Now that I’ve quit the corporate world (at least for the time being), I have more control over my time and can better balance work with me-time. That being said, the past few months have been spent planning my wedding, catching up on my blog backlog, as well as reading, journaling, and binge-watching TV series.
And now, thanks to Netflix and its partnership with Globe Telecom, I have more quality shows to watch in the coming months, starting this January, with the premiere of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events on January 13, 2017—which also happens to be Friday the 13th. Season one of A Series of Unfortunate Events, consisting of eight, hour-long episodes, will be available on Netflix for streaming and download (on mobile devices and tablets).
The global internet television network has produced award-winning TV series and favorites like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things, and The Crown, and the streaming service continues their winning streak this 2017, starting with the release of the much-awaited series based on the international best-selling children’s novels by Daniel Handler. His original series spans 13 books, each very different from the previous one. Here, each episode spans half a novel, allowing viewers to delight in the details while still moving at a brisk, cinematic pace.
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans—Violet, Klaus, and Sunny—whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.
Leading the cast of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is award-winning actor, singer, television host, and one of my all-time favorite celebrities Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Hedwig and the Angry Inch—and hello, Doogie Howser, MD! I bet millennials don’t know that!). Besides playing Count Olaf, the villain fans love to hate, Harris is also a producer on the series.
Globe and its partnership with Netflix will provide Filipinos access to the streaming giant’s top quality entertainment via their mobile or broadband service. Those who subscribe to Globe Broadband’s Plan 1299 and up can enjoy six months of free Netflix, HOOQ, and the NBA League Pass. Customers can watch the dark and surreal A Series of Unfortunate Events anytime, with speeds of up to 10Mbps.
The action-packed show is best enjoyed on a large screen, and Globe Broadband is offering device add-ons such as smart TVs that customers can choose from. Streaming devices that allow you to enjoy mobile content on the big screen, such as Google Chromecast and Apple TV, are also available.
Globe is the first Philippine mobile and broadband to offer Netflix on its platform. Globe customers can subscribe to Netflix and enjoy its content anytime, anywhere, on nearly any internet-connected screen, while conveniently charging the monthly subscription to their Globe mobile or broadband accounts. Netflix is also available to customers on the new customized Broadband plans. Customers can now mix and match their preferred internet speeds that can be bundled with access to content and entertainment devices ranging from smart HD TVs, speakers, streaming devices, gaming consoles, and even security cameras.
By signing up for a Netflix account, members can watch today’s top original Netflix series and movie hits. Netflix adds new TV programs and films regularly. As members start using the service, Netflix’s algorithms will start to shape each member’s personal profile with recommendations based on what each member likes. Depending on the subscription plans, members can create up to four profiles within a single Netflix account. Profiles allow different members of the household to have their own personalized Netflix experience built around the films and TV programs they enjoy. There are also parental control settings to ensure a safe viewing experience for kids; this limits a child’s profiles to child-friendly titles.
