Browse the Watch Online section (or the website in general) and choose a film or TV show to watch instantly.
Click ‘Watch Now’. If the title is available to watch as part of your package, it will start playing immediately. If you’ve chosen a pay-per-view title, you’ll be asked to confirm payment (which will come from the bank account you use to pay your monthly subscription). Once you’ve confirmed payment, the film or TV show will start.
If you want to connect your PC or laptop to your TV (so you can enjoy the film on a bigger screen), go to our Get Connected page. In two easy steps, this handy guide will identify the correct cable you’ll need to connect your laptop or PC to your TV.
Silverlight Player required
Please note: in order to use our streaming service, your PC will need some software called Silverlight. It’s free and easy to install – if Silverlight is not already on your PC when you click ‘Watch Now’, our service will prompt you to install it. Follow the link, complete the installation, and you’ll be watching your chosen title in moments.
