I still remember the first movie that I caught at the cinema was ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ in the 90s. This is no surprise but what would probably surprise you is that the whole movie was actually Chinese-dubbed. It’s not something we see anymore these days in the cinema but it was very popular in the 80s/90s where many of the movie-goers were still Chinese-educated. I’m not kidding you, Leonardo’s Chinese name was 蓝天使 and Raphael’s was 红豆冰. LOL.
Ever since then, I’ve became a huge movie fan. I love the concept of spending a good 2 hours “becoming someone else”. During this short period of time, I do not need to think about work, whether I have packed my bags for tomorrow’s trip, how many other articles or photos I’ve to edit and complete by tonight. I just become someone else. I become the tiny little guy who needs to return a piece of important jewellery to a volcano, I become the guy who wears an overpriced black suit and fight aliens, or I can even become the guy who is sitting opposite Meg Ryan in the diner where she showcases her epic acting skill in public. (Everyone remembers that scene, comon.)
I love to watch movies but sadly after the arrival of this little one, it’s really not easy for us to hit the cinemas and catch the latest movies anymore. You have no idea how many good movies I’ve missed these days. (No lah, not 50 Shades Darker. I’m really not into that movie. REALLY!)
Daddy’s not blaming you okay? It’s just the truth that you have since ruined my cinema experience. LOL
Good news. I was recently introduced to this new movie streaming service - www.catchplay.com or CATCHPLAY app from App Store or Google Play.
No time to hit the cinemas? No problem! CATCHPLAY NOW!
Not only does CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND have a huge library of shows, they also have lots of the latest blockbuster movies too! One of their newest movies they have is Doctor Strange - and I’m glad to catch it in the comforts of my home after missing it on the big screen. I mean I did try to search other sites online screening this movie in HD quality but my efforts were to no avail until I found CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND. Yes, their movies are in HD!
Damn happy lor!
I like CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND’s price plans. Most of the sites run only on a subscription model. In order to get the best value out of it, it would means that you have to watch as many shows as possible. As much as I would love to do that, I would say that it ain’t exactly a feasible option at this stage of my life.
CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND offers 3 different payment models.
You can join as MOVIE FANS for free (no need credit card info to register; this membership will not expire): And you can watch 1 free movie per month from the 'On The House' section OR you can join as MOVIE LOVERS at $12.90 per month (can cancel anytime), and you can also rent any 1 movie you like PLUS unlimited movies from 'Movie Lovers Unlimited' section. Last but not least, probably the best option for me, which is the ‘Single Rental’. It is priced at either $6 or $3.50 per movie. It’s wayyyy cheaper than hitting the cinemas for sure and you can actually watch it super comfortably. By that, I mean like in your boxers and on your sofa.
TADA!!! Once payment is done, you will get to enjoy your movie immediately. I might not be able to stop time like Doctor Strange but CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND does allow me to stop the movie and continue it later even from another device.
I mean, you know how sometimes you are in the middle of a movie and you suddenly need to rush out or do something else? (No lah, I don’t mean a booty call) Not only can you watch the movie on your computer, you can watch it on your phone too. All you have to do is to download the CATCHPLAY app from the App Store or Google Play.
Then just log in to your account and the movie continues from where you stop. You don’t need the Ancient One to teach you such a trick. You just need CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND. Lol
I’m really impressed by this. It’s really something for a person like me who is always on the go. I can now watch the same show on multiple platforms, pause it anytime and continue from where I last left it. So SIMPLE!
Oh oh oh, and if you have AppleTV, you can actually just airplay it to your TV from your phone too!
Sounds exciting right? So before you leave my blog (boohoohoo) and check out CATCHPLAY ON DEMAND, Mr.Smith has a good deal for you too! You know, because you guys are the coolest. You guys are the coolest because you read my blog lah.
