Boring TV/streaming/set up thread


#1

Gonna ditch sky finally.

Thinking of going for Now TV with either a Chromecast or a Roku, so I can watch Netflix/Eurosport as well.

Going for now tv as our broadband speed/reliability is rubbish, and can get a good deal including fibre if going for Now TV.

Suggestions/scorn welcome.


#2

isn’t Now Tv part of Sky anyway? I avoid these Sky cunts like the plague, myself.

good luck with whatever decision you make dude

Now TV’s really good. I’d steer clear from getting a bundle with broadband, as part of the joy of Now TV is constantly cancelling on their website and getting a much cheaper price each time. I’m averaging about £4 a month for the entertainment part and about a fiver for the movies.

The TV boxsets are hit and miss. They tend to expire really quickly, so we often get a third of a way through a series that’s just been added and it disappears. Bit shite.

Streaming boxes are all pretty much of a muchness. You should be able to get a Now TV box cheap in the supermarket, which is a Roku box anyway. I’ve got an Apple TV because I’m an idiot. It’s totally unnecessary.

Does your son know he is about to lose a load of kids channels?


#5

tv kids pass: £2.99.


#6

Phew


#7

Now TV boxes don’t let you play Netflix as far as I can tell? Which is the only real reason why I think I need to get a chromecast/roku.

The Now TV deals at the moment include a Now TV box for free.

that’s BLAZING speed!

(hate Blaze so, so much)


#9

(not got a smart tv, as you can probably guess)


#10

Yeah, I always pretend it isn’t on (the advantages of being able to read) also Fireman Sam.

I quite like a bit of Blue Peter, Dengineers, Marrying Mum and Dad - that’s more my sort of pace.


#11

Pretty sure that you can load Netflix onto it using something called sideloading.


#12

You can often pick up a chromecast for £20 so get one of them. I have the audio only one and it works a treat.


#13

can you not do everything on the Roki stick?


#14

Chill out, Theo.


#15

oho. interesting. I’ll check that out.


#16

ooo, not heard of dengineers before. Looks right up my ahem my son’s street that


#17
