There isn't an app on the Apple TV but the Comcast sub gives you access to AMC but you have to access via a web browser. Let's you go full screen though so it's ok, I watched Mad Men last night on it.

Looks like they've been cracking down on rentals on that site now - most of them are trade only :(

A service like Unblock-Us is a DNS service so you don't lose any speed like you do with a VPN (it's not private though). What's your sync speed, ~5Mbit? If so you should be able to stream pretty well (we have 4.5Mbit and it works well) - you can't do much else online while you're streaming though. To get a Comcast login go to and sign up and you should find someone there who has a login for rent. Comcast XFinity is pretty good and I pay US$10 per month.

might have to look at the comcast thingo Big... how do you go about that? I have looked into a VPN, but i have a crappy 500Kbs connection so might be out of my reach for nice streaming. Netflix works great though.

Pretty sure I have access to the History channel through my Apple TV - set to US locale. Not sure if it's free though or part of the Comcast thing

Yeah I used DVD fab too but do't know of anything else. I get Netflix & Hulu plus through Unbluck as well. If I could have access to Discovery, Nat Geo & History, I'd be in heaven!

I have Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU (US rentals) and have a Comcast login which gives me HBO Go, ESPN plus a bunch of other channels including AMC, TBS. Use Unblock-Us DNS service to get US content and enable region hopping for Netflix. All up costs me about 40 bucks a month (excluding rentals) and I haven't come across anything I can't get. Just looking for the best ripping software for Bluray/DVD to back my physical media up. Had DVD Fab but it's now out of date.

We already have Netflix, Spotify, hulu etc, but we're thinking of ditching Foxtel after I get laid off to save money - and I need my documentaries lol. Proudly havent downloaded a movie or song in years! Though there is the DIY Video Ezy route for Blurays

I haven't decided on what i'm doing in regards to downloading yet. Certainly am not getting any recent movies though.

I read an article about the aussie piracy of Grand Budapest Hotel and its suggested that we would only have to pay maybe a $15 fine, rather than $1000's as has been reported.

im thinking of going 100% legit... SHOCK HORROR... except for the ahem movie types
Mon Apr 13, 2015 4:32 pm
ANy of you guys used a seedbox? Thinking I might need to head that way for my downloads the way things are going.....not sure if a VPN will be strong enough security the way the govt is heading

I'm actually pretty doubtful they will sell, especially the pinball as I'll have $6,000 on it. If they don't sell the pinball is coming and the arcade machine will be gutted and I'll just do a new cab after the move. Maybe a bit more of a sensible size :mrgreen:

Thu Apr 09, 2015 11:18 am
It is a bit sad but on the upside I'll have new projects to do when we move! I've cloned the hard drives so I won't have to worry about dicking around with the software setup again! We want pics Heath!

Garage sale this weekend, seeing if the arcade machine and pinball machine will sell :( BUT if they do money is straight into a holding account so I can replace them once we're moved and settled.
