With new developments happening day-to-day we find that it’s hard to escape the phrases “social-distancing” and “lockdown” but we believe that even during these times it is critical to stay positive and make the most of the time spent at home with your families.

Although family time is enjoyable, being with only a handful of people can leave many missing that social connection we crave as human beings. Whether it be your best friend, favourite cousin or workout buddy, most of us can agree that we just want to go out and enjoy some company.

But for the moment, that is easier said than done.

With the many features our Android TVs offer we would like to highlight some of the best ways you can use your TCL TV to keep yourself busy and entertained while indoors.

Keeping Fit

With no access to gyms or fitness studios anytime soon you won’t have to worry about missing out on a good workout with a TCL Android TV. Starting a weekly workout routine can be a great way to pass the time while at home.

There are many bodyweight exercises that can find the burn or you might be lucky enough to have access to your own equipment. It is said that with as little as a 30-minute daily workout you can be well on your way to a building muscle and/or burning calories. 

Whether you’re watching your favourite Fitspo on YouTube or have downloaded one of the many fitness apps from the Google Play Store, the opportunity is always there to keep fit and stay healthy.

A couple great options from the Google Play store include:

Daily Burn: Free 30-day trial; on-demand workouts including beginner yoga, high-intensity cardio and strength training.

Yoga | Down Dog: A leading app in the yoga industry, no workout is the same with over 60,00 configurations and is a great option for people looking to continue their yoga at home or are just starting out.

Pump Up The Tunes

Working from home may be a blessing for some but a curse to others. However, in most cases you can rely on music to get you in the right mindset!

Headphones may not always be the solution either. Many people feel a greater sense of calmness and relieve stress better playing their music throughout the room to get rid of those not so productive vibes.

You can stream many different genres of music straight from your device to your TV via the built-in Chromecast.

Alternatively, head to the Google Play Store on your TV to download apps like Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube that are now much easier to use. You also have the option of subscribing to Google Play Music to get access to any song or album immediately on your TV.

Master-class Cooking

Whether you’re a veteran of the kitchen or just starting your journey, it’s a great opportunity to brush up on the basics and try new and exciting recipes.

You won’t need a cook book though as TCL Android TV has got your covered. With the power of YouTube, you can steal a few cooking tips from the likes of Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver and many other great chefs.

Bigger Screens, Better Work

Working from home conditions can be tough for many people, especially those who don’t have everything they need. With a TCL Android TV there are a few options to make the most of your space and get that extra screen real estate to make work easier.

Using the built-in Chromecast you are able to stream your computer straight to your TV, blowing up your view to take the strain off your eyes by increasing your screen size.

An alternative option is using a HDMI cord and connecting it directly into any of the HDMI ports on the back of your TCL TV. After connecting and choosing the HDMI input, you may have to edit the display settings by either duplicating the screen or creating a ‘dual-screen’ set up to increase productivity.

Family Fun Time

Being the hub of/for family entertainment is what your TV should really be used for. It will be the center of attention for the many movie nights that are sure to come in the months ahead.

With a TCL Android TV you get a world of fun at your fingertips. Movies, TV Shows, games and other great entertainment just got a whole lot better with our brilliant 4K display options to choose from.

Enjoy the best graphics your system and game can offer whilst truly appreciating the capabilities of your TCL TV so you can take your gameplay to the next level.

With all these features you can keep the kids entertained all day long so you can focus on getting your work done and when it’s time to kick your feet back and relax you can rest assured that you will be able to find the entertainment you’re looking for!
