SHOULD YOU BUY TV Buddy Cast?
I used to have CHROMECAST and I have to confess it is nice hardware. It’s easy to set up and it works pretty well.
But I started to get annoyed about my Chromecast because every time I searched for something online or broadcast a YouTube video to my TV, I would be flooded with ads from Google. And the ads matched the subjects of I was watching.
I felt that Google was using my Chromecast to spy on me. So I did not feel that I had my privacy with Google Chromecast.
When I saw the Ad about TV Buddy Cast, a device that would let me watch ads free videos and that is cheaper than the Google unit.
That is one of the main reasons that this multimedia unit is a great buy: its price. It’s super cheap for a device that will allow you to watch local and international programs… All for just a one-time payment of under $ 40.
If it’s about value, there’s not much to think about here, TV Buddy Cast becomes a great deal for you that can’t, like me, be without a good TV show daily without the ads from Google.
WHERE TO BUY?
I purchased TV Buddy Cast on the company’s official website, one of the world’s largest distributors of entertainment and multimedia technology devices. The purchase of the unit was made very quickly on the site that has encryption and enhanced security. The TV Buddy Cast unit took approximately 9 days to arrive at my house, and during the logistics and delivery process the company provided all the arrival time data in a very timely and efficient manner.
