Super Cool Things To Do Online:
Stream Movies and Series
If you’re still watching scheduled television you are living a half-life. It’s time to embrace the present and level up to streaming your flick fix on Showmax or Netflix . Another option to look at if you’re already a die-hard DSTV subscriber is DSTV Now. There are other streaming sites out there, too, but in South Africa these are the big guns. They are easy to sign up with, and most offer free trials, so you can try them all and make an educated choice.
For many (and we mean MANY), the best-loved thing about uncapped internet on a high-speed connection is online Gaming . Gamers can play in real-time with peers around the globe. What kind of games you play depends on you, but here are some tips on getting the best gaming experience on your connection. Or you can just kick back and relax while watching your favourite YouTuber do the game play. Not sure where to start? Check out Steam for ideas.
If you prefer real-life sport to gaming, then you’ll be glad to know that there’s a stadium full of sporting websites to keep you up to date with the latest scores, Sport news and even stream the big games.
Expand your mind with TED Talks
We love TED talks . No list of cool stuff online would be complete without TED Talks. Whatever you’re interested in – there is probably a TED Talk about it. Want to ace your next interview? TED. Want to understand why bees fly the way they do? TED. Want to be a better person, learn how to spot a liar, or just have your mind blown by any random and fantastic information in 15 minutes or less? TED. TED talks are all 15 minutes or less, and they all consist of experts talking about their subject.
Stay Fit and Healthy
If you want to Stay Fit we have just the thing for you. There are so many online channels and apps dedicated to fitness, diet and good health. YouTube is a goldmine of free resources for the fitness inclined -from Yoga to Weights and everything in-between – there’s a dedicated YouTube channel waiting for you. There are also plenty of paid subscription services if you want a real-life, dedicated coach.
German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, famously said “Without music, life would be a mistake”. We couldn’t agree with him more. There are a lot of great streaming options for music, both free and paid. These are generally considered to be the favorites in SA: YouTube Music, Spotify, Deezer, 8Tracks, Apple Music, Soundcloud, and Tidal. Whew! What a list!
For those who love a good story, or who have an interest in, well, anything! It’s not all about YouTube. There are plenty of great Podcasts to entertain you while your hands are busy with the dishes, the laundry, whatever.
Keep the Kids Busy
There is more to keeping your kids busy online than just streaming TV shows (although there are plenty of good ones)! Why not Teach the Kids to Type or Help your Kids Study or, find some creative online resources to help you Entertain the Kids for hours?
