over in the "Dyle Expands Mobile TV Footprint and Content Offering" discussion:

I wish this service was available on all wireless carriers. . .

I don't know what the deal is with Americans and why MobileTv & mobile payments haven't cought on in the U.S., I really don't. Aren't we a mobile society? I'd like to watch more video content on my smartphone, this capability should be available on all carriers, and all smartphone!

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.

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.

over in the "MetroPCS Galaxy S Lightray 4G, With Dyle Mobile TV, Costs $459" discussion:


Thank God there is a principle on the planet called choice.
If one thinks I am going to pay $459 for a phone on the Metro network, think again.
Rather pay $100 for a Chinese clone on GSM.

over in the "Hands On with Dyle Mobile TV" discussion:

Needs Fine Tuning (no pun intended)

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

1. Didnt Qualcomm try something like this with MediaFlo?

2. Dyle is a poor name, and it uses the font from SyFy TV, which is likely to have issues later if it gets bigger.

3. If this technology is marketed to consumers left and right with an abundance of TV networks, manufactures, and devices on the market - there will be no need to charge for it. 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.
