I am impressed and happy.

I have been a TDS customer for over 11-years and these days we have a rather extensive TDS presence in the house with: 1 Gig Internet, TDS TV and the latest TDS MESH Wi-Fi.

Yes, I have a fairly HEFTY TDS bill. SMILE.

TDS and I have had our moments. But, they impress me quite often. This is another instance.

I am proud of them and GLAD to be a TDS customer.

Good for YOU, TDS.

Keep it up.

I will NOT call up and complain about my bill for the next two-months. SMILE.

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.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

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.
