    I'm not surprised it wasn't well used. As a Clubcard user, I didn't even know this existed. If you don't know it exists, you can hardly even try it.

    I knew it existed, never found anything on there worth watching though.

    I knew it existed, but this was back when it was still in beta testing and was only for staff... I didn't know it had gone live for everyone so it's clearly not be 'advertised' well, hell my parent's haven't even asked me about it and they take much more notice of adverts than I do lol.

    Re: News - Tesco shutters free Clubcard TV ahead of Hudl 2 launch

    Can I ask you guys a related question please? I just got 1 of my kids a Hudl and she loves it. I said I'd get my other girl one for her birthday in December. This'll still be a Hudl 1 due to budget.... question is shall I grab one now asap or wait until nearer the time, after the Hudl 2 announcement? It's £99 now and can't really seeing it going down in price any more. I just don't know whether to get it soon in case there's a rush on or they bury stock to push Hudl2

    What do you guys think?

    Hudl 1 will be discontinued closer to the hudl 2 launch. Tesco won't be selling two models at the same time.

    Although it is suspected the Hudl 2 will come in around £130 too and will also on launch be available as clubcard exchange for double points return.

    They could technically do both if the rumours of the Hudl 2 being bigger are to be believed... there would be a price difference as the Hudl 1 is only £99

    With a serious lack of decent shows, and somewhat intrusive advertising (think youtube), it's no wonder it didn't survive.
