6 1/2 years ago, we made the decision to get rid of our cable connection. We did it for various reasons – one of which was the fact that the programs that were on TV at the time were not really worthy of our viewing (and, 6 1/2 years later, things are worse, instead of better).
We do have Netflix and, thanks to their instant streaming option through the Wii, we enjoy watching lots of movies (and tv shows) together as a family. We very much enjoy our times together in the evenings when we can all sit down together and watch something fun.
Recently, I learned about Family Movie Nights on NBC. Here is what the website has to say:
Walmart and P&G have partnered to create the Family Moments initiative to help moms and families better connect with each other. Family Movie Night is a part of that movement to provide meaningful entertainment for the entire family.
During Family Movie Night, you can be confident that the programming on their screens will be fun and action-packed, without the worry of having to dive for the remote to change the channel when inappropriate ads or other content comes on. Soundtracks for the films also feature top producers and artists. The day after airing,a special 2-disc DVD/CD bonus pack will be available for purchase exclusively through Walmart.
By providing this block of time, Walmart and P&G are striving to reconnect families across the country that are bombarded by busy schedules and the lack of programming that’s appealing to everyone. Tune in and see what the buzz is about.
If you have access to television, I’d encourage you (and your whole family) to sit down next Friday night – 12/3 – at 8pm EST – and view this movie together. Here’s a sneak peek:
