Directcom is pleased to announce the launch of a fantastic new online feature available to all Directcom Cable TV customers in Idaho: WatchTVeverywhere. Watch TV Everywhere allows you to view your favorite channels online on any device from anywhere you have internet access at anytime. If you are away from home and don’t want to miss your favorite show, as long as you have internet access, you can log in and use your smart phone, laptop or tablet as your TV. Plus, you can use the online library to access your favorite content, like past episodes, online anytime, so prime time is whenever you want it to be. This is a wonderfully convenient way to watch TV.
WatchTVeverywhere is really about freedom. No longer do you have to be tied to your couch or living room to watch your favorite shows. Watch anywhere, anytime.
While Directcom pays for each customer to have access to WatchTVeverywhere, we are giving this service away to you for FREE, as a value-added feature to your regular cable TV service, to thank you for being a loyal cable TV customer, so we hope each customer will use it and enjoy the great benefits of this online video entertainment portal.
Sports fans will be especially excited to know that as a Directcom Cable customer, you will have full access too all subscribed networks on the WatchESPN app thanks to our partnership with WatchTVEverywhere. In the past, Directcom internet customers were only able to access content shown on the ESPN3 network. Now, if you are also a cable TV customer, you will be able to log in to the WatchESPN app under Direct Communications Cable, and access all games shown on ESPN and ESPN2, online, and while you are away from home. This is another great reason to choose your local cable company – note that DirecTV does NOT offer any online access to ESPN to it’s customers.
Even if you are at home, use WatchTVeverywhere as an extra TV screen, or as your personal entertainment library. It’s kind of like having a free Netflix subscription, but even better, because WatchTVeverywhere has current, live shows.
This launch is an ongoing process–new channels are being added to our WatchTVEverywhere portal everyday. To use WatchTVEverywhere, you must first complete a one-time registration. To get started, visit http://www.watchtveverywhere.com, select “Direct Communications” your cable service provider from the drop-down menu, and click “submit.” Make sure you have your last invoice handy – you’ll need your account number, and the correct spelling of the last name on the account. Click “Register” to start the registration process. After you have registered, click “Log In,” and enter your username and password. Click on the TV Network you want to watch, and you’ll see a list of available programs.

How is WTVE different from Hulu, Netflix, or other streaming services?
supportTVE-ncontent>It’s FREE. There’s no extra charge to use it.
It includes live TV. Hulu and Netflix only offer previously recorded shows.
It has full episodes of current shows. For instance, episodes of The Closer and Leverage on TNT are available within days of their premier.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! At this time, there’s no extract cost for WatchTVEverywhere, so feel free to explore. There is nothing on the site that will result in an extra cost to you (except overage charges from your cellular carrier, if applicable). As long as you can receive the TV Network in your “regular” cable channel lineup, you may view that network’s TV Everywhere content, if available.
Where can I WatchTVEverywhere?
WTVE works anywhere you can receive an Internet signal: in your house, at work, at the mall, at a hotel, the airport, a vacation home- anywhere! Wired connections and in-home WiFi will provide the best overall quality. The quality of WatchTVEverywhere service while traveling (airports, stores, etc) will vary with the signal strength and bandwidth of the Internet connection you use. Be extra careful when traveling, especially outside the U.S. Data roaming charges may apply, and they can be very expensive.
What shows can I watch?
Each TV network makes their own decision about what to offer on WatchTVEverywhere. For example, the live feed of CNN is available, but the live feed of TBS is not. Instead, TBS offers full episodes of their popular programs.
Why aren’t all programs available?
A TV network doesn’t necessarily own all the rights to all the programs they transmit. A network may have the right to transmit a movie, but only to TV sets, and not on WatchTVEverywhere. It all depends on the network.
Will other networks become available?
Yes! We’re working with many different programming providers to expand the number of networks, and the number of shows available on WatchTVEverywhere. Registered users are presented with the complete list of all the networks available to them. When new networks are added, you will see them in your menu of available programs when you log in.
