Newest item needed in hurricane kits

LAKE WORTH, FL (WFLX) - A small device is the newest item needed in all hurricane kits.

"As long as your tablet or your smart phone is charged up -- the device which has a battery life of about four hour -- you can watch your local weather broadcast to see what's going on up to the minute around the area," said David Kmoch with Dyle Mobile TV.

Now, thanks to Dyle Mobile TV, if the power goes off during a storm, you can still watch Fox 29 – staying connected to news and weather updates when you need it most.

Representatives with Dyle came out to Coasters Coffee Bar in Lake Worth to show how easy and inexpensive it is to turn your smart phone or tablet into a TV. "You don't use your 3G data plan. It doesn't go against that plan. You don't need WiFi connection. Just the little device that you can purchase at Amazon."

The mobile TV device costs $99. Once you have the device, "You can go to the iTunes App Store of the Google Play Store and download the app for free. It's the Siano Dyle TV app."

What's really cool is if you're driving down 95, and your kids are acting up, 'Here Watch TV!'
"Exactly, it works on the road, as well."

But important to mention -- not for drivers!
