A Down the Tubi Rabbit Hole Weekly Link Round-Up

Reading, knitting, Christmas decorating, addressing Christmas cards... I've certainly been keeping myself occupied. I finished Denis's afghan-- you'll see it in a future post-- and it's obvious that he likes snuggling under it while he watches television, even if his eyes do seem to be closed most of the time.

The one thing that's changed for me recently is the television I've been watching on the nights Denis works. I think I heard about it from a British TV email that I subscribe to, but don't quote me on that. We have Roku, and last week I searched the various channels for a free streaming channel called Tubi TV. Eureka! 

You do have to watch a few commercials when you're streaming a program from Tubi, but I don't find them very intrusive. I have watched a movie, but 99% of the time, I'm watching something from their Home & Garden, Lifestyle, or Documentaries selections.

Why? Because I love programs featuring architecture, interior design, renovation, restoration, and Tubi is a gold mine for those types of programs. I've been watching people house hunt in South Africa and Australia, turn a palace in Spain into a boutique hotel, and renovate listed buildings of all sorts in England... and more. I've barely scratched the surface. If you love this sort of programming, you should give Tubi a try. But be careful-- you just might fall down the rabbit hole like I did!

And before I nosedive into the Tubi burrow again, I'd better hotfoot it out to the corral. I'm hearing some restless links. Head 'em up! Moooove 'em out!

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure. 

Stay safe. Stay healthy. And don't forget to curl up with a good book!


  1. That's the thing about discovering a new streaming channel, isn't it, Cathy? The rabbit hole looks soooooo appealing! I'll have to check that one out. That is, as soon as I get back from that fort in the Golan Heights. And then that Roman military base...

    1. After all that exploring, you'll be watching Tubi with your eyes closed just like Denis! ;-)

  2. I am in need of a new rabbit hole. :) Thanks for the links!

    1. You're welcome! (It's good to have a burrow with a lot of rooms...)

  3. I'm glad to hear your experience of another streaming channel. My husband had to look around again for a way to watch the San Antonio Spurs basketball, whenever it starts again. The channels that offer that keep being dropped from various platforms. Sigh. Seriously, could they just leave the channels alone - we have enough to adjust to. We have DISH and they dropped our NBC channel for now - supposedly negotiating. I hate change. Have I ever told you that? LOL

    1. I hate change on many things, too, and I've noticed that sports channels on TV seem to have the most trouble staying put. It's a good thing I don't watch much sports!

  4. Just watched a PP video with Barbara and 7 women authors. It was so much fun, and also promoted a few authors and books I didn't know about. I could watch these videos all day and just veg out.

    1. It would be easy to do that. It sounds as though you were watching the Jungle Red Writers.

  5. Yes. That's who I was watching. A few use pseudonyms, but I knew most of them, although I hadn't read books by them. Real characters and a lot of wit.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
