The Fox TV Network unveiled a TV everywhere plan to its affiliates Tuesday that will allow them to stream network content, in addition to their local content, through a dedicated Fox app and on the Web.
The unit, which attaches to the bottom of the Apple iPads and iPhones, contains a mobile DTV tuner and turns conventional earphones into a receive antenna that can pull in UHF and high-band VHF signals.
Later this year, MetroPCS will offer a new Samsung smartphone with a mobile DTV tuner chip and telescoping antenna. Subscribers will be able to register for Mobile Content Venture’s Dyle service and watch “national and local” programming broadcast by TV stations. More announcements from MCV are forthcoming.
Counting the 20 markets from previous announcement, Mobile Content Venture has now promised to introduce the service in 32 markets by the end of this year. New markets on list include Seattle, Miami, Denver, Cleveland, St. Louis, Charlotte, Raleigh, Kansas City, Columbus, Las Vegas, Tulsa and Montgomery.
