The mobile technology has now merged itself with all sorts of technology making it a handy device. It is not only an appliance used to connect people but also a music player, an internet browsing device and with advancement in technology, a television set.
With everything going mobile, FOX along with other Pearl Mobile DTV broadcasters came up with a new product with the name of ‘Dyle’. It is a mobile TV service for iPhone and iPad users and is available only with Samsung Galaxy S Lightray 4G for android. Although still in its testing stage, it is seemingly becoming very popular due to its convenience. Now television entertainment, whether it is sports or politics, daily soaps or reality shows, will just be at your fingertips. Now you will not have to find your television remotes all over the house but simply take out your cellular phones from your pockets and have fun.
Dyle uses airwaves reserved for TV and it does not rely on 3G, 4G, or WiFi making it even more convenient. The users will not have to face the trouble of buffering as Dyle’s technology provides streaming-less transmission. Being mobile technology it can viewed anywhere in any manner; while driving, cycling, riding.
This product has no limitations on bandwidth and hence can work for a million users at a time without disrupting the transmission or slowing down. The downside of this newly made product is the low quality video hence it can work with poor television signals effectively.
As of now it covers only 41 Metro stations in the United States and even then the coverage is not perfect. There are places and neighborhoods where the signals are negligible such as the west side of Manhattan in New York City.

The number of channels covered also varies from city to city with 6 being the maximum number of television signals received. It covers ABC, CBS, and CW, NBC, and FOX, PBS, and ION, kids’ channel Qubo, Telemundo and Univision. It takes about 8 seconds to change a channel which does makes it tiresome. But the upside is that Dyle shows the user exactly what’s on at a certain television channel at a certain time without waiting for the streaming to be completed.
Another drawback of this newly launched product is that it cannot pause, record and/or rewind which is a hassle because while receiving a call the television will get interrupted. But these are the things the product designers are working on and hopefully the new updated version will resolve these issues. Also the reception isn’t perfect.
For now, Dyle is available for free in the market till the end of this year after which the owners reserve the right to charge for content, though I doubt that will happen anytime soon.
Till then enjoy television with Dyle on Mobile and share your experience with us by commenting below.
