Families once huddled around televisions the size of a refrigerator to watch the latest episode of “The Brady Bunch,” “M.A.S.H.” or “Seinfeld.” Those days are long gone and now, thanks to the Internet and a service called WatchTVEverywhere, New Hope Vision Subscribers can enjoy those classic shows or current prime-time hits from anywhere there is an Internet connection.
With WatchTVEverywhere, you could catch the ESPN pre-game show while tailgating in front of Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Watching Captain Kirk match wits with Mr. Spock on a handheld device is no longer science fiction. It’s now a reality that you can enjoy the Syfy channel, and many others, once you sign up for NHTC’s WatchTVEverywhere plan.
How much does it cost?
Currently NHTC provides this feature at no extra cost to subscribers. This may change over time depending on new requirements made by TV networks. Cellular data rates apply.
Where can I WatchTVEverywhere?
You can watch these channels from anywhere your device can receive an Internet signal. Wired connections and in-home Wi-Fi will provide the best quality, and picture quality is determined by signal strength. For those using a tablet or smartphone, you will need to download the network’s app from your device’s app store.
What programs are available?
Each TV network makes their own decision about what to make available on WatchTVEverywhere, so it’s best to log in and check for your favorite programs.
Why aren’t all programs available?
Broadcasting rights are complicated. A TV network may have the right to transmit a show or movie, but only to TV sets and not on WatchTVEverywhere. Once again, it depends on the TV network.
Will other networks become available?
Yes. NHTC is working with many different program providers to expand the number of networks and programs available on WatchTVEverywhere.
