Seems to be more and more of these launching, how many do folk on here have/use?

Off the top of my head, there’s:

- Netflix
- Amazon Prime
- Apple TV
- Now TV
- BritBox
- Disney+ (Launches late March)

The closest folk used to get to binge watching was a Soap Omnibus if they’d been away on Holiday!

I have Netflix and Prime. Use both.

I also have Now TV (entertainment pass) which I rarely use. Had a free trial, went to cancel then got an offer of £1.20 a month for 6 months (it’s usually 7.99 a month) so kept it for the time being.

I’ll probably try Britbox once they get an app for the PS4.

I have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Also use a Roku box for ITV hub, and the equivalent C4 and C5.

Ditched £82/month Sky subscription last year, have no aerial, don’t watch any live TV or BBC iPlayer, so no TV licence either.

TBH probably watch more in YouTube than anything else.

Netflix and Amazon prime for me. Use iplayer and most catch up services. Disney plus looks more tempting more for the nostalgia of watching star wars things than anything else. Not sure if BT TV counts but I've got that as well.

Netflix and Amazon.

In June my SKY TV deal runs out an goes to a monthly rolling contract, my broadband discount deal ran out in January so I am waiting until June to negotiate both.

Im looking for:

SKY Q
2 Q Boxes
Sports
Super fast Broadband

Determined to get it all under £70, I know I will have to go through the cancelling 30 days malarky.

My neighbour has this deal for £63, my Dad has this for £42!

Better off with virgin cos you get BT sport as well for around the same price. Also we got a deal for 79 quid a month with fastest BB, every channel an extra box in the bedroom and unlimited landlines calls anytime to anyone. That was as a new customer renegotiation for this year was nearly 90/month and had to drop the anytime/anyone calls to weekends only, which isn't supposed to be a problem cos we've all got mobiles yet the wife still uses it now and again for some reason reason--pushing us usually over 90 a month.

Tip for sky tv users. Phone up and say your cancelling. They have a department that deals with this. They will offer you a new deal on less money rather than lose you. Ive halved my cost in the past. Dont use sky now out of principle.

I use my dad's passwords and watch BT Sport and Sky on my laptop. (You can register two devices in addition to the satellite I believe.) I've also got two netfix logins too via friends.

Beware there's a scam e.mail doing the rounds about an offer of vastly reduced rates to join Netflix.

It's a pure con to get your bank details and very cleverly you do actually start to receive the service so people aren't suspicious [ they apparently have a load of promo trial codes which they activate on your behalf so you start to get the service ] and when money starts disappearing from your account you don't immediately start to suspect the Netflix transaction and then when you do your bank won't be any help as they hold you responsible.

And no before you ask i didn't get done, I did get the e.mail but AVG picked up on it being a scam and flashed up a warning then I did a little digging into it and what Netflix were doing about it. Turns out it originates in the Philippines and Netflix are having a lot of problems shutting it down apparently as the scammers have found a derivative of their e.mail addy that looks very convincing and that they hadn't registered themselves.

I pay for Netflix through Turkey for just over 2 quid a month. One time set up with VPN and a use fee free card revolut to pay. All content is from the country you login via.

Aye done this before,get more off but I want to tie both in this time so may have to fully cancel until they come back with the 50% voucher that many seem to be getting.

I cant get Virgin where we are.

Thanks for the heads up NS - I work from home and must get half a dozen potential scammers a week trying it on.
Netflix and Amazon Prime for us plus BT package for phone line, fibre and TV.
Have had run ins with both BT and Sky in the past, money grabbing gets that they are.

My smartview android app for my tv android box is decent..basically has a combination of everything from all pay services..all for 50 quid a year..

I just watch it when i feel like it..sometimes i forget i even have it. I dont have too much interests in some of the stuff other than sports.. i like a film to watch now and again but have gone off watching various series ages ago..and bingewatching all day long is certainly not good for the health in my opinion.

I do enjoy BBC i player though and various stuff from around Britain..wildlife,adventure stuff to name a couple.
