  1. Netflix UK is getting pretty bad lately…
    Far to many BBC series and programs on Netflix UK too, I have already paid for BBC content I don’t want to pay again…
    Been disappointed with the content from Netflix and if it doesn’t improve I will unsubscribe…
    May programs and movies are absolutely appallingly bad…

    1. But is the BBC content available on the BBC TV channels or on iPlayer? Usually it isn’t. Plus, you’re not paying again for BBC content, you’re paying for access to a library. I pay for my local library through council tax and they have books I already own and have paid for. I don’t complain though because it’s very easy to just ignore the things I’ve already paid for and access the other content instead.

      1. I understand your reasoning MaFt but I would rather Netflix UK gave us less BBC content because the vast majority of people will have seen it already on the BBC…
        I’m not saying don’t put any BBC content up just give us less and put more movies, Netflix originals or content from abroad…
        I know we are not paying for it twice in a traditional sense but I don’t like having that amount of BBC content that I did pay for with my license fee and then pay again to access a library of BBC content on Netflix UK that I don’t really want…
        I don’t know if you have ever gone through the amount of BBC content on Netflix UK but it’s an awful lot lol…
