Abby Doodles TV – Episode 10 – Season One Finale

Well, it’s finally coming to an end. Season one at least. Back in August of 2014 my daughter and I started making a some videos. It was nothing serious and we didn’t spend a lot of time on setup or anything of that nature. I wasn’t even sure how well this would all come together. To be perfectly honest, not much has come out of any of this. We probably spent too long in between each episode to actually build a following.

So here we are, a little over two years later and we are closing out season one. When we first started this show Abby did not know how to read at all and could barely write her own name. Now she’s writing some sentences and can read at her age level so we are ready to start planning for season two. Abby and I discuss her show a lot and we have some good ideas for season two, now we just need to put the plan into action and actually film some episodes. We are hoping to start the next season this summer, so be sure to subscribe and be on the look-out for that. There is talks of a new intro and theme song, but we will have to see about all of that. For now though, enjoy season one for what it is and expect some great new things in season two!

Cutting the Cord with 1ByOne’s HDTV Antenna

IMG_4504I have had cable television for as long as I can remember. I also have had Netflix for a long time and I watch both fairly equally. We are always looking for ways to cut costs in our home and our cable bill would definitely be a good starting point. I didn’t have one of those new fancy digital antennas for my t.v. so if I were to cut my cable I would lose out on all of the local channels. So here comes 1ByOne to the rescue. They sent over a shiny super thin amplified HDTV antenna that has a great 50 mile range. It is super thin and can be easily mounted on the wall if necessary.

IMG_4617After getting my t.v. setup with over the air service a scan had to be done to find all of the channels. I was only anticipating 5 or 6 channels but to my surprise over 30 channels were found. That is really impressive. Along with 30 channels there is also an on screen guide so you can see what’s on all of them and see what is coming up. I’ll admit that most of the channels are a little lame, but there are a few gems available. Notably PBS Kids, both of my kids are fans of Sprout, and while it’s not exactly the same, they do show some of the same content.

The lack of sports programming, specifically Cardinals baseball and Blues hockey will probably help keep the cable boxes around for a little while longer, but I can definitely see using this antenna along with with some streaming options as a great solution to reducing costs.

If you’re looking to cut the cord and ditch your cable or satelite provider I definitely recommend checking out 1ByOne’s antenna. The HD clarity is great and the channel list is definitely worth the one time price for the antenna instead of a monthly price tag that could probably buy 3 or 4 antennas. Throw in Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime and you will have a nice television experience without a hefty price tag.

You can purchase a 1byone Shiny Super Thin Amplified HDTV Antenna on Amazon US or Amazon UK. Also be sure to follow all of 1byOne’s social media accounts to stay up to date on their latest product offerings as well as other cool info!
