If you travel frequently with others, you might know the struggle of one needing to go to sleep, and another wanting to stay up and watch a little TV before settling down. You can only turn the TV up just a bit before it becomes a bother to somebody else.Or, say you’re somewhere with a bunch of TVs and want to tune in to just one broadcast. What can you do?In these moments, the Tunity app is the perfect compromise. It lets the person who wants to watch television stream the TV’s audio right to their smartphone (and therefore into headphones), and allows their partner to fall asleep in silence.At the gym, the app can be used to listen to what’s playing on TVs on the walls, without exclusively needing to be on a treadmill or standing bike.If you’re at a noisy bar, Tunity can be used to actually hear the TV playing in the background, if you want to catch commentary on a game, or hear a breaking news report. In an airport, a TV can entertain you while you wait at your gate.Much like LocalCast, Tunity also lets you hear any muted TV in your home, or lets you mute it so you can listen and others don’t have to while the video keeps playing. It’s a specific app, but as you can see from the above examples, it has quite a number of uses in everyday life.Below, we explain more about how Tunity works, and how you can use it on your phone—and why you might want to. We also get into a few drawbacks, but overall, Tunity is a great app for listening to the many muted TVs in the world.
