ESCORT Announces MobileTV Android Receiver - TV on the Go!
ESCORT Inc., today announced it plans to expand its Dyle Mobile TV service to include compatibility with tablets and smartphones for Android. The ESCORT MobileTV accessory previously launched compatibility on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices in December 2012.
ESCORT MobileTV is a miniature digital TV receiver that works with the free iDTV USA app, soon to be available in the Google Play Store. Available without a subscription fee through 2013, Dyle mobile TV gives consumers access to live, local broadcast television across more than 90 stations in 35 markets, reaching up to 55 percent of the nation's population. Now, users can watch live entertainment, sports and breaking news without the need to tap into wireless data plans, avoiding 3G/4G, Wi-Fi or data plan requirements and costs.
"Teaming up with iDTV USA and Dyle mobile TV has enabled ESCORT to deliver mobile digital TV for customers on the go," said John Larson , President & CEO of ESCORT. "Adding to our successful product release of the Apple compatible ESCORT MobileTV, we are now including Android customers who will soon be able to view their favorite TV programs while traveling."
"By addressing the significant installed base of Android smartphones and tablets, ESCORT will play an important role in making Mobile TV available to a large segment of US consumers," said Salil Dalvi and Erik Moreno , co-General Managers of Mobile Content Venture.
