I stopped using nowtv over a year ago and have just noticed I’ve been charged for entertainment and cinema passes I never asked for with no communication that it was going to happen. No support available, managed to cancel before being charged again. Had to push cancel numerous times to confirm.
Ironic that I pressed NOTHING for them to charge me in the fist place.
Absolute disgrace, please refund asap.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hope this helps.
As expected, the email address provided by Saint1967 has so far yielded NOTHING.
However, great news, the complaint form (although not where he stated and is difficult to find) has!
I got a quick and helpful reply from a genuine NowTV employee.
If you don’t find the complaint form, try:
help at nowtv.com
Replace the spaces and at with @
I thank Saint1967 for pushing me in the direction of the complaint form.
If I assume he is not a troll, I offer this advice:
Quote the relevant part of the person’s statement.
Give the information relevant after checking it is still valid in plain language without being judgemental.
Move to the next statement and repeat.
Bluntly, your comments are an insulting mess of jumbled copying and pasting which DO NOT HELP.
Which is the function of the forum.
If you genuinely want to help, I applaud and thank you but please check your emotions at the door.
The people who have had money taken from them and have had to endure the drawn out process of going in circles on a web site which at best is difficult to navigate and at worst designed to stop people attempting to recover their had earned cash and then had to use a FORUM for help, WTF?
They have every right to be emotional, NOT YOU in your ivory tower.
Good luck everyone. PK
I have had the exact same experience. I have been charged for Sky Sports Monthly Passes at £33.99 per month , NOWTV Boost Pass £3.00 and Kids Month Pass at £3.99 per month without me purchasing or requesting.
It is just crazy there is no human person customer services you can talk to. So I would and have requested a refund and to ensure no more payments go out I have cancelled directly with my bank any future transactions.
This is white collar theft and a crime NOWTV . Can we contact SKY directly as they own it now ?
If it is not either of the things that @Saint1976 covered originally, then it could be that you haven’t set a Payment PIN on your account, and that your account details, perhaps including your password, perhaps not, are out there in the wild, and somebody is using them.
This can happen if you dispose of a device with an open Now account on it, TV, Stick, Box, what-have-you, without wiping it first. Or lose such a device, and it isn’t overall password-protected,
Or less seriously, the pass was started on a device with an open Now account in your home, or the home of someone you might have shared your account with (e.g. watching ‘your’ Now on a friend’s TV say, and not logging out afterwards).
A good clue is to look at the device list on your account, and see if you can tie up the usage to one of your devices, or perhaps to a device you don’t recognise at all.
The remedy for any such breach is to change your password, and while changing it to take the option to force all devices off your account (since just changing your password isn’t enough, as it doesn’t affect running devices),
And while you are in there, set a Payment PIN and don’t tell it to anyone, so only you can buy Memberships in future.
Same thing here NOWTV is illegally taking my money every month when i have cancelled all passes since february.
the worst thing is they cannot be contacted (which is amazing considering they are a tech oriented company who work online) so they will keep taking my money every month and there is nothing i can do about it
If they're still taking money you either didn't cancel properly (it's a 3 or 4 stage process that culminates in a confirmation email) or you have another active account.
Luckily, for a tech company, they can be contacted...
customerservices at nowtv.com (we can't put email addresses here so obviously remove 'at' and the spaces and put 'at'). You'll also find it in the Terms & Conditions.
Failing that make a complaint (also clearly available)
I've been charged too, it is ridiculous the amount of times you need to press in order to cancel a pass. I've just found out that after cancelling the pass has miraculously activated again. No trust in this company whatsoever.
