Thread: TV in rooms

    Default TV in rooms

    Hello all,

    While we certainly aren't going on vacation to watch TV, I am sure that it will happen, especially since we are going at the end of rainy season.

    I am curious about a couple of things. All of the room classes advertise "Flat Screen TV with Satellite Cable". What is the channel selection like? Just the basic American cable channels? Any movie channels? How about sports channels? Any Canadian channels?

    If we were to bring a laptop and HDMI cable, would we be able to connect to their TVs and stream videos, either from the hard-drive or online?

    I hope that we never turn the TV on, but like I said, we are catching the end of the rainy season, so we may need to, plus we enjoy falling asleep watching a little TV.

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve

    They do have modern flat screen TV's. I assume they would have a HDMI input. We turned the TV on once when we where there to watch the end of the last game of the Stanley Cup. It was on a Canadian sports channel in standard definition. I didn't pay much attention as I flipped through stations looking for the game but they did not appear to have that many chanels.

    We just returned from CSS.

    There were several Movie Channels (HBO, Cinemax, and I believe Showtime)
    Sports Channels: ESPN and a 2nd ESPN Channel. There were a few other sports channels that showed a lot of Rugby, Soccer, and Cricket.
    Several American station feeds from Miami, Chicago, NY, and LA.
    I believe there was a Canadian channel, and BBC.
    National American News Channels: HLN, CNN, and Fox News.

    A few local Jamaican channels.

    We brought ROKU with us and were able to stream movies and music on our TV.

    We choose a room without the TV! That said, as we always bring a laptop, we bring an USB stick with movies and interesting TV series (go BBC, PBS, AUS, and NZ) to watch between coming off the beach and heading to the Martini Bar! We'd rather not hit the TV and be brought back to the real news while on vacation.

    I know they have HBO. We couldn’t miss the Season finale of Game of Thrones when we went.

    I was wondering the same thing. My wife and I went to another adults only resort in Jamaica two years ago, and they had 3 porn channels.

    Did this thread really go from technological capabilities to porn choices? Haha, awesome.

    Our favorite thing to do after a day on the beach is to go back to our room after dinner some nights and watch a good movie. We don't do this every night. We love the beach bonfire night, but we are no longer late night partiers. I too would be interested to know if the input into the TV is a typical HDMI port. We always bring our laptop with the movies already downloaded on it.

    You probably want to download anything you plan to watch at home instead of streaming. We have had issues with YouTube and Comcast (our cable company) not loading content because of international copyright laws. Also, thank you for the reminder to pack our HDMI cable.

    The TV in our room had several HDMI ports in it.
