What’s Dplay TV app all about?? 📺❤️💋

I know it’s been sometime and no it isn’t an April Fools but I felt in this time of quarantine to talk about a go to app that I use for great TV 📺 😊 think it could be needed!

https://www.dplay.co.uk is a website I use on my iPad however the app can be downloaded from Google Play Store or Apple Store.

As a lover of Crime Shows, Quest Red is a go to channel it’s aired some fantastic shows, although late on a Saturday night and because I’ve watched in bed, ended up falling asleep! Not because of the shows though, more because I’m comfy in bed.

There is a fantastic range of programs for you to watch. It’s broken down by channel, Quest, Really, Quest Red, Food Network, DMAX and HGTV or genre and finally show. It also highlights featured, box sets, most popular, new, what’s leaving soon and finally an A-Z.

The Leaving Soon I find very handy to click on before the others to make sure I don’t miss out.

I know BBC iplayer or the ITV Hub will be popular for most people but I just wanted to highlight this little gem 💎 The About Us section on the site has all details of the channels and what number on the different platforms.

Have you used https://www.dplay.co.uk before? What’s your go to genre? I love to know just drop me a comment

Thanks for reading I know my Sunday Updates are regular I will try to get more on track with other posts 😍

TV Addict – Missing In Action but I’m back!📺❤️💋

So August hasn’t been a great month blog wise, other than the Sunday update I haven’t really posted. Due to a couple of factors but most notably I haven’t had the motivation to do it. Honestly I’ve been in 2 minds for most of August to either not renew my plan on 1st September and call it quits or go self hosted.

Whilst I’ve not gone self hosted I have decided to renew my WordPress business plan for another year and will commit to posting twice per week, 1 of which will be the Sunday update as people seem to like that (I hope).

I think if I was going to go self hosted personally I would want to be able commit some more time to it and that is something I don’t really have at this present time. For those that don’t know, I work full and part time and have a gorgeous pooch 🐶 who demands my attention and have to somehow squeeze some of this great TV 📺 in that I love to talk about.

I’ve enjoyed the journey this last year and want to continue with that for sure now, feeling refreshed I hope you continue along with me especially as a new TV season is about to start with lots of exciting shows 😊

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

Channel changes on Sky happening on 1st May 📺❤️💋

If you follow some of your favourite channels on Twitter you may have seen tweets in regards to channel changes from Tuesday 1st May 2018. These changes only affect the Sky platform so if you watch via Virgin, Now or Freeview than you are not affected it is only on Sky that this is happening.

So why is it happening you ask? According to the Sky website this change is to facilitate a new way of listing channels on the TV Guide. There’s a handy guide on the Sky Guide but the main changes are the following:

  • Documentary channels will move up the guide
  • A new section created for +1 channels
  • Duplicated HD/SD channels will move to a new section

Now as you can imagine the list of all channels is quite extensive so courtesy of the Sky website here’s the link to their handy guide Sky TV Changes which has all the changes.

As mentioned takes affect from 1st May 2018 and will automatically be updated on your TV Guide.

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

The Blogging Journey So Far – 6 Months Today

 

Today 6 months ago I made the decision to go log onto WordPress and set up a blog. After a long while mull it over I bit the bullet and went for it and shared the info with the Reality TV groups I’m in and they were very supportive.

Whilst I set up my page on 29th July 2017 I didn’t actually really get into doing posts for a couple of weeks and since then I post at least once a week. I have no set Schedule mainly because I work Full and Part Time so it can be when I get the time. I get really pleased with every like, comment and follow mainly because I understand that my posts are niche and TV on the different platforms is not for everyone.

So how have I been doing? Well I’m just enjoying the experience more than the stats but this is me so far:

It’s nice to see the growth in the 6 months and amazes me when I get those Wordpress notifications to let me know you are all interacting.

Where do I see me going? I have no idea I’m just enjoying writing about what I love sharing my Sunday Updates and interacting on Twitter with all you lovely people.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to your continued support as I continue on this blogging journey!

