This post brought to you by Merge by Windstream. All opinions are 100% mine.
This last weekend I went visiting my family in rural Wyoming, and the slow internet and constant dropping of signal really annoyed me. I never realized just how spoiled I was living in a more populated area with better service. It got me thinking that maybe my family could really benefit from Merge by Windstream.
Remember the first time I talked about Merge? Merge allows you to have high speed streaming entertainment in your home. It brings all the entertainment value of the internet straight to your television! You can stream movies straight to your TV! Normally we just have to use our computers for this, but to have it directly on the TV? That would make family "movie" time much more simple!
Merge uses a simple Roku streaming device to stream your entertainment not only to your Television but also to your laptop, desktop, tablet and even your mobile phone! And Merge ensures that you have seamless streaming because of their high speed internet options! The last time I tried to stream a movie on my computer through my dad's internet connection it would hardly play at all. It would constantly stop and buffer, and then freeze, disconnect and then have to start all over. I can tell you I had some mighty frustrated kids! It's probably why most of my family pays the high cost of a dish service to get TV because the internet quality in their area just can't handle streaming. Yet Merge could possibly fix this and offer a better internet service which would allow for more entertainment.
What I love most is that you can watch your TV, games and all that merge offers on your own schedule! Don't have time to sit and watch your Friday night show? No problem! You can access that same show whenever you have time to sit and watch it. You don't have to worry about scheduling a recording session either!
Merge offers a high speed internet connection, Roku 2 HD streaming box, 24/7 U.S. based support and Unlimited nationwide calling! Oh yeah, you can use it for phone calls too! Basically it's all your services rolled into one low monthly cost!
Merge programs start at just $52.99/month and are available in multiple speed tiers starting at 3MB all the way up to 24MB speed.
