifi/3g.

Can't imagine any phones out there at the moment that would have enough processing power to get anywhere near decoding those streams natively on the fly.
