It's good anyway, regardless. Once it appears we will be able to search and bookmark from one box. How good is that?

If you have a TiVo, you could be right, but Netflix is as fast as any other gadget I've come across on my V6.

Prime should be with us by the summer, apparently.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Does the Amazon app on Youview give you access to the latest films via PPV ?

Quicker and easier to go to the app on my TV than through a V6.

I don't see how. Surely, you need more than three clicks for your smart TV - one for 'Home', a couple (or more) clicks of your up/down or across buttons, and a click over the app itself to get to the app.

On the V6, a click on Home, a click on Apps & Games, a click on Favourites and a click on the app.

Each click gets a pretty instantaneous response, at least in my experience.

Why would i want to turn the V6 on when it takes me about 3-5 seconds to click the Prime app on the TV which is about 2 clicks on the same button area and i could easily do it with my eyes closed.

I'm not saying i wouldn't use it but at the moment the apps on my TV are still modern and instant and i don't have to go into different menus to see the apps.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

It’s currently a single button press on my TV’s remote to access the Amazon app but when it comes to V6 it will hopefully be integrated into series link so a single press from My Shows to get to a program.

So you turn off your V6? Why? We keep ours on all the time.

No wonder you say it takes longer!

Yes, of course. I was forgetting that some remotes have a Netflix and Amazon button.

Why would i want to have it powered on fully when i am not using it, that is pointless and costs money, you don't leave all your lights on in your house 24/7 do you? lol

Besides it is still far easier to access the app on my TV than on a V6 so that point is mute.
