    Nothing but praise from the All4 service. Great choice, particularly for foreign drama. More programmes on All4 online than the telly version. Moreover, it does not freeze and drop out like the Amazon thing. Particularly bad on sports broadcasts – uncannily always does it just as the game, usually tennis, is hitting a vital moment!

    No problem having more than one stick you will need to connect and enter password for WiFi and log into your Amazon account, set up is the same as your first stick but all the apps you have downloaded to your first stick will be in your ‘cloud’  and will need to be downloaded to your new stick, then you will have the apps on both sticks.

    Reading this thread I thought I’d look to see how old my new LG OLED 55” TV is and I’d be blown over by a feather it’s one year and one week old today with just four years and fifty one weeks guarantee left from RicherSounds.

    It still seems like its still brand new to me and still smitten by the picture quality more so with Prime 4K what there is of it but looking forward to binging “Vigil” on the BBC iPlayer in 4K when the series finishes.

    Although the TV was expensive it was off set by money normally reserved for going away last year when we were imprisoned in our homes and our old Pani 42” LED while still working fine was demoted to the other half’s arts studio / bedroom.

    They don’t want you skipping the ads, Mike. It’s by design.

    Both All4 and ITV Hub offer a subscription service that is advertising  free, £3.99 a month each. Not anything I would pay for though.

    That’s why I would recommend not throwing your old Humax recorder away.

    . Chris my old humax box was freezing etc I had many years out of it I’m glad you had your OLED from richer sounds I have one 5 miles away in Leicestershire the 5 year warranty is a bonus as it seems OLED suffer from screen burn going by the many on eBay ! Have you got freeview play on your OLED I wonder with that you can skip the adverts ? I’m not sure whether to buy another fire stick for the lounge or have new tv for the lounge but I wonder for normal viewing I would see much improvement in picture from my old 10 year old Samsung ? I always watch in HD freeview never SD except on fire stick in bedroom

    Mike, do you have adverts in the films when watching on ALL4 or is it just at the beginning?

    It was one advert at beginning and then just one advert in break so can’t complain I’m thinking about new 50 inch nanocell LG tv or fire stick for lounge?
