Ultimate Binge-Watching Kit

BY: Christopher Mahar | Dec 11, 2018

A binge-watching session can break out at any moment–whether you are hurriedly catching up on the wacky family hi-jinx of Westeros in preparation for the newest season of Game of Thrones (premiering July 16), looking for solid uses for all the garmonbozia you have lying around (probably don't eat it), or simply trying to avoid all this summer sun, you're going to want to be sure you have everything you need. All the things you need to binge-watch the best television.   Here are all the items and services necessary to keep you comfortable through your next television marathon:

Technology

Westoworld is one of the best shows to bingewatch. Without the right technology, your binge session of Westworld won't look like anything to you. Stop tethering your computer to your tv to stream shows on the big screen. Plug in the Roku Premiere+ to stream Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, and much more, all delivered in HD, 4K, and HDR picture quality. Living with roommates or loved ones who aren't as enthusiastic as you about staying up until all hours to finish up a season? Order some comfortable, wireless noise-cancelling headphones so you won't disturb their sleep. For the advanced binge-watcher: Try one of the many tv's with Roku baked right in.

Food

The cast of Hannibal gather for a meal. You're going to need sustenance during your binge, and Pizza Hut and Domino's will get you only so far. May we suggest Blue Apron for the ease of use, variety, and minimal physical activity required? Whip up a meal a true gourmand like Hannibal Lecter would be proud of, all without leaving the apartment. Looking for a nice Chianti to pair with Hannibal and some fava beans? Look no further than Wine.com. For the advanced binge-watcher: Want to do the absolute minimal amount of work to eat? We've got you covered.

Comfort

Carrie cry-face from Homeland. Bingeing through a season or two of a show can often be an emotional experience. If you're predisposed to making Carrie's cry-face while watching Homeland, make sure you don't run out of tissues by using the Amazon Dash Button. Simply click a button to reorder Kleenex, snacks, or whatever Prime-eligible products you worry about running low on. Of course, you're also going to want a slanket for quality snuggling, and proper back support is key to going the distance. For the advanced binge-watcher: Oh my.
