Blessing in Disguise: Top Movie Channels to
Help You Get by Quarantine
Online content streaming platforms are convenient and what not, but will they ever replace conventional movie channels? Nope, they haven’t and they never will!
There’s just something about staying true to your roots that makes your mind feel relaxed, doesn’t it? Whether it’s about going for a hearty grilled cheese and tomato soup combo, or choosing your cable TV over your fancy-schmancy smartphones, nothing replaces the good old classics.
