Pennyworth not coming to NowTV guys.

Yes, saw that story as well, a rather disappointing destination for it to land on...... oh well, maybe in a few years the DVD (if they do one??) will end up in the HMV sale and I'll give it a try???

 

My desire to give Amazon Prime Video a try is not that great, so another cost add-on for Starzplay and the double-cost is not going to happen..... don't care how good the show might or might not be, I'll wait for that bargain DVD!!!

Currently I have Prime Video (£5.99) but am more likely to cancel it through to lack of quality tv shows I wish to view and the fact I wouldn't be prepared to pay even more to add Starzplay to it. Very unfortunate that Sky haven't managed to acquire Pennyworth.

After a long long time thinking about doing it, I recently cancelled my BT TV and Sport freeing up some televisual budget to try something a bit different, but Prime Video isn't really in my mind, like You, I don't think there would be enough on there to watch....... I think I'll give Netflix a go.  Oh and I might even give Sport more of a go on Now TV if they ever do improve that picture quality and frame rate......... we can but dream!!!!!

 

Was Starzplay ever included with Amazon Prime as a no-cost add-on????  I thought some time ago that I read a magazine piece rounding-up all the streaming services and it mentioned Starzplay access with Prime, but never mentioned it as an extra cost....... was it free for a while to build up interest and then became a cost extra or maybe it's always been an extra cost and I just read that article wrong????????  Well, they've got their mitts on Pennyworth, I had hoped E4 might have got it.

@robert1997 @Thom77 @caseyb1993 if it’s not Sean Pertwee then it’s not Alfred Pennyworth! 🧐

@Thom77 StarzPlay is an add-on channel, so pay for Prime (or Prime Video) and then pay for the channel sub on top. There’s a short free trial, or longer free trials / discounts around Black Friday/Prime Day time, but basically cough-up! 👍💰

I'm sure Starzplay have a 50% off offer for 3 months. (Still need Prime though.)

 

I usually get Prime around about Christmas time for last minute presents (I'm so unorganised 😂) so if I have nothing to watch I may try Starzplay to give Pennyworth a go, if it is out then. (Almost typed out Pennywise for a second then! 😂)

I see from the Amazon website, that until 16th July, there is an offer to get the yearly Prime membership for £59 rather than the usual £79......... this was the sort of offer (that they do fairly rarely) that would maybe tempt me,  BUT, I'm not really feeling it just now, just don't think there's enough to watch that would interest me!!!!!

Re: Calling all Gotham fans!

@Thom77 @commanda6 @caseyb1993 Can’t remember which thread we used for Gotham chat now so I’ll stick it in here but now the final episode has aired (apart from the final-final time-jump one next week to somehow convince us David Mazouz has turned into Christian Bale) what do we think of this last season?

 

I’ve got a 1 word summary of my opinion ....

Re: Calling all Gotham fans!

Hi @Andy 

 

I haven't started watching season five yet because I'm waiting for it to be available on Netflix so that I don't have to suffer watching SD content on a 4K screen. So you could say I've turned into a bit of HD snob. 

 

I would imagine quite a lot of people don't watch stuff on normal free to air TV any more because in a lot of cases stuff isn't available in HD as standard, and I think in this day and age, it's getting to the point where people now expect it to be standard bearing in mind that HDTV broadcasting was introduced in 2005 and satellite and in 2009 on terrestrial, so it's not new technology any more, and should not be considered premium , especially with the advent of 4K, 4K should now have become the premium and  HD should have become standard. If broadcasters were to make things available in  HD as standard. Then they might actually see an improvement in the number of people watch their channels and the more people they have watching the more money they can make from advertising

 

This is a problem with Gotham being E4. This time round I've actually managed to largely steer clear of spoilers.
