More info when i get it.
a fair priced AIO would be good. With all the content spread over so many services it is no wonder people access what they want from other sources.

I too use Plex and rarely even Kodi still

The story has been picked up by Broadcast which may suggest there is probably a bit more to it than mere rumour.

My NOW £1 per month Entertainment deal is due to expire next month, already received an automated e-mail discounting to £4.99 per month for 6 months.

No more gravy train I'm afraid, now that the country is starting to open up

That's still great value compared to the RRP though.

This very clearly states the trial is for broadband only subs.

Which makes me think this is not for a bundled subscription product but perhaps a trial for the new Liberty Global mini-box which would make sense given it appears designed primarily for streaming services and not specifically standard tv - a bit like the Comcast Flex Box.

It's a wee bit disappointing imo, I'd like to have seen the NOW TV app amongst that lot.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

A little more at the end of this link about Virgin Media's new upcoming streaming service. It doesn't add much except the bit about 2Gb broadband.
