Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Why o why did they not release the app a few days early, that way we could be sure our equipment can support it before taking advantage of the special offer.

Nothing like the last minute

There were lots of articles about what it would be on going around beforehand e.g.

I've just had to physically separate my kids from it in order to get them back to their home schooling. I don't think there's going to be much else on tv in our house for weeks now.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Changing the subject completely can anyone recommend a podcast app for Fire TV devices please?
I used to use the Kodi iTunes addon but that no longer works.
In these unprecedented times I thought I would revisit listening to some podcasts for some entertainment whilst in lockdown so would appreciate any suggestions.

As an aside maybe we could add in hidden online entertainment gems others may not know about in this thread to keep our fellow forum members entertained?

Thanks Ben, I'd seen various articles but nothing that gave me enough confidence to actually subscribe. Looks like I was right not to, the article states Samsung smart TVs but unfortunately the app isn't available on mine.

Good job I didn't waste my £50. I'll have to wait until either the V6 gets it or it eventually appears on the Now TV Stick.

Interestingly, All4's Simpson's episodes end at Series 21 and Sky's end at Series 31.

I got an email from Hayu today saying that after April 6th it will no longer be an included subscription under VM, and would have to be paid for separately. There wasn’t much on it I watched, a couple of documentaries, and I always intended to go in and catch up on a few series of Top Chef. But not enough to justify paying for it.

Hayu is just intolerable rubbish to my mind. Hopefully, Virgin will replace it with something much better. Disney+ to top end viewers, perhaps, free of extra charge?
