Quick Look: The tagline for ArmchairTourist is "Free HD Wallpaper for your Television." The channel is a single livestream, without audio, of different locations around the world. The video is composed of scenes where a camcorder was placed on a tripod and allowed to record the scene with no intervention. The following scene from Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, is an example of a video shown on this channel:
At some point during each scene there is a small notice on the screen directing you to enter a four-digit number on the ArmchairTourist website. Doing so will give you background information on the location being shown, along with a map pinpointing the location where the video was recorded.
This is a new version of the ArmchairTourist channel, replacing the original channel that allowed viewers to select from several different videos.
