Streaming habits

I used to be a quality connoisseur, when it came to movies. Back in 2002, when VCD was the bomb, I did not give in to camera copies. I would wait diligently for the best version to pop up. When things were in abundance around 2010 with torrents, still I was selective. I needed the best quality ones. I would go to movie theatres even when I could not afford, because I wanted the best quality. Whenever I am out of the country, I visit a IMAX theatre where available. I do not have TV at home for more than 10 years now. I do not intend to buy one in future.

End of 2017, here I am watching movies and TV series on Netflix (mostly) and iflix.

Netflix original TV series content is so good and addictive. I am more in to TV series than movies now. TV series have more time and space to detail out a story in depth. I never thought I would watch TV series on a ipad or a small screen mobile phone, yet I do now. Because I am struggling for time. I do not have time to be in-front of a TV. But I do have unproductive time chunks wasted in traffic. Also in between meetings, waiting in a cafe. It is good to catch up on to a 15 mts of TV time on my mobile. This has replaced my novel reading. I do not know if it is a good thing. But I do know I am looking forward to some good TV content.

Good quality story telling in high definition, easy access, value for money monthly subscription models, tailored suggestions based on my viewing history are all shifting me to digital streaming entertainment. It’s so exciting. It’s my duty to balance it out. Because one can easily get addicted.
