Movie Time!!!

It may be almost the weekend, but that doesn't mean you need to have big plans to go out.
I have listed the most used streaming services in the region that you might wanna try.
Streaming services are very popular these days and I decided to summarize them for you to try ( Thank me later) And by the way, they accept mobile payment just in case your credit/debit card doesn't support online payment.. (Yey!)

Below are the popular streaming services in the region on which I tried all of them.
Of course, they offer a month of trial. If you are satisfied with the service, then you have the option to pay in the succeeding months depending on how many users you opt to subscribe.

Starz Play

Starz Play emerged in the UAE 2 years ago (as far as I remember). Starz Play is an app from  STARZ cable and satellite television network that allows you to stream their library of popular films and original television series. I am familiar with this streaming service. As on my previous job in the Philippines (As a call center agent) We are selling this as an add-on package for American customers who have a cable subscription package.

Starz Play has its own original content. Some of the popular Starz Original Series are below:

I tried their service for a month of trial and decided not to continue, Why? At that moment, they had limited movies to offer yet they merely focused on their original collections and some of the movies that I searched were not readily available. Starz Play offers Arabic movies, classic TV shows, and Bollywood movies dubbed in Arabic.

Starz Play comes with Yuppflix which offers Bollywood movies and TV shows, in different genres in 12 languages including Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.

You can register up to 5 devices and payment of 35 dirhams monthly. For more faq, you can visit this link.
Or if you want to try their one-month trial, you can always visit their website by clicking on this link.

Next is


Contrary to Starz Play, So far this is my favorite streaming provider, although they just launched last January 2016, a few setbacks once Starz has emerged. They managed my expectation and I was so happy that most of my favorite movies were available. They have their own exclusivity of Netflix Originals, And as usual, they offer one month of a trial as well. You have the option to choose

So, what is Netflix? It's an American media-services provider headquartered in Los Gatos, California.
So yeah, #Stateside folks.

For Netflix, unfortunately, you can only subscribe to their service using credit and debit card payment, so if you are unsure if your card supports online payment, better check with them.

Recently, Netflix was trending because of their own award-winning original series like Birdbox, Stranger Things, and Orange is the New Black.

No doubt that the people behind Netflix create such series that entice more customers to sign up with them. You have the option to subscribe to the following

I tried their premium for a month of trial and I have utilized all their service feature. That includes the Ultra HD availability. I am using an iPhone X which has the Dolby Atmos capability. Only a few selected movies and series are available like Okja, But the audio and video quality is superb.

I love to watch documentaries such as BBC Documentaries by Sir David Attenborough. And Netflix has all the content. Though the price for its premium is a bit pricey compared to its counterpart, the real game changer here is the Dolby Atmos capability. I'm keen on audio and video quality which is why it is hard for me to switch to another video streaming provider.  I can notice as well that regardless of the speediness of your internet connection, Netflix itself adjusts the quality of the video so that it can still provide a streaming playback without any buffers at all. As for the Starz Play, You should have at least a stable internet connection.

If you're on a budget, You have the option to subscribe to their basic package. With standard-quality content. However, if you want to stream into 4K Quality content, You can subscribe to Starz Play as it offers 4K Content ( as per availability of the device and content) for a mediocre price of 35 DHS. 

Anyway, it's up to you guys to decide which is better. 

The third one is 


WAVO is an online streaming platform where you can watch your favorite shows, Hollywood and Arabic blockbuster movies, kids' content, Live sports, WWE, and original content. Wavo is powered by OSN-Orbit Showtime Network, A direct-broadcast satellite provider serving the Middle East and North Africa. 

You can watch live-stream content from HBO, Paramount Channel, and some of the OSN Sports Channels. Nat Geo Wild, Sky News, and Disney Channel are available as well.

Exclusive TV Episodes such as True Detective, Camping, and Insecure are available as well.
There is a trial of 14 days. To activate the trial, a credit/debit card is a must for you to use the service. 

If you want to experience live streaming, especially to sports network channels and cricket channels. I can highly recommend this streaming service. And it will cost you $9.99 every month.

Some of the movies that I searched were not available, and some of the HBO Livestream content is unavailable due to restrictions. 

So far, those are the 3 Live Streaming Content that I can recommend.
