Yes - that came back a few weeks ago - but no HDR on their HDR stick.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Question. When watching Netflix through the V6 is it pulling the stream through the cable or over your wi-fi?

There is no modem in the V6 unlike VM's original Tivo so it uses the customer's separate broadband router via wi-fi. This is why TV-only customers can't have a V6 box, only broadband and TV customers can.

If I was being really pedantic the broadband uses the cable into you home and the router turns that into wi-fi, so technically the cable is always part of the equation.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Will a streamer seek to defy economics and go for 3 seasons of La Liga rights?

Probably not.

I still don't get how you think that a streaming service cannot afford to bid for football rights, although Sky and BT can.

As it has been pointed out before, streaming is just another means of delivery. The only obstacle remaining is the extent of fast broadband coverage throughout the UK.

It will be interesting to see the viewing figures for Premiership football on Amazon at the end of the year.

I don't mean any offence but the way you post things like "not a chance" makes it look like you know for certain, a better way might be "i don't think so."
Not having a go at you.
However i do think streaming services will increase their sports content, maybe we'll see something like a seperate sports pass from the likes of Amazon in the future.
