New films to stream online

The Lego Movie ,Blinkbox

In case you missed this deal last week. You can currently buy The Lego Movie to download for £9.99 at Blinkbox.

Do this and you’ll get 500 bonus Clubcard points, worth £5 when shopping in Tesco, and up to £20 if you exchange for vouchers elsewhere.

If you only double them on something you’d normally buy like train fares, you’re getting the movie for free!

Even better, if you haven’t used Blinkbox yet, you can get a £3.49 bonus when you credit £1. So that’s potentially just £6.50 for copy of this fun animated movie before you count the points!

You can read all about Blinkbox in our Clever Site review.

On-Demand Pick

The Sopranos Now TV

This has been on my list to watch for years. Regarded by many as the best TV drama ever, you can watch all 6 series of The Sopranos on Sky’s Now TV.

You can also watch many other box sets and most of what’s being shown on normal Sky TV, including Sky Atlantic.

A month of the entertainment package is £4.99, or you can sign up for six months for £34.99 and also get a NOW TV box worth £9.99. If you don’t want the box you can connect your TV to a computer, or some TVs and consoles will have a NOW TV app.
