Stressed out? Wish you were in the Caribbean?
Comcast has a very cool On Demand feature called the Windows Channel which you can find within the Get Local menu. The premise is that viewers can take a virtual vacation for about 45 minutes. My favorite is the Caribbean. I also love Rocky Beaches (West Coast) and Waterfalls. All are available in HD. If you turn on your surround sound, it feels and sounds like you are there.
The virtual Caribbean vacation takes viewers on 11 visits to locations in the Virgin Islands, Aruba, and the Bahamas from sunrise to sunset: Aruba, St. John’s, Leinster Bay, Trunk Bay, Francis Bay, Cinnamon Beach, and Grand Bahama Island.
You can hear the shore birds and the waves hit the beach.
You can watch a scuba diver.
Take in the view from the ocean and the hills.
Watch a sail boat float across the water.
Return to Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Beach/Bay several times during the day.
And, watch the sun set at Cinnamon Beach.
Each time I watch, I am reminded that it really is better in the Bahamas. And, on this trip, I don’t have to endure TSA pat-downs or blizzard-related scheduling hassels or worry about the cost. I can “travel” to paradise with a few clicks of my remote.
The Windown Channel is scheduled to be available until December 31. Kick back, and enjoy your trip!
