Netflix cutting 150 jobs, Mainly in the US due to a 200k loss in subscribers, I have to admit I watch more on Amazon now than Netflix and won't miss it when my Sky is turned off.
Agreed, we’ve noticed over the last few months that Amazon prime has really up its game, some great stuff on there at the moment

Was annoyed that Netflix lost the latest Star Trek shows because Paramount were putting them on their own streaming service but I find myself scrolling through and nothing takes my fancy, The old TV shows and films I can watch on other free to air channels and their new stuff is a bit pants.

I rather liked Russ Abbot's nonsense.
He seems really forgotten now but he was drawing in massive ratings in the 80's and was a staple of Saturday evening entertainment on BBC1.

And just as popular when he was on ITV too.

Saw him live with the Black Abbots, back in the day. A very funny man.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
The Bill could be back with a new series.
UKTV are in negotiations to bring back the Police drama that was originally made between 1983 until 2010.

Production could be scheduled later this year.

As an avid fan of the programme, (Currently on series 22 of 26 on UKTVplay) I've heard that the series will be called "Sun Hill" with June Ackland, Jim Carver and Tony Stamp working at the station with new recruits.

F1 and the cricket. A great way to waste a Sunday afternoon! Though not too great when it rained.
