So far, this is one of my favorite things to do when I got nothing to do. Quite ironic, right? But I’ll share my binge watching essentials. 😊
Binge Watching Essentials
This generation’s hobbies includes getting into arts and crafts, doing activities that are good for life and the newest one, binge watching! But, first thing’s first. What is really binge watching?
What is binge watching?
It is the act of watching a certain series without stopping. Well, maybe just a few pauses when you need to pee. Another look to it would be, saving episodes of an on-going series just to watch it during a holiday or a break. In short, it could be known as marathon watching.
How do you binge watch?
It’s simple, really. Here are some ways on doing it:
- Downloading the whole season after its season finale. It may also be applicable to films (e.g. Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars)
- Downloading every episode during its air date but you’ll watch it in one day (either holiday or break).
- Waiting for the whole season to be up on a streaming site/app.
So to share my binge watch essentials, I’ve listed down some items that may also be essential to your binge watching!
My Binge Watching Essentials
You need a thing where you could watch the episodes. It may be in the form of a tablet, phone or even a laptop. I use my laptop and my tablet for my series. Most of the time, I watch using my laptop because I download the episodes especially if it’s an on-going series.
Snacks and Drinks
Who doesn’t love snacks and drinks while watching? Most of the time, I lounge around when I watch so I want it to be one of the most comfortable. My fave snacks would include chocolates, chips and sometimes, kimbap! My fave drinks while watching would be hot/iced chocolate, orange/mango juice or just simply water.
For the kimbap, I am such a picky eater so I only eat the ones made by my friend, Hannah. It’s somewhat made to order so we book a Grab (express) if it’s delivery time. Hers are homemade so the flavor is really savory and yummy!
Since I download apps from on-going series, I search the internet for torrents. It may be for film or movies. Of course, there’s Pirate Bay and then EZTV. But to download the files, I use uTorrent.
But, if it can’t be downloaded or there’s no smaller file with high quality, I resort to streaming.
When the episodes are not yet ready for download, I stream. I search for sites which have the latest episodes. For Asian drama, it’s quite challenging to look so when I saw iFlix, I was glorious about it! What made me love it more is that you can enjoy 30 days for free! You’ll only need a Facebook account for you to enjoy their service.
What made me love it more is that you can enjoy 30 days for free! You’ll only need to register or sign up on their site to avail of their service. Not only that but also of what they have! They have a variety of genre of films and series to choose from. Since I have been lazy to download films, I just stream through their app.
What about iFlix?
- You can access up to five (5) devices at once. Whether you’re on your mobile or sharing it on the laptop and tablet, you can stream all at once!
- If you’re in a hurry and do not have enough time to buffer, you can always download the episode. Before download starts, you’ll be asked if which quality would you like.
- Sharing is caring because, with iFlix, you can share your subscription with family or friends and watch on two devices at a time.
- 30 days free when you sign up with them. If your 30 days are over then, you can pay for the subscription for only a low price. I guess it’s Php 129/month. (USD 1 = Php 50, roughly)
My iFlix Experience
Since it is so hard to look for copies of local indie films, I was only able to watch some because someone gave me a copy and it was years after the original year of the film. From foreign series like Arrow, The Flash, Grimm and Mr. Robot to films like Titanic and even iconic series like FRIENDS and HIMYM, it’s there! What makes me love them more is that they have local shows from two of the biggest networks in the Philippines! They have those Kapamilya shows and Kapuso shows that have long ended. Not only to local tv series but to local films as well. Let’s not forget about Philippine independent films as well! Some are there on iFlix.
Currently, Encantadia 2016 is being aired on iFlix too. It’s just that it will be up 24 hours after the air date. So, even if you’re late for one day, as long as you can watch it in high quality then it’s a go for me! Oh and even the Encantadia 2005 is there also.
