It’s all the rage these days. Everywhere you look you are likely to find someone streaming a TV show. Because for years watching television has been one of the easiest and most entertaining things a person can do, you turn the television on and then there’s entertainment right at your fingertips. You don’t have to plan around the weather like one would do when you wanted to throw an outdoor barbecue or take a long hike up to the waterfall. Instead, you can curl up in a ball and watch the latest episode of whatever hit show is on now.
But within the last few years, TV shows have taken another step towards being even more convenient. When shows first started airing, you had to wait for them to air at their scheduled time. This was nice, for a while. But say you ended up missing a flight and are stuck a thousand miles from home, or your electricity is out and your TV won’t turn on? You missed the latest episode and have to either hope that there is a re-run before next week, or you’re behind and get confused when you watch it next week.
Since most of the community has access to either a computer, smartphone or tablet, you can now watch whatever show you want from those devices. No more being weeks behind because you’ve been stuck on the late shift for the past month. Instead, you can turn your phone on your streaming app and watch the latest episode while you’re combing your hair. Or, if it suits your fancy, watch it in the tub. You’re killing two birds with one stone, getting caught up on all the laughs and drama while getting ready for your 12 hour shift in the deli.
Streaming TV has taken a few steps forward in recent years. You can stop and go whenever you please, rewind it to watch that cute moment between those two characters that you’ve been dying to see get together since they first met back in season one. And, to top that all off, not only can you watch weekly episodes, but several sites and apps have started putting up seasons at a time of the original content. Now, you can enjoy an entire day of staying indoors and binge watching the last 5 seasons of your favorite reality show with your best streaming device. To put it simply, streaming is quickly taking the cake in the best way to watch any sort of television.
