- 48th CMA Awards
- The Walking Dead
- America’s Newsroom
We term our non-sports list “entertainment,” and while Tuesday’s midterm elections were certainly entertaining for one side of the aisle, the title might be a misnomer this week: Only four shows on this week’s top 10 were “shows” in the sense of being a scripted or reality series. Three news shows, two morning shows and an awards show made up the rest of the list.
We always promote Slingbox as the best way how to watch sports live, but this week, many of our customers were using Slingbox to watch a different kind of sport — the biennial election extravaganza in the U.S. in which the entire House of Representatives, one third of the Senate and a bevy of state governorships are up for grabs. This night ended in across-the-board victory for the Republican party, which might explain why all three of the news shows on the list made it there because of Slingbox users watching Fox News live.
With the CMA Awards, we also saw the first of what should be a busy live awards show season on Slingbox — anyone interested in watching the Golden Globes live online, or watching the Oscars live online, etc., is definitely going to want a Slingbox as the winter continues! We’ll be back with our sports top 10 tomorrow.
