Does Friday mean you have to hit the town? Not when you have Prism TV. Look, if you’re like me, Friday evenings can mark the end of a lonnng week, right? Sometimes it’s so inviting to just say “No” to dinner and a movie – especially when there is something for everyone at the click of your remote. In fact, just recently, Prism TV had Dad’s back in an XL way. With the evening hanging in the balance, all I did was search “On Demand” programming and, whammo, delight the kids with “Maleficent” for free via our movie channels. Then, just as daunting, I had to find an intriguing program for my wife…hmm…hey, what about Concert TV? Ding again! All of a sudden, she was watching Michael Buble play Madison Square Garden. Translation – Dad’s a hero. And, better yet, Dad didn’t have to load the family into the SUV and fight the Friday night crowds. Thanks (again) to CenturyLink.
Well, the time has come at Casa Calvisi! Yes, the time has arrived for Parental Controls. See, we recently found our 8-year-old surfing channels beyond the Kids programming tier. Ruh-roh, right? Actually, as it turns out, no worries. As parents, Prism TV has our collective back. Did you know that Prism offers an option called “controls by ratings.” That simply means that Prism subscribers have the ability to restrict programming based on ratings (R, PG-13), etc. The instructions, found under the Menu key, are easy to navigate. You simply push a few buttons, enter your pin, and begin selecting the programs you would like locked. Whew. In a few minutes, you have peace of mind knowing that your children are watching age appropriate programming. Yet another example of how we made the switch and CenturyLink makes it so worth it.
It’s like owning a smart phone compared to a flip phone. Or using GPS instead of unfolding a map out of the glove box. Prism TV is 2015, while the cable and satellite guys we left behind have become so yesterday, in more ways than one. Powered by CenturyLink’s fiber-optic network, Prism TV set itself apart the first time I picked up the remote. In fact, if we hadn’t already made the switch at Casa Calvisi, we’d make the switch again just based on the innovations alone. How do you place a value on Prism making TV feel like it’s new again? Features like Multi-View, Whole Home DVR, Warp-Speed Channel Change, Prism App Center and the Wireless Set Top Box have become a mandatory part of our viewing experience. Then, when you consider that you get your own direct connection (yet another competitive advantage), well, the decision is clear. With over a half-dozen retail locations across the Valley, I encourage everybody to do what I did – stop by a CenturyLink store for a test drive. Then you’ll be telling me about the upgrade you made at your house!
It’s not only a week of non-stop Super Bowl activities in the Valley, but a week of super sports! Luckily, we have CenturyLink at Casa Calvisi as our competitive advantage. All televisions will be strategically placed thanks to Prism TV’s wireless capabilities.
Golf on the patio, football in the family room, and basketball in the kids’ room. You just can’t beat the flexibility and convenience that wireless connectivity provides. No matter where we place our TV’s or roam with our devices – we’re connected.
In our eyes, CenturyLink is a touchdown, hole-in-one and a slam dunk. Now, please pass the wings!
Sometimes it’s easier to remember what’s NOT on my list of New Year’s resolutions. For example, no longer do I start every year determined to find a better option to cable or satellite. Nope. Ever since we made the switch to CenturyLink and Prism TV, it’s been crossed off our list – permanently. See, not too long ago, we’d seemingly start every year vowing to give the “other guys” a shot. And guess what? We did just that in going from cable to both satellite providers. Then, Prism TV came to our neighborhood. Game over. Seeking a better bundle ceased to become an annual ritual. One call to make one appointment (we had ours on a Saturday) and it’s the last call Casa Calvisi will make in search of the best bundle in the biz.
