Also worth bearing in mind if you have TV from 1 source it goes up £3 to 5 - if you have from 10 sources they are all likely to go up £1 or 2, thus costing you a lot more every year!

A interesting story about Netflix and Blockbuster.

The all knowing BBC, who can see the future after all, describing the ongoing challenges for established streamers to deliver value.

I quite like this quote about the forthcoming Utopia:

"This is, of course, great for audiences. Possibly.”

That's not to mention all the original series that are on there. And with two or three new programmes of worth coming out every week, this service really is second to none, and head and shoulders above Prime.

If the BBC really think they will overtake Netflix in this game, they are deluded, much as I think they will have a decent offering on iPlayer and Britbox.

Only for now. It will eventually go the way of Blockbuster.

I've already explained why I wouldn't. No need to continue sidetracking the discussion.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

What a strange argument on a forum...i didn't understand that at all!

Going forward with what OB said yes its down to personal taste but i have to agree with the view netflix is better. Straight away the ability to see everything you are subscribed to is far superior and with the various sections for different type of shows. Prime is a mess. I get told by people "have you watched that show yet..." hadn't even seen it as an option after weeks of scrolling through stuff. Every other row wanting me to buy things! I see something and go "ooh i like that" and guess what? Its not on prime its available to buy.

I get amazons approach but i'd rather just see things i've subscribed to and if i really want to watch something else...i'll find a way to buy it

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Prime is hopelessly compromised by its need to provide rentals and free/inclusive material in the same place. Possibly you lot don’t notice this on your fast fibre internets but Netflix also beats Prime hands down when it comes to managing low or variable bandwidth. Netflix is highly responsive and almost bomb proof at times when Prime will just stop working altogether for five minutes (in our house anyway, where I can stream at 4Mb only when I’m home alone).

On the plus side, Prime doesn’t charge extra for UHD.
