As the colder weather sets in, and it certainly has over the last few weeks, it’s human nature to want to hibernate. Forced hibernation due to new restrictions, or not, binge watching is always a good idea. In fact, if it weren’t for our televisions most of us would have probably given up on everything over the last year and a half.
Jaco Joubert, SKYWORTH brand manager concurs. “Whether we were watching edge of your seat thrillers and hard-hitting documentaries or were getting cosy on the couch with blast from the past TV shows, for many of us the small screen has been our constant, reliable companion through these tough times.”
Luckily, TV series aren’t going anywhere, and neither are TVs, in fact they’re just getting better. Cream of the crop is SKYWORTH’s SUC9300 Pro. With features like the below your binge-watching experience will be taken to the next level:
Hands-free Voice Control – Far-field voice control up to five metres away. Wake your TV up from standby mode using only your voice. 180-degree omnidirectional voice recognition responds to every command and with a 97% recognition rate your TV will clearly recognise and understand your commands.
Castplay and Chromecast built-in – One button can cast games, movies, photos and more, from your mobile device. Compatible with both Android and iOS systems.
So, turn the heat up, make sure the snack cupboard is stocked and get binging with Joubert’s top winter picks:
The Flight Attendant – Part thriller and part black comedy, the dramedy follows Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco), the flight attendant, as she makes countless terrible decisions. First, she goes out with a handsome businessman from her flight, then she flees that man’s hotel bedroom following his murder. The Flight Attendant unfolds as Cassie desperately tries to figure out what happened.
Friends – With M-Net having just announced the much-anticipated Friends Reunion will be aired on Sunday 30 May, as well as available on SHOWMAX from the following day (queue all our 90s and early 2000s fantasies come to life) there’s no better time than now to watch reruns of this favourite classic right from episode one on Netflix.
Formula 1 Drive to Survive – A gripping documentary series giving a behind-the-scenes look at the drivers and races of the Formula One World Championship.
The Bold Type – The Bold Type follows the day-to-day adventures of three millennial New Yorkers and best friends who work together at the fictional fashion magazine Scarlet. From Ugly Betty to The Devil Wears Prada, the New York fashion magazine and media industry has proven a fine playing field for high-stakes drama and fantastic wardrobes. The show dives right in and still finds ways to make this well-documented world newly exciting.
The Underground Railroad – A magical reimagining of the stories of enslaved people who fled the Antebellum South, and a journey across space and time.
Mare of Easttown – Kate Winslet is Mare Sheehan, a detective in small-town Pennsylvania on the tail of a murderer, whose own life starts falling to pieces around her.
Halston – A deep dive into the grand, extravagant life that the eponymous fashion designer led. It captures the essence of Studio 54 days and an era of fashion superstardom that serves as much as a cautionary tale as it does a life-to-screen narrative. Starring Ewan McGregor.
Young Rock – Follow Dwayne Johnson’s childhood into young adulthood as we learn how Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson became one of the most well-known celebrities in the world today. The series uses three different eras of Dwayne’s life to tell its story, and Dwayne himself narrates the show.
Nine Perfect Strangers – The producers behind Big Little Lies and The Undoing have adapted Liane Moriarty’s book for the silver screen. Nicole Kidman, Regina Hall, Melissa McCarthy, Samara Weaving, Michael Shannon and other big names are the strangers who may prove to be less than perfect.
