Anybody here used a Roku box? In Canada, after you buy the setup which channels can you get free?

https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/tvs-a...er/p/108065353 It is $99 @ Costco.

We've been using Chromecast for about 3 years to stream Netflix to the TV, so we are familiar with this type of setup.

Personally, I'd like to ditch cable...just need TSN/Sportsnet Sky? BBC? and a few documentary/news channels etc.

Still watching Dicte but everything seems to be solved too quickly. Not much to get teeth into.

And why is it that she makes the discovery about a crime being committed all the time. Doesn't anyone else stumble across a body?

Late to the party as always, but just watched "SS GB" on the CBC app via Apple TV. BBC production. Very good. I read the book years ago & this was very well done.

The excellent (BBC America) Killing Eve series which I saw some weeks ago courtesy of Watch Series is starting on Bravo Sunday night.
And still not been on BBC UK yet. Apparently it's on there in the Autumn.

Hinterland comes up in a couple of my Netflix lists so I'll likely get around to it.

I'm been watching more Netflix lately. I really enjoyed Mossad and an Indian production called "Sacred Games which was super.

Very good show. Very similar to Shetland.

They just had a football themed story in Dicte. As usual, on pitch action wasn't in the least bit realistic. Not sure about the "two players required" for match fixing theory either.

Another Swedish series - Blue Eyes.
Available on channel 4 as well as here There are ad breaks on the C4 site but some of the subtitles on the other source are not always good.

Your choice...ad breaks or no breaks but inferior subs.

Dicte was worth sticking with by the way, but Blue Eyes is hard hitting.
