other programmes on video-on-demand: mei ah movies (includes “death note 1 & 2”).
sports in high-def.
hong kong dramas. i bought a 1–month pass to watch hong kong dramas for a month. good for brushing up my cantonese.
mobtv select, for mediacorp shows. i bought a 1–month pass just to remind myself what “army series” and “under one roof” used to be like.
pre fta: i think it means pre-“free to air”. you can watch channel 8 dramas before they are shown on tv.
jetix for anime.
my favourite video-on-demand programmes: “wild hogs” and “paprika”.
“wild hogs” because it’s a comedy and it looks great in high-def.
“paprika” because the visuals and story are amazing, even though it’s dvd quality.
the future of tv is now on mio tv! all tv programmes should be available on demand like this.
