Do you ever find yourself battling the kiddos for the TV? If you’re a Bright House cable customer, I have great news for you – the Bright House TV app. The free BHTV app allows you to turn your computer, iPad, iPhone and most Android phones within Wi-Fi range into a TV anywhere in your house. Make Any Room a TV Room! (Currently, the app only allows you to watch live TV while on your home wireless network, but hopefully you’ll be able to use it outside of the house one day.)
The app allows to you watch more than 250 of your Bright House channels already including Disney, Disney Jr, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. and Cartoon Network, with more channels being added each month. (Oh and my husband’s favorite, ESPN.) Parents will also be happy to know the app has parental controls so you can restrict what channels your kids are able to watch.
My husband has been using the app for a few months now, and he gets a lot of use out of the app especially at the end of the day when our girls wind down with one of their favorite shows before bed. He can sit with the girls as they watch their show, while still keeping an eye on the game on his iPad. It’s the perfect “win win” for both of them.
One of the other great features of the BHTV app is the remote DVR scheduling. You can use the app to schedule recordings to your Bright House DVR app even while out of the house, which is great for those moments when you realize you forgot to record the show your daughter has been reminding you to record everyday for the past week. (Guilty!)
For more information, check out the BHTV’s FAQ, then download the app so you can enjoy TV anywhere — even if the kids are hogging the TV.

This is one amazing app! All families would love it so the kids could watch tv on what ever device you can run with it in your home.
David Smith says
Most TV providers either have or are working on apps and devices that allow you to watch live TV, recorded shows, VOD or PPV shows on all kinds of other devices like tablets, smartphones, computers, etc. I have an app on my Samsung tablet that lets me watch TV from my DirecTV system. Thanks for the info. 20 years ago, we would have been completely astounded by what’s available today.

This would be a great thing to own. TV when and where you need it!
Barbara Montag says
This is the perfect solution for the remote control power struggles – thank you.

This sounds like a handy app. The only problem I could see would be my two kids canceling each others show that they had programed. 🙂 I could see us using it all the time when we were out and forgot to set the DVR.
This is a super cool perq to offer your customers! We don’t have Bright House, but if we did I would definitely use the app!
This app would definitely cut down on fighting in our house. And not only among the children. Hmmmmm.

ohhh we need this! lol we fight over the remote ALL the time!!
If we had cable, this would be perfect! We used to, and this would have been brilliant! We haven’t had tv in a while (just netflix). If we start up again we’ll have to test out this app!
