Good News For BUSY Rugby Fans, 17-Minute Highlights Of 2019 World Cup Matches, In HD, Available On YouTube (FREE).

by Anura Guruge


Just a very partial listing from YouTube.com.



Given that NBC holds the U.S. broadcast right for the 2019 World Cup I did not expect to see much on YouTube.

I was pleasantly surprised. NBC, for a change, is being NICE. Yes, they are but 17-minute HIGHLIGHTs but it is in HD and appears to capture what is needed. Yes, it does leave you feeling a bit lost and empty at times, but it is better than nothing.

To be honest, I am quite cool with this. I do NOT have time to watch a full 90-100 minute game — not with my writing and also watching cricket! So, this suits I.

Yesterday, I watched two matches, back-to-back: New Zealand v South Africa & Fiji v Australia. They were both beyond excellent. Must watch. Honest. Some of the running. Will leave you breathless.

‘TDS TV’ FREE HBO Preview — DVR Recording Made Remain After The Preview.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This was my first ‘TDS TV‘ free PREVIEW and I wasn’t sure what to expect.

For a start, I wasn’t sure whether any HBO or CINEMAX recordings I made will remain when the preview ended (which was today).

So far, so good but I will feel more confident tomorrow.

I think it was when I had DISH. DVR recordings only worked provided you still had the channel. So, any recordings you made disappeared when the preview ended. They tried to get you to sign-up for that channel.

As far as I can the TDS TV preview ended today. The HBO and Cinemax channels no longer appear on the Guide.

But, the FEW recordings I made are still there — and they play.

So, hope this helps.

FREE HBO & Cinemax Preview On ‘TDS TV’ August 16 — 20, 2019.

by Anura Guruge


 


I wondered whether ‘TDS TV‘, like DISH and DirectTV, did such FREE preview weekends. And then I got an e-mail a few days ago.

I have had ‘TDS TV’, with considerable success and satisfaction, for one-week short of a year. This was the FIRST preview that I was aware of.

Starts tomorrow. HBO will be in 800 range. We might have to go find it off the Guide. I don’t know. My first time.

I will let you know. If you have ‘TDS TV’ enjoy. There are a few HBO movies I wouldn’t mind seeing. Not sure whether DVRing will work — after the Preview window ends.

‘Atoll’, To Their Credit, Honors “Father’s Day” Special, Though I Bought Inflatable Paddle Board Through Amazon.

On their Website: atollboards.com.


I saw the “Father’s Day” special offer on their Website. There was no mention whether I would get it if I ordered the board through Amazon.

I really wanted to order it from Amazon. I get 6-month, interest free financing and it is crazy not to avail oneself of that generous offer. So, I contacted Atoll.

To their credit they immediately told me that they will ship me the 8″ Flex Fin, free of any charges (including shipping), as soon as I provide them with my Amazon order number. I was impressed. It confirmed my belief that they were a CLASS ACT. Glad I went with them rather than iRocker.

I sent them the Amazon order number and WITHIN MINUTES they sent me an USPS tracking number for my fin! WOW. Was I delighted.

So, now you know. You still have time left.

Click to access original from ‘betanews.com’.


Wow. It is true. I happened to see this ‘post’, on my Google News feed earlier today. When I was next in front of the TV I tried it out. Yes, they are free. STRANGE. Couldn’t find a Christmas theme. Closest was a ‘White Winter’. So, have that now. See below. Enjoy.

Free, Sunscreen Dispensers At “Boston Public Garden”.

Attribution WILL be enforced.



Saw these on Sunday, August 26, 2018, when we strolled through the two parks — i.e., Boston Common & the Public Garden — after doing Dim Sum, at the China Pearl, ‘just around the corner‘.

I do NOT use sunscreen, but I know how important it is to others. This is great, especially for the kids. Not sure what the deal is. Appears that it is sponsored by a ‘foundation’. Not sure whether we will see these in Central New Hampshire, but it is a great idea and needs to be applauded.

Bravo & Kudos.

‘Free’ Garmin T-Shirt From ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA’ With My Garmin Fenix 5.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Click image to access the ‘HRMUSA’ Website to get a T-shirt.


They are FREE, one per customer, but you have to pay $3.99 shipping — from “Heart Rate Monitors USA“.

But they sent me one FREE-FREE when I order my Garmin Fenix 5 from them. We have had a lot of dealings since November so they know me well.

The T-shirt came today, USPS, whereas the Fenix 5 was delivered by UPS on Friday.

Nice quality T-shirt.

You should get one even if you have to pay the $3.99 shipping.
