If you have a good internet connection some  software I have seendiscovered makes for some good tv all free .
one addon which has a logo which led me to believe it was bbc world news only to find it was literally world newsfor  any country any language !
Movies (old and new)Documentaries ,live tv sport you name it !

The software is called kodi and this is the framework for the addons which you can get by installing fusion (see youtube videos).
Sample of addons below -each one opens up a whole new world.

I saw my nephews 2 boys using the Amazon fire tv they got for xmas and treated myself to one immediately. I now realise the Kodi can be downloaded to any android tablet,or pc/laptop en windows mac or linux.

I agree -a fantastic bit of software  and no monthly fee for sports

Yep Kodi seems to be a user friendly version of xbmc which has been around in Linux systems for years
