This has been one crazy summer.
We started it off by moving to a new state, which left me with boxes to unpack, furniture to purchase, and a whole lot of chaos to unravel. My husband opened a new store with his company, which meant lots of travel, long hours, and interviews to make that happen. Top that off with our first year of homeschool and about a gazillion curriculum options to wade through. Oh– and there has only been five days that it didn’t rain since we moved. Think I’m exaggerating? Check the weather and you’ll see.
Needless to say, I am pretty thankful for Comcast Xfinity. With a plethora of children’s programs that are available for multiple screens and devices, Raileigh has stayed dry, safe, and occupied while we got settled into our new home. This isn’t just blah programming, either. You’ll find well-loved favorites such as Disney, Dreamworks, PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, and more. This means we can enjoy Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, My Little Pony, Sofia the First and more whenever we want.
You read that, right? Whenever we want. The Xfinity TV Player app allows us to download this awesome content directly to our mobile devices so that we can watch it at home, in the car, or wherever else we might happen to be. Plus, since the shows are actually downloaded, you don’t even have to be connected to enjoy it!
This is quite awesome because we’ve struggled with spotty internet ever since we moved. We live down in a hole, right along a big lake. There aren’t any signal towers close by, meaning that our internet quite frankly stinks sometimes. Being able to download Raileigh’s favorite shows for those inevitable internet outages has saved me on more than one occasion.
Not to mention, we can take her favorite shows with us when we travel back and forth to see our family. I have a hot spot, but using it in the car completely drains my phone battery and eats away at my media plan. By downloading the shows she enjoys using the Xfinity TV Player app, we are good to go– always.
Speaking of shows– it’s so easy to find appropriate programming for Raileigh. Common Sense Media integrated with Xfinity TV to help you make informed choices about the entertainment for your family through a media ratings system based on child development guidelines. I love this because let’s be honest– television shows aimed at kids have changed a lot since I was a child. I tend to have no idea if a show is appropriate for my four year old or not. Though I don’t rely solely on the ratings system, it does help to steer us in the right direction.
I have to admit that I am quite glad summer is winding down. School has started, almost every box is unpacked, and Darren’s new store opened two weeks ago. I finally feel like I can breathe. Even though life has slowed down and we’ve finally gotten onto some sort of a schedule, I know we’ll still utilize all that Comcast Xfinity has to offer, especially in the way of children’s programming. The vast selection and ease of use makes it an easy choice for us.
