I'll be starting at Birmingham in September and I'm wondering if I will need to pay for some kind of streaming service or for a TV licence. It says in the accommodation booklet that the rooms have IPTV included, but I have no idea what this is. I have quite a few TV shows that I don't think I could live without, and I'm thinking I probably won't be able get them on this IPTV thing.
Is it worth paying for either a TV licence or for a subscription to something like netflix, or is there a lot of stuff availible on the IPTV thing? And if I were to get a TV licence, would everyone in the flat pay for their own or do people sometimes split the cost between them? Is it common for students to share netflix subscriptions?
