211: Carry on Streaming

Our early Autumn Carry On Streaming show has finally arrived! Not just a show, host Declan makes this a public information spectacular, turning him into our version of Martin Lewis! 

At the Flicks · 211: Carry on Streaming

Apart from the usual subject of the streaming shows, telling you what’s best on offer, we also have another offer for you. Dec will tell you how to get the best value from the various streaming services around in the UK.  Want to save money on the high profile streamers – then come on in! How about finding out the best services that are available for free – yes, we have found those as well.  At The Flicks, not only great listening, it’s also wonderful value for your pocket.  If you know of any other money saving tips for streaming services, please let us know and we will pass them on in future episodes. 

Having said all that, great value streaming services are no good if the content isn’t worthwhile. Luckily, we have found some gems for you.  Classics on BBC iPlayer like Inside No 9 (although Jeff will be a bit more weary of showing this entertainment to unsuspecting members of his family in future – full story revealed on the show), and other BBC gems you might have missed like Avoidance and Life After Life.  From Sky / Now TV we all rave about Peacemaker, James Gunn on top form, the latest version of The Midwich Cuckoo’s (especially heartening for Graham who is a big John Wyndham fan) and the latest series of Barry, which Jeff called the highlight of the year so far. 

There is just so much quality entertainment out there on all the streaming channels, from Slow Horses (Apple), The Boys (Prime), The Lincoln Lawyer (Netflix) to She-Hulk (Disney).  Then there is the burning question – are you team Dragon or team Rings?  The big fantasy shows go to head to head.  Get our verdict here.

How about that as a starter?  There is much, much more available on the show.  And this can be seen as a warmup.  Dec’s Halloween streaming selection is coming very shortly.

At The Flicks – we only recommend the best.  See you very shortly for our spooky spectacular.
