As of the sixth day of the new year, I have watched the first six episodes of Batman: The Complete Television Series on my smartphone. My family gave me the Blu-ray box set for Christmas even though we don’t have a Blu-ray player. The set came with a download code that lets me watch online.
The quality of the video is great, as you can see in the screen capture from my phone. The audio sounds great too, although I usually don’t bother using my earbuds for best quality. It’s more convenient to set the phone on a counter while I make breakfast or get dressed.
As of now, the best way for me to watch the episodes is on my phone using the Flixster app. I had hoped to be able to watch them on my TV using the Sony SMP-N100 that I bought three years ago. The box allows me to watch several online video sources including Flixster’s movie trailers. However, it doesn’t let me log in to my Flixster account.
When I tried watching my collection via Flixster on my Chromebook, I got the following error message: “Your screen configuration does not support protected playback in HD. Playback has toggled to SD. For more information, please visit our FAQs or contact support for additional assistance.” I will have to research that another day.
