I’m a student, but I’m a lucky student who still lives at home where my parents pay for my TV licence – that’s not to say I don’t make use of online catch up TV – if I didn’t, I would spend my nights bored stiff.
I’m also lucky in the sense that my brother lets me use his Netflix subscription. I don’t know if id necessarily pay for Netflix myself – I’m not totally bought on the idea, or the idea of LoveFilm (not that I’ve ever gave it a try), but for me there’s only a limited amount of things that appeal to me on it – I think the deal breaker was when I realised it didn’t have The OC on it.
BUT – I’m 100% sold on the idea of BBC iplayer and all the others like that. I think having these catch up things online is the best thing to happen since sliced bread. Thanks to the genius invention I don’t have to cry over the episodes of Masterchef I’ve missed.
