Watch Like a Boss with Globe Streamwatch Roku Powered

Recently, we had a lot of long holidays declared due to the ASEAN Summit held in the Philippines. We just had a staycation at home due to the horrendous traffic caused by the dedicated ASEAN lanes for delegates.  Mickey and I watched a movie marathon on cable TV, but there were times that we ran out of good programs to watch, and we wished there were more channel options.

Last week, our wish was granted when we received a box from Globe at Home at Casa Villa!  Inside it is a comfy blanket, a pillow, a mug to put our drinks in, microwaveable popcorn to munch on while watching our favorite shows, a flashlight for when we watch scary movies and the most important thing inside the box (and probably one of the best gifts to receive this Christmas) is the Roku powered streaming stick, which allows Globe Streamwatch users to watch a variety of content across 100+ free channels in different categories including sports, lifestyle, travel and more.  You know what this means?  We can now Watch Like a Boss in the comforts of our own home and at our own time on our HD ready TV.
