Dyle mobile TV is now available in three more markets, improving its total reach to 57% of Americans. According to Dyle, customers in Baltimore, Jacksonville, and Salt Lake City now have access to its mobile TV service, which offers 116 stations across 39 markets. In addition to the network expansion, Dyle has signed another broadcasting group, Sinclair, which runs a number of NBC and CBS affiliates in major markets around the country. Dyle mobile TV is available on the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G, which is sold by MetroPCS. Dyle uses ATSC-M/H, a special mobile variant of the same technology used for over-the-air digital TV broadcasts. Dyle TV content is free to access with the proper equipment.
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.
