I just tried to watch something on filmon.com and it turns out, they now only let you watch 45 seconds before you’re redirected to another window, where you have to choose a subscription. It still also offers the free SD service here, but choosing that, you’re just going back to where you came from and get another 45 seconds (after you have chosen a UK channel). It doesn’t say anywhere, that they have introduced this restriction and apparently there is no restriction for German channels, so, given my location, I assume, that’s a license fee issue.29/07/2015 at 4:58 am #15480
I think you must have a ‘local’ issue. Working fine here…29/07/2015 at 7:37 am #15483
Matilda, maybe this is your problem (quote from Filmon on their Facebook page): “we just switched our default quality to HD instead of the free SD. So all you have to do is switch to SD on top, as shown in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/Ve2w5Rj.png The 45 second timer at the bottom will disappear then and you can watch without interruptions. If you need more help, please email [email protected] Thanks!”

That sounds like the issue with the ‘App’ versions..
Please note: you can watch the HD Version sub free via the ‘Filmon TV’ (FTV) or ‘notFilmon’ addons in XBMC.29/07/2015 at 2:29 pm #15504
Oh thank god, Derek, you are right. Thanks for pointing that out! Why would I look in the upper right corner of the player… I actually wondered, how they would make such a major change without any official announcement somewhere. So that’s just a way to trick the stupid and inattentive viewers like me into buying subscriptions…?
At the moment I just need it on the old laptop when I’m doing stuff in the kitchen, so I can’t be bothered putting a sat cable across the flat and buying all the extra gear. But as I insist in always having a running tv near me as soon as it’s dark outside, I surely will have some proper installation in the kitchen one day.
Montgolfiere, I just notice, I’ve never heard of XBMC, but a quick look at wikipedia makes it a very interesting thing to have a closer look at. So far I was happy with VLC for all kinds of things, but XBMC/Kodi seems to go quite a bit further. Thanks for mentioning it.
