I remember it being it the news at the time, just didn't realise it was that long ago.

@DaveyH

I was referring to @nadger's mention of Netflix, NowTV and Amazon which, if you want the HD versions, come in at around £23 p/m if my calculations are correct.

With NowTV you can always get multi-month passes cheap/on offer/bundled with NowTV boxes and when you cancel they almost always offer you extra months at a discount.

I've never paid the advertised/full price for a pass,, with the deal I'm currently on I'm effectively paying £2.50 pcm for the Entertainment pass.

Re: A very useful list of Netflix Genres by ID

My parents use them - didn't realise the company is owned by Sky.

Had a bit of a nightmare when the EPG would pick up the general menu but I couldn't find the "I want the standard channels option" on the box, it only had on demand stuff (which we don't use). Being impatient as I am I tried various reboots and retunes. One retune later it picked up around 250 channels, so I thought - fine. Working, except it wasn't.

Eventually it came back after my sister done something (moved the internal dish), and worked again.

Like any piece of technology I guess, good when it works, pain when it doesn't.

@Mook Total spend comes to £16.97 per month - as has been said one can always get cheap NowTV entertainment packages.

As a couple of OAPs we probably watch too much TV Embarrassed

Re: A very useful list of Netflix Genres by ID

That's not even the price of a night out at the cinema so I guess it's money well spent. I did watch more TV but my Humax PVR died and I never replaced it and driving the recordings on my Samsung TV to too much like hard work, so I don't bother now.

I use Amazon prime which costs less than £10 per month. This is great value as it gives me access to loads of Amazon video which includes lots of films as well and free delivery plus lots of free kindle books too. I also have the Netflix family package (between 2 houses works out cheap) and the Youview from Plusnet. We're covered.

Re: A very useful list of Netflix Genres by ID

I currently have Netflix, Freeview and Freesat.

Don't really have much time to watch any of them.

Re: A very useful list of Netflix Genres by ID

I used to watch via Freesat a lot until a couple of years ago then the CBS channels I wanted appeared on Freeview so I rarely watch it unless I want BBC News in HD during the day,

 

A full channel list is here.

 

Edit: Gave wrong link.

@Mav  BBC News HD is on Freeview CH107, although I guess you know that but live in area which doesn't receive all the terrestrial multiplexes.  Undecided
