    I dont watch much regular tv but since getting a Kodi box I have been smashing the box sets.

    Im really into Vikings at the moment but nearly finished it so looking for some recommendations.

    Ok ere we go:

    Travellers:excellent take on time travel
    Stranger Things: Spooky mix of Xfiles and Goonies
    House of Cards: Kevin Spacey at his best
    Newsroom: Series 1 is the best TV I have seen for years.
    Designated Survivor: huge conspiracy against US government, good plot (pun intended)
    Expanse: Gritty space drama.

    Not sure if you can get them on the Kodi, enjoy.

    Thanks for that, started to get worried there was nothing left ha

    Stranger things was ace, loved the old school feel to it.

    House of cards is brilliant

    All above well worth watching, but personally won't approve if using a fully loaded Kodi.

    all Netflix, except HBO's newsroom which should be on Sky.

    I'm in the middle of getting rid of Sky as we don't use it. Getting rid of the TV licence too.

    I tend to download some bits before I come offshore to watch though. Here's my list of whats worth watching;

    Crazy ex girlfriend
    Orange is the new black
    mad dogs
    man in the high castle
    sneaky pete
    startup
    extant
    brain dead
    sons of anarchy
    orphan black
    sense8
    breaking bad
    narcos
    walking dead
    Santa Clarita diet
    Girl Boss
    3% (really really enjoyed this one)
    continuum

    Better get rid of the TV as well you can still get fined unless you can prove it does not receive same with the pc

    Not true buddy.

    If you do not watch TV live as its broadcast (including C4/ITV players watching at the time of broadcast), and do not record live tv you do not need a licence.
    You can use your TV to watch prerecorded stuff and stream, with one exception.

    You do need a licence to watch ANY BBC Iplayer content, whether it is at the time of broadcast or not.

    As we do not have any antenna in the property and do not watch anything at time of broadcast we are in the clear to do without the licence.
    The only loss in my eyes is Dragons Den and the Apprentice...

    I'll maybe have to just watch them on the rigs!

    with regards to proving it, we can prove if we ever needed or wanted to that we have no dish or antenna connection.

    That is when I disconnect the dish and cancel everything in the next few weeks.

    We've watched about 1 hour of Sky in the last month between us, its all Youtube, Disney life, Amazon prime and Netflix.
    Even the 5 year old just uses his fire stick tv.

    I'm waiting till the end of the final season to watch it same as I did with breaking bad and sons.

    I hate having to wait for a new season when I could binge it lol

    I watch almost no TV but I did like Spartacus a lot. Borderline soft porn and ultra violence.
    Ideal.
    I got into Vikings but got bored - we almost don't need a TV TBH.

    Ha! I saw a fair few episodes of Spartacus and you're totally right, porn! I think it was the same production company that did the new Ash vs Evil Dead too.

    I just started watching American Gods on Amazon prime. It's a bit full on, but could be a real winner.
