TV Sync

HotMic helps people have watch parties around a TV event. This includes:

  • Live sports
  • TV Shows
  • Movies

Typically when you have one of these events, you would be out of sync with the host due to timing differences in the broadcast.

HotMic's TV sync listens to the audio signature of the host video and the individual player audio to sync the timing of the host video with each individual player video. For a better experience, we recommend not watching events in complete real time and delaying by 10 or more seconds to ensure you can properly sync with the host/creator.
