Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I think we're looking at two separate things there, both are delays but suspended indefinitely makes it sound like Now may not come to BT.

And if it ain't coming to BT then anybody who thought it would be coming to Virgin soon after obviously got their information completely wrong.

The Sky/BT deal has only been suspended for a few months. I believe there are technical reasons for this.

It is interesting to note that we won't be getting our UHD and additional on demand programming from Sky until next year either. I think the two are connected.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

People are speculating that it might be because the new owners want to roll Now TV into Sky X. I hope not.

I heard that the date had been repeatedly put back and that they had decided not to issue a new date until whatever the issues that they have have been resolved.

Could be. I wonder if VM will be letting Sky have our UltraHD channel in return??

You will soon be able to get cheaper Now TV passes if you shop at Tesco:

https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.ph...-clubcard.html

- A new 'credit wallet' will be added to Now TV customer accounts.

- Redeemed Tesco Clubcard vouchers will be added to this credit wallet at three times face value.

- Credit in the wallet will last for three years from redemption.

- Credit will be used to pay for any passes you currently have, but not phone/broadband if you have those services.

It would appear, therefore, that if you have credit in your credit wallet, and then take a retention offer, it will be paid for from this credit, thereby allowing you to firstly get three times face value, and then benefit from a reduced monthly rate.

I doubt that. If the Sky Atlantic channel won't be available to VM viewers, why would VM give away their UHD channel?

The details of the new deal did not say anything or imply in any way that this channel would be made available to Sky viewers.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Are the shows on it exclusive to Virgin if not why would Sky even bother with it anyway.

Yes, some of them are, such as The Rook, which is the latest drama to screen on this channel. Actually, when I compare the content of the Virgin Media UHD channel with the current output of Sky Atlantic, the Virgin channel is far better, even though it is a primetime only channel. No commercials on it, either.

Not everyone wants to subscribe to Netflix and Prime, and therefore dramas from those sources, such as Bloodline, Start Up and House of Cards are still useful to have, covered by the pay tv cable subscription.

True, I just wondered if Sky would want to beef up their UHD lineup in return for letting VM have their UHD content.
