    As said its true. I heard about it over on the Digital Spy Forums yesterday.
    Not a big surprise. Just closing quicker than some expected it too.
    Disney will in time close all the channels they own in the UK.

    that will depend on if Disney have the streaming rights to programmes currently shown on the FOX Uk linear TV channel. Currently only some of FOX UK  linear programming is made available on NOW on demand streaming.

    Which means they will be taken off air on the 30 June...

    Well Fox Channel closes in just under 4 days and 80% of content will move mover to Disney +.
    Also Discovery Channel looks set to to be removed from Now by the end of this week coming.
    Im not getting Discovery + just to watch a few Discovery shows that I liked.
    I now as said use the Fire TV HD 2020 version for apps more than I now do the Youview boxes. 
    Also got the updated 2021 Fire TV Bluetooth remote for it last week from Amazon that now comes with an Amazon Video button as well as buttons for Netflix, Disney + and Amazon music.
    Also has on improved Alexa voice search button.
    Think the only thing I dont use is Amazon Music as I dont have Amazon Music unlimited. I use Spotify. 
    Remote seems a little faster then the old remote that was ok.

    Times are a changin.

    I believe @Ken Hill1 is dyslexic (I seem to remember reading that somewhere).

    @kodikid I only got Disney + at the start of April and I'm really liking Disney +  and im glad I got the Amazon Fire Stick HD 2020 version just over 5 months ago. As I now use that more for apps and need it for Disney + and the new improved remote I got for I just under a month ago makes it even better.
    Have recently changed my Disney + payment from monthly to yearly. Same as my Amazon Prime.
    My monthly TV viewing via streaming services, paid for as well as the free ones has increased since the first lockdown last year.
    How times have changed.

    That's why I'm completely lost why anyone wouldn't be a cord cutter.
    A good pvr and a Roku box ticks every box.

    In English please. Not everyone knows or likes jargon.
    Trying to find definitions amongst adverts for actual cord cutters can be difficult, and jargon doesn't engage people in discussions.

    Sorry but haven't you just engaged in this discussion??
    Obviously no barrier to you then.

    But I did say I'd had to search for it, so to join a discussion you put me to unnecessary time and effort to find out what you were talking about (bluesky bull**** springs to mind).
    Others may not wish to find out what you are talking about, so can't engage, when they may have something interesting to say.

    It would be helpful if you explained that term in English, as it would help those who don't know what it means. Cheers.

    Way back in the early seventies when I was in my late teens I had two pairs of cords. In my head I thought I cut an elegant style, in fact I still do. However, the style in those days was extremely tight and the cut was rather revealing, and for those reasons no one on this forum is going to see any pictures of me in said cords.

    Disambiguation Cords:- ribbed fabric, especially corduroy - "the cloth for their suits was cord"

    @Stevef_fr8ys

    If you hark right back to your early days, I think you will find that a cord cutter was the first person you encountered when you came out of the womb ✂️🪡😷

    Nice one Roy. I wonder then if it's @kodikid way of saying he is cutting ties with this forum?
  • robotmanrobotman Member Posts: 191
    Hard to believe 'cord cutting' needs to be explained to some folks. It's not like it isn't a very common term used across the web AND within magazines printed in ENGLAND for an ENGLISH reading audience. Just saying.

    It 's like any Jargon TBH (to be honest), IMO (in my opinion), you either know it or you don't. When I was as work you were told not to assume people know.
    I read a number of tech mags and Never come across it, except when used by @kodikid in this and a previous thread, and that was so long ago I had forgotten and had to look up again.
    Mocking me @robotman, for my lack of knowledge, is against the forum rules, as has been pointed out before to others, when they correct, or mock others with poor spelling for example.
    Help forums are open to people of all levels of ability, and as such comments should be kept simple and understandable to all.

    @Stevef_fr8ys

    Nice comeback to @robotman

    And I would certainly agree that when replying to a specific poster, especially a new one, it is wise to judge their level of expertise from their posting, and try to pitch our responses accordingly, tempering our wind to the shorn lamb, and explaining things that we would not generally think to explain to the regulars here.

    However, on the topic of jargon in general discourse here, anybody reading postings in this Community is using a browser to do so.

    And if they come across anything they don’t understand, the remedy is to open another tab, type in the word, term, or expression, and see if they get hits that explain it.

    I didn’t, the first time I saw it, understand the term ‘linear TV’. Once I had looked it up, I still didn’t quite understand why ‘live TV’ wouldn’t suffice, as it had always done in the past. Until I came across the pillock (not on this Community!) arguing that he didn’t need a TV licence to watch East Enders, because it wasn’t ‘live TV’, but rather pre-recorded.

    I still don’t like the term ‘linear TV’, because it seems to me to be a misuse of ‘linear’; if you look up ‘linear’ on its own, you will see nothing that would help explain what ‘linear TV’ means. But in the absence of a better term, and given how established it now is in the jargon, it does what the good side of jargon does, which is to encapsulate in one or two words what might otherwise take a paragraph to explain.

    So do I think it perfectly OK to use terms like ‘cord cutting’ in common discourse here, as @kodikid did, when the conversation is among ourselves.

    @Stevef_fr8ys
    I never intended to offend you, which I honestly believe I didn't. I'm amazed you didn't know what the term 'cord cutting' mean. From the first of hundreds of times of hearing and seeing the term it was very obvious what it meant (in fact within a forum of the nature of this one the term is very appropriate and simple to umderstand) and I am far from being, or claiming to be, an expert. 

    @Roy
    "Nice comeback" you say. Now that did make me laugh. Of course I am aware of you from elsewhere so would expect little else but that sort of inane remark from you.

    Heaven forbid anyone should know more than some of the posters in this forum. Where's the disagree button when you need one. It would save so much explanation as to why you think someone has posted a load of old baloney just to massage their own over inflated ego. :D

    I posted a reply earlier today and made a comment about an action I personally would take. I had second thoughts about that so will respond to @robotman as follows.

    You said I never intended to offend you, so an apology of sorts, but then you continue the abuse by saying  I'm amazed you didn't know what the term 'cord cutting' mean. Just because you have heard it hundreds of times doesn't mean others have or understand it as I clearly stated before.

    @kodikid

    I’m sad to see you endorsing the abuse above. 

    I have a fair idea who the poster is, and if so his opinion of me should not be valued here. And perhaps not anywhere.

    Who do you think I am? I'm intrigued by your super power to 'know' someone you have never actually met or engaged with outside of this forum. Just because I've had to read some of your stuff elsewhere doesn't mean I've engaged with you. So again, who do you think I am???

    This thread is starting to get a little off topic.
    I see some more shows that where on Fox are slowly starting to show up on Disney+.
