    Netflix SA vs Netflix USA

    Long time reader first time poster. So we took the leap and cancelled DSTV and all it entails, R 12,000 a year less makes sense for repeat programming. Stronger ADSL and two subscriptions will give me a saving of about R 500 per month. Registered Netflix and Showmax and will stream sport...

    Bluetooth headphones for Samsung smart TV?

    Anyone know if the UA50HU7000 can use Bluetooth headphones? The sales person at DionWired says no, but I have read otherwise. If so, then will the Polaroid ones on special at Game be any good (R290) ? PS: I am using IR ones at the moment and there is a lot of static.
