Treated ourselves to a new tv linked to the internet and went to youtube,watched old episodes of Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock presents, and lots more stuff i remember from years ago including the fantastic Central documentary series Men who killed Kennedy.It just seems to me any episode of any series is available whenever you want.
Only had this device a couple of weeks, still getting the hang of it, but enjoying this (new to me) technology.
Anyone else here doing the same? perhaps i'm just playing catch-up.

I have Blu ray player with smart functions and You Tube……we can while away hours searching for various old tv programmes.

'Try 'KIzzy'...try 'God's Wonderful Railway'...Try 'Pipkins..' etc, etc, etc

Very chuffed to find the complete ‘All New Alexei Sayle Show’ out there recently.

We updated to a smart TV from the January sales...very glad we did and have watched many series on Netflix. Best thing we ever did. We went for a Sony and the HD is so much better than what we had with our old Toshiba - at least not everyone has been tangoed with the new one. (I had a Toshiba for 20 years, so when we went for a flatscreen, I insisted on it for our next TV - I didn't realise they had gone so down hill...)

Kizzy? God's Wonderful Railway? Where???

[Edit - just found Kizzy...that's my evening viewing sorted then!]

Funnily enough, I have always thought Toshiba were good quality TV’s but talking to a chap from a well-known independent discount audio-visual retailer the other day it seems they are not very good at all.

Mine is an LG and the picture is great and sound through the tv speakers alone is excellent. Screen is only 32” as we only have a fairly small living room and I am a little concerned that a larger screen will throw up more flaws in the picture quality of archive stuff.

I think you have to be very careful with some of today’s flat-panel screens as it appears the quality can vary dramatically.
