FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

99 Cent Movies Through TIVO

For those of you who have been doing this for years, read no further. For the rest of the world this was my first experience using Amazon movies through my TIVO. I have an non-HD TIVO. I will have it until it dies and then I will consider a replacement. Due to the non-HD aspect of my TIVO I have been less than thrilled with the playback of many of the things I have TIVOed. However being genetically predisposed to use things until they drop, I have been unable to replace my TIVO. So on this past Christmas holiday when my choices of viewing were limited to reruns both OnDemand and live or animated chipmunks, I tried the movie feature through my TIVO.

I discovered that the viewing quality was excellent. Downloaded movies, for whatever reason, are much better viewing quality that what I TIVO. An additional discovery was that I could watch a movie for $0.99. That is $2.00 cheaper than anything on my Comcast OnDemand menu. In addition, I wanted to watch the first Sherlock Holmes movie to decide whether to go to the theater to see the new one. Sherlock Holmes was not to be found on Comcast.

A minor caveat, you will want to set up the Amazon synch prior to watching your movie as they caution it may take up to 30 minutes to download a movie.

To wrap it up, I saw a movie I wanted to see in my time frame, I didn’t have to leave the comfort of my humble abode to battle unruly holiday mobs and it cost me $0.99.
