Re: 1966 WC Final

I remember watching it as a 7 year old on the little tv in our lounge with my mum, sister and grand parents. Dad was a mechanic at the local garage and couldn't get the time off so he missed watching it live although he heard it on the radio. Then a few weeks later I and many of my school pals were ...

Re: itv Hub Now TV

SOLVED! I managed to go to her villa today, and discovered that the location setting for itv hub had for some reason changed to Glasgow, so the default itv would have been STV. Don't know why or how it happened, but changing the location to an English postcode restored the main itv channel to the h...

Re: itv Hub Now TV

Thanks for that, I do understand that about itv 1 changing to itv a while back, I only called it 1 on here to differentiate from the others. The only live channels showing are itv2 3 4 etc itv does not show. She showed me on video chat and it definitely is not there. In any case something must be aw...

itv Hub Now TV

I have a client using a black Now TV box 2016 vintage, she says she hasn't been able to get live itv 1 on it for some time. Live itv 2, 3, 4 etc are on there but itv1 just doesn't exist. itv 1 catchup is on there, although in typical itv hub fashion not that much is available. :( All the other UK ca...

Re: Homeland on catch-up

Just tried it on Samsung smart TV and on my amazon fire box, both working fine.

I've had the same thing some times, even had similar random issues in the UK

Re: Android box connecting to "Hotel" wifi

I've got SmartDNSProxy on my laptop which doesn't slow things down. When I'm away I take my laptop and can use an HDi cable to plug into the TV to watch, although I realise that's not ideal long term. It's basically what we did when we first lost the UK TV channels but it's fiddly, I agree. Yep sam...

Re: Android box connecting to "Hotel" wifi

Whilst he's trying various stuff to get UK TV it may be worth doing a check on the speed and ping on that connection too, shared wifi may not be enough to watch tv especially once a VPN is used.
In my experience in hotels etc shared wifi can be iffy
