I got one of those so-called ’’fully loaded’’ boxes for my birthday last year, fully loaded my arse! Linkage

Get yourself Netflix and Amazon, and a half decent Chrom/Roku/Apple box..
If you want newer movies, try NowTV, but Sky prices can fuck off IMO...

Honestly, with Netflix and Amazon, you have more than enough content to go around. Then there's BBC, AllFour and UKTV apps for even more stuff.
It's getting cheaper to watch great stuff without the risks/ripoff issues of getting a dodgy box.
Those days are gone..

I don't have a 'tv-stick' of any kind. I have a raspberry pi for classic gaming, nothing else. Everything else is taken care of by my TV. It has all of the legit software pre-installed, amazon, netflix bbc iplayer etc. The Netflix content if way better now that it was when I tried it a few years ago, it's actually work getting.

The box I have is the MX Pro, I'm actually thinking of turning it into an Android gaming console if that's possible. I renewed my TV license last week, not sure while though considering I hardly watch the fucking thing. I guess I would be wasting dosh if I got Netflix or Amazon TV, I only used that MX box a few times then got bored of it.

They keep trying to update the tv licence rules, since the analog broadcast stopped they trying to get around the "my tv cant get bbc" excuse. I got a letter at work recently saying that home tv licences don't cover watching bbc iplayer on your phone, apparently the places that you watch it must have a licence also. stupid.

I don't pay for any external tv services (except the stupid tv licese fee, which I'd like to see disappear (but that's another matter)). I got rid of SKY last year, after 20 years and just got a Freeview+ recorder. For everything else, there's the internet.

I'd rather spend my limited free time chatting to you guys on this forum
