Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Interesting snippet from the OFCOM online nation report.

The proportion of adults offline is unchanged since 2014 and many have no interest in going online. Over the past five years there has been no change in the incidence of adults who do not use the internet (13% offline in 2019 vs. 14% in 2014).
This is the kind of thing you are dealing with when you try to reduce something to zero by shifting personal preferences alone.

I agree.

I imagine the majority of these will be pensioners on limited income,broadband is not cheap so why have it if you have little interest.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I have now received a reply about the poor picture quality on the All4 app. It's disappointing as there is a lot of good content that appeals to me especially the 'Walter Present' European series.

Quote:
Thank you for your email regarding All 4.

We would advise that HD content is not currently available on the new Virgin app, we had hoped to have it at inception, but the pandemic has delayed this. We do hope to make HD available at some point, but unfortunately we don't have a date at this time.

If you require further information, feel free to email me back or visit www.channel4.com/4viewers/faqs

Not sure if it has been mentioned - my Netflix is back up for 15.25mpbs for 4K material.

Did see that YouTube on my iPad seemed to be a lot sharper recently so I guess all the restrictions have been lifted for streaming quality.

Thanks. Shows that it is a cut down version of the full app then - interesting that they should include the name of some of the missing shows and try to redirect viewers away from Virgin Media!

I think you will find that the full version will arrive on our screens a little later this year. Don't forget the Pluto and MTV apps have not arrived yet either.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

So have been watching Plebs with my son who thinks it’s hilarious until we got to episode 7 Series 3 last night only to find my purchase of series 3 had been written off by Amazon Prime. Only option available was to purchase it again. So I entered chat ....... 40 minutes later they finally believed me even though it’s in my purchase history. I had to repurchase the series and will be refunded. The joys of not really owning anything physical.
