Streaming PS4
« on: January 5, 2019, 08:41:11 PM »
Hi guys, just wondering if any of you watch TV series through a PS4, want to get into game of thrones with the Mrs but cant really find anyway of watching it without it costing a wedge. Any suggestions?

Oh and happy new year :)

Not without paying for Netflix or Prime, I think.  You can always torrent the shows, copy them to a USB and play that through the PS4.  But I dunno if there's a way of accessing content directly through the PS4 itself.

If you can cast to your ps4 then you could install one of the movie/tv apps onto your phone.If that isn't an option get yourself a cheap box or a firestick.

Or lap top and hdmi.

If you're arsed, the first couple of series can always be found in almost any charity shop for a couple of quid nowadays. That's how we got series 1-4.

PS4 wise, the only thing you will find GoT on is the Now TV app which requires a sub - they usually have good offers on though for the Entertainment pack and you can then cancel it.

Alternatively, if you know anyone with Sky, they might be eligible for free Sky Go Extra by signing up to Sky VIP programme (free to do). This then gives them 4 logins for Sky which you can then use one on the PS4.

If she is the type to binge, could you get HBO Now/HBO Go for a month? You may even be able to get a free trial. I'm sure they have an app available.

Donít think the full series is on NowTV  :-\

Can only see season 7
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Not exactly what you want perhaps but my PC has Universal Media Server installed and it streams local content perfectly to the PS4's Media Player app

I used to subscribe to a VOD provider that used Plex which you can get on PS4. Paid about £40 for a year and there was thousands upon thousands of box sets and movies that you could watch. There's plenty of similar providers out there.

I use cyberflix with real debrid myself but I know one VOD provider that is less than £20 for a years sub.

This

Although I use 'Serviio' Media server which is absolutely brilliant for streaming to PS4.  Install Serviio (its free) on your PC/Laptop and point it to where your TV shows/Films are stored.  I get everything I need through Torrents and a VPN.

Like Tone says just fire up your Media player on the PS4.  Connect to Serviio and stream away

Ooh thanks for recommending this mate. I've had problems with Universal Media Server - sod's law after I just recommended it!

So got Serviio now and it's running like a dream!

Edit: might even spring for the Pro version, but a two week trial is pretty fair!

Does anyone know if Now TV will allow me to watch the final series of GoT via streaming when it comes on?

Sorry if that sounds like a stupid question, but a bit of Googling isn't really helping me with the answer. With Now TV I still can't tell if any of the following apply:

1. The ability to watch live TV Sky channels via streaming

2. The ability to watch via streaming the TV shows being shown currently on Sky channels, at any time if your choosing

3. Some sort of compromised combination of the above where some TV shows are available (e.g. Sky's own British stuff) and some are not (high profile US shows bought in).

But is Atlantic the live stream? As in, if you wanted to watch GoT you'd have to be there at 9pm watching, ready to go?

Would the box sets contain the current series?

If you clicked the link you would see that the answer to the 1st 2 questions is yes,the Monday 2am airing and the 9pm,I think they also air it on Fridays as well,not sure if Season 8 will be part of the box set,but I think it will be in catch up.
