Audiovox mobile TV to support Kindle Fire
Editor | 31-12-2013
In a telling expansion of its business, Audiovox mobiletv, the Dyle-enabled wireless mobile TV receiver, has been made compatible with Kindle HD Fire tablets.
The new compatibility, made possible through a chipset from mobile TV pioneer Siano, complements existing iOS and Android smartphones and tablet availability for the free live TV service. Dyle comprises a joint venture of 12 major broadcast groups, available in 38 US markets, reaching 57% of the country.
Content delivered includes live broadcast TV such as local and national news, sports and entertainment programming to mobile devices. Audiovox mobiletv includes a programme guide, pause and rewind features, and an internal battery providing up to four hours of television viewing.
"The ability to add Amazon Kindle Fire users expands the growing list of consumers who want the live TV experience at their fingertips and provides our retail partners with another compelling reason to support the product," explained Audiovox president Tom Malone. "We believe this development, combined with the continued addition of stations and markets, makes this a must-have product for consumers who want to enjoy their favourite programming across multiple screens while at home or on-the-go."
"With the additional compatibility across Amazon Kindle HD Fire tablets, Dyle mobile TV technology will reach a new target audience that values a range of content on their mobile devices," added Erik Moreno, co-general manager of Mobile Content Venture, the joint venture’s title.
