About the book: Millions of people are cutting the cord on old-fashioned cable TVs plans, and choosing more modern, efficient, and cost-effective ways to watch their favorite programming and movies. My TV for Seniors is an exceptionally easy and complete full-color guide to all the services and hardware you’ll need to do it, too. No ordinary “beginner’s book,” it approaches every topic from a senior’s point of view, using meaningful examples, step-by-step tasks, large text, close-up screen shots, and a custom full-colour interior designed for comfortable reading.
