    Yes with Netflix there is no contract and you can cancel anytime, you do have to set up an account and authorise ongoing monthly payments but these can be cancelled at anytime., there is also no adverts.

    There’s currently 143 films on BBC iPlayer to suit quite a wide range of tastes, are you looking under the film tab?

    Captain Phillips and 3 ‘carry on’ films are on iTV Hub, Captain Phillips, Tom Hanks, is a very good film and worth a watch if you’ve not seen it expires in 3 days though. Quite a few on my5 as well.

    I don’t really know, we have Sky Movies, Netflix and Disney+ so tend not to watch free ones, Captain Phillips on ITV Hub is good though, it expires today so last chance.

    You don’t need to worry so much these days with OLED regarding screen burn as the newer tv’s have more resilience than sets built before 2018.

    I have a Panasonic 2019 model 65″ GZ950 OLED since June last year and just clocked over 6000 hrs and no sign of any screenburn. The panasonic does a minor 10 minute screenwash every time it’s on for more than 1-1/2 hrs and every 1000hrs does a major 80 min wash. I watch plenty of BBC24hr news which has static images on and no problem so far. The tv is on from 8am-11pm most days but it has never been used for gaming which is bad for OLEDs.

    Good morning Mike…

    I have a not-smart/dumb TV in an upstairs bedroom.

    It has a HDMI port/socket.

    I bought a Roku Express dongle.

    Now that Dumb TV has: iPlayer, all4, Netflix, Amazon prime, Now TV, ITV hub, Sky news, and a choice of hundreds of other free ( ana few pay) channels.

    For live TV it has iPlayer, sky news and all slightly delayed catch up services.

    All for the cost of the Roku stick. (£29.99)

    Apologies to you Mike if this is irrelevant or unwanted.

    My apologies to everyone else for ‘ grandma/suck eggs syndrome’.

    That’s all folks.
