10 things you don’t know about the Television

Television or TV is one technology that has remained steadfast in this ever-changing time.

Screens have come in all forms and sizes and new platforms have come out as other options for entertainment, education, news, and advertising. For example, both local and foreign series can now be accessed through video on demand programs like Netflix, iFlix, and HOOQ. There are also free streaming sites online where people can watch videos aside from the popular Youtube.

In the midst of these innovations 96.6 percent of Filipinos are still tune in to their televisions daily in 2016, according to TV audience measurement provider Kantar Media. While digital media and improving internet access has made it easier and more accessible for audiences to stream shows online, the survey also revealed that we spend longer durations--particularly 3.7 hours in average--watching our favorite programs on TV.

Creating moments, strengthening bonds

For some, watching television might be a simple habit. But for others, it is a chance to break free and relax from their hectic lifestyles or strengthen bonds with people they share the experience with. It can also be a form of a healthy escape, too, where one can learn about new things and explore other cultures in the comfort of their homes.

These are just some of the things Devant feels passionate for. The renowned television provider advocates to create moments with its 7:30PM TV Get Together (G2G) campaign which encourages everyone to spend time with their friends and family by bonding over their favorite shows.

In line with their aim to bring people together, Devant has teamed up with Marco Polo Ortigas and Craig Lines for an exclusive screening of the film The Owner” last August 8. The event, featured stunning visuals using Devant’s lineup of Ultra HD televisions and surround sound system, proved that a simple hobby like sharing a movie can be made more meaningful and memorable with other people.

Turning hobbies to meaningful experiences

The Owner” is a film that follows the journey of a lost backpack around the world. The international feature film showcases the many mysteries of the bag’s travels, while showing the intersecting lives of the fascinating characters it got in touch with throughout the story. “The Owner” is a true masterpiece with a story that spans five continents collaborated on by a whopping number of 25 filmmakers.

The movie is a perfect example of a work of art that gives TV-watching a deeper meaning. It encourages people to think and consider, and it also gives everyone the chance to be open to things that could enrich their lives and mindsets through their TV experience.
