Regular activities like TV viewing and even watching movies have changed very rapidly in the last couple of years, thanks to technology, specifically the Internet. More and more people are skipping the habit of coming home at a particular time each day to catch their favorite TV shows—why hurry or wait, when you can binge-watch all of them in one go, whenever and wherever it’s convenient to you? And with movie tickets getting more expensive, it’s now more practical to just watch movies in the comfort of one’s home or anywhere, really, even while stuck in traffic. Thanks to technology, we can now do all that on our mobile devices without risking piracy or even lugging around DVDs or portable TVs.
Online video content selections are growing so quickly that families can now spend an entire weekend just watching the latest movies, TV shows, and viral clips. Of course, it’s still best to watch these on a larger screen, AKA a TV. And this is exactly what we experienced at the Globe at Home #StreamFest, a weekend of free movies, snacks, and loads of fun activities held at Bonifacio High Street last July 7 and 8, and which is ongoing at UP Town Center in Quezon City today, July 9.
Families and barkadas enjoyed free screenings of popular Netflix titles like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Designated Survivor, as well as movies like The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 courtesy of HOOQ, among other fun activities.
I attended #StreamFest last Friday at Bonifacio High Street, where they kicked off the streaming with The Amazing Spider-Man 1.
