To all of my readers who do not already know ~ our family uses the Clear Play dvd player. And believe me you, it really does work.
You use it like you use any other dvd player (in fact you can use it to watch any dvd, with or without filtering). Simply download your filters at your Clear Play account, put the "stick" (usb drive) into the Clear Play dvd player, throw in the video you choose to watch and you're ready to enjoy a movie without objectionable content.
Users can adjust the settings on the filter to suit their family's individual preferences. For example, in the film "Over the Hedge" you can actually set the filter to remove the scene wherein Hammy burps his A-B-C's. Our family is okay viewing a cartoon hyperactive rodent belching the alphabet; but it's nice to know we won't see the things our family isn't okay with.
And since the filters remain on your player once they have been downloaded, you don't have to continually reload the filter every time you watch a certain movie. You can even take the "stick" with you when you travel & watch movies with filters on your laptop in your hotel room or while driving in the car. The company is easy to work with, has excellent customer service, reasonable pricing (especially at this time of year!) and they will add a filter for movies per your request.
One example of their quality of customer service is this: our original Clear Play dvd player stopped working. They emailed us a postage paid label so that we could ship the player to them. They also sent us another (upgraded) dvd player ~ the same day...without ever seeing our broken player. They never intended to "fix" our player - they just replaced it with a better model. The kicker? We had received the original player as a part of promotion wherein we only paid shipping. For under $15 we have had 2 Clear Play dvd players. They mean it when they say their goal is to provide you with the best customer service experience you've ever had. And the result is loyal customers, like our family :)
So, I'm posting this because Clear Play is currently having a Christmas special on their players and services. If you would like to learn more about the Clear Play experience, visit their website at www.clearplay.com. Right now you can get the Clear Play dvd player and a 3-month membership for only $99. That is a really good deal & I promise, the filters really do work without interrupting the flow of the movie. If you take advantage of this offer via this blog post, be sure to mention my name (or my husband's - or both our names - LOL! - Tony and/or Jan Burt).
Happy video viewing!
Day 59 done :)
