Artkick Roku/Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Here's a giveaway where the prize isn't just an Amazon gift card but also a Roku Streaming Stick. I think this is the first time I've seen a Roku up for grabs. Enter through August 18th for your chance to win. Giveaway is open to US residents only.
Enter the Artkick Amazon Gift Card Giveaway. Ends 8/18.
Art is expensive and, in many cases, it can be difficult to find space in your home for it. After a while, you may become tired of looking at the same piece of art. You've already spent a fair amount of money on the piece so you don't want to get rid of it either. Luckily, because of modern technology, there is a new, free choice available to you.

Artkick is a free iOS and Android app that lets you utilize your TV to stream a variety of art or photos rather than just sitting there blank. Users can choose from over ¼ million images, separated by category for ease of browsing and selection. From van Gogh’s Starry Night, to NASA’s Hubble images of deep space, to Ansel Adams landscapes and modern contemporary photography - Artkick has a selection that appeals to every taste! Maybe you'd prefer to see your favorite family pictures scrolling across the television; Artkiick can do that too! The app can easily pull all of your favorite photos from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug and Dropbox.

So what do you need to do? To use Artkick follow these steps:
  • Download the Artkick mobile app from either app store. As I mentioned before, it's free! You can download the mobile app from the iOS App store or the Android Google Play store. Think of this as your intelligent remote control. Now, you need to link it to your TV.
  • Connect your TV to the internet in one of two ways:
    • (1) directly if you own one of the supported brands of SmartTVs (specifically Sharp, Sony, LG, and Samsung TVs). If you have a smart TV from one of the previously mentioned brands, you can download the Artkick TV app from your TV’s app store directly.
    • (2) indirectly if your TV is not among the currently supported SmartTV brands using a small external device that can easily connect your TV to your wireless network. Google’s Chromecast ($35) or Roku’s Streaming Stick ($50) are great options.
  • When you start the Artkick app on your tablet or phone for the first time, you must set up a user account to stream images to your TV. A valid email address is all that is required.
  • Once you've set up a user account, the app will walk you through the process of linking the TV to your phone or tablet. Again, think of your phone or tablet as your remote control.

It's as simple as that. Your otherwise blank TV is now the conversational piece at your next dinner party!

  1. I learned that I can create my own "playlist" of my favorite art. What I really like is that when casually browsing I can add more which gives me endless possibilities to suite my mood. I can have nature one day, floral the next, black and whites you name it.

  2. I learned that Artkick brings endless art streaming free to anyone with an internet connected TV. The images you love appear on your wall easily and instantly. Information and content on the art you view is visible on your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to learn more about art every day.

  3. I learned that it is a way to have different art work displayed as easily as changing channels on a TV. It is also a way to learn more about the art work.
