Weekend Family Bonding with Globe Streamwatch Roku TV

Life with active teens can get really busy. Someone always has a meeting, school project, party, competition... the list can seem almost endless.

Sometimes it gets so crazy that one-on-one dates mean grocery shopping with me or the car ride going to swim training, but it’s moments like these that they remember! What this shows is that dating our kids doesn't have to be fancy or expensive. It just needs a child and a parent, spending time together and giving them our undivided attention. 

As a family, one of the ways we love to spend time together is when we watch our favorite shows during our movie nights, which happens every weekend, and then we discuss about what we watched after.

I have a recent discovery that is going to change our family's movie nights! I'm excited to share it all with you!

Globe At Home is giving our family even more ways to enjoy the latest in entertainment with the launch of its Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered™ device. The first Roku powered streaming stick in the Philippines, Globe Streamwatch lets us watch a variety of content across 100+ free channels in different categories including sports, lifestyle, travel and more.

Mommies like me who are not so techy, don't worry, I got you! I'll share with you what I learned about this new streaming technology so you can decide if this is something that you think your family will enjoy. If you do decide to get one, your teens will surely think you are the best mom ever!

What is streaming?
So streaming is similar to downloading a movie or video, but you start viewing and watching the file while it is downloading.

In a regular download, we make a copy of a large web file or a large software program, which takes us anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours to complete the download and then we can watch the working copy.

Streaming lets us watch what we want, the moment we want to. We don’t have to wait for a download to finish! Roku products bring the fun and convenience of streaming to our big-screen TV. The choice of what to watch and what to pay for is up to us. It's TV on our terms.

What is a Roku® streaming device?
Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered  is a streaming stick which enables you to watch movies, TV shows and much more over your home internet connection straight to your TV. It is a portable device, allowing consumers to use it on different TVs in the home, in a friend’s home or even at a hotel.

Basically, it turns any regular TV into a Smart TV or any Smart TV into an even better TV when you plug it in because it is pre-packed with apps like Netflix, HOOQ, Disney and a whole lot more. You can't just purchase the Roku device anywhere as it is exclusively for Globe at Home customers.

It comes with a simple remote control with dedicated buttons for Netflix, Disney Channel Apps, YouTube, and HOOQ. From the channel store, users can choose from an additional 100 streaming channels to add to their personalized home screen.
On top of centralizing your subscriptions to HOOQ, NBA, Disney, TED Talks and Netflix, you can skim through the Roku Channel Store for hundreds of extra channels you can add to your lineup
