Today is the first day of the NFL season, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re looking forward to cheering on our favorite team (Go Broncos!) at some local sports bars (like Hogfish Seafood & Smokehouse in Loveland, CO!), and know many other fans are gearing up to do the same.
While things aren’t quite back to normal in most areas, we’re hearing from our hospitality customers across the United States and Canada that things are picking back up, and they expect packed houses during game days. If you’re a football fan that plans to hit up your local pub to catch the game, you might have some questions about how you can tune in to your team and have a better experience overall.
We’ve gathered answers to some of the most common questions we get about sports bar sound systems and using the AudioFetch app to hear muted TVs:
How do I listen to TV at a bar?
Bars that use AudioFetch allow you to listen to TVs through your personal smartphone or tablet. You download the free AudioFetch app, connect to the local WiFi, choose which TV you want to hear and start listening immediately. You can switch the channel to hear the game or program playing on another TV at any time.
Can I hear my TV through my phone?
AudioFetch allows you to hear TV through your phone using the free AudioFetch app. When used as a bar audio solution, AudioFetch can accommodate 16 audio inputs with a single unit, or up to 512 by using additional units. That means you choose to listen to one of 512 TVs with the swipe of a thumb (how many TVs does your local sports bar have?!).
How do I listen to a muted TV?
AudioFetch technology allows you to listen to muted TVs using only your smartphone and headphones. It doesn’t matter where you are in relation to the TV–right next to it, on the patio, even in the bathroom–as long as you’re connected to the local wireless network, you can listen via the free AudioFetch app.
How can I hear TV without disturbing others?
AudioFetch wireless audio streaming allows you to listen to the TV at any volume through headphones connected to your phone.
This means someone at a sports bar can hear commentary on the Lumberjack World Championships playing on a single TV tucked in the corner, while the rest of the bar watches football! It also works great in fitness centers, waiting rooms, airports and even your home–allowing anyone to hear TV without distracting others or getting distracted themselves.
Does AudioFetch work with streaming services?
Yes! AudioFetch allows listeners to hear any program that’s playing on any TV. Unlike Tunity, which only allows you to pick up audio from media broadcasts, AudioFetch can be used with Netflix, Hulu, AppleTV, Amazon Prime Video, or any other streaming service.
If you’re looking for a local spot to catch the game with AudioFetch, check out a map of our customers and look for the knife and spoon icon.
If your favorite spot doesn’t offer AudioFetch, let us know. We’ll reach out and see if we can work with them to bring AudioFetch to you.
