> given my experience with other portable aerials, it's more likely that DVB-T just isn't suited to portable use.

Even in the home where people have reliable DVB aerials and/or satellite dishes, a lot of content is either watched over the internet or has been previously recorded. Since phones can play both on the hoof, the demand for a mobile TV receiver must be very small. Possibly handy if you're camping in an area with no 3G and your phone has no storage and you can't read a book.
