I love my new apple tv! I am totally hooked! I’ve been having so much fun with it. Since it arrived yesterday I’ve been busy playing around with it. Its the fourth gen apple tv. Its the one where you can download apps onto it. So I’ve got plenty of things to watch now. I subscribe to amazon prime, net flicks, there is youtube, apple music, then my own tv provider Eir has also started broadcasting its service on apple tv, so all of the channels I get from them are available. I also have the RTE player, RTE is our local broadcaster, I also have the BBC I player which broadcasts the UK TV channels. My smart tv is in my spare bedroom, and my apple tv is connected up in there. I have a bed in there so I can sleep in there if I am watching the TV. Oh I can also read my audio books, on my apple tv. Its fantastic. I found this new service too called Ibox which streams tv channels to people in ireland for 10 euro a month, for that you can stream, record, and rewatch the last 7 days worth of programmes that have been broadcast. I’m so happy I decided to go for the upgrade. The whole thing is also accessible to me with voice over. My sister just had to activate the voice over on the tv for me. I was so thankful to my sis for setting up the tv yesterday. It only took about 30 minutes in total. I definitely recommend it to anyone whose thinking about it. Its well worth the money. Both net flicks and prime are only 7.99 a month each. And most things are on them, between the two platforms you can get most things, along with the other services which are free, it makes for a great viewing experience.
My tv provider just called. They had an upgrade for me!
I am getting a fourth gen apple tv!
My TV provider are putting their programmes on the apple tv platform now.
They’re upgrading all of their current customers. As it is my tv uses wifi to stream the channels.
This is a great offer, as to buy an apple tv outright is about 150 euro.
I am so pleased! I called my sister and she said she’d help me to set it up once it arrives.
I do already have an apple tv, but its just a 3rd gen one.
I’m really happy this is happening!
The nice thing is that the guy on the phone got my overall monthly bill down from 155 euro to 114.99. So I am saving a lot on my bills from now on!
so today at the ils course was really good. on tuesday mornings our first class is digital media. i like this module. its all to do with computers and doing stuff like recording videos, facebook, making itunes playlists and using itunes, etc. its fairly simple for me since i already knew how to do most of the stuff they ask of you in the module. it has taken the rest of the class 5 months to complete the module where as i completed it in a month. my teacher was so impressed with me this morning when i completed the last of the work for it. next week we have an exam and then that module will be done. the exam is pretty simple so I am not worried in the least. I will ace it and I know that. after break we were meant to be cooking but we didnt, because our tutor said she wanted to use the time to catch the others up on their work, some of the class had been out sick and on holidays lately and so had gotten behind on their work. i was irked we didnt cook since cooking is one of my favourite modules. i like to cook and then i like to take photos of what i’ve cooked to share here and on facebook. it gives me a great sense of achievement. after lunch the main tutor wanted me to go to the bus stop with nitro. but i really wasnt in the mood. i said i had a headache which wasnt a lie, and i said i would prefer to wait until tomorrow. she let me but she said she wasnt happy. oh well. i think it should be up to me how fast me and nitro learn the bus route. makes no sense to push and push me does it? i know sometimes you need an extra push and i would be the first to admit that sometimes i do need the encouragement. but today i just wasnt up for it. our afternoon session was a little scattered. we all did different things. normally on tuesdays i am volunteering in cork city partnership but i didnt do it today since the driver couldnt take me as he wasnt free. so it meant i was in class for the afternoon. i just caught up on college work while the others did bills and budgeting and employment law. i missed not volunteering today. hopefully i can do it agan next week. after class ended i went upstairs, set an alarm on my phone and lay down for an hour to sleep. i was wrecked. i’m not sure what is making me so tired lately, whether its a med or something but I seem to never feel rested lately. I seem to always be tired. its hard to know which med might be causing my issues since i take a few. all i can do is keep a check on it and if the tiredness continues talk with dr. barry. enjoyed a nice dinner of home made burger and fries and a chocolate and orange cheese cake for dessert. i had never tasted orange mixed with chocolate in a cheesecake before. it was delicious! after dinner i went to my room and played on my new apple tv for a while. i am loving it. i went on net flicks but man there was so much choice that i didnt know what to watch. ha that is the thing too much and then i cant choose lol its the did ok? i’ll blame the did! ha. in the end i watched killer kids, and i watched an episode about kids who were into the occult and so committed murders to do with the occult. it was so interesting, a bit gorey but fascinating to watch. i highly recommend it if you have net flicks. its the first episode of the killer kids show. i want to start watching 13 reasons why this weekend. it looks good.
