Most of us enjoy reclining under the covers watching TV when there is a chill in the air or as a prelude to calling it a night.

The dilemma is that it’s just too tight under the old-style top sheet and blanket.

Whether you’re a reality fan, a movie fan, binge-watching a series, or simply watching the news…your under-the-covers, TV viewing will be a far better experience than ever before, as your feet will be free and unconstrained under your Kangapoda.

For those of you who like to sleep on your back…Hallelujah…you will no longer have to un-tuck the covers and have your feet protrude to be comfortable.

  

 

Why are ergonomics for the bed top sheets more important than ever before?

Pointing your toes under the tucked-in covers is NOT comfortable

  

TVs in the Bedroom Have Changed the Role of the Bed

 

In 1950, television had barely begun to show up in the living room let alone in the bedroom. 

The proliferation of the television has had a dramatic, cascading effect on how the bed is used.  According to Wikipedia: “By 1947, when there were 40 million radios in the U.S., there were about 44,000 television sets (with probably 30,000 in the New York area).”  The U.S. population in 1950 was 150 million.  

Said differently, in 1950, television had barely begun to show up in the living room let alone in the bedroom. It was a brand new, expensive luxury that the fortunate few were just starting to purchase. 

 

Since almost no one at all had a TV,

we guesstimate that fewer than 1,000 families in the United States had a TV in the bedroom in 1950.

The invention of the VCR, the progression to DVD, and, of course, the shift from pure broadcast to cable and direct satellite with the concomitant explosion of new channels and other on-demand programming options drove television’s expansion into many new locations in the home - including the bedroom - in exponential numbers.  

Television’s wholesale embrace also led to the adoption of 24-hour programming. Prior to 24-hour programming, in the late evening, the networks would basically call it a night, end their programming for the day, and broadcast a ‘test card’ sometimes referred to as a ‘test pattern.’

TV Programming Once was Only 7 Broadcast Stations and Ended Late Evening.  

 

Today We Have Hundreds of Channels and 24 x 7 Programming.

The bedroom is becoming a theatre.  Once you recognize this…the move to Kangapoda becomes clear! 

Today’s bed is the locus of vast amounts of audio visual entertainment and e-commerce in ways that were unimaginable in 1950.We now are entertained by a programming smorgasbord of movies, sports, infomercials, re-runs, re-caps, cooking shows, reality TV, and endless other options that encourage us to lie under the covers in a viewing position.
