Dyle to cover half US population with mobile TV

Dyle, the mobile TV service, has added more channels and markets to its roster ahead of its official 2012 launch. The additional 17 channels brings the total offering to over 90 stations, available to over half the US population.

Seven broadcast networks will be participating in the service, with the total number of launch markets raised to 35 and covering 55 percent of the population once it is launched later this year.

Dyle aims to offer broadcasting to mobile TV tuners in a similar way to Qualcomm with its FLO TV service, which is believed to have failed due to the combination of a required subscription and the required tuners not being prevalent enough on the market. The Mobile Content Venture, a joint venture of 12 major broadcast firms, operates Dyle and aims to not charge a subscription.

Supported handsets were announced during CES, with availability expected later this year. The service is also made possible on tablets, demonstrated by Belkin using an iPad. [via Zatz Not Funny]
