Entertainment consumption has gone up over the last few years. Ever since the advent of on-demand streaming services, everyone wants access to more entertainment. But while services like Netflix and Amazon offer several great streaming options, they don’t have the kind of diversity you get with Cox internet plans. Cable TV providers have distribution agreements with a variety of networks including HBO and Showtime. At the same time, their on-demand services also contain access to these networks and their exclusive content. If you’re listing a series of home entertainment options you can watch at home on Cox, find some below.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Will Smith’s breakout role on The Fresh Prince was the epitome of late-20th Century sitcoms. From the funky and catchy intro to the end credits, this show will keep you entertained for hours. Will (Smith) lands in Bel-Air to live with his uncle after getting into a bit of minor trouble in his hometown. Young Will soon has to learn to adapt to his new home, a new family dynamic, and a new outlook on life. All on top of being a young African American teenager in Bel-Air. And in between the fits of belly-aching laughter, you may find The Fresh Prince delivers some profound but subtle wisdom Cox.
Band of Brothers
Remember David Schwimmer as Ross on Friends? The lovable, goofy, and sometimes borderline creepy Ross Geller helped Schwimmer make it into the big leagues. For many people, his character’s name is far more recognizable than his own. Which may have prompted him to try a new direction in Band of Brothers. Meet Captain Herbert Sobel (Schwimmer) and many other members of “Easy Company” in this retelling of Stephen Ambrose’s war history work. While the show itself builds into a captivating World War 2 narrative, the acting quality alone justifies a watch.
The Simsons is one of the longest-running adult cartoon shows in TV history. The show has been a trailblazer in creating a market for cartoons that have a more mature audience than young kids. Meet Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Simpson. A wacky and dysfunctional middle-class family in suburbia. The show has always played on pop culture and frequently pokes fun at celebrities and events. Over recent years, The Simpsons have generated a rather sinister reputation of predicting disasters like 9/11, Kobe Bryant’s death, and even the Trump campaign.
Game of Thrones
If you missed out on the Game of Thrones hype train the first time, don’t worry! There is still plenty of entertainment to come from GRRM’s fictional fantasy universe. But if you want to be up to speed on the upcoming spinoffs from HBO, a little immersion could help. HBO’s Game of Thrones has garnered the reputation of being the last great cable-only TV production in the world. As such, it remains a huge favorite among fans, and it helped HBO gain access to a franchise that will offer entertainment value for years to come.
The Sopranos is, according to many, the most comprehensive bit of entertainment on the mob scene. Meet Antony “Tony” Soprano, a captain in a huge crime family based out of New Jersey. The show opens with the brutal but likable Tony waiting for his first session with a mental health therapist. Right from the opening scene, the show captivates viewers and takes them on a journey through what the average day may look like for a high-ranking member of the Cosa Nostra.
James Gandolfini forever immortalized the role of Tony Soprano, the bullish, foul-mouthed mob boss with a propensity for fainting under stress. As you can imagine, the Mafia does not take very kindly to its members behaving in that manner for Cox. Less so when said members could be divulging incriminating information to a therapist. The Sopranos offers entertainment that you don’t see with many new shows following the same theme. The remarkable hodgepodge of being a mob boss, a husband, a father, a son, a nephew, a murderer, and worsening mental health has all the flavors you could ever want in a character.