January Blues 😞

E655FF7C-659A-4690-9367-356F3A445C15

Every January I have always got a little sad, always leaving and coming home in the dark, never want to really leave the house. I would hibernate for the whole of winter if I could, I’m very much a Sun ☀️ Girl 😍

For a number of years now I have taken advantage of my parents renting an apartment in Playa Las Americas, Tenerife and got cheap flights. It’s nice to go see them for sure especially as recent years it’s gotten a longer stay for them. For me it’s a bit of relaxation and sun ☀️ but more so the weather makes me a lot happy for my birthday 🎂 than the usually miserable weather in the UK 🇬🇧

So next Tuesday I will make my trip from Hull to East Midlands (which gives me anxiety no end as don’t like driving in the dark 5am start 😫) for the few days of warmth until I return on Saturday evening. It may only be a couple of days but I love the feel of that Sun and I can’t wait.

In preparation I have been trying to watch all the programs on my planner so I have room to record everything! Whilst the apartment has the standard UK Channels and some Sky Channels and my Dad will watch most things with me ( I did get him into the Real Housewives after all!) my Mum is different, she is very set in her ways with her shows and I have to endure watching Emmerdale and Coronation Street. 📺

I have had my hair chopped as seen above getting rid of some of my long thick locks which is needed as it is so nice and warm. Today I’m hoping to have the boarding passes printed and at the weekend pack my case. I’m always very last minute with this, probably because I can always steal my Mum’s stuff even though she is petite we do take the same size thankfully. Plus the bonus of them being there for 3 months is that toiletries etc are already there so that is also 1 less think to think about.💁‍♀️

So next week if I’m a bit MIA from Twitter and the blog it’s because I’m sunning myself and enjoying beer!

Thanks for reading and Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

Fangirling Moments 📺❤️💋

I’m a huge Twitter fan and couldn’t think of another platform that allows me to interact more with my TV 📺 obsessions 😍 we follow all our faves on the platform and whilst it’s not always a genuine account those with that infamous blue tick are verified as true and correct.

Imagine my excitement this last week that I have had some true fangirling moments starting with my tweet about Ransom (see post here: Ransom is Coming for Season 2) not only did my tweet get a great response but one of the stars of the show liked, retweeted and followed me. How fantastic I was over the moon 🌛and it gives you such a boost when you get interactions like this. 🤗

My 2nd exciting fangirl moment was relating to another show that I have written about, The Eleven which aired last year on Crime + Investigation channel, see that post here Crime + Investigation – New Show The Eleven   a key person involved in the show Lise Olsen, retweeted my tweet commending the show. 👏🏻 It truly is an eye opener if you get a chance to watch.

Lastly I have wrote about Silent Witness and my excitement of it being back (Silent Witness is back) and have to applaud Emilia Fox and Liz Carr on their interactions with fans. They have totally made some true fangirling moments for Katie and I this week, check out Katie’s blog here Life Withh KT Kinnes.

Have you had some fan girl moments on Twitter or any other platform I would love to know what? How did it make you feel? I know I was totally boosted but they likes, retweets and comments it’s just a fantastic feeling 😊

Hope you keep on checking my blog and here’s to more Twitter fangirling moments, Happy Viewing All 📺❤️💋

How do I watch great British Shows outside of UK? 📺❤️💋

 

When I started my blog last year I only ever thought of a UK audience, understandable really as I’m based in East Yorkshire, UK. However I do know that our great British Shows have a huge audience outside of the UK so how do they get there fix?

Well there is some great streaming services that they can use just ask my friend Pami in Cali! She is currently abandoning all housework to binge watch some great shows on Britbox and Acorn TV.

Between these 2 streaming services they can watch Coronation Street, EastEnders along with Silent Witness and Vera there is such a variety between these 2 services. Starting from $4.99 per month you can get your fix very easily and newer British Shows seem to be added relatively quickly.

So if you follow my Sunday Update and like the sound of the new BBC & ITV dramas you can be sure that US peeps will find them on 1 of these 2 services. I’d love to know if any of the US followers have used either service? Drop me a comment below.

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋
