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 [...]

PlayStation Vue Outside Home Network

So far things have been going swimmingly with my recent PlayStation Vue subscription. There are a few hiccups, but with technology that’s to be expected. Having said that, this one hiccup really frosted my liver. It wasn’t the hiccup so much, but the inability to access customer support when I needed it. Outside Home Network [...]

PlayStation Vue

With PlayStation Vue, I can finally cut the cable cord, or at least I’m prepared to cut the cable cord. I first have to find out more information about penalties and such for canceling my services. Cable companies give you a discount if you order all three services, internet, phone and cable. If you remove [...]
