MetroPCS, MCV, Samsung to bring live digital TV to mobile phones via Dyle Mobile TV Service. Samsung Mobile will provide the first smartphone with Dyle, a premium Android device, using ATSC-Mobile technology. MetroPCS and the Mobile Content Venture (MCV) have teamed-up to enable MetroPCS customers to watch live, local broadcast television on their cellular phones later this year.

Dyle Mobile TV is the consumer-facing brand launched by MCV that will deliver live mobile television content from 15 major broadcast groups. At launch, MCV expects to offer the mobile video service on more than 72 stations in 32 markets covering more than 50 percent of the U.S. population.

According to the press release, MetroPCS will be the first wireless service provider to offer Dyle Mobile TV to consumers on devices that are pre-loaded with the Dyle application, enabling customers to watch live TV right out of the box. Using Dyle, mobile consumers, for the first time, are able to watch live national and local news, sports, and entertainment programming via a broadcast television signal. They will also be able to enjoy the local nightly news on the bus, their favorite daytime talk show on their lunch break or live sporting events while running errands.

Samsung smartphones with Dyle will be available later this year in MetroPCS markets and surrounding areas. MetroPCS, MCV and Samsung Mobile will be demonstrating Dyle live mobile digital television service next week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 10-13.

I want to watch more than 72 stations on my Smartphone and I don’t need them all to be local networks either. DISH Network gives me everything that I'm looking for in a TV everywhere provider. They give me all of the same channels as I get at home plus all my DVR recordings. I have hundreds of channels to watch and now matter what programming package I add to my account DISH Networks sling adapter will be able to transfer the channels to the following mobile devices: Smartphone’s, Tablets, Laptops, Blackberry's, iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch. I'm not limited on programming and a co-worker at DISH mentioned to me that DISH customers are now be offered the sling adapter free(provides me TV everywhere)!

This is the power of convergence. Samsung has been a pioneer on the Internet TV platform with their Smart TV lines and now they are bringing that success to mobile TV.
