Happy families

Watching and listening online has helped the whole family in lots of different ways.

Tamara and Darren don't have to miss programs or disagree over what to watch anymore.

Since David introduced her to online radio, Gran has been finding stations she can tune in to all over the world.

Now she can listen to her favourite 60s songs at any time of day, and she's even thinking of sending in requests by email.

David loves the TV subscription service as he can watch comedy series for hours on end without having to buy the DVDs.

He's also signed up to a music streaming site so that he can listen to songs and download them legally.

She's started sharing her own videos as well so that her friends can see her playing new songs.
