Review: The Get CONNected channel offers a small selection of videos from Conn Jackson's Get CONNected website. Who is Conn Jackson, you ask? According to Wikipedia, he's a former investment banker who decided after the 9/11 attacks to "recognize people, places and activities making a difference."
Get CONNected currently has a dozen videos spread across the following categories:
- Celebrity Interviews - Celebrity, in this case, is in the eye of the beholder
- Fun Events - Coverage of a charity walk and playing ball with the military
- Pro vs. Conn - Conn Jackson competes with Women's World Cup soccer stars and with a female Olympic swimmer
- The Inside Scoop - "He Said, She Said" debates between Conn Jackson and comedian Tina Brown
These are all short videos, just a few minutes in length, typical of what you would find on the morning news/entertainment shows. If the topics interest you, add the channel and you can breeze through all of them in less than an hour. I don't know if new videos will be added in the future, or if the Roku channel is just a plug for the Get CONNected website.
