Virtual Tailgating Reunites Sports Fans

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.
