Previous attempts at streaming local television signals to smartphones have failed, but the new no-subscription Dyle service is betting that folks will tune in. Bridget Carey chats with CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng about the first smartphone with Dyle, and the challenges ahead for the technology.

I am Bridget Carey week -- CNET and say it's cute and I'm here with -- change.
