Don’t have an iOS device?
There is still time to head out to your local Apple Store or Authorized Retailer to pick up an iPhone or iPad. My favourite companion device for watching TV is the iPad Mini with Retina. It is the perfect size to keep at hand while you are watching the game to check a player’s stats, watch the last replay or share comments with friends.
