A quick glance at services subscribed to tells me they will be fine.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I see that Now TV is planning to add 4K and HDR in the near future to its streaming service.

https://www.pocket-lint.com/tv/news/...f-boost-add-on

HDR would be a very welcome addition to the underwhelming 4K versions of Sky Movies and Boxsets currently available on Virgin Media boxes IMO. I also read elsewhere that Now is ditching its streaming sticks due to the proliferation of their app on smart TVs. Any chance we will see this soon on Virgin's boxes?

Amazon to buy MGM Studios for $8.45 billion.


https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/26/amaz...r&par=sharebar

Quote:
The deal is the second-largest acquisition in Amazon’s history, behind its $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods in 2017.

Quote:
Amazon said it hopes to leverage MGM’s storied filmmaking history and wide-ranging catalog of 4,000 films and 17,000 TV shows to help bolster Amazon Studios, its film and TV division.

American Horror Story is a Fox show. Netflix doesn’t have season 9 yet, with s10 coming this September. I suspect AHS will be on Disney+ before the end of 2021. The other 3 have been confirmed by Disney.

Two months Entertainment Pass for £9.99, so roughly equivalent to £4.99/month, available until 3rd June at http://www.nowtv.com/offers

It says new customers only, but seems to work if you don't currently have an active Entertainment Pass, even if you've had one previously.

It's a substantial library and as such it cannot be listed on here, but it includes over 4,000 films including Creed, Legally Blonde, Basic Instinct and 10 Angry Men. There are also 17,000 TV shows including The Handmaid's Tale, Fargo and Vikings.

New stuff to be added includes House of Gucci, No Time To Die, Respect, and Adams Family 2.

The Handmaid's tale is a superb show.
