Dial into live TV on your smartphone with Dyle

Dial into live TV on your smartphone with Dyle
The other day, we told you that MetroPCS and Dyle Mobile TV had teamed up with Mobile Content Ventures. The latter is a collection of networks like Fox, Universal, Telemundo, NBC and others. The result will be live, local and national television on certain MetroPCS handsets soon. Even phones that ship without a tuner will be able to use Dyle with the installation of an antenna accessory and the Dyle mobile app. The app will be available for both iOS and Android devices.
According to The Verge, Dyle demonstrated the reception over a Samsung reference device at CES 2012 and the picture, while not always reliable, was "bright and clear". But unlike the current streaming videos you watch on your smartphone, using the Dyle system won't count against your monthly data allowance. A Wi-Fi or cellular connection is not required. As long as you can put up with some commercials, you will be able to catch sitcoms, sports news and even novelas on your phone.

Looks like its going to be garbage. I can see it now needing to plug some big adapter in your phone only to have no tv signal everywhere you go. Nothing thats pics up atenna tv works now why will it on a cell. Just get slingbox. And if your worried bout data use wifi.

You can get antenna TV...by Federal law it must be broadcast. I live OFF GRID..I watch it every night. I get 40 channels. I live in the desert between Tucson and Phoenix. Fedex and UPS wont deliver but my antenna does..the trick is an HD antenna.
