Live TV on your phone and tablet
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.

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.
Twenty years ago we had hurricane -- everyone gathered around the battery powered television to get like news and we digital television is harder now right so this I can see is being very painful or being able that -- Atlantans during a power outage so.
