Being an empty nester has its advantages. Few things in life are as gratifying, though, as gathering around the TV with your grown kids and their kids to enjoy a show or movie as one big happy family! Whether you’re laughing or wiping away a sentimental tear, doing it with those you love is an absolutely wonderful experience.
You certainly don’t need a holiday to share good times like this with the most important people in your life. But now that the giving season is upon us, consider presenting them with a subscription to Frndly TV. The first live and on-demand streaming service for the American Family, it offers over 1,000 titles across 13 top-rated channels, including Hallmark Channel, Game Show Network, The Weather Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Outdoor and Sportsman Channels, PIxL, and QVC.
Frndly TV is a special family gift everyone will undoubtedly appreciate over and over again.
Wherever you’re gathered with your family this season, start tuning into a world of exceptional programming, including Hallmark movie Christmas at The Plaza. It stars charming British actress Elizabeth Henstridge as Jessica Cooper, an archival historian hired to create an exhibition recalling Christmas celebrations at the iconic hotel. Struggling in a waning romantic relationship with a self-absorbed professor, Jessica meets unassuming Nick Perrelli, who is decorating The Plaza for the holidays this year. Played by Ryan Paevey, Nick helps Jessica recognize the value of self-esteem and the definition of true love.
Watching the movie brought back memories of the grand hotel during the holidays, excited children dashing about the magnificent lobby and harried shoppers unwinding over steaming cocoa at The Palm Court. I also loved seeing actress Julia Duffy in it, who made me laugh every week on Newhart, the eighties hit sitcom.
From Uplifting Originals To Favorite Oldies
Set your sights on UPtv, Frndly TV’s new channel addition, and introduce younger family members to some of the other stars and popular series you enjoyed back in the day, like Reba McEntire in the sitcom Reba. Who can forget talented Reba as the wisecracking single mother whose dentist husband left her to marry his young, ditzy (and pregnant) dental hygienist? Or catch the comedy-drama Gilmore Girls, with Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as single mother Lorelai and daughter Rory in the storybook Connecticut town of dreamers, artists and everyday people.
UPtv offers uplifting original movies and series, too, such as Our Wedding Story, featuring couples’ breathtaking experiences, from the moment they meet to their walk down the aisle. Exceptionally produced, the series makes you feel like you actually know the couples and are a guest at their weddings. Besides, who isn’t intrigued by real-life love stories?
A Stupendous Streaming Service For A Super Special Sum
Frndly TV is a special gift for those who have finally cut off their preposterously expensive cable service and are searching for the perfect family oriented entertainment they can stream. Even little kids are welcomed into the Frndly TV family with the BabyFirst channel to help introduce them to colors, numbers, letters and animals. The service is designed using the familiar linear grid guide so it’s a breeze to browse shows. You can record your favorite shows and movies; go back 72 hours to view any programming that aired during the three days, and start a program from the beginning if you tuned in late. You can stream at home on Roku, Amazon, Chromecast, and Apple TV, or on-the-go with iOS and Android. Subscribers also can customize their packages to include features like unlimited Cloud DVR that stores all recordings for 90 days, and streaming on four devices at the same time!
All pretty cool and worry free, right?
There’s more cool: a $5.99 monthly fee for the core service. Just think, a gift this special, with a price this affordable, makes it a gift well worth giving. Santa will even want a subscription for himself, Mrs. Claus and their family of hard-working elves.
