Tunity is a free smartphone app available for iOS and Android. It allows you to hear any muted but live television audio directly on your mobile device. All you have to do is scan the television screen and let Tunity locate the channel to stream the audio through your headphones or Bluetooth speaker. You can use it anywhere, from sports bars to gyms to waiting areas at airports and hospitals.
