Film and TV buffs are rejoicing as Netflix announced that they will be available in 130 more countries—including the Philippines! We'd have to admit, we're pretty excited too. Imagine tons of movies and shows right at your fingertips! It can only mean longer bonding sessions with friends and loved ones in the comfort of your own home.

According to reports, Netflix Philippines will be giving a free one month trial to new users. They also have three subscription plans: Basic (P370/month), Standard (P460/month), and Premium (P550/month).   

If you plan to open an account, make sure you have a comfy nook where you can watch your favorite flicks all day! Prep your entertainment room essentials and consider these tips:

Throw in some blankets and pillows

Ensure comfort and prepare for marathons by adding pillows, throws, and blankets. Aside from adding pillows in neutral tones, you can also add one or two vibrant picks for a quirky touch. Fluff the pillows and pair it with a soft blanket.

Avoid clutter

A special screening with friends won't be complete without snacks and drinks! Avoid spills and crumbs by making sure that you have a table where you can keep all food items. You can also place a box of tissues in one corner.

To be able to create a laid-back vibe, remove the unnecessary items and accessories in the area. You can keep these in storage bins and baskets—just don't forget to check and segregate your belongings after movie night. 

Add a lamp

To make your binge-watching session more relaxing, set the mood by placing a lamp on a side table. You can also consider installing pendant lamps for a quirkier touch.
