The lovely and talented Barbara chose the JusJoJan word for today, television.
Television, which I’ll abbreviate as TV because it’s easier to type, is one of my favorite subjects here on The Sound of One Hand Typing. Do a search on either TV or television and you’re bound to find a whole lot of blog entries on the subject.
The world of TV is changing. Now, in addition to getting your fix using a cable, a dish, or a good ol’ antenna, there’s a plethora of TV content that’s available via the Internet and devices like the Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV. There’s the 800-pound gorilla in the room, Netflix, as well as Hulu, Sling, YouTube TV, Britbox, Acorn, and all sorts of paid services, as well as a ton of free content available via Pluto, Stirr, and an ever-growing number of content providers. There’s so much, in fact, that you can slowly and steadily go crazy trying to keep up with it.
I follow a website called Cord Cutters News that announces all the changes that are coming to the streaming world and any major announcemnts of new services. It’s pretty good as far as it goes, but after a while you can’t tell the players without a scorecard.
Maybe it’s best if I just stick with the over-the-air (OTA) offerings. There’s plenty there, some of which is actually worth watching.
This is another Just Jot It January entry, which, as we all by now, is brought to us by Linda Hill and this station. And now a word from RCA Victor televisions with the Wireless Wizard remote control.
