Comcast is the nationwide leader in Internet and TV. Without a doubt, there are so many compelling reasons to get started with Comcast’s best-in-class XFINITY service today.

XFINITY offers more than 260 channels of spectacular TV content

The best reason to join XFINITY is the amazing access that you will get to more than 260 of the nation’s best sports, news and entertainment channels. XFINITY has conveniently organized its offerings into three basic tiers:

Starter – 140+ channels including:

  • Bravo
  • FX
  • HGTV
  • NatGeo Wild
  • TBS
  • TNT

Preferred – 220+ channels including all of the above plus:

  • MLB Network
  • Nick Jr.
  • IFC
  • NBA TV
  • Starz Encore

Premium – 260+ channels including all of the above plus:

  • HBO
  • Cinemax
  • Showtime
  • Starz
  • NFL Red Zone

Moreover, at any time, it is very easy to enhance your channel lineup with add-on channels such as HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax or TMC (The Movie Channel). Thus, say for example that you are an XFINITY Preferred customer. You could easily add HBO to complement your package without moving up to the Premium tier.

This flexibility makes it very easy to get exactly what you want. If all you want to do is watch “Game of Thrones,” then it’s very easy to add on HBO. If all you want is the NFL Red Zone to keep up with your favorite NFL football team, then that’s easy also.

XFINITY now offers the innovative X1 service to enhance the entertainment experience

With X1, your XFINITY entertainment experience just got a lot more fun. For example, consider the X1 Voice Remote. No more scrolling through pages of listings to find exactly what you want to watch – you can simply use voice commands to change the channel, search for shows, or get show recommendations about what to watch next.

And with X1, it is now easier than ever to access Netflix. You can now watch all of your favorite Netflix TV shows and movies – it’s all right there on your TV screen at any time. So if you want to watch “Stranger Things,” that’s now very easy to do with X1.

The X1 DVR is the key to unlocking the best movies and shows

With the state-of-the-art X1 DVR, you can record up to six shows at one time. This is a great option to have during some weekend nights, when there might be two or more great games on at one time, combined with a movie you’ve been dying to watch. And, with the X1 DVR, you have the choice to record in standard or high definition (HD), freeing up even more room for storage. You can literally store hundreds of your favorite shows, a season at a time!

The XFINITY Stream app makes it possible to have an on-the-go entertainment experience

Remember the days when you had to watch TV on your couch in your living room? Those days are long over, thanks to innovative XFINITY technology that makes it possible to take your entertainment and shows with you on the go, wherever you go. Just download the XFINITY Stream app, and that’s when the magic happens! For example, you get to take all the top networks and live sports with you on the go, making it very easy to keep up with your favorite sports team right from your tablet device. Open the app, and it’s all right there for you.

Moreover, with the XFINITY Stream app, you also get access to On Demand movies and shows, as well as access to your DVR library. This really opens up the entertainment options for you. Imagine recording the big game from last night to your XFINITY X1 DVR, and then having access to that game from your tablet.

XFINITY Internet delivers blazing-fast connection speeds

The key to enjoying your Internet service is having access to the fastest speeds possible for all of your music downloads, streaming and gaming needs. With XFINITY Internet, you can choose your Internet connection speed from one of five different tiers:

  • 0-10 Mbps
  • 25-55 Mbps
  • 70-100 Mbps
  • 150-200 Mbps
  • 250-350 Mbps

The more devices in your home, of course, the faster the speed you’ll need. But even with an Internet connection speed of 25-55 Mbps, you’ll have more than enough speed and power to stream a movie at the same time as someone else in your household is downloading music or playing an online game.

Best of all, XFINITY is now working on connectivity speeds that could top out at 1 Gig. At that kind of speed, there’s just about nothing that you can’t do on the Internet.

XFINITY makes it easy to take control of your home Wi-Fi

When you have XFINITY Internet, you get access to the xFi Gateway, which is a combination of modem and router, all in one. You get speed, coverage and control, enabling you to distribute xFi Internet throughout your home. And, with X1 Voice, you can actually manage the Wi-Fi right from your TV. For example, you can ask questions like, “Who is using my Wi-Fi now?” or “What’s my Wi-Fi password?”

XFINITY offers a compelling array of bundles to save you money

Remember – XFINITY is a nationwide leader in more than just TV and Internet. There are also options for XFINITY home phone service and plenty of smart home offerings. Plus, XFINITY has now created a wireless network. That really opens up the possibilities to bundle your services via any of the following;

  • Quad Play
  • Triple Play
  • Double Play

The more you bundle, of course, the more you can save. For example, when you sign up for a bundle of three XFINITY services (the Triple Play), there are more opportunities to save then if you just sign up for two XFINITY services (the Double Play).

Suits TV Series Review

Men- with both killer looks and insane machine brains- are a perfect combination. They are also the reason behind the success of Suits. Harvey Specter & Mike Ross make it what it is; I can’t imagine the show without neither of them, and I’m pretty certain that it would be the same case with others that enjoy TV, in general. Not only these two maintain the rapport of suits, but also Harvard amongst other things. Recently I came across the show’s rating: 9.9 for the last episode at IDMB. This is higher than most US Shows!

Suits grabbed my attention initially through the brilliance of Mike Ross, who was just a college-dropout that made it to the office of Harvard’s one and only: Harvey specter, known to be the best attorney in the town. Through just meeting once, they both come together as the result of a drug-deal-turned-onto-interview type of scenario.

