Ahhhh, it's Sunday afternoon and the family is sitting down to watch some NFL Football. This is a scene that happens in households all over America.
Then the commercials start.
Parents can protect their kids from those pesky erectile dysfunction ads and off-the-wall beer commercials that seem to run during live sports. with no commercials, through MyTVChoice, which puts parents in control of live TV.
In fact, when the program switches to a commercial, with MyTVChoice, your channel switches to a secondary “safe channel” that also is showing live programming.
All you have to do is plug the MyTVChoice Gateway into a wall socket, download the link to your WIFI enabled computer, and then go and download the MyTVChoice to your iPhone (any model), Android, iPad or Android tablet. This app will pretty much work on any mobile device.
Parents need to take the lead in determining what their kids will watch.
“Now the parent is driving the bus and can have a far more enjoyable, relaxing experience watching the game, reality or awards show, because they are not worrying what their children will be exposed to during a commercial,” said company founder Rich Theriault. “Many parents worry about the damage TV ads can do to their children, but feel helpless to do anything about it during shows they want to see live. We’ve created a total paradigm shift in how parents can watch live TV with a disruptive technology that is long overdue.”
So far, the app has been a hit.
“I think this is a must-have tool for parents with young kids, but it’s also a great way to take control over your live TV experience for anyone. We’re definitely having a much more family friendly football season this year,” Andrew Beckwith, Executive Vice President, Mass. Family Institute said in a recent interview.
