Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's

The Lightray is the first handset offered by MetroPCS to include Dyle TV — live broadcast television from major networks. Mobile TV has been offered on handsets before. Is the Lightray the first to get it right?

The Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G would be an average, middle-shelf product were it sold by any other carrier, but at MetroPCS it's top shelf for sure thanks to the live mobile TV feature baked in. Dyle TV, as it is branded, offers video fanatics mobile television in an otherwise conservative package from Samsung.

I like Metro--

--they're a good alternative.

But nowhere near enough to justify paying $460 for a phone.

Did you get to try out the Dyle TV at all?

Just wondering, I skimmed a bit but didn't see anything on it besides you mentioning the antenna.
They did in the media section of the review. apparently dyle TV looked worse than a 70s era CRT. I'm wondering if they can post some screenshots or screen captures of Dyle, just so we know what it looks like.
Yes, there's a large section on it.
