The new Samsung Galaxy S Lightray from MetroPCS is the first and only phone in the United States to use Dyle Mobile TV, an app that lets you tune in local broadcast television channels.
Fox 5 talent looks pretty good on that 4.6-inch screen. Dyle Mobile uses specially reserved airwaves so it doesn't eat into wi-fi, 3G or 4G service.
Think of the possibilities: You can watch a sporting event, the news, or those "American Idol" results.
Dyle TV is not available in every city yet, but MetroPCS is hoping its new phone and this new app will help bring the world a little closer to you whenever you want it.
What is Dyle Mobile TV?
Dyle TV is an application that allows a consumer to access live local television on the go!
How can I get it?
Dyle TV is free to a consumer as long as the customer activates a MetroPCS 4G service plan. Right now, it is only available on Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G -- that phone is only available from MetroPCS.
How does it work?
It's transmitted directly from a broadcast signal. The same way we might get a signal in our own home. It doesn't use wifi, 3G or 4G service. It doesn't eat up any of your data plan.
Where does it work?
Coverage is not available in all markets and not all channels are available in all markets.
It works in most of the MetroPCS markets right now. The cities include New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and several others. The broadcast partners vary in each area.
Fox 5 is available if you have Dyle in New York City.
Is it available on any other phone?
No, currently it's only available on the Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G. In the future it could be available on other phones.
