10 products to fool your binge-watching space

Streaming services have made it easier than ever to indulge in multi-episode binge sessions. Whether you’re finally giving in to the hype and watching “Yellowstone,” or preparing to digest the new season of “The Crown” (coming November 2022!), you need a comfortable space to settle in. for hours at a time.

“We’re spending more time at home, where streaming TV shows and movies is the new ‘outing,'” says Eilyn Jimenez, founder and creative director of Sire Design. “Having a TV room or dedicated space that provides owners with all the comforts needed to enjoy this weather continues to be a request for our [home design] projects.”

Not everyone has the budget for a home theater, but there are several home products that can make your TV space a binge-watching paradise. Take a look at the list below and add them to your cart before the new season of your favorite show is released.

1. Go for a big screen

TVs are an investment, but if you want the ultimate viewing experience, upgrade to a big screen that lets you stream at your leisure. To get the most out of your TV binge, try a smart TV ($749, Walmart.com), where you’ll have easy access to all the streaming services you subscribe to.

2. Use a sofa cup holder

Drinks at your fingertips


Some TV room setups make it impossible to fit a small table to one side of your sofa. So where is your drink supposed to live? Enter this awesome accessory: the CouchCoaster ($25, Amazon.co.uk).

3. Get a cinematic feel with a Wi-Fi mini projector

A home theater experience has never been easier.


Watching your favorite show on your iPhone doesn’t quite capture the magic. If you want to live bigger and prefer not to buy a TV, you can project your shows onto a wall or white sheet with a mini projector ($120, Amazon.co.uk). Set up a makeshift cinema wherever your binge-watching takes you.

4. Bring the noise in with a soundbar

Nothing beats the quality of speakers in the cinema. But a soundbar ($329, Amazon.co.uk) is about as close to a home theater experience as you can get. This audio tech gadget will have you feeling like you’re in the middle of those fight scenes in “House of the Dragon” (the “Game of Thrones” prequel premiering this year).

5. Light it up and add ambiance

Let there be light.


“Lighting sets the tone of the room and, depending on what you’re looking at, can add to the environment,” says Jimenez.

Make sure the vibes are right in your binge-watching room, with mood lighting ($148, Amazon.co.uk) that can be mounted on the back of the TV and synchronized with the show you are watching.

6. Get a comfy couch

Disappear into your sofa.

Your plan is to plant yourself in front of the TV and not move for hours, unless it’s for more snacks or a bathroom break, then you’ll want a sofa you can blend into.

“Choose a deep sofa, because you’ll be sitting for long periods of time,” says Jimenez.

If you want to sit on a cloud and still have seating options, consider a sectional sofa ($3,520, Albanypark.com). It can be moved around in different configurations and it is available in seven colors to match your decor.

7. Get out your folding tables

The TV tray has come a long way since the 1950s. Now you can find functional and stylish designs. Grab a few metal folding tables ($49, UrbanOutfitters.com) that can be removed for your TV binge drinking and used to hold all your snacks.

Don’t want them taking up space when the TV is off? Just fold them up and put them away.

8. Satisfy your craving with microwave popcorn

Pop your own corn.


Popcorn is the ultimate TV marathon snack. But if you’re going to spend an entire day snacking while watching a show, you might want to consider something slightly healthier than a bag of buttered popcorn. This microwave popper ($16, Salbree.com) allows you to pop your own kernels and add as little or as much oil and salt as you want.

9. Relax with a back cushion

With anything you do sitting down, you’re going to need back support.

Consider this backrest pillow ($50, Bedbathhandbeyond.com), which features a white faux sherpa exterior with charcoal plush accents.

10. Keep it cozy, with a blanket that means business

Watching your latest obsession on repeat can take you into the wee hours of the night, so you’ll want to keep a blanket handy to keep you warm. It’s also helpful to have a cover ($30, Etsy.com) that shows you’re fully aware of your laziness, while fully accepting the fact that we all need a little TV binge once in a while.
