Things to watch

After a day of working from home or perhaps looking after the kids, it’s nice to be able to put the laptop away, put the kids to bed and relax in front of the TV.

With so many different platforms available, it can sometimes be quite tricky finding something to watch! You spend more time flicking through programmes, series and films, than actually watching the TV!
