Where to get your TV on de­mand

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - TV SPECIAL -

Net lix

From £5.99 per month, net­flix.com The US sub­scrip­tion ser­vice has more than 900 box sets to stream, plus movies. The Net­flix app is avail­able on con­nected TVs, Blu­ray play­ers and games con­soles, or you can use a set-top box or stream­ing stick (around £40).

BBC iPlayer

Free with the BBC li­cence fee, bbc.co.uk/iplayer New shows are avail­able to stream for 30 days and you can down­load to watch off­line. It’s avail­able on Freesat, Sky, Vir­gin Me­dia, YouView, Smart TVs or, as with Net­flix, via a set-top box or stream­ing stick.

Ap­ple iTunes

From 99p, itunes.com For back-cat­a­logue movies, Ap­ple’s ser­vice is close to un­beat­able. It is, how­ever, rel­a­tively ex­pen­sive, and it’s hard to get iTunes to your TV with­out buy­ing an Ap­ple TV.

Ama­zon Prime Video

From £5.99 per month, ama­zon.co.uk Ama­zon’s ser­vice is sim­i­lar to Net­flix and is also avail­able as part of a bun­dle with its Prime ser­vice (for £79 per year, in­clud­ing free shop­ping de­liv­er­ies). Get it on your TV in the same ways as Net­flix.

Now TV

From £6.99 per month, nowtv.com With Sky’s off­shoot ser­vice you buy monthly ‘passes’ to watch Sky chan­nels, with pack­ages of sport, en­ter­tain­ment or movies. Ac­cess in the same way as for the ser­vices above, or buy a Now TV box (from £14.99).
