Record Mozart in the Jungle - You won't regret it!

June 8, 2016 | Tracy's Blog

Kudos to Amazon for their original series. I love seeing more producers and channels for TV shows that are brushed aside by the big networks. I just finished the 2nd season of Mozart in the Jungle – an Amazon original series. Delightful. I loved it. It accompanied me from Virginia to Seattle without a moment of boredom…thanks to PlayOn’s recording feature. Next up is Catastrophe or Orphan Black. I’m doing a bake off with the pilots…would love to know what others think about either!

PlayOn Recordings – Perfect for Memorial Day

May 23, 2016 | Tracy's Blog

Each year we pack up the kids for memorial day weekend and fly across the country to visit the grandparents. My sister packs her kids in the car and drives 6 hrs down the coast to join as well. What makes 6 hours of flying or 6 hours of driving with 2 school-aged kids bearable? PlayOn Plus. Simple. Cheap. I fill the family iPad with their favorites and plug them in and they watch until their eyes are blurry. People on the plane tell me – “Wow, your kids are so well behaved, I didn’t realize they were even on the plane.” That’s right. Thanks PlayOn.
