Re: Netflix, Amazon and NOW TV become more popular than pay-TV services

To be honest, even the BBC are pushing people away from traditional TV. For example, a lot of the sports events that the BBC covers now are available through the BBC sport app, but aren't shown on traditional TV. 

For example last week from Thursday to Sunday I was watching the British Open wheelchair tennis, which was covered by the BBC and the BBC sport app but wasn't shown on live TV and before that on Tuesday and Wednesday I was watching the British Open wheelchair tennis through their YouTube channel, but once the BBC started covering it. The quality of the BBC stream was much better, so I used the BBC instead. From that point on. 

If you haven't seen wheelchair tennis. I highly recommend catching the gentleman's wheelchair doubles final on BBC iPlayer

The only major rule difference in wheelchair tennis is that the ball can bounce twice the first bounce must be inside the court boundaries, but the second bounce can be anywhere most wheelchair tennis players will try to take the ball on the first bounce

Re: Netflix, Amazon and NOW TV become more popular than pay-TV services

I use Amazon, NowTV, Netflix & TVPlayer for my TV Viewing, there’s so much more to choose from & being able to have the Sky Sports Channels for a day is handy as I can get it when I want to watch my Football Team play & don’t need to pay for the rest of the time, and it’s also cheaper than having Sky or Virgin.

@stereohaven

The Office for National Statistics has released its annual report on internet usage - including figures about the use of streaming services.

The full report can be found here.



If this has solved your issue please mark this as an accepted solution.

Those little green stars by my name mean that I'm a Community Contributor - not Now TV staff. I just try to help out if I can.

Hi @johnhatesvirgin 

if you mean can you watch Netflix on now TV branded hardware, then the answer is yes, you can but be aware, though, that Netflix subscriptions must be managed through the Netflix website. (Through a separate account to now TV) They cannot be managed through now TV.
