      tflix….. been hearing some good things about it. Waiting to get a spare moment to binge it.

      Someone at work told me I need to watch it. It can wait until I finish The Wire.

      I signed up to a free trial of Presto a month ago, haven’t watched anything on it yet :P

        Anyone watch Stranger Things on Netflix….. been hearing some good things about it. Waiting to get a spare moment to binge it.

        Binged the whole 8 hours in one go. Started watching it a second time round but just an episode every few days now.

        Also Netflix apparently has the rights to do a StarTrek tv series or something like that. Should be good.

          So watch all Stranger Things over the weekend. Not bad. Don’t think it was quite as good as it was hyped up to be, but I still liked it.
          Second season of Between is up now, so will give it another go.

            I’ve watched the first three eps of Stranger Things and have really enjoyed it so far.

            I will finally get connected to NBN on Wednesday so I’ll be able to watch online streaming services at will without running out of a monthly internet quota.

              Stranger Things was amazing. Loved its homage to 70s and 80s movies.

                Stranger Things rocked my world!

                Also @stum91 *whispers* You can actually Google ‘Presto 6 month codes’ and indeed find free codes for 6 months….

                I may have been doing this for the past year

                  Presto is constantly free. In the final month of your free month, you can add a new promo code (for 1, 2, 3 or 6 months depending on where you got it). Can only stack a new code in your final month, so need to remember to do it, but you never need to pay. I mean, the codes are on the back of every supermarket receipt…

                  Because, apparently, Foxtel add Presto subscribers to their total subscribers. When they say they have 3 million subscribers, 200,000 Presto users that never pay helps boosts their stats for Foxtel subscribers, so they’re happy with that arrangement.

                              Somewhat related, anyone subscribed to youtube red? I’m currently on a 3 month trial

                              The exclusive content is rubbish/nonexistent but I like the idea of supporting the channels I watch without having to deal with adverts. Having access to google music is useful too.

                                Haha ended up getting a code on a Big W receipt … still didnt work. I had to send it to them to get them to apply it. Any way flicked through it, and I think if it was a free I wouldnt have it. Pretty meh.

                                  Youtube red is the one that supports the content right?

                                  @micdaman Oh I know what you mean, personally I enjoy it mostly for the 80’s/90’s movies and the Disney stuff

                                  I’d still love to find a VPN that works with Netflix :/ I’m sure if I wasn’t so lazy I could search around

                                      I’ve found a few that work intermittently, basically a few days working, a few days off
                                      You have to shoot off an email to your provider, and they will give you a new address/DNS

                                      So yeah that’s pretty much getting a big EHHHHHH from me

                                      I think I’ll just go back to doing what I did before Netflix/Hulu

                                          Neither did I if I’m honest, but it certainly slowed down a LOT

                                          I’d flick through the US Netflix, and 9/10 times I’d find a movie, or a doco to fill up my time

                                          Now I’m back to sitting here, and scanning sites like Jb Hifi to see what movies are being released soon, and then heading off to my fave place to see if they are available

                                            Netflix still works for me on PS4 using Unotelly. Xbox is a no-go, though, no matter what I do.

                                                Yeah I have the 4k Netflix plan. It pretty much just opens up 4k for a bunch of shows like all the new netflix original stuff. And as per normal it will only stream as good as your Internet allows. So you could be watching a 4k show in SD at times if you have patchy Internet.

                                                  Welp, Presto is no more (come January). Foxtel bought the remaining shares to it and are shutting it down.

                                                    PS my new Panasonic TV has a Netflix button on the remote… also saw one on my mates Hisense as well… although convenient it sucks cos it means I can’t get a stan app on the TV. [cry]
