Q: What is Dyle® mobile TV?
A: Dyle is a technology that enables local and national TV programming to be received directly to mobile devices, allowing consumers to experience live (not streaming) local and national television including news, sports, and entertainment programming when they are on-the-go. Dyle does this by utilizing a new over-the-air broadcast technology that uses airwaves specifically reserved for TV, which are separate from Wi-Fi and 3G/4G cellular signals. As a result, consumers can watch live TV on their mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets) and there's no impact to their wireless data plan.
Q: When you say live television, how is this accomplished?
A: Dyle lets consumers view LIVE TV programming on their mobile devices without requiring an Internet connection or WiFi access. Dyle mobile TV content does not travel across wireless networks. Instead it uses the ATSC M/H, the mobile standard for broadcast television in the United States.
Q: So this is not streaming video?
A: No, streaming video requires an Internet connection or WiFi access. Dyle uses the broadcast network to deliver live, local television to mobile devices.
Q: Can Dyle be used everywhere in the US?
A: Dyle delivers live, local and national television to 38 markets (120+ television stations), reaching over 57 percent of the US population. Additional markets and stations will be added in the future. For coverage, see www.dyle.tv/coverage-map
Q: Where can consumers use Dyle mobile TV?
A: Mobile TV broadcasts can be used anywhere that the TV signal can reach, including moving vehicles. This means customers can watch while on the bus or a carpool, catching up with news over their lunch hour at a coffee shop, outside a dressing room while waiting for a loved one to finish trying on an outfit or hanging out in a park with friends. While it won't work underground on the subway, it will work on a subway or train when they come above ground.
Q. What programming is available on Dyle mobile TV in my market?
A: Dyle viewers in each market will have access to between one and six channels with a range of local and national news, sports, and entertainment programming. Participating broadcasters, which vary by market, include ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Qubo, Telemundo, and Univision. For programming line in your area, see www.dyle.tv/coverage-map.
