“For many months my wife and I have enjoyed your wonderful, and amazing videos. We watch them at the end of the evening prior to retiring to bed as a means of enabling us to relax in the arms of Morpheus. Thank you so much!”


‘Thank you for sharing this site. It’s inspirational and calming.”


“I have forwarded your information onto the Director of PR and Marketing at our hotel and have also expressed to her how much I LOVE your company. It’s on in our household quite a bit!”


“Hello people at ArmchairTourist. I love your channel. I am a hairdresser who works from home and I am always tuned in. In the winter it is easy to get depressed with the weather— and you help me through it a lot. Thank you for coming up with this idea, it has made a big difference with my mood.”


“I want to say I love your channel on Roku. I am a single mom of three, and I have never been able to take my children on a vacation, so we really appreciate your beautiful videos, and we watch them quite often. Thank you!”


“I watch your site all the time. I find it very relaxing and interesting. Thank you.”


“I’d like to say that the ArmchairTourist channel on Roku is really cool.  It’s pretty neat to look in on random places all over the world in beautiful HD.”


“Hey there, I wanted to ask if the videos shown on the Roku ArmchairTourist Channel are live? Don’t laugh too hard! If they aren’t, I can tell. They seem really live or current. Thanks.”


“Thank you sooo very much for all the video art you put up on television. Sometimes I have it on pretty much all day when I’m home. I enjoy it whether I sit down to view it, or glancing at it as I’m about the house. Regards.”


“We love to relax watching this beautiful channel. Thank you for the great images!”


“My Mother is 80 and loves your channel with all the fantastic videos.Thanks for creating such enjoyable and interesting programs. It’s our default station when we’re not watching other programs. Best regards.”


“Guess what I am watching right now on my 65″ big screen T.V.?  Of course, one of your videos on your ArmchairTourist channel! Have a wonderful day in the snow!”


“I have been watching the Frame TV channel and I love it! It’s dangerously addictive. I was just wondering if you accept viewer submissions or if there was anyway that I could get involved with anything really!”

  1. I watch your videos on my tv…channel 165. I love your videos but I would love to know where each scene is filmed as I am watching. I find it frustrating to appreciate and enjoy the scenery and not knowing where it is! I really don’t want to guess the city…just tell us please.

    • Hi Collette– Sorry you don’t want to guess. Having people visit the website is the only way the service makes money. If the answers were just on the screen, the service couldn’t survive. Sorry about that.

  2. I Love watching this program…however; for some that don’t have a computer handy, it would be really nice just to see the name of the place on the tv screen on every picture etc. Thanks.

    • Hi Scharie– then you wouldn’t visit my website! I know it isn’t satisfactory, but ads on this website help make it possible to deliver these videos to you. Hope you understand.

  3. Very much enjoy watching your channel and have for quite along time, except for the type of music you now play. The earlier music was much more easy listening.

  4. We love The Frame. Better than most program channels.
    Just one question. And please, it is not a gripe! When we enter a number to identify a scene, why are we directed to another link, instead of directly to the scene? We have already guessed.

  5. Love Armchair Tourist but find the length of each video much too long! Please consider shortening them- it’s fun to watch and guess, but shorter please?? 🙂

    • Hi Julie– That’s a tough one. I think most people are basically happy with the length of the videos we have now. The videos aren’t expected to go quickly one after another. We’re happy that people just absorb them slowly. Thank you for watching though!

  6. Just wanted to say that we love your channel and as a photographer myself, I like to have it on in the background as I’m editing or as our default when our favourite shows aren’t on. Whomever came up with Armchair Tourist is a genius!

  7. We watch your show a lot. It is so nice to recognize the places we have been. Wish that it would name some places. Thank you for this channel.

  8. Videos are beautiful but they’re way too long. 2 1/2 minutes plus? So annoying I started to time them. 30 seconds to 1 minute tops would be long enough.

    • Thanks for the feedback Elaine. The music (provided by Shaw) is only used when the natural sound on the videos isn’t ideal. We have been working hard to make sure all new video has pristine audio.

  9. Ruined your site with too much advertising. Will not visit your site in future. Too bad it used to be fun and educational. My kids will miss it.

    • Sorry about that Bob. Have experimented with the ads– and now, actually have less than before. If you and your son can come back, that would be great!

  10. I am *so* glad I discovered your channel, hidden in the upper echelons of my cable listings. It has become a much appreciated part of my morning ritual, with coffee and CBC newsworld, zen time before heading to an inevitably stress inducing schoolday. I love the BC and Northern centric segments the most. The far north is somewhere I have always longed to visit, and the vistas beamed to my livingroom are just so beautiful! (Have also enjoyed making a game of guessing the faraway locales with people!) Anyways, excellent idea for a channel I never knew was missing. Keep up the stellar programming work 🙂 I have a trove of stunning pictures from this beautiful province of BC, perhaps one day one will appear on Frame!

  11. I think video # 6320 is mis-labelled. Although the city is Victoria BC, this is not Oak Bay, but Ogden Point in James Bay and Ogden Point Lighthouse.

  12. I love watching the videos on the frame but there is one video in particular that I don’t see anymore and that is Mist of Time. Are you guys able to put that back on? I rarely see city lights and south east asia no more either.


    • Hi Mark– I know that Shaw is redoing all the galleries right now (mid-2017) and that the various galleries can come and go. Please keep watching and I believe it will show up again at some point.

  13. I really enjoy The Frame so relaxing when there’s nothing to watch on TV lol or just winding down for the night .
    Ive even seen where I live on it so thats pretty cool itself.

  14. Has anyone noticed that a lot of these broadcast pictures have much ghosting or echo effect? Seems like half of them do and half of them don’t. I have the modern 4 mpeg video box and 1080 P television. I also noticed this ghosting didn’t start till within the last year. Truly ruins the experience.

  15. I can’t figure out how to enter a guess or find out a location watching Frame on Shaw Sky TV.

  16. I have watched your 1/2 hour shows for many years, but my first favourite was one morning at 3:00 when I couldn’t sleep and I turned the frame on and the entire program was on Miami. I Had no idea what city this was and couldn’t check because I didn’t have a phone with data, so I wrote the numbers down and had to wait to get on the computer. I enjoy the parks Canada segments, and the tv stays on the frame quite a lot. I enjoy sharing with Facebook also. Thank you for bringing a touch of class to TV.

  17. I’ve watched the frame for quite a few years. I really enjoy the whole concept of this channel. My first favourite was at 3:00 am and for the first time ever I saw Miami. The photography was stunning. I share Armchair tourist on Facebook and am grateful for something good to watch. A little less fireplace at Christmas would be nice. Continue to share and I will do also. If I ever get out of Alberta and travel, your agency will be who I contact.

    • Hi Dan, we have a free Roku channel that you can run all day long– with the locations on-screen. Te same videos will be on our– soon to debut– Apple TV channel.

  18. I absolutely love this channel. I was wondering if maybe you could display more places without the music . It would be wonderful to hear the actual sights and sounds. Best channel yet !

  19. During the month of December, our cable channel takes ArmchairTourist off and puts on a video of a fireplace (running constantly!) I have complained to our cable provider in the past, and just did again! ArmchairTourist is the best . . . and would be so special to watch over the holidays – not a fireplace!!. Anyway – keep up the great work . . . just love ArmchairTourist!!
