Learning to Love Online Entertainment

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GlideTV. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have to confess. I'm not a big fan of watching online videos. Mainly, I don't have the patience to sit through them and wait for the punchline not to mention I quickly bore of them. My husband and 2 year old son however LOVE online videos. I have been easing into the online video world through Hulu and Netflix- we're even changing our Netflix subscription to only having one DVD sent to our house and the rest streaming.

I came across the opportunity to check out and review What's On. What's On is a free online service that brings online videos into one easy place. It is a visual guide to online entertainment where users can browse a video wall of TV shows, movies, news and sports that are available across the entire web. The video wall, organized by category and genre, is much more natural for living room use than going from web site to web site scrolling through lists of available videos. You can browse by type of content, genre, free content, etc not to mention  you can get news about celebrities, new music, and information from various social media networks. It is a great tool for connecting with pop culture. You can even search the most popular videos, movies, sports and news people are watching on the web right now. “What’s On” is a great way to browse and access NetFlix streaming content other than within the NetFlix browser.

My geeky husband will attest that when you get your computer hooked up to your TV it changes the experience immensely. I have to admit... I agree with him. He just did this in his office and the video experience is so much better- bigger and much more crisp in appearance. What do I like about "What's On"? It takes a couple elements of impatience out of the equation for me: 1) It does the searching for me for the most popular video content, 2) It puts it all in one central location taking away the need to have a million different browser tabs open.

It really is pretty cool and from a reformed online video hater, I highly encourage you to check out "What's On" for yourself. I have a feeling this will be my next big internet addiction.
