Background Apps

I began to notice a slowdown in response time on my Amazon Fire devices (Fire TV, Firestick and Amazon tablet). My first remedy was to check the Internet connection. Sometimes that solves the problem, but not always. What I later found was there were a bunch of unused apps running in the background. All of [...]

Tech Rabbit Hole

Well, apparently I lied! My last words on my most recent post were something to the effect of not purchasing another TV. Well, guess what I did? Yep, I purchased an Amazon Fire TV. Here’s the Scoop If you read my last post, you’d know that my hubby purchased a large screen TV. With that [...]

Roku TV

Let me start this by saying I prefer the Amazon Fire Stick over the Roku streaming device. I also prefer the Amazon fire stick over the 55” Roku Smart TV my hubby bought for himself for his birthday. Don’t get me wrong, the TCL Roku TV is an impressive piece of technology, although too large [...]

Hulu

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I signed up with Hulu as my PlayStation Vue replacement. With all of the streaming TV services out there, my two finalists were YouTube TV and Hulu. As you can see, Hulu won. The inability to watch YouTube TV on my Amazon Fire tablet coupled with the need to [...]

RIP PlayStation Vue

Yesterday I found out that PlayStation Vue will discontinue its streaming TV services effect 1/30/2020. No, I didn’t learn this from PlayStation Vue, I learned it from my brother who doesn’t even use PlayStation Vue. Who knows, maybe PlayStation Vue will share the news with those of us who don’t follow their blog on the [...]

PlayStation Vue vs YouTube TV

In an attempt to further reduce my cable bill (my cable cord wasn’t thoroughly cut), I’ve been toying with switching from PlayStation Vue to YouTube TV. Some time ago I wrote about cutting the cord using PlayStation Vue. Unfortunately, if you have a sports fan in your house, cutting the cord isn’t so simple. It’s [...]

Blokada

I want to begin this post by saying thank you to Rita M. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have investigated the Blokada app. What is Blokada? Blokada is a free open source ad blocking app that works on Android devices, including the Amazon Fire Stik (unfortunately, it does not work on iOS). It [...]

No More Terrarium TV

Terrarium TV, you have changed my life! It was about 18 short months ago when I first became aware of the movie streaming world. Back then I purchased and “jailbroke” my first Amazon Fire TV stick. Oh, what a newb I was. It’s been a long time since this grandma was a newbie at anything [...]

Terrarium isn’t dead. It’s just going by a different name. The new name is Movie Box Red. The app’s name and icon may be different, but that’s where the differences end. It operates the exact same way as the old Terrarium operated. If you’re a die-hard Terrarium fan, you’ll be very happy with Movie Box [...]

Terrarium Icon

Last week was a roller coaster of a week for me. First, my grandson teaches me something new on Terrarium TV, then Terrarium goes away and then Terrarium is back again for a few months. Wait, before I go into Terrarium TV and downloading movies, let me give a quick explanation as to why I haven’t [...]
