Not too long ago , the only way for people to watch the latest programs was on the telly. Before the days of smart phones, WiFi and 4g connectivity, the major source for static entertainment was at the living room where the 29-inch TV sits. Those days, cable TV was the norm and there were a dearth of on-demand shows available .
Technology had advanced and the world of Video on Demand (VOD ) expanded . In the early days , VOD can be watched on telly for a nominal fee per show . The cost does add up if you intend to go on a series or movie binge.
Fast forward today and the whole of VOD had evolved . With faster streaming capabilities, more affordable and reliable smartphones such as the Oppa 9, entertainment can now be found at the touch of your fingertips. You can now have the telly in your pocket .
