What is watchTVeverywhere?

watchTVeverywhere has a lot of different definitions. For us, it is TV programs that are available on something other than a TV set. That means your PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone or gaming device.

How is watchTVeverywhere different from something like Hulu or Netflix?

There are several differences. watchTVeverywhere:

  • Is FREE. There is no extra charge to use it. You only need to have a subscription to the network you want to watch.
  • Includes live TV. You can view live feeds of 25+ networks on watchTVeverywhere. Also, many big sporting events, like the Olympics, show live footage of events not broadcast on TV. Hulu and Netflix only provide previously recorded shows.
  • Has full episodes of current TV shows. Episodes are often available within a few days of premiering on TV.

How much does watchTVeverywhere cost?

Nothing. At this time, there is no extra cost for watchTVeverywhere 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.

Where can I watchTVeverywhere?

The answer is just about EVERYWHERE. watchTVeverywhere works anywhere you can receive an Internet signal: inside your house, at the office, shopping mall, hotel, airport, vacation home, etc. Wired connections and in-home WiFi will provide the best quality.

Available content is at the discretion of the network. MCTV has no input into the content available.

Why aren't all programs available on watchTVeverywhere?

A TV network doesn't necessarily own all of the rights to all of the programs they transmit. A TV network may have the right to transmit a movie, but only to TV sets, not on watchTVeverywhere. So, once again, it depends on the TV network.
