Dyle mobile TV is partnering with broadcasters in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to provide live television on mobile devices from FOX 4, NBC 5, WFAA/ABC 8, CBS 11, Telemundo 39 and Qubo.
Dyle is provided over a digital overlay network, so usage doesn’t count against wireless data plans. Tuners are available for iPhones and iPads. Also, the Dyle-enabled Samsung (News - Alert) Galaxy S Lightray 4G Smartphone is on the market and available through MetroPCS.
“It is through this collaboration with our valued Dallas-Fort Worth broadcast station partners that we are able to bring the community this unique offering of live broadcast television on such a large scale in this market,” said Erik Moreno and Salil Dalvi, co-general managers of Mobile Content Venture, which oversees the Dyle TV brand. “Whether viewers are tuning into local news for a breaking story, catching a live sporting event or tuning into Spanish-language television, Dyle satisfies the viewers' growing demand for TV everywhere, anywhere, anytime, without tapping into their data plans.”
Dyle mobile TV is part of the media industry’s TV Everywhere effort to make linear and on-demand content available to authenticated customers both in and out of the home and on multiple platforms. It’s operated by the MCV, a joint-venture of 12 major broadcast groups including Belo Corp., Cox (News - Alert) Media Group, E.W. Scripps Co., Gannett Broadcasting, Hearst Television Inc., Media General Inc., Meredith Corp., Post-Newsweek Stations Inc. and Raycom Media, all of which are part of the standalone entity known as Pearl, LLC, as well as Fox, ION Television and NBC.
Currently working with 119 stations in 40 markets, Dyle mobile TV reaches 57 percent of the U.S. population, including Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, New York, and Los Angeles.
“NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth is proud to be among the local Dallas-Fort Worth stations to partner with Dyle to further extend our broadcasting to a wider audience and enable viewers to enjoy our local news programming in a way that works with their busy on-the-go lives,” said Tom Ehlmann, president and general manager of NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth. “With today’s multiscreen new media landscape, Dyle is a relevant and necessary product to address our audience’s needs.”
