All of TV Player's paywall channels including W, GOLD and Alibi are now on the Chromecast.

But in typical TV Player fashion, they hide the fact that all channels are Chromecast compatible and only work via the mobile version of Chrome. (Only tested with Android). The Android and iOS apps are still not compatible. The desktop version will cast the tab, but is prone to stuttering.

Rights issues are still a major issue with TV Player, for example Fire TV still doesn't have the UKTV channels, while EETV doesn't have the Viacom channels.

TV Player Plus is going up £1 to £5.99 from January 1st. Presumably to cover the cost of adding Viacom channels.

Existing customers will have their price frozen for two years.

Not that big a price rise then, is it. I'd still be willing to pay it.
I tried to think of something funny to put here, but I can't think of anything, so you can read this to the end and then realise you have just wasted 10 seconds of your life. You're welcome.

If you buy before Dec 31st, it stays at £4.99 for 2 years.

Trouble is, I'm 15, and through work, I have earned £18 between July and today. (Thank you boss for the lack of work. Razz ) Thanks for the advice regardless.

A 20% rise is pretty significant though £1 rises are pretty standard in pay TV. The annual cost rises from £59.88 to £71.88, which if it were sold on that basis would be tricky to get away with.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I've only started caring about these apps since I've started using it on my iPad while I'm working. Is there no sign of Challenge ever appearing on TVPlayer et al with it being on Freeview, or is Sky still keeping it wrapped around its finger?

None of the other Sky channels are there either.
