The Netflix app has been in development for years, and took many months to port to TiVo.

Plus it delivers content from Netflix's own servers, not VM's. Passing authorisation info from one company to another whilst not breaking data protection rules adds an extra layer of complexity.

VM is not making the process of signing up very easy. The sooner they start offering the SVOD services as part of a bundle with an easy way of subscribing to them, the better for everyone.
Downside of that might be you could then be tied to only watching through your VM Tivo/V6. At least with Netflix and Now TV you have your own account and can log in on any device or service that supports them.
It would appear that StarzPlay do not market directly to end users, it is an add-on to an existing service like Prime and eventually (when they get their act together) VM.

Any sign of the integrated billing of Netflix on VM? It was suggested that this would be in before the end of last year.

It's still cheaper than pay tv services, though.

But it’s creeping above your £10 price you keep quoting each app at. This app world could end up being a rather expensive one for those who like a selection of different content from different broadcasters.

It's a fact which you can prove for yourself by comparing what's on the non-sports pay tv channels that is worth watching compared with what's on Netflix.

It won't be long before a selection of streaming content cost more then a pay TV subscription.

My point stands as that is only your own opinion but many disagree with that sentiment.
