The best football weather is finally here! The cool days used to be filled with parking lots of sports fans gathering to grill and chill before kick-off. Tailgating in 2020, however, is a bit harder.
While watching football in person is still an option in some cities, many limit gathering crowds and have eliminated tailgating as a pre-game ritual. For the sports fan who’s pining for a great burger and good conversation, virtual tailgating is a modern solution.
Countdown to Game Time
Tailgating doesn’t have to be eliminated from your pre-game routine, you just need a new way to gather with friends. We have some ideas:
- Sharing on a screen: Share the game time experience with friends on Squad. You can use the app to create a watch room, invite friend, and screen share video of the game.
- Tailgating at a distance: Weather throughout November and December along the South Carolina coast is still super comfortable. Host a tailgating party in your backyard, giving you enough space to socially-distance from friends. Use an outdoor television, your computer, or a mobile device to connect to your HTC High-Speed Internet to power the HTC TV MAX With your reliable Wi-Fi connection, you can stream the live game via the TV MAX app, and even if some guests migrate indoors, TV MAX content can stream on seven devices simultaneously.
- Neighborhood night out: Rent a big screen with a projector and host a neighborhood block party to watch the game. Community spaces like a pool or clubhouse area should give you enough space to properly socially distance. Use the TV Everywhere app – included with your HTC Digital Cable or TV MAX membership – to access the big game and play it on your jumbo screen.
It’s Game Time!
Don’t allow COVID-19 to stop you from enjoying football season and tailgating. By using technology, HTC High-Speed Internet, and HTC TV MAX, you can create a safe, fun environment for your family and friends.
