One of the main formats of entertainment from the comfort of your own home has of course been the use of online streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Since their introduction onto the market back in 2013, these sorts of companies, especially Netflix have dominated how we now digest our television and are quite clearly the future of how we are going to watch television which many consumers already moving away from their expensive cable subscriptions and signing up with online streaming services. This is mainly been due to the fact that they offer serious value for money with one of the best selections of tv and films on their library compared to any other form of alternative.
Another form of entertainment that we have been seeing grow in popularity as a way of staying entertained during local lockdowns has been through the use of the gaming industry. Gaming, ever since it burst onto the scene nearly thirty years ago, has grown in popularity, and as we are now seeing a rapid rise the terms of the quality of technology, there is now a game out there for everyone – and of serious quality. We are finding that a trend of employees that are working from home, or digital nomads like these are using gaming as their prime format of entertainment during this past year and we expect this trend to grow even further in the future.
And finally, another form of entertainment that we are seeing growing in popularity in recent times has been by using your free time to exercise. Although this might not feel like a natural form of entertainment, it’s a great way to take up some of your time whilst bored at home for two main reasons – it’s free and it’s good for you! The benefits for exercising are virtually endless and if you are looking to improve your health and fitness, then physical exercise is a great way to stay entertained.
