Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Dare I say those immortal words... The BBC licence fee.

I wonder how that would work if BBC content is on the same potentially free platform as the other main terrestrial channels???

I thought that. If It's classed as a different service to the iPlayer, people could once again watch BBC content without a TVL.

Tricky one if it's what i think it'll be basically a service linking the relevant players but the content is one app then yes you's still need a TVL as technically it'd be linking to iplayer.
I'll ask around at work see if anything has come through to anyone in the office.

All it would take would be a minor update to the regulations to allow another streaming player to be referenced in the TV license. They don’t actually check that you have a TV license in the iPlayer now, it’s just a nag screen designed to ensure everyone knows what the rules are.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Whilst I have used Netflix in the past I am not currently subscribed. After a call to retentions yesterday I have moved onto the Ultimate Oomph package.

I have just received my new contract and the first thing I notice on the TV section is a green tick against ‘Netflix Access’ .

Does this mean I now have access to Netflix included in my package?

You'll be able to access it from the app, but you'll still need to subscribe to Netflix to get any content.

Strange why Netflix is the only service that is shown in my new ‘bundle’ when Netflix has been in the Apps section for a long time now, why nothing else?

Have you tried to access and watch something on Netflix?

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I may be wrong, but I don't think that Virgin include Netflix as part of a bundle.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

First I've heard of it but it doesn't make sense to have Netflix access ticked when it's always been available in the apps etc ??

No reason why it couldn’t be though, not so long ago I found out that for reasons as yet unexplained I was paying Netflix direct and again through VM. Cancelled them both about 10 months ago.

I still can’t see any reason to have Netflix alone listed as part of my bundle, doesn’t make sense.

It's coming part of a ultra on demand package.
No timeframe as of yet though as soon as something more comes in work about it i'll let you guys know what i can.
