Beat your weekend load-shedding blues — What to watch on Netflix and Showmax

Watching movies and TV shows on Netflix and Showmax is a great way to pass the time during load-shedding.

With winter making its presence fully known in South Africa, many would prefer to get their daily dose of entertainment indoors.

If you plan on streaming at home this weekend, you should be prepared for when load-shedding inevitably strikes.

As Eskom will implement stage 2 load-shedding until Sunday at 22:00, you will be without electricity for at least a few hours on either or both Saturday and Sunday.

The good news is that even if your TV does not have backup power, you can still watch Netflix and Showmax on a charged laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Friend of mine just told me he was watching an old Star Trek episode and just as Cpt Kirk ask Scotty for more power, and he replies he can't give anymore, off goes his power.
Who says the universe doesn't have a sense of humor.
