October Viewing On Netflix & NowTV

Ant and I have the same taste in TV programs which makes choosing what to watch, very easy!
Here’s a list of some of our October viewing on Netflix and NowTV.

October Viewing – Netflix

The Good Place

October viewing - The Good Place series on Netflix

We LOVE The Good Place. I’ve always been a fan of Kristen Bell, she just seems down to earth and would probably make a great best friend!
Here’s a bit about it if you haven’t started watching it yet:

When Eleanor Shellstrop finds herself in the afterlife, she’s both relieved and surprised that she’s made it into the Good Place. But it doesn’t take long for Eleanor to realize she’s there by mistake. She hides in plain sight from the Good Place’s architect Michael and his all-knowing assistant Janet. Her seemingly perfect neighbors Tahani and Jianyu and open-hearted soul mate Chidi help her realize that it’s never too late. With the help of her new friends — and a few enemies — Eleanor becomes determined to shed her old way of life in hopes of discovering a new one in the afterlife.

The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory on Netflix

It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for season 11 of The Big Bang Theory to start on Netflix! We missed it when it was on whichever channel it was shown on earlier this year so had to wait for Netflix.
I’m sad that they’re only making one more season.

Chesapeake Shores

Chesapeake Shores on Netflix

KayCee and I love Chesapeake Shores. The others in the family, not so much!
It’s a family drama about a set of 5 siblings which starts out with their mum leaving when they were younger then comes back to the family now they’re all grown up.
They were brought up by their dad and grandmother.
We do get annoyed at the grandmother’s accent, though, I have to say. She tries to do an Irish accent and never quite pulls it off.
It was amusing at first but for some reason, it’s starting to annoy us now!

NowTV In October

The Leftovers

The Leftovers on NowTV

After two per cent of the world’s population disappeared without a trace, those left behind attempt to get on with their lives in a world that has inexplicably changed forever. Acclaimed HBO drama.

We’ve only got 1 season left to watch of The Leftovers and I read that they’re not making any more so I’m hoping it’s finished off properly and we’re not left with a load of unanswered questions!

If you want to watch The Leftovers, you need to get a move on because it’s going off NowTV near the end of the month.

9-1-1

9-1-1 on NowTV

I love Connie Briton and cried when her character, Raynor James, died in Nashville. I was very pleased to see her back on TV in 9-1-1.

She plays a 9-1-1 operator in this series and I love seeing this side of the emergency services in a TV show.
We wait eagerly each week for a new episode. Much the same as we do for the next and last how on my list:

For The People

For The People on NowTV

For The People is a new show from Shondaland and if you’re not familiar with Shondaland, it’s from the creator of one of our favourite ever shows, Grey’s Anatomy.

What We’re Watching On Netflix & NowTV In February

We’re all caught up with Grey’s Anatomy on NowTV and are having to wait for the new episode every Wednesday. It’s the same with Criminal Minds and we only have a couple of episodes of Madam Secretary to catch up on so we had to find something new to watch.

NowTV

Scandal

When we had the full package with Virgin we watched the first 2 seasons of Scandal. We hadn’t known it was available and didn’t get to see any other season before it was taken off.

We both really enjoyed it so we were pleased to see the box sets available on NowTV.

Netflix

Our number one choice on Netflix at the moment has to be Friends. I wrote about how I had the box set for Christmas then all 10 seasons became available on Netflix!
We’re on season 4 four now and usually manage to watch a couple of episodes each night.

Friends

The OA

I watched the first episode of The OA the other day. It’s totally my kind of show and I’m looking forward to the next episode.

Netflix The OA

Stranger Things

I watched season 1 of Stranger Things last year without Ant for some reason. I can’t remember much about it so I’m planning on watching season 1 again before starting season 2. This time I’ll see if Ant wants to watch it with me.

Netflix Stranger Things

Dark

I haven’t started watching Dark yet but I will be doing very soon. It’s been likened to Stranger Things so I’m probably going to like it just as much.

Netflix Dark

If you’re a fan of crime documentaries, A Suffolk Dad has shared his top 5 picks. I’ve added Evil Genius to my list; I can’t wait to start watching it.

Also, Mrs Mummy Harris has some great recommendations for things to watch on Netflix while on maternity leave 🙂

NowTV, Netflix and YouView – The Way We Watch TV Is Changing!

NowTV & Netflix

 

We’ve been Virgin Media customer for around 10 years. When I saw an email from The Money Saving Expert saying that VM prices were set to rise again, I knew we had to start looking elsewhere for our broadband and TV services.

Virgin Media

We were already paying just under £85 for phone, broadband and the Full House TV package and the email said we were likely to be getting a £3.99 a month increase.
I was not prepared to pay nearly £90 a month so Ant and I started checking out the prices of other companies.

EETV and Broadband

After a few hours, we had decided on EETV with broadband.

I phoned VM and gave my 30 days notice to cancel. It was very easy to do and they didn’t give me the hard sell. She did tell me what price they could offer by dropping the TV package but it was still more than EE so I declined and went ahead with the cancellation.

I ordered the EETV to be installed on August 29th and VM was going to be switched off on September 1st. It was going to save us about £50 a month but it did mean I’d lose quite a few of the series I watch and our broadband would be dropping from 200Mb to 72Mb with EE. We decided it was worth it to save all that money. All was well until the following day when VM phoned me to confirm cancellation as they’d been contacted by EE.

Virgin Media

After a short conversation with the man at VM, he gave me an offer we couldn’t refuse! We would be dropped down to the basic TV package and 100Mb broadband. VM would pay our line rental for the year meaning we now have a monthly broadband bill of £21.

£21 for 12 months is amazing, especially as we get the 100Mb broadband. Our service for broadband from VM has always been excellent and we get great speeds here. We’ve had a few problems with the wi-fi dropping out but rebooting the box fixed it. VM are sending us a new box now as well so hopefully we won’t have that problem anymore 🙂 As we both work from home and our business is mainly online, I’m happy to be staying with VM.
I have nothing against EE as we’ve never used them but I was worrying a bit about the change. Not only dropping the speed but I didn’t know how reliable they are.

NowTV

Anyway, we decided that seeing as we were saving so much money, we could afford to buy a YouView box on which we can watch Netflix and we thought NowTV. Once it was installed, we discovered YouView only support the NowTV movies. You can’t watch the entertainment, kids or sports channels. Ant was quite annoyed that this wasn’t made clear before he bought it.

NowTV
We had to nip to Asda last night and pick up a NowTV box. We got one with a 2-month movie pass as I’d already paid upfront for a 6-month entertainment pass.

I have to say that after seeing what’s available on NowTV entertainment and movies, I’m really excited about our new way of watching TV.
If you’d have told me I’d be giving up the Full House TV package I’d have laughed at you! There are so many great shows to watch on NowTV and Netflix, however, that I’m sure I won’t miss any of my other programmes.

Netflix

We’ve been using Netflix for a while now on our TiVo box. There are loads of series we want to watch, including Luke Cage and Daredevil ahead of the new The Defenders show. We’ve watched Jessica Jones and have nearly finished The Iron Fist.

So all in all, although I’ll miss using the TiVo for all my recordings, I’m excited about our new choices 🙂
