Share your love of television shows at home (Part 1 of 2)
For those of us living the semi-retired life at home (lucky you?) and you love your television shows, here is an idea to consider. You must love TV a lot because this may cost you USD $250 out of your pocket.
A portable TV you watch movies and shows with while you are barbecuing in the yard, or while you are in the exercise room, or cooking in the kitchen. Here’s the new twist on an old idea: If you are in the living room, pressing a button will “flip” that TV movie from the portable instantly onto the large-screen television set sitting in the room. Now grand kids can watch it with you.
There’s tons of quality television shows to watch on the internet: Cooking and exercise shows, NASA TV, and lots more. Yes, these are channels you stream right from the internet, some are free, and others may cost you $1 to $4 to watch online. It is the power of choice – you search and find any genre that interests you. Then watch them when it suits you at a convenient time and place. With the voice remote, you have the option of searching by speaking into the portable gadget.
For football TV fans, do jumping-jacks in your exercise room when your team intercepts a pass; or if the opposing team fumbles, do some push-ups. You get the idea. For dog lovers, here are two samples to whet your TV appetite.
