Re: UK Civil Service Pensions post Brexit

I received mine earlier in the week and sent it back in the post. I'm wondering if that was a good idea, I've just had a message from my daughter thanking us for the Christmas card (posted six weeks ago!). Anyway I think it is a Proof of life thing, really. Although if the remaining widow/widower te...

Re: UK TV on Netflix

I'm a bit late to this party. A lot of Netflix stuff is available on Netflix USA and not necessarily on other Netflix sites until later (if ever). With SmartyDNS, I can log into the USA site and stream perfectly well. In DNS settings you change them. Websites region: US DNS server: Europe If you can...

Music Player wanted for Samsung S10

Hi, I've downloaded about 1k of mp3s onto my new phone. I am looking for a Music Player, I used to use Google Play Music app but that just wants you to sign up and download their music now. I have no interest in doing that, I have enough mp3s to last me the rest of my life! I just want to play the m...

Re: Smarty BBC

I use Smarty DNS but only use the VPN set to London2 and it always works for BBC, ITV, C4 and Ch5.

Re: No BBC at all

I'm only using Phones and Tablet currently for UK TV viewing, I just set SmartyDNS to the VPN and use London2.

It works like a dream on BBC iPlayer, ITV hub, All4 and My5.

Re: Best thing since sliced bread, possibly

Hi, I was wondering, for those who ordered the reversible usb plugs, how they found them, do they work as expected? I'm thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy 9 and was unaware these reversible usb leads could be used on it. Having said that, I suppose there would be no reason an ordinary usb couldn'...

Thanks Gerry, I'm doing everything through my phone at the moment and don't think to open sites as Desktops. Cheers.

Re: BBC Sounds App for Android

Hi Beachcomber, I downloaded an apk from apkmirror but it was an old version from June 2018. It loaded OK but because it wasn't the latest version, on opening the app, it went into update mode and then told me I was in the wrong country! I'll try apkfollow and hopefully that will fix it - until the ...

Re: BBC Sounds App for Android

Hi Gerry, I set up a new Google account but it did not ask me to give a UK address, although I gave a UK mobile phone number. This worked as they sent a verification number to it. I used my VPN set to UK to be on the safe side. I can't work out how to log out of the Spanish Google Play Store so I ca...

Re: BBC Sounds App for Android

As I said, I used Smarty VPN set to UK, London.

It looks as though I may have to download an apk from some site. I'm a wary of doing this as I don't want to download any malware. I'll have to do a bit of Googling to see if I can find a safe site. Thanks Mark.

BBC Sounds App for Android

I am trying to download a/m app onto my Samsung S7 phone. As you will see I am getting the warning about the app not being 'available in your country' I have pressed Clear Cache and Clear Data in the Google Play Store settings. I set the Smarty VPN to point at London but I still get the not availabl...

Re: Netflix USA

I have finally got my problem with Netflix sorted out. Using Smarty DNS I set Websites Region: USA DNS Server: Europe I had to go to Settings, Apps, Netflix, Storage - Clear Cash and Clear Data. Go back and Force Stop. Turn phone completely off, then turn on again. Make sure Smarty DNS is running an...

Re: Netflix USA

I've got the free trial with Netflix Spain, at first the Money Heist program had it in English but later it reverted to Spanish only. Most other programs I have tried play in English. House of Cards is still not showing Series 6, not even in Spanish. I uninstalled the Netflix app (that I was using f...

Re: Netflix USA

Hi, Thanks for that. I've just checked again and still no series 6. I don't know how Netflix are detecting the fact I am trying to use Smarty's VPN. Another odd thing is that there is a series called Money Heist. My daughter has seen this in English in the UK but when I play it here it is only in Sp...

Netflix USA

My knowledge of the Netflix system is practically nil. I can log in to Netflix through my daughter's account in UK and it works very well. I understand that House of Cards Series 6 has started in America on 2 Nov 2018 but is not yet available in the UK. We were wanting to start watching the program ...
