KirkEisenbeis Posted March 27, 2016 Share Posted March 27, 2016 I had a wonderful discovery at the sports bar today, there is an app called Tunity that allows my phone to stream the audio of a muted TV in real-time. Being the lone college hockey fan in the bar while watching a muted TV just got a lot better. The app has you point the phone camera at the TV (I guess to verify that you really have access to <channel>), and then the app streams the sound to you. The app also gives you the ability to tweak the audio timing to arrive earlier or later, so you can sync it with your TV broadcast. They advertise that the audio-only stream is just ~20 kbps, which would take almost 8 days straight to accumulate 1 GB of data (my attempt at the math figures 5 days, but okay). (I had earlier been trying to be clever by picking up a streamed radio broadcast from the UND sports network, but all of the ones I could find lag the Dish broadcast by 15-60 seconds.) 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
