Football in Every Corner

September 11th, 2012

The football season started with a bang over the weekend to fans delight. Statistically, football is the most watched sport in America with almost two thirds of U.S. adults say they watch NFL games, almost three quarters of men (73 percent) and more than half of women (55 percent).

Given that the average NFL game time lasted 3 hours, 6 minutes and 58 seconds last year, it's unlikely you'll spent every moment on the couch.

Family Multitasking

While data shows watching television is Americans' favorite way to spend free time, families still spend time catching up, exercising, cooking dinner and doing chores. So how do you make sure you don't miss a minute while unclogging a sink pipe or cutting vegetables for dinner?

IOGEAR's Wireless HD Digital Kit allows you to stream the games to a second TV in a room up to 100 feet away. Uncompressed HD 1080p and 3D movie content can flow undisturbed through walls and ceilings, eliminating the need for ugly wires and cords cluttering the home. The wireless kit allows you to connect a variety of electronics including Blu-ray players and DVR/cable boxes, while maintaining wireless control.

Set up a small TV in your kitchen or den. Fold some laundry while you watch football, it may make you happier. Some of the best plays ever are just seconds long, so you can be forgiven for not wanting to step away or blink.  Doing chores makes many men happiest

The Game Day Party

Another reason for watching football in multiple rooms – lots of guests. More than 27 million people play fantasy football, so why not bring the team over for some friendly competition? Watching NFL Game

Watch Just How You Want

Does one person in your family watch the game intently with the volume up, while another would prefer the game on mute to also talk on the phone? More than half of American cell phone users say they use their cell phones while watching TV to distract themselves from the boredom of the game, fill time during commercial breaks or text a friend watching somewhere else.

The den can be for the true fan -- pure loud, uninterrupted football -- while the game streamed into the bedroom can be a more relaxed experience.
