I hope Amazon don't do similar with Kodi on their Fire Sticks.

The reason i went with 2 Fire Sticks is i got them on Black Friday for £25 each and this was before i knew Kodi could be installed on them.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I was thinking of taking up the one month free trial of Amazon Prime via the app on my smart TV, I saw on their site that they had season 3 of Ray Donovan which we haven't watched yet, we saw the first two seasons, but when I go to the Amazon Prime site it looks as if they charge you per episode, about £2.50 or thereabouts, anyone have Amazon Prime?

Just saw that mate, thx, was looking to see if they were showing Billions, but that doesn't seem to be available on the 30 day free trial.

Next week, the only programmes I have selected from the Sky channels to record on my V6 are:

Madam Secretary (Sky 1)
Limitless (Sky 2)
Lucky Man (Sky 1)
Shades of Blue (Sky Living)
The Catch (Sky Living)
The Blacklist (Sky 1)
24: Legacy (Fox)
Legion (Fox)
Bull (Fox)
Quantico (Alibi)

Now, considering we are in peak season, that's not exactly mind boggling, is it? This compares with 14 dramas on the terrestrials (plus other programmes, such as Question Time), for which I don't pay. It makes me wonder if I can justify continuing my subscription to the pay channels sometimes, and the position seems to be getting worse.
Seems like I'm not the only one who is underwhelmed by Sky programming.

Yet there's still nearly 11 million people paying a monthly subscription. What's wrong with the British public? Too much money and not enough sense. Most are probably only paying to use the PVR facility and catch up service without noticing they are rarely watching actual pay TV content.

That is a bit harsh Chad calling the British public stupid.

What's the Virgin stats?

Are they equally stupid?

Probably given the amount of people who leave Sky for Virgin media's £29 deal for 70 channels when they get 240 channels on Sky just by cancelling their TV never mind the phone and broadband.

I don't see where I was decrying it.


OB seemed to be effectively making the point that the most viewed shows were on Freeview, and in comparison, Sky was underwhelming
