Series 56 and 57 of HIGNFY are both available on the platform currently.


When they have series that are older than the repeats on Dave, I'll be interested Smile

I’d love it if they could get old series of Have I Got News for You, the kind of thing that doesn’t warrant a commercial release and hasn’t been repeated on TV in years (Dave don’t go very far back with their repeats now). I know they’re all on Dailymotion but they have pretty ropey quality.


The Very Best of HIGNFY DVD they released shortly before Angus was fired is still my favourite DVD as it has hours of highlights in chronological order with full, uninterrupted commentary from Ian & Paul.

I imagine Hat Trick doesn't see commercial value in the older HIGNFY episodes.

Channel 4 has signed up to provide programmes for the streaming service BritBox, the Guardian understands, meaning shows from all the UK’s main television channels will be available through one catch-up outlet for the first time.

I'm not impressed with Britbox. As far as I can tell the only difference will be no ads.

Significant extra historic content though, and technically far superior than ITV HUB, ALL4 etc.
DeMarkay and London Lite gave kudos

A lack of platform availability kills it for me at launch. I have Sky Q, Android TV and a PS4 connected to my TV and it's available on none of them. Not even Chromecast functionality in the app.

It is however the sort of subscription I would consider getting to share with other family members. Are there any details about number of concurrent users/profiles?
