With the news that holiday TV sales increased by 36 percent over last year, it helps put the results of a recent survey by Wakefield Research for Logitech into context. Americans really like their TVs! To that end the survey found that 53 percent of tech-savvy people think a living room without a TV would be worse than a living room without a couch.
And in the age of social media and multitasking, we aren’t just watching TV; we’re plugging away on our smartphones and other devices simultaneously. The survey also found that of those ages 18-44, 95% are doing an average of three activities while watching TV, with about 29 percent likely to Facebook their TV viewing recommendations.
With this in mind, a living room adjustment might be best. Logitech Harmony Link turns your tablet or smartphone into your own remote control. From one device you can control your TV, and enjoy your social community.
What’s more, given the onslaught of new TVs and devices that connect to them, controlling what we hold so dearly can get complicated. Each new device means another remote control to get used to, but don’t fret. If you’re already a Logitech Harmony user, you’ll be able to add almost any device to your existing remote. If you’re adding to your home entertainment system this season, now is the time to save yourself some stress and let Harmony organize the confusion that comes with a great digital living room set up.
Tell us what you think. Would a Harmony remote help make your TV more enjoyable (couch or not?)
