    Filmon tv free live 19th May 17 at 7:05 PM
    Hi

    I have been in Egypt 8 months and watch UK TV on my computer on FilmOn.

    But recently it turns off every 5 minutes and you have to refresh, which you never had to do before.

    Have they changed and you have to pay to be not interrupted?

    Tks

    Yes, you have to pay for it now. I watch it in an EU country.

    There is a workaround though if you have a desktop or laptop with W10.

    Go to store, type in FrostWire, install and watch it free in HD too.
    Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.

    I used to use Filmon in Spain along with Mobdro, looks like it's just Mobdro now then.

    Details here.

    Thank you for contacting FilmOn Customer Support.
    After 11 years, unfortunately, we are no longer offering watching for free in SD for most channels.

    Think I'll just pay. It's 2 pounds 30p a week

    It looks like £14.95 a month, I cannot see a weekly charge.

    It's $14.95, not pounds. One year is 149$ which is about 2 pounds 30p a week.

    It certainly makes it easier for their admin people,

    How much, it's 14.95!

    I dropped lucky a few years ago when the exchange rates were more in the UKs favour. A website selling holidays did a similar thing, you could choose what currency to pay in. When you chose dollars it still enter the amount in £, it was a bargain.

    It's not worth me paying as we are normally away for a week at a time. Mobdro will be fine for us. Thanks.
