TV and Streaming – Tuesday 12th May 2020

Morning!

It’s Tuesday and the feeling is the country is still a little lost as to what we can or cannot do. My advice: stay at home and watch some movies. Lots of films including two new additions to the Home Premiere section (films you can rent that only got released in cinemas before the lockdown).

Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Tuesday!
