@sansom - Thanks for the responses.
That answers all my questions for now.
The single and only concern I have is the Disney+ support, the other things are ok for now.
As I wouldn't want to get entrenched in using VTV, and later find out no Display+, so need a second device. Especially getting wife/kids approval for "ease of use".
I have seen previous posts about possible chromecast support, e.g. casting from an android/iphone device to the VTV.
Is this feature being worked on? If so, could we use the Disney+ mobile app to 'cast' to the VTV, even if the VTV does not have its own disney+ app?
Just thinking of other options.
For some reason 3 news can't be recorded or rewatched
Can 3 news be watched via the three ondemand app via VTV?
e.g. say at 8pm in the evening (once kids are in bed), turn on VTV, navigate to Three on demand, and then watch today's news? (that was broadcast at 6pm)
We record 3 news daily with no issues.
You can watch 3 news on demand using the app - they have the last two days of the 6pm news up there - not sure how long after the live show it takes for them to have it available though.
