One of my addictions is tv. I love movies, I love tv shows. It would be easier for me to tell you what I don’t like instead of what I do like, because I like most everything! I grew up watching shows like Charlies Angels, Little house on the Prairie and Threes Company. We had 3 or 4 channels on our television and I was over the moon happy when this new channel became available. It was channel 64 and we were lucky to get fuz when we watched it with our rabbit ears.
I was probably 14 when I learned of VHS players. We rented one on special occasions and would binge watch the movies we rented. Of course our cousins was the first to own their own machine and eventually we were able to get one ourselves. I remember standing daily for hours at a time picking out the perfect movies to bring home and watch.
It was several years before DVD players came out and it seems like each year they are getting more advance.
Fast forward to today and the girl that was amazed at VHS would feel in a dream world surrounded by dvds, blue ray players, cable tv with premium channels and the ability to stream channels such as hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Streaming is something I am fairly new at. John and I bought a WII just so we could get Netflix. While in Panama we purchased a Blue Ray Player that could stream Netflix, YouTube etc.
After coming back from Panama we ventured a bit further out and got something called a Roku.
Now I see so many other streaming devices. Devices I am not sure about. My niece uses something called Google Chromecast. There is one item that I am considering investing in that has to be great. Why does it have to be great? Because it is Apple. It is the Apple® – Apple TV® – Black and right now one of my favorite stores, Best Buy, has it on sale for $69.99 and free shipping.
This would not only be something I would enjoy, but would be a great idea to get my husband, brother or stepdad for fathers day next month!
It looks really easy to hook up, and that is important to me! HD compatible, high resolution, can stream tons of things (as long as you already have WIFI and is just neat looking. It would fit in any décor.
What do you use for your streaming?
