Orange is to offer high definition mobile TV to users of hybrid mobile/fixed Unik handsets.

From next month, its customers in France will have access to more than 60 HD mobile TV channels, 20 of which will be with unlimited access.

In September, Orange announced the world’s first 3G+ UMA platform, combining the two technologies to allow customers with hybrid phones to connect whether at home, near an Orange WiFi hotspot or on the move through the 3G network.

Initially, the mobile HDTV service will only be available through LG’s KF757 handset or on the Sony Ericsson G705u.

Orange currently has one million Unik subscribers.

The channels are available on the Orange TV Player or, if the handset does not support the software, on the Orange World portal.
