Is Buying Refurbished A Good Idea? And Watching TV Online


Consumer Reports joined Into Tomorrow this week to talk about buying refurbished electronics.


Chris recommended apps to watch TV online:

I’m actually talking about a category of apps this week. Most people watch at least some TV. Of those, many don’t ever watch anything “Live”, rather they DVR their shows so they can watch them whenever they want. If you don’t have a DVR but still want to time-shift your shows, you can in many cases. Most TV networks have an app that will give you access to a lot of their content. I have apps on my iPhone from the four broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) as well as cable channels like History Channel, National Geographic, HBO and Showtime. The apps themselves are all free, although some of the cable networks require you to sign in, to verify that you are a subscriber to their channels at home. Now I can watch most of my shows on my phone or tablet from anywhere in the country. Once I logged into the HBO Go and Showtime Anywhere apps, using my Comcast login, I have access to a couple hundred on-demand movies , as well as those networks’ original content. It’s really helped keep me entertained while on the road. (Except outside the country. They don’t work when you’re you are abroad. So if you’re a TV buff, you may want to check out the apps from your favorite channels.
