Another International Cable Cutter Find

COW Blogs : Ron Lindeboom's Blog : Another International Cable Cutter Find

As I've mentioned before, my wife and I really like learning how other cultures look at the world and learning a bit of their history, as well. One of the easy ways we've found is to explore their television programming.

For a few years now, one of the cultures we have been spending some time in, is that of Korea. We tend to like watching the Korean historical dramas, not the more recent stuff, which we find pretty banal and trivial. But there are some wonderful episodic series that explore dramatized people and events in Korean history. Sure, some add characters that are fictional to spice the dramatic flair of the story, making it more adventurous for today's audiences. But often, they play things very close to events as they happened.

One of our favorite distributors featuring Korean programming is DramaFever. While some might point to other areas of their catalog, we find their strong suit to be in the historical dramas. We have been watching them for years now and enjoy them for the very reason that they are unlike American television, in a very refreshing way. 

DramaFever has a website, as well as apps for your smartphone, tablet or computer, and boxes like ROKU, Apple TV4, Amazon Fire TV, XBox or Playstation.

We just finished a 24-part series, "The Princess's Man," which both of us really liked. Very well done and which we started watching after discovering it on HULU -- who has an entire DramaFever section -- but the show was pulled from Hulu's current line-up before we could watch all the episodes, and so we went to Dramafever and searched on the title.

We were able to watch the last five episodes using the app on our STB using the free DramaFever app. While "The Princess's Man" did not show up in the list offered, when we searched the title, all 24 hour long episodes were there.

We also tried to use our web browser and cast it onto the screen using Chromecast, but they had blocked that. It does allow the top-tier subscribers to cast their content onto their flatscreens from other devices, but we weren't ready to pay for a year's subscription to do that.
