Paula Light says, “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.
Now the truth is that I’m not really a romantic guy, so I might be hard pressed to come up with 28 objects of love, but I think I should be able to come up with 28 things I like a lot.
You may remember that, for another one of Paula’s regular prompts, The Monday Peeve, I posted a rant about how my high-def smart TV wasn’t so smart and how, in order to watch some streaming channels other than the big three — Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, which I can access via my cable provider — I had to purchase a third party streaming stick.
Well, my Roku Streaming Stick+ arrived on Tuesday and after about 15 minutes after plugging it in and following the easy, on-screen prompts to set it up, I was able to view the AppleTV+ and Discovery+ streaming networks. It was love at first sight (literally).I still resent that I had to buy this device in the first place, and that now I have FOUR remote control devices to contend with — TV remote, cable remote, AV surround sound remote, and now Roku remote. And I also resent that HGTV and other commercial networks are moving some programs that were previously available on basic cable over to paid subscription streaming services. They’re all a bunch of greedy bastards.
That said, I’m happy that a $50 solution resolved my streaming service dilemma.
