Digital Media Broadcasting (DMB) via Satellite is available in Korea. SK Telecom (SKY) has a very cool handset for the service available - The IMB-1000.

The IMB-1000 features a 2.4 inch QVGA Touch-screen, Transflash slot and a 2MP digital camera. The screen slides up revealing the keyboard. It looks like there are only six keys, but I think the have two pressure points. The IMB-1000 measures 116x52x25.3mm and weighs 153g.
When receiving DMB broadcasts the battery life apparently becomes an issue.
More details on the Sky IMB-1000 site (Korean). More photos on Popco.net (Korean).

DMB is either broadcasted via satellite or terrestrial. SK Telecom has good background information on Satellite DMB. DMB is only available in Korea. Japan wants to start something similar next year. There is a field test of T-DMB in Germany.
