Dyle mobile TV, the mobile broadcast service that delivers local TV feeds over the air to smartphones, tablets and laptops, is getting a new receiver. Audiovox mobiletv has launched a wireless mobile TV receiver designed to bring free live TV to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The Dyle mobile TV app, developed by Siano and available from the App Store and Google Play, will interface with the $130 Audiovox mobile TV receiver to enable the delivery of Dyle signals to devices without the need for a clunky external converter.

"Our partnership with Dyle expands the mobile television experience by expanding the availability of broadcast television to literally millions of Apple and Android users across the US," said Tom Malone, president of Audiovox. "Our Audiovox receiver provides both the convenience of wireless accessibility and the ability to work with a broad set of devices and screens to deliver the live, local TV experience consumers demand."

Dyle mobile TV, operated by Mobile Content Venture (MCV), a joint-venture of 12 major broadcast groups, is available in 38 markets, reaching 57 % of the US. It delivers live broadcast TV outside of the 3G/4G network, including local and national news, sports and entertainment programming to mobile devices.

"The addition of the Audiovox accessory marks a pivotal point for Dyle by offering an exceptionally revolutionary product for mobile television," said Erik Moreno, co-general manager of MCV. "We look forward to continuing to expand our network footprint and ability to deliver service to a wider consumer audience of iOS and Android users."
