Did you know you can watch TV just about anywhere — even when you’re on the road? It’s true. All you have to do is download an app for your smartphone or tablet, or visit a website on your laptop or desktop computer. Then all you have to do is log in and you can watch your favorite TV shows or sporting events live, or download shows to watch offline. Pretty cool, right? And very convenient. I know there have many occasions when I could’ve used the TV Everywhere app. For instance, earlier this month I waited over an hour to re-register my car. And there have also been many times when I had to wait a very long time for a table at a restaurant (we’re a family of six and apparently tables for six are hard to come by). BTW, thanks to TV Everywhere, I’m giving away a prize pack on my dad blog. The prize pack consists of a $25 Visa gift card and a TV Everywhere tablet cover.
TV Everywhere is free. It’s one of the many benefits of being a cable subscriber. It’s easy to use and the app puts you in control of when, how and where to watch TV (like at the in-laws house). With TV Everywhere, you’re not limited to only TV shows in real time. There are a variety of content available via TV Everywhere. For instance, you can build a watch list of TV shows, on-demand movies, or even entire seasons of a show (the app automatically plays the next episode in the series). With TV Everywhere, you can also start, pause and rewind a show. Or you can resume watching across multiple devices. That’s awesome.
TV Everywhere is great for the summer time because many of us travel during this time of the year. But the app is also great during the school year when the new episodes are first shown. I know last year I missed many new episodes because of various after-school activities. But with the TV Everywhere app, you can watch when you’re out and about. I’m not suggesting you watch a show during your kid’s play, but there are times when you are just waiting around. For instance, two of my kids attend a 6-12 grade school. When they have a concert, my six grader performs first. He’s on for 15-20 minutes, then I have wait over an hour before I can hear my high schooler perform. With TV Everywhere, I could wait in the hallway for an hour and watch a show between performances.
BTW, you don’t have to be on the road to use TV Everywhere. You can also use the app or website at home. It’s great for those days you just want to relax on your deck, patio or pool area.
TV Everywhere is actually a group of apps and websites. Each cable company participating in the TV Everywhere program has their own app and website. Just head on over to the TV Everywhere website, find your cable provider, and then download their app.
In conclusion, watch your favorites from TNT, A&E, Travel Channel and may more while you’re on-the-go this summer!
