LAST CHANCE TONIGHT 27/01/18! Free - Alan Partridge film - Alpha Papa @BBC iPlayer

Found 4th JanEdited by:"luvsadealdealdeal"
DJ Alan Partridge stars in this film - pure fun! Big box office success.

Comedy. Local radio DJ and former talk show presenter Alan Partridge ends up in a siege when a disgruntled colleague decides to take the staff hostage. To save his own job, Alan gets radio colleague Pat laid off, but when the man returns to the relaunched station with a shotgun and a siege ensues, Alan is given the high profile role of go-between, trying to appease both the hostage taker and armed police. So lots of people have Alan in their sights.

Not free, requires a TV licence. It's a trap. Very misleading title.
Film is not free. At best it's free to watch.

Shame it was crap.
I think you'll find it's £147...
Gone girl is on the iPlayer aswell.
Most pointless deal ever. Why not just list all of the current BBC iplayer offerings as well and pretend they're free too? Licence fee required to view would suggest otherwise, a recurring cost whether done annually or by direct debit.

Not free.


It's free for me. Are you somehow paying an incremental cost? BBC licence fee is a sunk cost.
I stopped watching after 10 minutes....yawn.
How is this free exactly? Cost of licence fee. Maybe not for those who don't pay it but many of use do.

Because you’d normally expect to pay for a Blu-ray, so it being free would be a deal. This is something available on the iplayer, which is essentially a subscription based service.
Would you vote hot if I posted a deal for a film that is available free on Netflix?
lol @ people whinging about the license fee

NEED A TELLY TOO ... AND ELECTRICITY!! - NOT FREE - OP SHOULD BE BANNED!!!!11

Yes, I know it's in Freebies - that's kind of the whole point of my entry...it's not a freebie and if you don't want people to comment you maybe want to think twice about listing such time-wasting non-deals....it's not a freebie...end of story...the whole of catch up TV/BBC iplayer etc could be listed on here according to your logic and that would be the purpose of a TV listings site not a deals website....

nope

a lot of people don't habitually trawl the BBC iPlayer site, so getting notification of some exceptional film or programme is of interest to them

same as I appreciate the free footy threads - I wouldn't otherwise get to hear about the free stuff (without a lot of effort)

You could cost someone money with your bogus poorly described freebie. It's not free at all. Would you like me to list everything on NowTV? That's also free if you have paid for a pass
Too young to know alan partridge properly but this film made me Laugh out loud several times. You do have to stick with it especially if you're not a previous fan.

Well there's no freebies out there if u really think about it any freebies either cost u time money in travel looking at the hotukdeals app which uses time and electricity aswell as other energy? ?????? Think about it it maybe considered free to those who pay a fee anyway and pay for electric aswell

You asked me if I wanted to. So I don't want to, you don't want to, what a particularly pointless comment then.

Jog on brilly, you know you're in the wrong about this one. Unusual for you, but here we are.

i didn't ask if you wanted to - you asked if you should and i gave you my permission
again - i'm not in the wrong so dont worry about me
My goodness this deal has brought the moaners out in force!!

Thanks OP, will watch this later, as I'm sure many of the other 25,826,118 TV licence holders will too.

Not sure where my comment went, do you?

I don't think stating that you're lack of punctuation makes your meaning unclear is beyond the line.
