About Blindy.TV

Blindy.TV is a charitable project created by blind people that believe that the blind should be able to enjoy the same television programming that entertains and contributes to the shared culture of their sighted family and friends. We contribute freely of our time and resources to provide a free described television programming service to those that are served by neither commercial products nor government programs. The current service provides a few channels of audio-only television programming, in several genres, all with audio description.

Content Advisory

CAUTION! Blindy.TV contains a wide range of content, and much of it is intended for a mature audience. Some programs, particularly on the Comedy and Drama channels, contain coarse language, descriptions of violence, and occasional descriptions of sexual activities. Please exercise your own judgment when determining if the programming on a particular channel is suitable for you.

All commercials, public service announcements, and news breaks heard on Blindy TV are fictional, and are for entertainment purposes only.

Listening to Blindy.TV

If you experience problems when attempting to listen to Blindy.TV, please visit our Help area.

Blindy.TV is your accessible couch potato experience. Flip through 5 completely described channels, featuring dozens of shows and thousands of episodes. New programs begin at 0 and 30 minutes after the hour. Please investigate the individual channel pages for schedules.

The easiest way to listen to Blindy.TV is through this web site, using the Blindy.TV Web Player.

However, many people prefer to listen with their own software or stand-alone media player. If your media player supports multiple stream playlists (Winamp, Windows Media Player, Foobar2000, iTunes), then you can load the Blindy.TV Playlist. Once you're connected, you can change channels by using your media player's Next and Previous controls, in a similar way that you would flip through channels with a TV remote. For even more channels of audio TV, try our Audio TV Playlist.

If your media player doesn't support multiple stream playlists, then you can still bookmark our individual streams. Use the Listen links in the "Now Playing" table found at the top of each page, or refer to the URL List.

We're Back

We had a major equipment failure on 3/17 that took all of the streams offline. Since it happened at the beginning of a work week, and since the work needed to restore service was extensive, we've been offline for a bit. After an extremely long Saturday, though, all streams are back.

Update: changes to schedules and new content

Greetings, Blindy.TV listeners! It has been several months since the last content update. We have been busy with Summer plans and programming the next version of Blindy.TV, but have taken time out to bring you new content. This update is focused strongly on improving Brain by stuffing it full of new material, although we have goodies for the other channels, as well.

Described TV Teleseminar

On Wednesday evening, July 24, at 7:00 p.m., Eastern, you are invited to participate in a free teleseminar sponsored by the American Foundation for the Blind concerning the current and future delivery of described television in the United States. This 90-minute conference call will feature two long-time champions of described TV: Kim Charlson President, American Council of the Blind and Paul W. Schroeder Vice President, Programs and Policy, American Foundation for the Blind. They will share their expertise with you and invite you to join in an interactive conversation with them to help all of us better understand how to fully enjoy described TV, to trouble-shoot problems, and to make our voices heard as we advocate for more described programming on TV and online.

New Blindy.TV app for Windows

There are lots of ways to listen to our channels, but this app adds some unique features. Some highlights include: get notified when your favorite show is starting on a Blindy.TV channel, get notified when new shows are starting on any channel, and quickly view what is playing on all channels without going to the web site.

This app is for Windows only, and has been independently developed by Brian Enochs. For additional information, and to download the latest version, go here.
