The DVB terrestrial digital television (DVB-T) standard provides the ability for mobile reception of digital television and data services. However, the service platform architecture specified in current DVB Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) standard for set-top box is not quite suitable for mobile devices due to the characteristics of the various terminals. This paper presents an intelligent middleware architecture for mobile digital television applications. The architecture adopts the learning mechanisms of a classifier system and is designed to be MHP-based and compatible. Two mobile applications, mobile Teletext and Electronic Programming Guide (EPG), were implemented in Java within this model. The partial results show that this approach is feasible.
