Best Sources Of Online Entertainment
If you go back far enough there was a time when people had nothing but their imagination for entertainment. Then came storytelling and books, followed by motion pictures and then television and even video games. Now we live in a world where all the entertainment we could ever dream of is online and right at our fingertips. Online entertainment has become so deeply embedded into our lives that we may wonder how we ever coped without it. With that in mind here are some of the best online sources of entertainment.
Generally, the days of weekly episodic television is all but dead. We’ve become a nation of binge watchers, happily consuming numerous episodes, sometimes a whole series in a weekend and still be hungry for more. Many production companies embrace this now by uploading their full series to websites like Netflix all at once because they know that’s the way people prefer to watch their favourite programmes. Woody Allen has directed over 40 films (and still counting) and even he has branched out into the TV game with his ‘Crisis In Six Scenes’ released on Amazon Prime in one go. Netflix even picked up the final season of Breaking Bad after AMC no longer wanted it.
Websites and smartphone apps make it easier than ever before to play our favourite casino games. While there numerous advantages and disadvantages to playing online poker in comparison to live poker, one of the biggest perks is being able to play whenever and wherever we want. This means you can play a few hands on the bus ride into work, while sat in a doctors waiting room or even curled up in bed of an evening. There’s the opportunity to win big cash prizes without ever leaving your house, now that sounds like a dream opportunity.
Music is one of the most subjective things in the world and we all have our own unique tastes in the genres and artists we prefer. Spotify is like being in control of your own radio station as you get to decide the songs you want to hear, whenever you want to hear them. It even has offline capabilities so you can put together your own playlist and listen to it when you’re on the go or driving somewhere. Available for free, with adverts, or ad free for a modest subscription of £9.99 a month, there isn’t a reason not to get Spotify.
There are a number of ways to enjoy our favourite sports online, which becomes especially useful if we’re on the go. There is no need to miss a second of any game now live apps that provide live alerts from the game, and it’s even possible to stream games straight to your mobile device. Furthermore, fantasy sports have become a popular part of modern sports. Many fantasy sports providers also supply an app so we can view the performance of our team at any time, switching players in and out, maintaining our place in the league table so we can claim bragging rights over our friends.
