At times when you are too tired after work, you just want to snuggle at home and watch some movies online instead of spending some additional money on unnecessary stuffs.. Even though I started working for only 1 1/2 years, I do feel that life is too short. We might not know what will happen the next day. So I think I will treasure all those moments / free time I have. Definitely there are times that you want to go out for holidays and take a break from work. Working as a sales engineer is definitely not easy. Sometimes you also want to spend some of the time by watching some dramas with siblings to strengthen the family bond. Since both sis and I are living together in KL (3 hours drive from our hometown), definitely we do appreciate our time being together.
Thanks to my friend for introducing Bento Live application to me when I asked her about free video streaming service. For your information, Bento Live is an app which is embedded on Smart TV. If you own a Smart TV, you will get to stream Hollywood movies for FREE.
To those who are not aware of, Bento Live is a completely LEGAL online video service provider in Malaysia that offers streaming on-demand videos of movies, TV shows, documentaries and animations.
Do not fret if you do not own a Smart TV as you can also watch free movies on your PC and laptop. All you have to do is just sign up at bentolive.com and you are good to go!
Bento Live has 60 movie titles available and the best part is they have subtitles for each movies! *jump with joy* I always find it hard to watch movie without subtitles because of different culture and different accent in different part of the world. Besides that, they come in two subtitles for me to choose which is English and Malay. So this is really a plus point in Bentolive.com as non-English movies require subtitles definitely.
You can opt to choose English or Malay subtitles or no subtitles too in case if you want to improve your listening.
In addition, Bento Live provides HD quality movies which really amazed me. I do not have to worry about straining my eyes watching the low-quality movies on laptop or PC which causes my eyes’ power are increasing day by day. Furthermore, with pirated movies, you don’t even get the chance to watch such high quality movie.
There's a 60-second advertisement before each movie and I don't mind that because we are watching those movies LEGALLY. Don't mind sacrificing 60 seconds of my time just for the advertisement. (: It’s worth it after all.
On top of that, good news to all Samsung users too! There's also a Bento Live Android app as well where you can download for FREE from Samsung App Store! *wide grin* However, non-Samsung users are required to pay a one-time fee of RM 6.50 to download the app and enjoy the movies. I still think it's worth it when you are paying for superb HD quality movies. (:
I browsed through the movies available in Bentolive.com and decided to watch The Best and The Brightest starring Neil Patrick Harris as Jeff and Bonnie Somerville as Samantha who have only recently move into New York City, where elite private kindergartens are placed there. Neil Patrick Harris has always been my favourite actor. :) In this movie, they are desperate to place their 5-year-old daughter, Beatrice (Amelia Talbot) into Manhattan's top kindergarten. They have to face a lot of obstacles and even seek for the consultant’s advise on which kindergarten that they should put their daughter in. The only bad point in the movie is that too much of vulgar words from the ladies. I thought ladies should be well-mannered? *hehe*
Two weeks ago, I visited Bento Live office to witness the Bento Live app on a 75" Samsung Smart TV.
The quality of the movie is superb even with the 75" Samsung Smart TV! *jaw drop* It's my first time watching movie with such a huge screen of Samsung Smart TV. The one in my house is only half of the size. *wide grin*
I can't help with myself but to pose with 75" Samsung Smart TV too. :P
Before the movie was loaded, we watched the Bento Samsung Smart TV commercial. Link to the commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lT4YLGqWqI
