D2M technology works similar to listening to FM radio on a smartphone, where a receiver taps into radio frequencies. Also it is direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting, in which a dish antenna receives direct broadcast signals from satellites and transmits them to the receiver, which is known as set-top box.

In the paper “D2M Broadcast 5G Broadband Convergence Roadmap for India” published by IIT Kanpur in 2022, it notes that currently available mobile devices do not support this technology. To start this technique, advanced smartphone, low noise amplifier, baseband filter and receiver will be required. Whose development is being worked on.
