Mine would have to be Shooter too....and maybe Some Kind of Beautiful because I like the title.

We have webtv4me now (https://anglophone-direct.com/watching- ... tv-france/) and don’t really get round to watching Netflix anymore cos there are so many thousands of pre recorded films and series. Looks like it still has some good stuff though.

I supppose that one advantage of Netflix is that they actually own the intellectual property rights to what they are selling you. If you are inclined to be picky that way.

Believe me, Kate, that you are the only person here that I would dare say that to now. Because, as you have said elsewhere, you decide the tone.

Well, maybe I should have said that the forum members decide the tone. :-) It's not what we say to each other, it's how we say it. :lol:

Netflix has a massive amount of content and, as Martyn says, is perfectly within all the broadcasting laws.

That webtv4me is very expensive. A high entry cost and monthly fees over trice that of Netflix. Much like the previously advertised MoochieMedia, it is reliant on the support of the person selling it.

Moochie Media managed to gain a lot of very unhappy customers.

For UK tv, the cheapest and best curent solution seems to be TVMucho as proposed by Allan. No upfront costs.

We’ve had webtv4me for a fair while now. We don’t find it so expensive, less than half of what we’d pay for similar in the UK. It is what it is. If one day it disappears, something else will take its place. For now, it works really well for us.

If I started a thread (under Shopping I suppose) called “How to shoplift from Intermarché and get away with itâ€￾, it would be considered in doubtful taste. But we have the moral equivalent here and no-one turns a hair, beyond saying, in effect, “I find it easier at Carrefourâ€￾.

I suppose this seems priggish. I plead guilty.

I think what Martyn is saying in his own eloquent way is that organisations like webtv4me are reselling programmes stolen from Sky and others and that people who wouldn’t consider buying a stolen car or a stolen TV set seem quite happy to buy stolen TV programmes.

As for it being cheaper than the same thing in the UK, I think what is meant is that it is cheaper than legitimately acquired programmes.

The losers here include Sky and BT and their legitimate subscribers.

And all the content providers who have licensed content to the broadcasters on terms which aren’t meant to include us. (Possibly because they’ve sold, or would like to sell, the French rights to Netflix France or someone). I find it as tiresome as anyone that the system works like that, and I imagine that the EU will ultimately break it up. But possibly after the UK has left.

I understand exactly what Martin is saying Allan. And you. I’m quite a clever girl behind the fluffy little woman persona. :roll:
It works for me.

Not strictly true as, living in France, there doesn't seem to be a legitimate way to watch Sky or BT's programmes. I guess most of us would be prepared to pay them if they would provide us with their services.

They seem to be on Hulu, which gives us a whole new arena for bodging with VPNs. But lots of nudity and nooky if you persevere, apparently.
