How SVOD is Changing Our Lives for the better


Confused about Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD)? I’ve got you covered with my handy SVOD guide.

Let’s start with the basics: SVOD is a new, easy way to watch TV and movies on your compatible device including smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs – just BYO internet, data and device! For a low monthly fee you are given access to a library of awesome TV and Movies without ads for you to stream at home (or watch on the go!).

With thousands of hours of movies and TV available whenever you want, services like recently launched Starz Play  will change how we access entertainment forever. Here are just a few ways how:

Entertainment when you want it.

The best thing about streaming services is that you can watch what you want, when you want and for as long as you want 24 hours a day. From the latest blockbusters and top classic films, to your favourite Series ,  kids programming – it all sits in one place and (more importantly) for a single monthly fee. As a service like Starz Play is accessible via your smartphone, tablet, computer or television (using Humax’s H1 Box ), it’s around wherever you are: You could catch up on Power whilst you wait for your morning coffee, Humans on your Uni study break or the Movie UP at home with the kids – easy!

For the Love of Spoilers!

SVOD services make it easier than ever to ‘Binge-Watch’ your way through an entire season of television, with a huge library of full seasons of your favourite shows completely uninterrupted by ad-breaks.

It also gives you access to loads of new TV shows fast-tracked from the US. We all have that friend or co-worker who can’t wait to spoil the latest episode of your favourite show, and it’s almost impossible to avoid spoilers on social media – why wait when you can catch it whenever and wherever you want!

Share the love.

With Starz Play  you can register 5 devices on the same account, with changes to those devices permitted whenever you like. And with the ability to view on two different devices at once, everyone in the house can watch what they want.

You can even set up individual profiles for watch playlists, and Starz ’s Parental control function  makes it easy to set up a profile restricted by classification so your kids don’t watch anything you don’t want them to see.

An evolution in entertainment.

SVOD is not only changing the way we watch entertainment, it’s changing the way entertainment is created full stop. The rise of ‘binge-watch’ TV means writers are no longer pressured to extend storylines, leading to some of the finest television shows in history.

We dare you to watch a single episode of Power , Black Sails or Penny Dreadul  without hanging around for another – it’s not as easy as it sounds…

Save your cash for popcorn.

Above all, SVOD pricing is highly competitive making it a really affordable entertainment option. For one monthly fee you are given access to thousands of hours’ of some of the hottest movies, TV series & kids content  in a constantly updated library. Think about it, with Starz Play  at $12.99  a month you can have all that entertainment for about the same price as lunch!
