Hi @Anonymous User
It would be very useful to others similarly affected to know which section of which law you think applies here.
Yup. But the clever defence lawyer is going to ask you two questions:-
(i) Given that NowTV provides a mechanism to Cancel your Passes for yourself, why didn’t you use it?
(ii) Which specific Section or Sections of the CRA 2015 do you think have been breached?
I’ll agree that NowTV’s Pass Cancelling process is about as user-friendly as a cornered rat, and badly needs an overhaul to make it no more complicated than booking a flight with SleazyAir, but I don’t think it actually breaks any laws, does it?
No, I don’t work for NowTV.
My impression of NowTV Broadband is that they are swamped, both with people joining and with people leaving.
Which is what happens when you provide a unique ‘no contract lock-in’ service.
And also when people find they have been given a router with only two Ethernet ports and reportedly poor WiFi performance, and NowTV decline to help anyone trying to use their own replacement router, by withholding what the spec of such a router, and the settings, ought to be.
Even BT don’t do that; they helped me set up my Netgear Nighthawk when their own Home Hub proved unreliable, only reserving the right to ask me to put the Hub back on as part of any problem diagnosis. And even then, only if they suspected the non-standard router was involved - the couple of times I have had to call them, the issue was resolved at their end without the router ever being mentioned.
I used to be with Sky Broadband, but the router then was a very decent 4-port job; I’m told the current NowTV router is the same as the current Sky one. But I haven’t looked to see if the Sky forums are full of grief about this router or not....
