The CNN app is available still on the 360 box.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I’d never heard of All3Media but apparently they make Call the Midwife for the BBC, which raises an interesting question about how much stuff of theirs will remain on the iPlayer for an extended period, or will find its way onto Britbox. It all depends on the precise details of the commissioning deals they’ve signed with the Beeb for each show they make.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Is there a way to watch the sky cinema app on anything other than an iPad or laptop? Thought I could get it on the fire stick but apparently it’s only through now tv?

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Depends on your TV - some allow casting from the tablet to the TV, so you can watch what is on the tablet on the TV as well.

I've read elsewhere that it is most likely to be the rollout of Sky available via broadband.

Does anyone think that this deal could lead to Disney+ coming to VirginMedia?
I hope so.

Assuming there is a ‘deal’.

Disney have licensed some 3rd party British scripted content from All3Media but there’s nothing as yet to suggest there’s more to it than that - the same DS post also seems to presume stuff about Discovery and A&E with no other sources or links to back it up.

I would take a lot of it with a pinch of salt until we see something official from relevant parties.

According to information already highlighted in this forum, Virgin Media will carry Disney+ on the 360 later this year.

I don't think the All3Media deal will impact on it one way or the other. The delay may relate to the time-limited Sky exclusivity deal.

That's true, but as this is the streaming thread, I feel compelled to point out that it is available on Amazon Prime.
