MetroPCS and Mobile Content Venture (MCV) are teaming-up to bring MetroPCS customers live, local broadcast television on their mobile phones later this year. The new service will be available on the upcoming Dyle Mobile TV-enabled Samsung smartphone, which is touted as a “premium Android device.”
Mentioned Dyle Mobile TV is MCV’s consumer-facing brand that will deliver live mobile television content from 15 major broadcast groups including Pearl LLC, FOX, ION Television, Bahakel, Univision, Telemundo and NBC. At launch, MCV expects to offer the mobile video service on more than 72 stations in 32 markets covering more than 50% of the U.S. population.
End-users on their end will 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 select MetroPCS markets, and on display at CES in Las Vegas next week.
