Turn binge watching into something productive


et’s face it. Good TV will consume you, and there’s nothing wrong with allowing yourself to be totally engrossed in what you love to watch.

It’s even harder to look away when you’re mesmerized by the LG SUPER UHD TV with HDR plus Dolby Vision™*. Deeper black levels and superior brightness plus HDR can make your favorite shows come to life like never before.

But what about your worldly obligations, you ask? Afraid you might feel guilty for missing out on being productive? Have no fear. No matter what type of show you love to watch, we’ve got a few tips you can follow to ensure yourself a very productive binge watching session.




With the LG Super UHD TV, literally every seat becomes the best seat in the house. All you need to do is fill them with the right people. The next time you plan on binging a series, share the fun with others. Use this as an opportunity to reconnect with old friends. It not only acts as an icebreaker, but it also helps build new memories to share in the future. Plus as an added bonus, bragging to them about owning LG’s best 4K LED TV doesn’t hurt either.


LG Super UHD TVs can reproduce a wider pallet of over a billion rich colors for a more lifelike picture, so naturally this is the perfect fit when binging reality shows, talk shows, and game shows. Since these types of programing don’t require your deepest concentration, you might as well get a workout in as you’re watching. Take some of our examples to get the most out of your anti-couch potato, binge-watch workout.



Imagine yourself on the edge of your seat during the season finale of your favorite drama. Then the show suddenly ends and you’re left shaking in anticipation. Luckily, the next episodes are automatically locked in queue and ready to play. Now the last thing you can be bothered doing is pausing to prepare dinner.

If this story sounds all too familiar, we’ve got you covered. Here is a three-course meal you can prep in under 5 minutes, minimizing the amount of time you’re diverted from your viewing pleasure


APPETIZER — Spicy Kale Chips
Sprinkle olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, and red pepper flakes over fresh kale. Mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. Lay kale evenly on a baking pan then toss in the oven at 375 degrees as you return to your TV. Check back in 15 minutes.


MAIN COURSE — Pizza-ritto
The heavenly marriage of pizza and burrito. Warm a flour tortilla in the microwave for 5-10 seconds. Spread 2 tbsp. of pizza sauce evenly across the tortilla. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder. Throw in chopped spinach, string cheese, and pepperonis. Wrap like a burrito and return to microwave for another minute. Transfer to toaster oven to crisp the outside, and you’re all set!


DESSERT — Frozen Blueberries and Peanut Butter
Simple as that. Mix well in a bowl and munch on an excellent source of antioxidants and protein.

There you have it, perfectly productive ways to spend your binge watching that will leave you feeling far from guilty. After all, when you own a 4K Smart TV that offers superior viewing through advanced technologies, delivering over a billion rich colors in smoother motion and elevated brightness, you deserve to stare at that beautiful screen as much as you desire.
