    Wanting to catch up on Line of Duty, which we completely missed first time round, including not recording it on our YouView box when we could have, we found ourselves doing the on-demand 'cheapest option' dance:-

    Series 1 - available on our existing Netflix subscription
    Series 2 - ditto
    Series 3 - available to buy on Amazon Video for £5.99 HD. So we now 'own' this series, for whatever definition of 'own' applies to content being held on our behalf by someone else (see above!)
    Series 4 - bought for £5.82 delivered, a new DVD from an Amazon supplier

    Amazon's website wants £7.99, £13.49, £5.99 and £13.99 respectively for each series, though our Firestick generously directs us to Netflix for Series 1 and 2, rather than trying to charge us that.

    We'd be quite happy to have rented Series 3 for £5.99, so we aren't worried about the 'ownership' issues if it later evaporates, as clouds are wont to do :-)

    The novelty in all this, if what was once the norm can now be a novelty, is that while the first three series were instantly available, on pretty much any device we chose to watch them on, upstairs and down, and we could pick up on one device where we had left off on another, we have to wait for the DVD to arrive, carry it from room to room if we want to watch it elsewhere, and not expect it to pick up where we left off if we do. And of course, it's not HD.

    But we will own, really tangibly own, it. Of course, we will have to find somewhere to store it, and in reality, we will probably never watch it again. But we can give or lend it to someone else if we want, which we can't do with our 'owned' Series 3, as far as I know....

    Your welcome Guys and it was David not Daniel lol

    Sorry David - it was the Daniel-like typo that misled me.

    I must be going off my Rioja :-)

    Definitely a good link. In regards to typos I personally have no issue with people pointing them out to me.

    Sometimes it's done by accident other times I can get pain because of the Ms and it throws off my concentration. But if they are pointed out to me and the person is polite enough about it such as yourself I'm happy to try and correct it or if someone has already typed a post I will try to remember for future reference.

    We are encouraged not to pick people up on typos - we all make them - so wear them like a badge of honour.

    We just need to beware of imitations, that's all :-)
