Costa Rica Attracts Some Strange People!

February 3rd, 2018

I long ago gave up watching ANY US news station. If it’s not outright fake news, it is so heavily biased either to the point of view of the network or the reporter to make it all but useless. They are ALL guilty.  <end rant/>

Enter the BBC! I get all BBC channels (and there are a TON) on my Internet TV or the news is always available via browser BBC News. With few exceptions it’s my only source of real news.

As any ex-pat living here knows… Costa Rica attracts some truly strange dudes (and dudettes!).  This BBC video gives an excellent example of these… um… people.  In the video there is  a link if you wish to watch the original documentary. Enjoy… and by all means, share below with others who is your favorite personality.  Me?  I like the toilet lady!

This is going to be a bit more complex post and contains technical stuff so I will try to keep it simple for all readers.

First of course is what is IPTV?  It stands for Internet Protocol Television.

Yeah ok… so what is that? When you watch TV, you must be connected to a source.  Most common sources are streamed ( via cable modem, DSL with modem, etc), Satellite, or even antennas (anyone remember those??).  Wherever you live… IPTV might be a great option, especially in Costa Rica.

OK… decision time.  Interested? read on… Continue reading »
