Re: Anybody using Kodi to watch BBC and ITV catchup?

Found Kodi was too much faffing around and unreliable feeds so dropped it last year.

I just go direct with ExpressVPN for iPlayer, Netflix USA etc.

Watch most things using APK's though.

Look on the bright side of things. You no longer have to watch that dross team.

I think the Optus deal was 3 years so this is the last season then hopefully Foxtel will have sense enough to win it...

Re: Amazon incoming ...
