My real interest is live EPL footie, films and tv series (not live).
NRL I can get on normal tv.
Schism

I've played around with Kodi for years but have never seen it as a great, all round solution - until now

I recently installed the Schism build on Kodi 17 and all I can say is - wow. It has everything and a beautiful, intuitive interface

Anything you could ever want for free - I may be dumping Netflix and Amazon Prime soon!

You can get it here:
SchisM TV

Kodi 17 here:

I enjoyed the first episode of Top Gear on iplayer the other day - a definite improvement without the ranga

Legion on Kodi/Exodus (or Foxtel if you are stupid) is also pretty good

Tried Schism but didn't find the interface very good for sport so currently giving Echo a run out.

Series 4 of Line of Duty is now on BBC iplayer and it's as good as ever

Series 3 of Broadchurch is on ITV Hub but the ABC show it a few days later

My wife and I enjoyed Big Little Lies (Nicole Kidman) - HBO so torrent or Kodi/Exodus

Series 2 of The Expanse is also good

Series 2 of Hand of God is on Amazon Prime - a bit silly this time round

I've watched a bit of Designated Survivor

It's okay - a bit far-fetched but that's Hollywood

Black Sails season 4 concluded - absolutely brilliant series from start to finish - sad it's all over.
The Americans - up to season 3 - continues to be brilliant.
Better Call Saul - missed this despite the fact that I was a big Breaking Bad fan - have downloaded the first two seasons - yet to watch them.
Fargo - again - missed this - have downloaded first two season - think it's brilliant - love the bit in episode 2 where he the hitman confronted in his motel room.
Fear of the Walking Dead - was a bit sad after the season finale of Walking Dead so downloaded all of this - I did try it when it first aired and didn't take to it, but quite into it now.
Legion - epic - roll on season 2.
Taboo - brilliant - roll on season 2.
Strike Back - not exactly high brow entertainment but a good show to watch when you're on the running machine, although the token shag every episode gets a bit old.
Jonathan Strange - brilliant.
The Leftovers - downloaded all of it - not watched any yet.
Mr Robot - brilliant - half way through the new season.
Top Gear - actually really enjoyed this season - the banter isn't great but the gormless trio had 20 years to work on their patter, so let's cut them slack. Loved quite a lot of the special segments, particularly the Aston in the alps.
Humans - didn't enjoy season 2 as much as the first - but will continue with it.
The Last Kingdom - bloody love this - more please.

Eagerly anticipating American Gods (as it's by my favourite author Neil Gaiman and stars Ian McShane), the Handmaid's Tale, Broadchurch S3 (all downloaded waiting to watch) and Car Share S2.

Just started the Leftovers - it's good and I see that S03 is set in Australia
We're just finishing the Iron Fist - really enjoying it
I'm also enjoying Top Gear - I think LeBlanc is perfect for it
Finished Broadchurch S03 last night - not as good as previous series but still very watchable
Didn't really enjoy Better Call Saul. I won't be continuing
Crazyhead - a quirky UK horror/comedy series on Netflix - was fun
If you haven't seen it already, then I recommend you watch iBoy on Netflix

Car share S2 very good. Wish they did more episodes.
