It is amazing how much information and entertainment comes to us via TV. There are a number of options for TV here in the Philippines. You can watch local TV channels. You can download shows via BitTorrent, which is very popular here. You can buy DVD movies to watch on your DVD player. There are so many possibilities.
About a year or so ago, maybe 14 months, I found out about some Android boxes on which you could watch Tv stations from all over the world. I got kind of enthralled by the idea, and I just had to get one of the boxes and try it out. I liked it so much that I kept upgrading my box, and then even building them myself.
As I said, I started off with an Android box, next I went to using a Raspberry Pi mini computer with the OpenElec operating system. Recently I upgraded my Raspberry Pi to LibreElec. I am really enjoying it. It is really a state of the art system for watching entertainment and information from all around the world.
Well, for me, since I am American, I mostly watch US channels and events. Things like live US sports, News and entertainment. It is all very easy to watch while it is airing in the United States.
You need a good internet connection to be able to stream these things live, but I am lucky in that I do have good Internet, so that is not a problem. But, if your internet is not as good as needed, you can still get and watch this stuff, but instead of live streaming, you will need to use a slightly different procedure and download the program before watching. Having my box for this has really changed my life and added some enjoyment. I don’t think I ever watch the local TV channels anymore, except occasionally the local news if there is something big going on here.
Movies? Sports? TV shows? Live TV stations of things like news? It is all available.
I went to college at LSU (Louisiana State University) and last year was a great year (although not necessarily for the Tigers). For the first time since living in the Philippines, I was able to watch every single LSU football game live! It really made my Sunday mornings (games played on Saturday night in the USA, which is Sunday morning here) a lot of fun. Several times, I even had a friend of mine who is also an LSU alum come over to watch the game with me. We had a great time! I also watched a number of NFL games including the Super Bowl live! Right now, MLB baseball is underway, and I watch baseball live from time to time too.
