Thanks for your confidence in my ability to  do that, but...LOL LOL LOL! Cat LOL HDMI??? sign in on the computer? OMG! My brain just does not handle stuff like that! I know I get some kind of "streaming" with Amazon Prime, but have no idea how to even do that. I'll just have to be satisfied with what I can get on the zillions of channels on my TV. N.

@catwoman500  I have a Roku stick, about $30-40 on Amazon I think.  Comes with its own remote. Plugs into the HDMI plug in on your regular TV.  You do have to sign in on your main computer or something easy to type on as you need password & ID for each service you subscribe to and its not easy to type with the remote.  No tech savy needed, really!  There are a few free channels available on Roku but all of my TV time is spent on Acorn and PBS.  I am no longer able to get the live PBS channel so I subscribe, but they have tons of shows to watch under the Passport.  

 

@ASTRAEA  I kept wondering why none of the regular PBS watchers mentioned it.

@LaDolceVita, Oh how I loved Home Fires! Cat Sad

 

So, do you have to have a smart TV to stream? Are you stuck watching on a computer or phone? I'm so out of it with all this newer tech stuff. N.

@catwoman500  I just switched to streaming a few weeks ago.  The equipment in my uverse bundle was continually breaking down!   I was mad enough to just cancel.  Spent hours on the phone each time one of the boxes broke.  Quite happy with the streaming, about 1/2 price.  I am using Direct vNow, Acorn for British shows and PBS for the Passport. 

 

@nyadrn  I am almost finished watching the first season.  I hope there is a season 2.  I am still distraught over Home Fires not returning!

@nyadrn, @LaDolceVita,

 

Diane's blurb said,

"The series—which is available exclusively for streaming—is appropriately titled Jamestown, and debuts March 23."

 

Then no wonder I never knew when it was on since I have no clue about "streaming!" Cat Tongue

Hi

Don't remember this.

 

https://www.tvinsider.com/674394/jamestown-series-pbs-trailer-video/

 

The producers of Downton Abbey are bringing viewers a new PBS Distribution period drama series about three courageous, dynamic women who arrive in 17th-century Jamestown, Virginia, to begin new lives.

The series—which is available exclusively for streaming—is appropriately titled Jamestown, and debuts March 23.

"Taking viewers back to 1619 Jamestown, Virginia, Alice (Sophie Rundle), Verity (Naomi Battrick) and Jocelyn (Niamh Walsh) are among the first women to arrive in the English colony. Duty bound to marry the three men who have paid for their passage to the New World, they have little idea of what the future holds or the disruption their arrival is about to bring," PBS revealed about the show in a press release.
