    Use the chromecast app and keep an eye on the offers.. currently offering the first x-men for free and 3 months nowtv entertainment package for free.

    If you have a nexus phone keep checking the play movies app from time to time.. got gravity free a few weeks back..

    I got the offers and I had 4 of them. 3 months nowtv. 3 months google play. £15 google play credit and xmen.

    Thought that wasn't bad for £30

    I installed this on my S4 as the old SportsDevil was blocked by Giffgaff. Would come up as 'no stream available' when I tried to load the football. Switch to WiFi and it would work no problem. This one works fine. Thanks
