We are going to explain to you what is and how to use Tivify, the platform with which you can watch a total of 80 television channels online or on smart devices. Until now it was a paid service, but now it has launched a free version that stands out for offering live content from these channels without ads or payments.
The channel list is perhaps a bit generic, since it mainly has DTT channels, as well as regional ones from various provinces, and some thematic and international channels. In any case, it is a good alternative for those channels that you may not be able to tune into on your television, with additional options such as recording the programs.
What is Tivify
Tivify is a platform to watch TV channels online, with a concept quite similar to Pluto TV. It is used to watch DTT channels live, but it also has another series of different channels, some thematic as well as other sports, and also a series of regional and international channels.
Until now, Tivify had always been a premium service that required a monthly payment of about five euros per month. However, you have now created a free subscription, so that you will be able to watch up to 80 TV channels completely free, and all you have to do is register for the service.
The most striking feature of this new subscription is that Tifify you have no ads or lower resolution in your free plan, unlike other services that to be able to see them without cost they do put ads.
The main differences of this free plan with the plus of five euros, is that channels classified as premium cannot be accessed, the hours of recording that you can make, the channels that can be recorded and the days that the recordings remain accessible are restricted. Also, instead of five paired devices, you can only have three, and you can only be viewing content on one of them.
Come on, in essence what the free version has is that there are fewer possibilities when it comes to recording the content, and that you can’t be using it on more than one device at the same time with the same account. But for the rest, nobody can take away the 80 free channels from you, and neither can you watch them on the device you want.
If you want the figures, the free version offers you the possibility of making up to 60 hours of recordings, although only on regional and RTVE channels. In addition, you will have the recordings available for 30 days, and you will have access to part of the broadcasts of the last 7 days in regional and RTVE.
You can watch Tivify on practically any device. It has a web version that you can access on the Tivify.tv page, and also versions for Android on Google Play and for iOS on the App Store, so you can see them natively on your mobile or tablet, with a feature to cast them to the Chromecast. It also has an application for Fire TV, and a native application for Samsung Smart TVs, Android TVs, and soon on LG TVs.
Using it is very easy
The only thing you will need to be able to see Tivify for free is sign up with the free account. For that, you can go to the web and go to the section of Planes to be able to find the button Sign up for free, although you also have it always visible on the web. This will take you to the www.tivify.es/es/registro section.
To register with the free plan you will not need to write your card, you will simply have to give your name, surname and an email address to create the account, which you have to include a password. Then in the process you have to choose the free account and voila. You will receive an email confirming the registration and that’s it.