Suits 'Donna and the Button' Sarah Rafferty

Suits’ ‘Donna and the Button’ played by Sarah Rafferty

Let’s not forget about Donna! Even girls are drooling over her character. The classy looks, exquisite formals and the mind blowing wittiness, no wonder even Harvey is in her fan list (well that’s controversial.) I am just waiting for the day when Harvey admits his liking towards her, as boldly as she did. And how can I not mention her biggest fan-Louis Lit. I find him cute and funny, the empathies, the traditions and the emotions with the bouncing backs makes the gem of a character, little does he know that Donna is just a treat for a little time, oh! poor Louis (My sympathies.) Moreover, Jessica Pearson is also a great woman, really an inspiration, how she runs the firm is quite intriguing. She is definitely the savior of ‘Pearson Specter Ltd’.

Now, the love birds of the show: none other than Rachel Zane and Mike Ross, their chemistry just rocks everyone’s pants off. Rachel, who is the hottest young lady at the firm matches up perfectly with Mike. Thank god he proposed to her at the proper time, or without a doubt Harold Gunderson could have stolen the show, if you know what I mean.  All the wedding hype in this season is so exciting, thanks to Donna, my love. I just wish Mike’s’ Grandma was there too.  Mr. Zane is a careful father, but I wonder why Rachel refused for Mike to sign the prenup, I hope she is not making a mistake.

The season five finale left everyone on the edge of their seats. Finally, when Mike decided to do the right thing by quitting his job, cops are there to arrest him! What!? Still shocked and wondering what will happen now? I just hope it’s a dream, fingers crossed. You can watch all the previous and current episodes with a subscription to Charter Internet. Start now.

 

The Essential Tips For Visiting Times Square

timessquare

Times Square in New York City is arguably the city’s most popular tourist destination; Times Square is centrally located in the entertainment district and includes many different sites, sounds and attractions for locals and visitors alike. But because Times Square is so popular, it can often be crowded and difficult to navigate. If you are preparing to visit Times Square anytime soon, consider the following essential tips for making the most out of your Times Square visit.

Tip: Consider getting discount theater tickets

Theater is one of New York City’s biggest attractions, but attending shows on Broadway can be expensive, especially if you aren’t traveling alone. However, you can often save big bucks—we’re talking hundreds of dollars—if you consider the options for discount theater tickets. Most major Broadway shows have alternative means of getting tickets that save you big money; these means are usually a ticket lottery and a ticket rush.

times-square-night

A ticket lottery involves showing up at the theater during the designated lottery time to put your name in a big drum—each show will have a certain number of extra tickets allotted for the lottery, and the lucky people whose names are pulled get to purchase tickets at a vastly discounted price.  A rush ticket is purchased on the same day of the performance; most theaters release a certain amount of discounted rush tickets each day.

Tip: Don’t stop on the sidewalk!

times square advertising

Times Square is incredibly busy, and incredibly crowded. It’s important to keep the flow of traffic going as uninterrupted as possible—that means no sudden stopping on the sidewalk, whether it’s because you see something interesting, took a wrong turn, or want to take a picture. Instead of stopping in the middle of the sidewalk, walk as close as you can to the front of a building and stop there.

Tip: Consider leaving the Square for shopping

Unless you specifically want to visit the large and expensive stores that populate Times Square, consider stepping off the Square to do your gift shopping. You can also find more inexpensive restaurants if you leave the bustle of the Square.

Tip: Think outside the theater

There’s so much more to do in the Square than see Broadway shows! The Square is home to various shops, including a large Toys R’ Us, as well as museums—including the family friendly Madame Tussaud Wax Museum and the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Odditorium. If you live in New York City, or plan on moving there, check out the other great entertainment opportunities in NYC.

Everything You Need to Know About Milo from ‘The Mask’

original

The Mask is one of Jim Carrey’s most popular comedy films, and was one of the most popular wacky comedy films from the 90s. One of the main characters from the film, and subsequent sequels and spin-offs, is that of Milo the dog. Milo is the pet companion of Jim Carrey’s character, Stanley Ipkiss, and has appeared in almost every ‘Mask’ film and spin-off. Whether you’re a longtime favorite of the film or are reading up on famous movie dogs, the following is everything you need to know about Milo from The Mask.

The dog actor led to a lot of ad-libbing

Max, the dog actor who played Milo the dog, had never acted in a film before and his occasional inability to do exactly what was asked led to several moments of ad-libbing in the film. Scenes which made the final cut included a scene where Milo would not let go of the frisbee while Stanley Ipkiss tried to hide the stolen money in his closet; in the scripted scene, Milo was supposed to let go of the Frisbee.

Milo is a Jack Russell Terrier—but it wasn’t always going to be that way

Some of the original concepts and early drafts for The Mask described Milo as being a much larger dog (one script described Milo as a golden retriever). However, the film’s creative team decided that Stanley Ipkiss would probably be the type of person to have a smaller, almost wiry dog and the decision was made to redesign the character as a Jack Russell Terrier.

Milo was voiced by Frank Welker in the cartoon

After the success of the film, an animated series titled The Mask: The Animated Series was released. Milo the dog appears frequently in the TV show. His voice was provided by Frank Welker, who has voiced many other dog characters, including Scooby-Doo, Droopy the Dog, Santa’s Little Helper; he has also voiced non-dog animals, such as Abu in Aladdin and Garfield the cat in several Garfield cartoons.

There is a sly reference to Milo in The Son of the Mask

The Son of the Mask featured all new characters, but just like the original film, the main character had a pet dog. In the sequel film, the dog is called “Otis”—a sly reference to the first film’s Milo, via a nod to the popular film Milo and Otis.
