We will. As already put further up. Assuming it's region lock as blocking VPNs one by one just won't work then I've already signed up an American one and Canadian one and will then VPN both. Used PayPal for payment on each. Not sure if their measures are even in place yet but so far so good. If they in turn bugger up PayPal I'll give prepaid cards a try.

Sounds like your fully clued up. No offence mate but that seems like way more messing about than I could be arsed with. Could become an endless game of trying to beat the system.

Wow, that is some serious income Netflix has now, using £6 a month as an example, that is nearly £5.5 billion a year! OK, there may be a few customers in a free trial but that is a hell of a lot of money

No wonder they can afford to produce good quality originals, good luck to them

Totally agree with you there Chad, I mean how important to your life is it to keep trying to beat the system? after all it is only TV.

That HBO deal Sky has until 2020 is not likely to be re-newed, in my opinion.

I'd say the complete opposite most of the production companies are owned by the very broadcasters you talk about.

I agree that UK broadcasters have set up production companies to make programmes for them, but my point is that there is an over-reliance on US imports at present, which is not sustainable in the medium to long term.
