The good news is you didn't have to listen to Gary Birtles know it all co-commentary. Although I must commend him, as I don't believed he mentioned Brian Clough once!

If you can afford it I'd recommend buying the 4k Firestick. Much better and faster than the old ones. On a really good offer at the moment on Amazon.

You'll probably need to Google instructions to install some/all of those apps I mentioned.

Get some home plugs. Look them up. Might work well for your situation.

Yep, as Stinks says, unless you're close to a router, it's really not worth the hassle with wifi drops/weak signal etc. Buy yourself something like these; it's worth the wedge to have a stable, fast connection. Ensure you don't plug them into extension leads though as can affect the signal coming through. Pass-through plugs are even better as you don't lose a socket.

Yeah, there is. After the issues i let my 3 month sub lapse so I'm no longer with them. Just use Sinister and Universal now.



The Telegram page that they did use (after the previous one was removed) was the Limitless VOD group page.

Thinking of signing up to Amazon Prime 30 day trial for tomorrow's game to save any streaming hassle.

Anyone else doing this and if so, does the trial qualify you to watch Prem games? I'm hoping so, as the 30 days will cover our West Ham game on Prime too.

A no brainer really - will be interesting to see how it performs overall.

#edit - because our game is the "Amazon debut" with this service will probably have SD2 on standby just in case

Yeah, f--uk it, I've just signed up too just as a form of back up as I can't get to Selhurst tomorrow night. TBH, my stepson keeps moaning because I cancelled Spotify so I might even keep with it as you get the music, films and next day deliver (i assume).

Yeah it has next day delivery. My girlfriend has had a Prime account for years. It's proved invaluable at times. We have a 13 day old baby and she's ordered stuff for him/her at 10 at night and it's arrived the next day. Be aware that not ALL things are available for next day, but most are. Plus we have loads of 4K content available too, which you don't get without a Prime account. Can access the app on the TV by pressing one button on the remote. It's worth it IMO.

Not sure how widely available it is now but we have Prime Now here. So you get delivery of a subset of items within an hour or two. Over £40 and its free (not difficult to get over that these days) £3.99, if not. Do a lot ofstuff and very impressive/handy. Tbh a few things from main site arrive same day lately.

Think it's available in some areas. I know people living in South London (I'm out in Surrey) who can get stuff same day

It's up here in Leeds area. I would guess major cities where they have delivery hubs/warehouses. I know they are hated by many but I have always found them to be really good and offer better value than the other 'monster corps' out there. When they achieve world domination it may all be different I know.

Big Alexa fan too. - Shameless huh

Thanks for the advice. Never entertained it before but for the £8 per month it’ll be worth it for the extras you get. We also have countless Alexa devices round the house. Congrats on the new baby as well Simon. Remember those days with my Daughter. Both delightful and shattering, but immensely worth it.
