CNET: "Watching March Madness in a crowded bar? You need this app!"
Now you can tune-in wherever you go! TUNITY is a FREE app that allows you to hear any muted, live TV’s audio directly on your mobile device. Simply scan the TV, let Tunity locate the channel and stream the audio through your headphones or bluetooth speaker.
Where Should I Use Tunity?
To put it simply—ANYWHERE!
BARS & RESTAURANTS – Next time you're at a sports bar, hear all the action from the game YOU want to hear!
GYMS – Tune in to any TV and move freely about the gym without disconnecting!
UNIVERSITIES – If your roommate is asleep or studying, Tunity lets you watch TV without disturbing them!
WAITING AREAS, AIRPORTS, HOSPITALS – Don’t just stare at a muted TV when you can pass the time by fully tuning in to whatever it is you’re watching!
HARD OF HEARING – Those with a hearing impairment can listen to the TV at a volume that works best for them, without affecting anyone else in the room!
Don't just take our word for it:
Ryan Hoover - Founder, Product Hunt: "Really clever. This would be a great companion at the gym to listen to muted TV's in front of rows of elliptical machines"
CNET: "Tunity streams TV audio to your smartphone…and it's darn cool…the app has the potential to be a huge hit"
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We've optimized Tunity to only use your GPS at very specific moments and for the minimal amount of time needed.

Why didn’t I think of this
For years I’ve been had the problem of not being able to hear the TVs at bars. I’ve asked the bartenders to turn the volume on a TV and they always said no. Other than sporting events, what’s the point in having the TVs on then? I’d still like to hear the announcers for sporting events but at least I can see what’s happening. That’s not the case for anything else. Even the news I can only see the “Breaking News” bar but have no idea what the anchors are saying. Some bars have TV shows and even movies on - why? What’s the point? And don’t even get me started on closed captioning. It’s so delayed and there’s no point in trying to follow it.
Because of Tunity, now people can actually know what’s going on on the TV. I don’t usually write reviews but I felt as if I had to because of how often I use Tunity. Great customer service too. I reached out one time to ask a question and they were very prompt with their response. It’s one of those thing where it makes you think, “Why didn’t I think of that?” I wish I had , but it doesn’t matter - as long as I have it now.
At an airport, variable delay
Saw the sign to “hear this TV” and decided try the app. Tried syncing at least 8 times, and it seems completely unable to lock on to the channel (CBS) that is on. Tried searching directly for the channel, you can type in the first character, and the app locks up when typing “b” for CBS. Locks up and then crashes. Seems like a nice idea, completely worthless execution.
How about letting us search for the channel manually?
Edit: The next two times I was at an airport I decided to give it a try again, not sure if I downloaded the same version or a new were version because I had deleted it after the previous attempt. This time everything locked in quick enough, but I noticed that I had to keep adjusting the delay because it seemed that it kept on wandering. Only one out of the three times that I have tried this app has it been successful listening to a TV at an airport. I’ll probably keep trying just because of boredom while waiting for planes. As a media professional I am extremely adept at detecting sync issues between audio and video, so what I was adjusting may not bother other people.

Most used app on my phone
Tunity is my most used app on my phone. I’m a gym goer and travel a lot for work and I use Tunity every time I go to the gym and airport. There are always talk shows on the TVs and I’m never able to hear what they’re talking about. With Tunity I can quickly take a picture of the TV and hear the program on the TV I’m watching.
The new Quick Tune is a game changer too. When I run on the treadmill, there are multiple TVs in front of me and I want to switch TVs I’m listening to when they go to commercials. Instead of having to get of the treadmill and scan the new TV I want to hear, I just scan all three TVs before I start running and am able to switch back and forth in the Quick Tune menu. I usually don’t write reviews for apps but I felt obligated to for Tunity because of how much I use it.
