UHD content is now available on Google play for UK customers. http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/11...lay-movies-uk/

Interesting we had info yesterday that Google are considering having talks with VM to get Google video on the tivo platform.

That's enlightening, and is very sweet music to my ears. This is exactly the kind of news I've been waiting for. This could reduce the stranglehold Sky have on so much content and will be welcomed by other platforms too.

PS - I think we should break this to Den very gently as he wouldn't be expecting such devastating news.

More good news! It just keeps coming today! Quite unexpected to hear such news so soon. Glad to see that theone plc is a DNP free zone!

In which case, talking about the future with you is a bit of a waste of time! There will be no tomorrow, all things won't pass, the weather will not change....

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Not live sport but Man city have signed a £10million deal with Amazon prime for a behind the scenes tv series.
OBs predictions aren't so daft now are they doubters? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41934307

It's just the start of those companies getting into sport mate, especially football, they're just testing the water imo, I expect bigger things for live football in the coming years.

So you agree with OB that all the big sports like football will go over to the Streaming companies MM?

Not necessarily, Den, but I do think that they will eventually make a bid to show at least some live games.

Either in the forthcoming bidding round or the next. You'll see.

The most likely contender is Amazon, but that is just my feeling - it would make sense, to my mind.

You keep telling yourself this, you are yet to provide proof.
I have already posted proof that Amazon are testing the waters so to say in football.

A series about a certain football club is just that and nothing more.
