Late next year sometime.

You can purchase a Netflix compatible blu-ray player etc to watch it on the tv if you want. Well worth it imo.

It might not be that long a wait, cos they got season 5a into the UK shops quite fast imo.

Do you have a playstation or xbox? Both of those have Netflix apps - we watch through our playstation and it's really good quality.

How can you wait?! Can you not just cable your laptop up to the TV like I do with 4OD, Channel 5OD etc?

All you need is one cable – a HDMI cable, one end plugged into your laptop and one end plugged into your TV. Simple.
You can get a HDMI cable for a few pounds on eBay.

I second the console option! I bought a 2nd hand PS3 and it came with all the cables, plug in in and away you go. I watch Netflix, iplayer and 4OD on it. I'm trialling Lovefilm on it at the moment as well (which is just so inferior to Netflix for using) and can stream films from my laptop to it, to watch on the TV (which is actually really easy to do). I've stopped watching normal TV since I got it!

then if I do get really bored I can play games on it

(I tried the HMDI thing but it stopped working for me but its a good option if you have a compatible laptop!)

HDMI cable from your laptop/computer into your TV? It's what I do all the time.

My Smart TV has a Netflix app (along with BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5) and the XBOX also has one (and some of the others), so depending on what I'm doing at the time, if I want to watch Netflix it's only a few button presses away on any device. Picture quality is stunningly good, as most of their content is in HD so watching Breaking Bad is always a joy picture quality wise, and even more storyline wise!

Can't wait for Monday to see the new episode!

interesting so, could do it via a ps3, x box 360, or through the cable thing

cable sounds like the cheapest option, but I have asked a few peeps about this, one who tried it and they stated that, the sound still failed to come through on the tv, another technical dude, stated, that you need a seperate lead to run the audio of say a netflix stream through the tv, so that the sound comes out on the tv, from the tv speaker, kinda thing

I've never had an issue with sound linking an HDMI cable from laptop to TV, its designed to take audio as well as video.

Get yourself a lead pronto! and sign up for a free month on netflix while your at it.

This sounds like they were using a VGA cable and not a HDMI cable.
VGA cables will only carry the visual to the television so you’d need to sort out the audio separately. But HDMI should carry visual and audio without a problem. You can get a HDMI cable from some pound shops, give it a go, you’ve got nothing to lose really (apart from a pound!).

I have a laptop that's permanently connected to the TV, I've been torrenting on it daily and watching it through the TV for ages with no problems whatsoever.

It's called product endorsement. Google that term.

I know what product endorsement is declan

it's the actual fact, that if you do use, google, like I did , you will find a number of people, having issues, with getting both the audio and visual to work, when it comes to streaming netflix

cross marketing and deliberate product endorsement is one thing but, software specific hardware, that is un user freindly to a wider market is another

The Walking Dead have set a precedent similar to BB being only available on Netflix. It aired on A&E and a had a decent following, but really took off when they sold a quick release to Netflix and no one else. It gained a massive audience then, has been the first show to gain that size of a fan base while cutting down on piracy, etc. So UK Netflix very sensibly took on BB final episodes for the same reason, they want you to subscribe. And seriously for £8-10 per month, it's worth it, especially as this is where things are going right now.

i agree, but i'm fairly sure i pay £5.99 a month.


i think netflix have announced (tonight) each ep will air at 12 noon for uk netflix people, when it was widely believed to be 3:00 am initially.

Hey Lionel, as I suspected that streaming server collapsed under the weight of too many visitors

Gonna have to fall back on downloading via IRC instead... caught the first 5 minutes and its whetted my appetite for more! Just hope someone uploads it quickly!

great episode though.


tread lightly...
