Button Blocker TV Remote Cover

TV viewers of all ages suffer from the frustration of being unable to navigate the 50 or more buttons on the remote control supplied by their pay-TV providers. Inadvertently pressing “wrong” buttons can cause your TV to become unresponsive and “unwatchable”. The screen turns blue and then reads “No Signal” or HDMI-3.When this happens, it is difficult (some find it impossible) to figure out the correct sequence of buttons you need to press to be able to return the TV to its prior setting. Viewers usually place a call to a family member or to their cable TV provider for help or simply decide to stop watching TV altogether.
