Re: How to Watch Decent UK TV live?

And of course, the other advantage of the sling, unlike the Iplayer, I can watch stuff 1 hour, 1 week or 3 months later. The SKY+ DVR keeps everything I record for as long as I don't delete it. The...

Re: How to Watch Decent UK TV live?

Re: How to Watch Decent UK TV live?

I guess, I'd like to add though, the advantage of Sling can be pretty big.
