After cruising around theLos Angles, Long Beach and Santa Barbara areas of Southern California for nearly two weeks, I’m ready to move out there! The nearly endless sunshine, coastal driving, beautiful outdoor settings, and delicious dining venues and bars will do that to you.

Watching TV Anywhere With Vantage TV by Frontier

tv-anywhere-frontier

Technology amazes me all the time. I’ve been late to the DVR party (I know …), but since I’ve started using the tool through my Vantage TV by Frontier, I’ve been loving it. With traveling and going into the city often, I make use of my DVR all the time. Recording new episodes of favorite shows (this winter season those include American Housewife, The Mick, and Agents of Shield), reruns, and moves to watch later. Along with DVR, another nifty tool that Frontier offers is TV Anywhere, which, as the name implies, lets you enjoy what’s on TV anywhere you are. More below: Read the rest of this entry

One of the things I really miss when I’m traveling is my home’s Internet speed. It’s kind of sad, but true and honest since we live in such a connected time. A fast internet connection is important for work and leisure – in particular, streaming content on various devices. Whether it’s a streaming service used to re-watch favorite shows and movies or getting lost in the pages of YouTube, we are always watching something (or planning on it later). An excellent way to stay wired is with Frontier. Read the rest of this entry
