Radar detector maker ESCORT has launched a Dyle Mobile DTV dongle for an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
It delivers live TV including local broadcasts to a phone, tablet or iPod when used with an app.
Called the ESCORT MobileTV, it includes an ATSC-Mobile tuner and built-in rechargeable battery. It works with Dyle Mobile DTV programming which is available to over half the U.S. population via more than 90 stations in 35 markets.
Dyle is a type of Mobile DTV system launched by a group of broadcasters that includes NBC and Fox called Mobile Content Venture (MCV). It also offers programming from ABC, CBS and other leading networks.
Through Dyle, you can watch in your car or on-the-go, some of the same live programs that appear on your livingroom TV.
The ESCORT dongle is available now at Amazon.com and Escortinc.com at an introductory price of $99.95.
The dongle uses the iDTV USA app from the Apple App Store. Once the app is downloaded, the dongle will automatically select the location of the user to scan for local mobile DTV channels.
The app is compatible with iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 plus iPad, iPad mini, iPod touch (5th generation) and an optional Lighting to 30-pin adapter.
