question for admins

Are you able to post a screen capture, or a picture taken from another camera so we can see the quality of Dyle TV? The review said it was downright awful - which reminded me of when I was using a Sony Ericsson w600i running on EDGE, that phone also offered a tv service back in the day, but it was so low quality, so terrible, for sports highlights, you couldn't even see the ball (or puck, or football, etc). Just wondering how bad Dyle is.
Last I recall the spec it is using is basically '240p' youtube quality. 480x272 or thereabouts video resolution and 2 channel AAC audio.

Needs Fine Tuning (no pun intended)

There are a few issues I see with this...

One reason is its not currently legal to charge for OTA television in any form, HDTV included. Advertising pays for that.

4. Charge a slight markup on the devices, $5-$10, and use part of that to fund networks adding ATSC-M/H to their local transmitters.

Thats all for now.
I'm very excited about this!!! It's about time this mobile DTV standard takes off. I will be making this a requirement for my next smartphone, this, and NFC!!!Bring on the future!!!!
#3 and #4 sound like reasons it should/could work.

I'm not sold on "Dyle", either, but they claim it's "fun, friendly and a 'wink' to retro" (as in the channel "dial" on a 1970s TV.)

I don't see why a font would be an issue. Many fonts look like...
