The Commonwealth Games, which will see the BBC test 4K broadcasts at a public event, is also being used to introduce a disbelieving population to the concept of streaming live TV events over the 4G network.

The 4G part of the BBC's tech trials will see EE, Huawei and Qualcomm come together to put 4G demo phones in the BBC's Showcase event in Glasgow, which'll come with 4G SIMs and the weighty data allowance required to demo 4G TV broadcasts. Huawei has the technical aspects of the trial outlined here, if you fancy reading about Evolved Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service technologies. [BBC]
