@dcdmfan clearly you have never been on the website free to try, 600+ new shows a day and £10. For the record i am not seeking your approval, they are my site rules, they are fair. If people are not happy they simply steer clear. As for standard US practice, welcome to the World Wide Web! I run a wonderful service that takes a tonne of work and money to run, many people are just delighted to pay 33 pence a day!
Remember why I am here, people wanting to watch a show i provide and pay to bring, without paying me.
When I was revving up for Series 5 I weighed several options for watching DM from the UK. I finally settled on BritTV..what a joke...the site crashed a couple of days after I signed up and was out of service for what seemed like forever...I finally gave up and I kissed my money goodbye. I downloaded ExpatShield and had no trouble whatsoever viewing DM. A word to the wise is sufficient...as my mother used to say.....
