People Reveal Their Winter Streaming Habits

I stream; you stream; we all stream (with ice cream).

"Every evening before bed, I like to reward myself with an episode of my favourite show at that present moment (right now it's Amazon's Catastrophe). I turn on my Himalayan salt lamp, get cozy as heck, and stream on, baby!"

"I love to stream old movies with a glass of red wine by my side in the winter. Something about the snow, or maybe just the quiet, gives me all the feels and makes me want to cozy up with silver screen classics."

Sam C.

"One of the few pleasures of coming down with a cold, which seems to take up approximately 90% of the winter months, is streaming all the television your haggard heart desires. I like to pick one show to binge while I'm on the mend and spend all of my waking hours watching every single episode until I'm well enough to be a productive member of society again. Then I'll go back to streaming television only most of the time."

"I live for Korean shows when I'm working out because they have long episodes and riveting storylines that will make me forget that I've been on an elliptical for an hour and a half. I probably spend longer periods in the gym during the winter months because a) I'm trying to counteract the need to hibernate, b) going outside is no longer an option, and c) I'm stuck in a very good K-drama. So anyways, my Korean drama/variety/talent show watching skyrockets in the winter months."

"I watch TV in the morning while getting ready. I put my iPad on the ledge above the sink in my bathroom and watch while I'm brushing my teeth."

"I have one of those thin, long space heaters in my bedroom. Like the ones that look like a really wide rectangular box? Anyway, my favourite thing to do during winter is to crank that baby up to the highest setting, set some nice pillows down on the floor, lay down on them with my laptop on my chest, and extend my legs out above the heater so the rising heat warms the back of my legs. Because my feet and legs are where the cold hits me the worst, it feels straight up heavenly." —Tyler H.

"I love hot baths, especially in winter. I put my laptop on a chair next to the bathtub and stream a show while soaking in the bath until the bathwater turns cold, at which point I add more hot water and keep going until my laptop battery dies. Then I get dressed and get into bed and continue watching on the TV (until I'm ready for the next bath)."

"I LOVE WINTER, and one of the things I love about it is that if you are hungover on a Sunday, there's no pressure to go outside and try to have an adventure and take pictures of yourself doing stuff in the sun. It's too cold! Instead, you can order greasy food and stream shows all day long with a clear conscience. My first winter in NY, my boyfriend and I streamed all of The Sopranos, and it was just so damn cozy and relaxing I could die. Streaming shows on a winter Sunday — while wearing sweatpants and eating delicious warm meals — is pure heaven."

Jana P.

"My cat is just as equally committed to winter streaming as me, as I am a primary source of heat during the colder months. We wake up early so we can dive deep into our favourite shows before the roommates wake up. We also like to prepare large batches of stews/soups/chilis in a slow cooker so we can eat delicious food throughout the day/week without the hassle of cooking for ourselves each day or deciding on what to order. "

"I literally just buy (order from my bed) a bunch of food and prepare to be indoors (in bed) for an entire weekend streaming the crap out of a show without any kind of regular sleeping or eating schedule."
