    "While I love streaming my TV and movies, I found STARZ to be disappointing. After a day or two, I ran out of interesting things to watch. It feels like they depend too much on the original programing, but most of it was outside my usual interests. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the first-ever form of wireless communication utilized the concept of radio signals? The person responsible for this technological invention was Guglielmo Marconi. Early broadcasts communicated weather patterns using Morse Code in 1916. Over the years, the technology gained newer and more sophisticated user-interfaces. Television was next to use this technology but did not take off at first. This was due to price and implementation issue with broadcasting companies. After WWII, television set prices went down and more broadcasting companies appeared. By the 1960s, families that owned Television sets accounted for 92% in the US. The streaming text became available for foreign content by enabling closed captioning. With this, you are able to get simplified English translations of what you are watching.

The Internet arrived in the early 1990s, bringing with it the ability to consume media. From music to videos, and photos, these things could now be accessible by anyone from anywhere. YouTube was one of the first companies that took full advantage of the power of the Internet. It helped revolutionize streaming and the potential that it had. It would see significant growth and increased adoption rate in the following years. Netflix and Spotify soon followed suit by offering music and movie streaming services. The ubiquitous nature of smartphones and tablets only strengthen this particular notion. The notion of on-demand content, anytime, and anywhere.

    "If you like Anime content, and you don't mind constant advertising interrupting your enjoyment, then this might be just for you. The feedback from users suggests that this product is merely mediocre at best, and just another annoying platform for which advertisers can constantly ruin your experience. There are better products available for what you really want."
