Won't expect much from ITV where movies are concerned as they only have Harry Potter and Star Wars. :lol:

This.

I currently have Netflix, Now TV and Amazon Prime (my Prime is heavily discounted and when the discount ends so will my membership) and I am not signing up for anything else. I’ll be pirating anything I want to watch that are exclusive to the other streaming platforms.


Prime is the best service for me because of all the other things included.

I cancelled nowtv as it wasn't being used.

You just know they went for BritFlix first and were told they couldn't use it :lol:

What's the bet this gets used as some post brexit hero for exports.

That’s a cheery thought.

It’s more likely that this is a Sim City like game that is being played by a really shitty kid. And if you think it's bad now, just wait until that kid finds out about masturbation.


I once spent an afternoon watching Youtube videos about the Mandella Effect, some of the theories people were suggesting were really strawberry floated up.

One was about how there were Lovecraftian type aliens manipulating reality and the reason why some people have different recollections of past events was that they could see through something called the 'Veil' into the 'real' world.

Sounds more like a pitch for a sci-fi show.

Conspiracy theories :lol:

I heard something similar about remember things differently because of parallel universes and such.

JFC at that name. It's like they got a Daily Mail comments section to come up with it.

I think it makes sense if you don't live here, but there must be enough stuff on the iPlayer to make this service redundant.

Problem with iPlayer is loads is missing and newer stuff is removed after something like 28 days.

iPlayer isn't really on demand, it's within a month. Which really sucks and I've missed loads because of it.

If BRITBOX actually offers stuff permanently (which would be better still than Netflix with its expiring licences), then it will be a better alternative to iPlayer.

The problem is that it isn't an alternative to me, it's an add-on, as I already pay for iPlayer with my TV licence.

You forgot ITV2's roster, which is a perpetual loop of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Knocked Up, Love Actually, and The Matrix Trilogy.

They'll probably remove more content to make this more "appealing".
