April 12, 2020 0 By Pitchanikarn Chooleewan

As a self-quarantine and Songkran holiday which is Thai New Year’s national holiday -the biggest festival for Thai and international people. However, we cannot go out to join and have fun in this year due to Covid-19. Now, it is time to take better care of yourself –getting some rest, being a slow life, and spending time with your family. Having a cozy bed and pillow, turning on an air conditioner, lying down on the bed, and watching the best movie or series from streaming apps, It is awesome, right?

Moreover, the Office of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission(NBTC) lays down the measures for broadband speed upgrade 100 Mbps per 1 household for 30 days. Having many streaming services launch a special deal. That is nice !  How come we should not do this? Let’s have a blast.😄

Here, 4 sites and apps that is super fantastic and easy-to-use. There are many streaming contents such as movies, series, shows, cartoon, and sports across the world.

      1. Netflix

  • Starting price : THB 99
  • Simultaneous streams : 1-4

Now, I am pretty sure that no one has not known “Netflix” because it is the best streaming service in this century, Netflix provides unlimited streaming of movies, TV shows, TV series, and comedy specials from the both Asian and Western.

Netflix also creates its own original programming or content across 190 countries such as Love is Blind, Glow, Black Mirror, Sex education, Stranger Things. From Asia, Kingdom and Busted from Korea, the stranded from Thailand etc. Some famous content is only available on Netflix thanks to having many partnerships. Thereby, Netflix becomes a gem library of high quality shows and movies which is the most I always sign in.

Where Can I watch?

You can watch instantly on the web at Netflix.com from your personal computer or any internet-connected device which offers the Netflix app, including smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, streaming media players and game consoles.

Viu is the second app which I use the most. Viu is a Hong Kong based over-the-top(OTT) video streaming provider from PCCW Media. There are the both subscriptions (Viu premium) and advertising(Freemium). Viu delivers content such as shows, movies and series from Asia’s top content providers with local language and English subtitles.

Viu especially contracts with well-known Korean TV programs from leading Korean channels such as SBS, KBS, MBC, and JTBC. Programs from CJ E&M, tvN, OCN, and Mnet are reserved for Viu Premium only.

The good news, If you would not to pay money, you can watch some shows or series for free but some of those have an advertisement on condition it has ad-supported freemium model.

The strongest point, Viu offers many Korean variety shows. Furthermore, there are Parasite(Uncut) –an Oscars winner 2020 – and a lot of brilliant Korean movies which are not available on Netflix. Anyway, all of them are for a premium subscription.

Cons: Optimized interface is not smooth when you want to rewind 10 seconds in a video. It is a little bit annoyance for me. Uploading content is slower than illegal website . However, Viu has more high quality Full HD. If you are a big fan of Korean production, it is worth investment, isn’t it?
