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.

That -- until light streaming television this is not to eat at and you have the first found when. As is out there I've got CES Samsung galaxy S light -- forgy. From alcohol isn't powerful it's not the first phone that is -- service that's only available on MetroPCS is actually available today launching today and and it's the first -- -- picks up on live TV signals here -- -- -- again and BC and fox.

Here shuttle is there any clear if people in line has -- -- and -- right that's the other big risk is. As you mentioned -- the -- pass attempts to. Deal device that works. So that's the big question from news to people really want this to people people paid us -- -- I group in Florida where.
