    NOW TV vs Virgin Media/broadcast (Sky Sports HD)

    Looks like these two services are pretty much the same in price, although I can get NOW TV Sky Sports HD for around £36 per month, as well as a £30 cashback so seems worth it. My hopes: NOW TV HD seems like it is broadcast in 1080p rather than 1080i from Virgin, indicating a better picture...

    Netflix though Sony TV or Virgin V6

    Both are recommended, is there a best one? Have ordered a Sony 43XH8505, just wondering if there will be a big difference. We dont have 4K Netflix, is that worth it or is the upscaling on the TV good enough for home (not sat too close to the TV) use. Thanks
