    Nobody's ever seen a match though, let alone remembers the result.

    Dunno if you opted for alternative service since the weekend but I see that NowTV have added a Boost option with 1080 plus Dolby Digital since I last used a pass to watch final season of Game of Thrones... got a couple of Entertainment passes that were on offer in Tesco a few months ago, so might binge on Westworld and Gangs of London...

    Cheers. I did spot it as an option but haven’t pressed the button yet.

    I finished The Last Kingdom on Sunday night on Netflix, so have now cancelled that - first time since it began - as there’s finally nothing on my watch list!

    It looks like the best NowTV offer currently is a 7 day free trail. So I might hit that up for the Bank Holiday weekend and see if I can get through 3 seasons in 3 days.

    Hoping all I need is a fresh email address to be able to qualify for it.

    Use Gmail. You probably already know this, but for those who don't;

    Google ignores dots in email addresses. So you can sign up your normal address of ilovestinkyflaps@gmail.com but could also sign up with i.love.stinky.flaps@gmail.com and i.lov.e.stinky.flaps@gmail.com - most websites would see them as separate users but all would end up in the same mailbox.

    It's sometimes worth looking on eBay for Now TV passes.

    It's nothing personal, @scaramanga was updating the banned user list and just used the last email address on his clipboard.

    Surely a GDPR violation.

    If so, that's probably the least bad violation there's been on my clipboard for some time.

    I pay for a Seedbox.
    I find it worth it for the speed and convenience.
    I have an autodl-irssi filter running on rtorrent that starts downloading whatever torrent is my watchlist as soon as it's out.
    Then it will be auto extracted and sent to filebot which renames it and puts in a media directory for the Plex server to find.
    I just switch on Plex on my TV and there's new stuff waiting every day.

    Which torrent site do you use? And does the seedbox mean it seeds for you and you dont have to worry about all the ratio gonad*s?

    I pay €200 a year for iptv via my magbox, might be steep vs some options I guess but I get everything I need.
    Live tv (sd & hd) sky movies/sports, on-demand tv series and movies etc etc

    Just watched the first three episodes of Killing Eve, not impressed at all.

    The first series is the only one that got the whole balance right. There's no subtle humour in it anymore. I am still watching but something dramatic needs to happen to wrap it all up pretty soon.

    The wife loves it. I walked out after 10 minutes. Football is about the only thing i can watch for any sustained period of time.
