In this paper we propose a new service platform for the distribution of location and time-sensitive data that augments and enhances real-time experience of the city using mobile digital TV broadcasting technology. The limitation of the unidirectional communication is alleviated by the proposal of introducing context-based filters-applied locally-that allow for automatically selecting the most relevant information to be viewed by the retrieving/receiviother ng party.
