Just finished the first two seasons of Fargo on Netflix. Annoying/odd that the third one is on Neon!



S3 of Fargo hasnt quite finished.  S2 appeared on Netflix just before S3 started airing in the US.  I dont imagine S3 will appear on Netflix until next year....

scuwp: Got it free for a year also. I think at that price point it's about right. Have looked through the sparse catalogue twice in 2 months and watched exactly zero. $20 puts it as one of the most expensive options and no way would I pay even half that.


Really? You didn't check out Westworld?  It's the best show I've seen in ages, finished it tonight.  I'd seriously recommend it, big Blade runner fan.  I'd love to holiday in Westworld.


Will continue on with Girl Friend Experience (I was one of about 3 people in the world that actually liked the Stephen Soderbergh film of the same name that the series is modeled on) and will commence Fargo season 3 this weekend.  


Rewatched GoT season 6 in anticipation of season 7 next month and also watched all of season 2 of Ballers (guilty pleasure, reminds me of Entourage).


I've heard taboo is great but haven't watched it.  Same with Penny Dreadful, meant to be good as well. 


Westworld trailer:







Penny Dreadful was great.  Really dark.  Taboo is in a similar vein but the characters didnt seem to be as appealing - I found it a much harder watch.

Netflix doesn't have first screening rights so you have to wait for the period set out to when they can show it.


A lot of Netflix content is second screening rights, if they had to pay for first screening rights if they could get them then it would be way more than $15 a month

Neon is crap. Just got it for 12 months free as well. .. it's no better than the sky on demand. Lacks decent watchable material

Yeah, SD in 2017 and for $20 a month? I wouldn't even bother if it was free.

Like other I have just been offered a free year, from my ISP



I'll get the APK and load it onto my Fire TV stick and see how things go from there.

Let me know how it goes. Does Neon have a proper android TV app (designed for remote)?. If so I will have a go at getting it onto my fireTV stick and my Fire TV (last generation .264 only devices)




Yeah, SD in 2017 

They recently added HD:


"A number of NEON titles are available to stream in HD."

Still, they are a full technology generation behind their competitors..
