|Techies - BBC iPlayer no longer available on my (2014) Sony smart TV|
at 11:46 5 May 2021
A complete pain. Apparently I now need some kind of stick or set-top box to watch? Can't have the latter tho as TV is hanging on kitchen wall with nowhere underneath to place one. Two USB slots available for some small stick to connect to tho, it could rest on the soundbar just underneath (already have an ext HDD there for recordings).
Something which would also enable me to watch ITV hub would be a bonus (it's never been available on Sony TVs & the number of apps I can now get on it is down to 24, which is poor imho & puts me off buying another Sony TV in future).
Any recommendations please? Tia if you can help.

And *pleeeeease* don't let this go to pens either - mutt has spoken, says he's gonna pack his dinner bowl & leave home if I don't get him out on walkies in the next 15 mins ...

"We must do things with a bit of class now." Translation - 'we didn't do anything with even a bit of class before'?
"If the 18 from Wimbledon don’t turn up, you’ll have to see more, won’t you? I think the new 18 would get more support than the other 18 from our supporters."
A reference to some of us saying "just swap the Wimbledon 18 for the entire U23 team?
"Demolition Man" - love it|!
And Cookie rhymes with Kuqi! :)

Amazing real-life story of Elizabeth Nyamayaro, who was saved from starvation as a child by a local aid worker during a drought in Zimbabwe, which made her determined that one day she too would work for the UN. Incredible journey, related by herself.
Just came across it by chance on BBC World Service in the wee small hours today -
She's also written about it in 'I Am a Girl from Africa' which is getting rave reviews on the Goodreads site.
