    Our smart phones are wonderful for an amazing amount of different amusements, this being nothing short of cute. I love animals and everything I can learn from them is a lesson I would not wish to miss. I have an Android and have recently made the decision to become a Dish Network subscriber simply because I can get so many more options than cable. I can have more programming but more importantly more channels in HD. I watch a lot of learning programs that are essential to my collection of knowledge but, I also record a lot as well. Upon learning that I would be traveling for my job with Dish, I began researching the options available to me. I already have a DVR so that’s covered but I decided to get a Sling Adapter to stream all my programming to my Android in HD. This way I’m keeping up on the shows I watch regularly but also have the recordings available to me as well. There are so many great shows about animal behavior and adaptations to our changing climate that this ability to keep my learning vice with me will be fantastic.
