With the COVID-19 pandemic still on-going, we’re all spending much more time at home than usual. Fortunately, there’s a wide range of entertainment options on offer. However, if your bills are racking up and you want to cut your spending, expensive subscriptions aren’t so attractive. To keep yourself occupied without blowing your budget, take a look at these five tips for finding free entertainment online:
1. Take a Virtual Tour
Visiting major attractions or traveling to new cities might be off the agenda for now, but you can explore the world without leaving your home when you take a virtual tour. Experience different countries, see the latest exhibitions at world-class museums, or simply watch a live webcam streaming what’s going on in your corner of the world.
2. Try YouTube
YouTube has an endless range of videos to enjoy, and you don’t need to be a premium user to make the most of them. From full-length movies and TV shows to documentaries, influencers, and skits, you’ll find every form of entertainment you can think of on the world’s biggest video platform. If you want to listen to music, why not convert YouTube to Mp3 and enjoy hit songs at any time? Whether you’re into pop, RnB, soul, trance, techno, dance, or swing, your favorite tracks of all time are sure to be there.
3. Download Free Games
If you’re into gaming or you want to try something new, you’ll find plenty of new and classic games available to download for free. Both iTunes and Google Play offer free apps, while sites like GOG have made a selection of DRM-free titles available for no charge on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Lots of developers are offering free games to keep people entertained throughout lockdown, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest promotions.
4. Free Classes
Sites like MasterClass give you the opportunity to learn anything you like from high-profile industry figures, such as Dan Brown, Martin Scorsese, and Gordan Ramsey. While you do have to pay if you want to enroll in an entire course, introductory sessions are available free of charge and with no obligation to sign up. Try a taster session and make the most of the chance to learn from the greats without parting with your cash.
5. Become a Conservationist
If you dream of traveling the world, saving endangered species, and exploring unchartered territory, now you can. Wildwatch Kenya is inviting volunteers to help them review images from 100 motion-activated cameras and identify and count the animals. This provides valuable information to researchers and helps to create effective conservation strategies to protect species, so you can keep yourself entertained and protect endangered animals at the same time!
Make the Most of Being at Home
It won’t be long until life returns to normal, albeit a ‘new normal’. Until then, you can make the most of being at home by taking advantage of the free entertainment that’s available online. No matter what your interests are, there is a ton of content for you to stream, download, and enjoy.
