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.

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?
