I have all the above, Tomp, but I pay "5 a month for the privilege. I never look at netflix unless I know what I want to watch because oyou can spend hours searching, only to get bored. I will recomment a TV show from AUS called 'Rake.
Brilliant:

new telly question, I'm a little mutton Jeff so i like to have subtitles on the screen, I can get them on the freeview channels but not on the programs on the internal Apps, On my old telly I could get subtitles on BBCIplayer but, It took forever getting bbciplayer on my telly because , it was a smart telly, but an old smart telly and i was smarter that it, I had to go on the browser and type in my account and password with the remote, A long and laborious task, This new telly just pops it up, click on it and away,
Am I doing summut wrong or it that how it is ?

try settings and then accessibility....

for apps look for the speech bubble

How do I use subtitles on BBC iPlayer?
Start playing an on-demand programme.
Bring up the playback menu (you can use the enter/select, play/pause or arrow/direction buttons on your remote)
Use the arrow/direction button then the enter/select button to select the speech bubble icon at the top left of the screen.

Tom

I have a TalkTalk, YooView TV box, and it works fine, until it has to 'stream' programs over the internet, either on the catch-up service, or by the internal apps, and each app, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Britbox take ages to come on, and go off, the subtitles are there, but it is a pain in the arse switching them on and off.

So I watch Netflix, Amazon Prime and iPlayer via me Rokoo TV stick, which yoo just plug into one of the HDMI ports on your TV and the difference is amazing, each app on the Rokko comes on in seconds, rather than in minutes, and as regards Britbox, I had cancelled me subscription to that because it was such a pain in the arse using it on theTV Box, and it was only on the TalkTalk ,YooView box, and on computer, and I was sick of waiting for it to be added to the Rokoo stick.


BUT

In the last few days, Britbox has been added to the Amazon Prime app on the Rockoo, and at exactly the same price as a stand alone subscription from Britbox, and the quality is brilliant, it is better than on the YooView box, so now I can watch Britbox on me Rockoo stick cheers cheers cheers cheers

Thing is with my ears broady, they were damaged due to industrial noise and just by turning up the volume does not help because of the frequency difference, Like in a pub with a loud background music or just others chatting, I am unable to hear what the person next to me is saying, its just one big mumble sound, When the covid mess is over and I can visit a doctor again, I'll ask if they do anything,
I did ask before, but I never heard anything,, Rolling Eyes

No, they phoned me saying, " we'll get you a claim Tom and it we will take your £25% of the claim award, " So I agreed, They did all the legal stuff and at the finsh I was awarded £6,000,
Then they sent me a final paper to sign saying The final payment to me was £2700, I phoned them to say, " hang on Perry Mason 25% of £6000 is £1500 init ?"

they expained that the 25% does not include the VAT nor the insurance policy we take out to protect ourselves from a counter claim that the insurers might bring about, so, After the admin charges, insurance, and vat you are left with the sum of £2700, If you back out, then we will be forced to charge you for all our time and expences for work we have done,

Yours sincerly
Jack the lad, Evil or Very Mad
