It was Landscape Artist of the Year I wanted it for, lots of wonderful art.  :) I've been semi binge watching it, should have plenty of time left to watch all the episodes once more.  :D

I wrote a rather lengthy reply to this last night, then my battery went flat and I lost it all.  >:(

The gist of it was that the problem I had with the code was resolved when the online chat person sent me a link. Thank you for the warning about the charges, I checked my credit card and nothing has been taken. Have you contacted eBay? Because in effect the vouchers didn't work. Might be worth a try.

No, it was too long after the event.  To be clear, I wasn't subscribing at the time, so it was entering the voucher code that triggered renewed access, and the code was acknowledged and accepted in exactly the same way as the code I had with my first Now TV package.  It wasn't until a few months later that I noticed they were charging my card every month. 

I had lengthy conversations with their customer service people who did seem to be trying to resolve it, but ultimately they refused to refund, claiming there was no record of those vouchers, and there was nothing I could do about it.  If only I had taken those screenshots.

I will say this for NowTV, they do tempting offers when you leave.  And they don't give up easily.

A few months ago they emailed me an offer of a month's Entertainment pass for 1.  I took this as there was a series I wanted to catch up on.  I cancelled when the month was up and they then offered me a further 3 months at half-price.  I accepted that.  It runs out in a few days, so I cancelled it yesterday.  I was offered further reductions but stuck to my guns.

Today I've received an email offering me 3 months for the price of one - that's 2.64 a month.  I won't notice that, so they've got me again!  I'll be sure to keep all the correspondence and screenshots though.  At this rate I'll gradually claw back the money they conned charged me.  ;)

Great to hear you've got such great deals SG  :D At those sort of prices I might renew when Portrait Artist of the year comes on, will make sure I take a screenshot if and when I renew!

Must admit the Now TV stick gives me better playback that the Firestick. Fast forwarding and rewinding is very straightforward, no buffering when I get to the place I want. It's actually against my principles to pay for any TV but I was happy to make an exception for this one programme, if I work it out as cost per episode it's very little. Hours of enjoyment.  :D
