this would of been great on the esteem since we have hdmi output on our phones.
Geez man can you be anymore negative?

Also to my knowledge, I don't think the phones are coming with those pull out antenna's. I could be wrong, but I think they said that there will be a chip built into the phone or another " built in " antenna.
Okay, here's my 2 cents worth:
As mentioned earlier, go to Asia. Seriously, like half the phones over there had antennas for TV. From what I saw, everyone watches tv when on the bus or train or sitting & waiting or what ever. Very popular. But remember it is BROADCAST tv, not cable. So most of your shows won't be viewable unless it's on a broadcast tv station. We have an NBC and PBS here & that's it. That's going to be the real problem, once again as was previously mentioned, the content available. And from what I have heard/read it is not completely over the air, there is a small digital "key" that will be sent over the network to decipher the digital signal. Nothing is truly free anymore. I could be wrong, but from what I have read, if your phone is disconnected your tv won't work either.
Actually I used to have Sprint TV, which even before was MobiTV or something. THAT was cool! Wasn't always very smooth but it was cool. But then channels kept leaving the lineup and eventually it became a pointless application. I don't remember what it was, but I remember something big was happening & we were watching FOX news LIVE on my little flip phone. Now even most TV shows are just little clips. What's the point? Now if, IF this DYLE TV thing will actually BROADCAST their own signal with a TV lineup, then that could work. But as I understood it, it will just pick up whatever stations are already broadcasting in your area.
It was pretty cool overseas, even though the signal was analog. Lots of channels. Not so sure if it's going to work over here though, it would be nice if it did. Also wonder about some of the lawsuits mentions earlier. I can buy TV and not pay any license fees, why would it be different on a cell phone? Hmmmm......
