The Mhinisteir and I have been yearning to watch reruns of the Vicar of Dibley.  DVDs weren’t an option as we don’t have a DVD player.  We gave ours away many years ago.  Anyway, even if we had a DVD player it wouldn’t work as we do not have a television.  However,  this was the only programme we wanted to watch.   I trawled the internet looking for ways to watch it for free online but none were available.

Thanks to Martin Lewis from the MoneySavingExpert, I did accidentally discover that one can watch ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 online without a TV License.  Not live TV though but how fabulous is that?  It is not too much of a benefit to us who are not great lovers of TV but it is useful information.  You never know when you might need these facilities.

Back to my search for the Vicar of Dibley…..  As I was flipping the pages of the Good Housekeeping, I read about Britbox and guess what?, the Vicar of Dipley got a mention.  I immediately signed up to Britbox and found out that you get a free 30 day trial.  For those interested, it costs £5.99 per month after that.   The only problem is we might finish watching all of the Vicar of Dibley episodes long before the end of the 30 day trial !!!!!!!
