The Escort MobileTV is a handy way of receiving over the air television signals with your iOS enabled device. There are limitations to the device such as limited coverage markets. This dongle is ideal for those who wish to watch television on the road or outside of the home network. Since it does not rely on Wi-Fi or phone data the device and service will not tax any cap limits on your phone or data plan. It also has a built-in battery is not to drain your iOS device quickly.
Like most over the air television-viewing devices the Escort MobileTV is dependent on its ability to receive network television signals. Instead of just picking up OTA signals it relies on a secondary service, Dyle mobile TV, which is currently, free but may in the future become subscription-based. What this subscription will provide is unknown as it could be just channel listings or the ability to capture over the air signals.
The Escort MobileTV certainly has potential to be a useful product as long as the user is aware of its current limitations.
