I bought an Amazon Fire TV stick.

As long as you're not watching free to air TV on it.

Moschops - 05 Jan 2019 10:40:25 (#8 of 29)

Or using iPlayer on your phone/computer

But knock yourself out on endless episodes of the grand tour.

When I stopped paying my tv licence they sent me a letter with a load of block capital bolded words on it like the front page of the Express. Halfway down the page there was no text just a white space with a mock court stamp on it and a space for a signature that hadn't been filled in. Then underneath that in red block capitals was a threat that the next time they sent it there would be a signature and they would take me to court.

On the other side of the page was a list of ways to pay and then a huge fucking signature from some guy who claimed to be the local compliance officer or something, seriously his signature was almost a third of the page in height.

I sent it back with a legal challenge I knocked up in about five minutes and they soon backed down. They down like having the tables turned on them.

Ooh, you're so hard.

You made them an offer they couldn't understand?

Rendered - 05 Jan 2019 10:49:09 (#13 of 29)

BAM!

cozzer - 05 Jan 2019 10:52:49 (#14 of 29)

Anyway

<phones in 10 points>

Ooh, you're so hard.

Don’t forget to wash your hands.

I don't really understand not paying the TV licence. It's a bargain, and this stuff isn't free to make. People don't boast about stealing anything else, do they?

What the fuck do you plug your home router into?

You remind me of the bellend who came to fit the broadband in the deco apartment - where do you want your phone, mate? In my pocket mate, where do you want yours, up your arse?

Winner - 05 Jan 2019 11:58:05 (#19 of 29)

Kept telling me I'm paying for it anyway. I couldn't give a shit I'm never going to use it

mememe - 05 Jan 2019 12:09:15 (#20 of 29)

I use mine for international calls, which are free.
