Love the new Instant Streaming.

I have been meaning to watch the A320 and decided to give the streaming a go. Wow, it was great to watch this programme on the train back to work. Plays with no issues on WiFi.

Alan Dix really explained all the systems in an easy to understand way. He also has a twinkle in his eye.

I am going to watch it again as there is so much to take in.

Well done ITVV on bringing this service to customers.

All the best

I already owned the Airbus A320 DVD but hadn't watch it in a long time. So I decided to re-watch it on the streaming service.

The streaming image quality is excellent. To me the colours look more vivid than I recall on the DVD!

Captain Alan Dix is a master at presenting this programme. He is just so "watchable". He has a great personality which really comes over.

I shall be rewatching this programme again - I had forgotten how great it is.
