Watch TV Everywhere FAQ's

What is Watch TVEverywhere?

Watch TV Everywhere has a lot of different definitions; for us it is TV programs that are available on something other than a TV set. This means your PC, laptop, iPad, iPhone or Android.


How is Watch TVEverywhere different from something like Hulu or Netflix?

There are several differences. Watch TVEverywhere:

  • It is FREE. There is no extra charge to use it. You only need to have a subscription from Genuine Telecom to the network you want to watch. For example to watch DIY you will need to pay for a package that includes DIY.

  • Includes live TV. For example, Watch TVEverywhere included more than 2,000 hours of live 2012 Olympics coverage. Hulu and Netflix only provide previously recorded shows.

  • Has full episodes of current TV shows. For example, the episodes of The Closer or Leverage on TNT are available within days of their premiere on TNT.


How much does it cost?

Nothing. At this time, there is no extra cost for Watch TVEverywhere so feel free to explore. There is nothing available at this site that will result in an extra cost to you (except overage charges from your cellular carrier). You only need to be a subscriber to the TV network from Genuine Telecom. This may change over time depending on the requirements made by the individual TV networks.


Where can I Watch TVEverywhere?

The answer is just about everywhere. Watch TVEverywhere works anywhere you can receive an Internet signal; inside your home, at the office, shopping mall, hotel, airport, vacation home, etc. Wired connections and in-home WiFi will provide the best quality. The quality of Watch TVEverywhere signals while roaming (airports, stores, etc.) will vary depending on the strength of the signal. Be extra careful when you travel, especially outside of the US, data roaming charges may apply and they can be very expensive.


Why aren’t all programs available?

Different networks make different programs available at different times. Each TV network makes their own decision about what to make available on Watch TVEverywhere. For example, the live feed of CNN is available however the live feed of TBS is not. Instead, TBS offers full episodes of their popular programs.


Will other networks become available?
