FAQs

What channels are available on BEEtv?

BEEHIVE BEEtv offers up to 176 channels for your viewing pleasure. Review our channel lineup for all our offerings.

Do I need an Apple TV set-top box for each TV?

An Apple TV set-top box is no longer required as other devices are now compatible with the BEEHIVE BEEtv app. However, an Apple TV set-box may still be used for you to access your BEEHIVE BEEtv app. You will need a compatible device for each TV you plan to use BEEHIVE BEEtv with.

Can I get an Apple TV set-top box from Beehive Broadband?

With our updated BEEHIVE BEEtv app, you no longer have to use an Apple TV set-top box to access BEEtv, as a result, Beehive Broadband no longer rents the device. If you would like an Apple TV set-top box you can purchase one at many major retailers. Beehive Broadband does keep a small number of traditional STB devices for sale. Now, you have the flexibility of choosing which compatible device you want to use. For more information about compatible devices check the Compatible Devices section above.

Can I set up Parental Controls?

Yes, you can. Parental controls follow similar restrictions set up on your TV and streaming devices. You can update these controls in your device’s settings. Each device is a little different, but you can set up your pin in settings usually under a parental control tab. You will need a pin to access anything with the parental guidance rating of TV-MA, R, NC-17 or NR no matter what settings you have specified. When parental controls are enabled they take effect on all devices associated with your account.

How do I add premium channels or change my programming package?

Please contact us at our main office during regular business hours Monday-Friday by calling 800-615-8021 or emailing us at [email protected] to make any updates to your programming package or account.

Can I set up recordings when I am not home?

You can use any supported device with the BEEHIVE BEEtv app to schedule recordings.

What things should I look for if my TV is not working the way it should?

There are a couple of steps you can take to troubleshoot what is happening. First, try force closing the app and then reopening it. Different devices have different ways of doing this. Please refer to the vendor documentation for the device you are using to learn how to force close apps if you are unsure how to do so.

Next, you can try troubleshooting your device by unplugging it from power for 30 seconds and then plug it back in.

If you continue to experience technical issues, please contact our customer support team at 800-615-8021. They will ask you some quick questions, such as:

  • What are you seeing on the screen?
  • Are other installed apps (Netflix, Hulu, iTunes) working properly?
  • Are all of your Smart TVs in the house working as expected?
  • Did anything change in the streaming device’s environment (cables moved, TV moved, new router)?

Please be near the TV or streaming device ready to troubleshoot with the technician when you call.

Do I have to have Beehive Broadband Internet to get BEEHIVE BEEtv?

Yes, to be eligible for BEEHIVE BEEtv you need to have a fiber-optic internet plan through Beehive Broadband.

How many DVR hours are available?

What is Watch TV Everywhere (wTVE)?

How do I set up my profile and parental controls once I am in the new BEEHIVE BEEtv app?

Click the Profile icon to navigate to the screen where you can view your DVR recordings. Select the gear icon in the upper right corner.
