There's a new way to watch live TV on the go. 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. Our executive editor who -- talk about. -- new air -- TV and you're Smart about puts it in about this isn't a service called dial. 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. It's pretty good considering that I'm at my office I can't get in on a regular eighteen -- -- right I was surprised. But with arresting to me -- -- changes that we seen this technology before. Over two years ago. It failed a session with Qualcomm. TV service and similar services. Taking so long press -- And that's exactly like the story is so fast it. There are a lot of factors of why it took so long -- to come out one it's tremendous risk for the broadcasters for doing this. To mean the technology it's it's. Not exactly widely used. If companies want people actually. -- -- -- -- -- -- It's -- then but -- know if you -- -- -- -- friend. Well it's it's pricey it's it's a little clock and this is.

Certain channels this is you know it's not the best substitute but. It's a decently on -- and safety in mind your TV you can actually turn this into. 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.
