Just discovered All 4 has Hill Street Blues and St Elsewhere available. Haven't actually tried playing them yet, but here's hoping...

There is a new David Attenborough doco on Netflix which is pretty amazing. Also the final season of GoT is now available - that's a bit exciting lol

Do you have any issues playing all 4?
I can watch UK based programmes , but if I watch a non UK it doesn’t play.
A workaround from dns4me was to change the clock to utc +0 which works , but I’d like a better fix .
Been waiting 3 weeks on a reply from dns4me.

Also, I can’t get My5 to play, same scenario waiting on an answer.

Special on Netflix - 3/10. IMDb gave it 8/10(1576)

 

SPECIAL is semi-autobiographical (Ryan O'Connell) comedy about a gay man with cerebral palsy in his mid-20s coming of age by starting his first real job, beginning his first adventures in dating, and moving into his first apartment away from his helicopter mother.

 

Ryan O'Connell writes and stars in this supposed comedy based upon his own real experiences. Each episode is approximately 15 minutes long.

 

What can I say - I managed to stomach the first episode. As a gay man myself, it is so cliche it is insulting, especially in today's mostly accepting society. As a retired paediatric nurse who has cared for many children/teens with cerebral palsy, of varying degrees of severity, it is just plain demeaning to a group of people, who through no fault of their own, are born with a disability. Some go on to lead very fore-filling and productive and loving life's, while others require 24 hour care. I certainly do not see them enjoying this show.

 

The main character, Ryan O'Connell, is annoying, self entitled, rude and 'I'm in a double minority so let me make you feel bad about it'. It is just so cringe worthy on so many levels.

 

I gave it 3 for the supporting actors.

 

This show, all one episode, got to me so much I wrote my first IMDb review on it.

 

It sends out all the wrong messages to all the wrong people.

I use dns4me - Usually on an Amazon Fire TV.

 

Noticed some content on all4 wouldnt play on the fire TV. Put in a ticket to dns4me and in the meantime worked out they have some sort on timezone check on some all4 content.

 

Dns4me reported back that was the case as well - There isnt anything they can do about that apparently (and logically that also makes sense I guess).

 

I found this on Getflix in fact which re-enforces the TZ problem ( https://www.getflix.com.au/channels/overview ):

 

Channel4/4od

 

The iOS app can be downloaded with a UK iTunes account. PC/Mac timezone must be set to a UK region, e.g. GMT/London.

 

Also TenPlay in Australia and TVNZ make timezone checks.

 

Don't know about My5 - I have accessed it before - but tried it just now - even with TZ set to London and its popping a non specific error message.

 

Dns4me normally react to support tickets quite quickly. You did report it through their website and the Support ticket system. If you haven't had a reply just pop another note on it.

Thanks for that, I looked at the link you sent, it says for My5 you need to change the region .
I will look into that.

I did follow up with dns4 me a week later ( 6th Apr) still no reply.

Hmm - Tried my 5 today - same program items as yesterday and all working fine. My Samsung TV and windows PC all working great. TZ set to normal NZ TZ.

 

Maybe they (my 5) had some issues yesterday...

Finally got around to finishing Major Crimes. The final season was a bit of a shocker in many ways. The final was a little unbelievable and glued together, but ultimately I enjoyed the series.  Philip Stroh story line could have been developed a bit more, it was pretty good in S6. 

 

Rusty was about the most annoying character in a series I can recall. Whiney and unlikeable. I am unsure if he was written that way...

I just finished Black Summer in Netflix.

 

It really put the anxiety back into watching zombies.

 

I thought one aspect of the ending was a bit dumb, but overall I enjoyed.

A season 4 of "Your pretty face is going to hell" just started, available through alternate sources.

Basically hell is lots of work meetings, and working in cubicles.

I've begun to watch earlier seasons of the American Impractical Jokers. Almost every single episode is packed, especially episode 18.

 

 

 

Honestly some of the best TV I've ever watched. Always makes me laugh!!
