Thanks for your advice. I was coming around to the same conclusion.Don't bother with DVD/BD players for internet streaming (very limited services, out of date/abandoned, slow performance etc), just get an Amazon FireTV stick which is a cheap and effective solution.
If your in the USA then UK streaming services will be restricted or completely off limits, there is an easy way around this bit costs money.
The tv's are really well outfitted for streaming.
And thank you for posting the link. Interesting product for ex-pats and sports fans. The Britbox and Acorn subscription services are well known here (USA). Either one would be great.
