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!

No content was affected by the equipment failure, but we were not able to recover all of the schedule information. The result is that, as of today, all series have restarted from their pilots. On the bright side, if you missed the beginning of series when we first started the schedules, here is your chance to catch shows from the beginning. As a reminder, only Comedy, Drama, and Scifi currently have schedules, and you can view those schedules on their respective pages.

As part of repairing the schedules, the ETC channel has been remixed for greater variety. In particular, you’ll now notice occasional blocks of half hour shows from Comedy and Brain on ETC.

Welcome back, and happy listening!

Blindy.TV Offline

Sadly, due to a significant equipment failure today, and the inconvenient timing of the failure, Blindy.TV will be offline for an extended period.

Update: New Schedules and Content

After several delays, our next big update is now online! Keep reading to learn about the big improvements to the Comedy Channel, new shows on all channels, our efforts to increase streaming quality, and future plans.

We're Back!

After a long delay, we’re back! Due to several cascading errors, what started with the failure of a single hard drive in a RAID array on Sunday night took us right down to our very last emergency backup. Fortunately, that backup was updated last Wednesday, and so we were able to restore everything from it. We already have a backup for our backup, but, in the future, we will be backing up our backup’s backup.

Blindy.TV offline

Blindy.TV is currently down due to a major disk failure. Our content is all stored on a RAID with journaled file systems, but even this was apparently not sufficient to save us from data corruption. Technology always finds a way to ruin your day.
