    I was wondering would I be able to get Coronation Street and East Enders on this? Also how would you hook it up so it goes through the tv? Sorry I am no tech savy person:-(


    • Hi Sharyn. You could probably get those shows with the UK version of Netflix, which can be accessed via this system. Do a search for those titles with the keyword netflix and see what comes up. To hook it up to the tv you will need a media player, PS3 or Xbox or you can hook your laptop up to the TV via an HDMI card.
