I am looking forward to Netflix’s live action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, a retelling of the beloved classic with none of the words, voice acting or animation that made the original so charming.

Never underestimate the healing power of a good cry. Life has a way of piling upon us, with one thing after another going wrong. Busy, stressful days rarely offer us an opportunity to sit down and express our feelings. But every once in a while, we really need to – as I tell my kids […]

Birdbox Streaming

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 10/04/2020 - 6:51pm in

Streaming services are ten-a-penny these days. Amazon Prime, Netflix, DisneyPlus, etc... are a great diversion in these times of social isolation. But no doubt, the intensity with which folk are using them will result in a lot of us realising there's actually not much of true interest on these sites - a handful of premiere TV shows, some blockbuster movies you've seen at the cinema already and a selection of really obscure items that you only find by accident due to the nature of the site's bizarre interpretation of your viewing habits. 

Britbox launched last year and on Boxing Day gave access to every available classic Doctor Who episode ever (except for the ones it didn't). Britbox is a UK initiative created by the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 to provide access to their back catalogues in lieu of the US-based streaming services who tend to promote their own material. Admittedly, the Doctor Who material is the only true archive material on the site at the moment - it's mostly recent stuff of the likes that digital channels like GOLD, ITV3, More4, etc... already screen ad nauseum. But we are promised more as the service become established. For archive material, you can do no worse than seek out the "From The Archives" section on the BBC iPlayer. It features a variety of elderly BBC programmes including episodes of Panorama, Man Alive, a handful of black and white dramas, odd episodes of Bob's Full House and Big Break together with Quatermass and the Pit - complete and fully restored. 

With that all in mind, I started thinking about a streaming service myself. I called it Birdbox (see what I did there?). And begin tweeting highlights of its odd programming in a similar vein to how DisneyPlus promoted its content on Twitter. 

Here are those said highlights... (Click images to enlarge)














You can't subscribe to Birdbox (thankfully given some of its content) but you can buy me a coffee via my Ko-fi account - just to show how much you enjoyed reading this post. If you didn't, try another post (although knowing you, you probably won't find that one funny either...)
