Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while the traditional dinner date at a fancy restaurant is always a delightful option, there’s something intimate and special about spending time in the comfort of your home. This year, consider celebrating with a unique and personalised touch by planning a memorable date night in. “One fantastic way to do this is by embracing the world of entertainment through your television,” says Senior Sales Manager for premium television brand SKYWORTH, John Goosen. Below, he explores how to make the most of your indoor celebration by enjoying movies and series on your television, taking advantage of its streaming platforms.
Setting the mood – Creating the perfect ambience is key to a successful date night in. Begin by dimming the lights, lighting some candles, and setting up a comfortable viewing area with plush blankets and pillows. Add a touch of romance by scattering some rose petals or arranging some fresh flowers. Creating a cosy and inviting space sets the stage for an enjoyable evening.
Choosing the right content – Once the mood is set, it’s time to choose the perfect content for your Valentine’s Day date night. Discuss your favourite genres and explore the vast array of movies and series available on your SKYWORTH TV’s streaming platforms. Google has refined the Android TV experience with a greater emphasis on personalised content and tailored recommendations built around your viewing habits and interests. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic romantic film, a heartwarming series, or an exciting new release, the options are endless.
Interacting with your TV – Launched last year, SKYWORTH’s SUF958P, the largest 4K QLED Google TV in South Africa, boasts an incredible 100″ infinite screen that promises an unparalleled viewing experience, plus other advanced features. Take advantage of the hands-free voice command to search for specific genres, movies, or series without lifting a finger. Simply say, “Hey Google, find romantic comedies,” and let the magic happen. This adds an interactive element to your date night and ensures a seamless content discovery process.
Exploring streaming platforms – Dive into the wide array of streaming platforms available. Whether it’s Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Showmax or Disney+, each platform offers a unique selection of content. Explore hidden gems, indulge in binge-worthy series, or discover classic films you both haven’t seen in a while. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zones and try something new together.
Snack time – No movie night is complete without delicious snacks. Prepare a spread of your favourite treats, from popcorn and sweets to a charcuterie board with cheeses and fruits. Pair your snacks with a favourite beverage, and you’ll have the perfect accompaniment to your movie or series marathon.
