Binge watching, or watching nonstop episodes of a show, has become a popular way to enjoy television. If you are a serial binge watcher, it often happens that every time you sit down to watch a series you have been dying to see, you only get two episodes before some problem arises. Binge watching isn’t for the faint-hearted, but if you want to survive that eight-season- long series, there are a lot of things you need. Here is a list of 5 things you need to get the best binge-watching experience ever:





1. Smart TV



Invest in a big screen TV and see how your binge-watching experience will become better than ever. A smart TV is great for binge-watching as it offers internet connectivity. It enables you to access both cable as well as streaming services through your television. Most smart TV sets come with integrated search features, letting you search through all your entertainment options, including video on demand, cable, streaming video services, and also various applications. You can look for popular rating, title genre and even the latest additions.



Another significant advantage of binge-watching on TV is related to health. While watching TV for extended period, the eye muscles don’t have to focus as hard as compared to when viewing on a tablet or laptop. When an object, like laptop or tablet is close to the eyes then you are required to ‘accommodate’ to keep it in focus. The TV screens are usually further away, so eye strain and less blinking rates are perhaps less of an issue.



2. Recliner



A recliner chair not only improves TV watching experience but also comes with a lot of health benefits. It is one fantastic piece of furniture that immediately gives a sense of relaxation. Recliner chairs are enormously comfortable and are available in a wide variety of designs. They also come furnished with various functions and features that can prove to be extremely helpful for you. The reason you should avoid watching TV in bed is that it can lead to insomnia.



3. Good Wi-Fi Plans & Subscription to Value Added Services



So, you have finally bought that 4K smart TV, however, it’s of no use if you can’t stream 4K videos on it! Streaming 4K videos to your smart TV will require internet speed of at least 40mb/s, hence the need of an ISP that supports super-fast speeds. However, this also varies depending on the service you are using to binge- watch.



Various top fibre optic broadband plans bring unlimited entertainment to you by offering a free subscription to numerous video streaming services. Some of the best internet service providers like ACT Fibernet offer customers a complimentary subscription to video streaming services. Some of the best value added and streaming service provided by the internet providers in Vijayawada include ALTBalaji, HOOQ, YuppTV, Fastfilmz.



4. Home Theatre



If you’re a movie freak, sports fan or video gaming lover, investing in a home theatre system can give the feel of being in a movie theatre without having to go out of your house. You can watch your favourite movie without the hassle of waiting in queues to buy tickets or having to sit in a theatre full of people. To have an enjoyable and comfortable binge-watching experience, your home theatre can work wonders. It is ideal for those weekends of binge-watching your new favourite TV show or even playing that video game you pre-ordered.



5. Good Speakers



Adding a good quality speaker system to your smart TV is a fantastic way to get engaging sound. Speaker requires relatively less wiring and are simple to use. Most speakers come with built-in feature amplification and require just a single cable to connect to the TV. Speakers add on to your binge-watching experience quite effectively. Moreover, it’s not healthy to use headphones for long periods.



Binge-watching has become a point of pride these days. People like to brag about extended viewing. The perfect show grabs your attention and makes it hard to resist watching back-to- back episodes. To get a smooth binge-watching experience, merely follow the tips mentioned above.
