Re: In program adverts, when did they start?

@MorelloCherry 

It doesn't help when Sky are losing so much content due to channels closing and being removed. Take a look at FOX and Discovery. 

 

Then it would seem that Sky aren't using the NBC (Comcast) TV show library to fill some of the void up. 

Likes of Chicago Fire/PD/Med, Law & Order and Law & Order SVU. These are boxsets that would be a welcome (in my opinion) addition to the losing content thanks to FOX and Discovery leaving NOW/Sky. 

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

Re: In program adverts, when did they start?

Seems to me that SKY have breached the contract we Entertainment Pass viewers had with them prior to recent COMCAST inspired changes ie no 3rd party ads.

And of course the loss of channels.

 

Neither we were warned in advance of impending downgrading of service.

Re: In program adverts, when did they start?

@Geluk I've never seen any mention in the Terms and Conditions regarding the omission or inclusion of adverts.

 

According to the Terms and Conditions, 30 days notice of changes. I received an email on 9th June which is more than 30 days.

 

The Terms also state that notice can be given electronically

 

we'll do so electronically, e.g. via email, via the NOW website, via a notification within the service or a notice 'pushed' to your device (or any other method we notify you of). Notifications will be deemed to have been delivered on the day they're sent, provided we haven't received a failed delivery notice (in which case we'll send a notice via the NOW website (which you should check regularly) and they'll be deemed sent the day after they appear on the NOW website). We'll send notices to you using the contact details you've given us, so please make sure you've provided us with accurate contact details, and keep us up to date if they change.

 

Now also reserve the right to change the service

 

We may vary, replace or withdraw any service, feature or functionality or channel or content provided as part of a service at any time. We provide the services on an ongoing basis and we cannot foresee what may change in the future. This means we may changes other than those set out in these Terms of Use.

 

It won't be practical for us to notify you in advance of all content changes and instead you should keep checking the NOW website for details of what's available.

 

We'll try to avoid making any significant changes to the services which are likely to be to your material disadvantage, but, if we do so, we'll aim to notify you in accordance with these Terms of Use.

 

Test the water and submit a complaint to OFCOM.

@Gray1 


By adverts are you meaning NOW promos or third party like Tesco?

Re: In program adverts, when did they start?

Just watching New Amsterdam on NOW via Amazon firestick and this is the first time I've had adverts DURING the programme......4 advert breaks in total. 

 

Nope nope nope not putting up with that, so it will all be cancelled, how cheeky to expect us to pay a subscription and then also force ads on us during the programme. I'm definitely not paying extra for boost as that is just another mickey take. 

 

I know this has been discussed a lot on here but I just needed a little rant about it as I can't quite believe that they think this is acceptable.

In cyberspace, no-one can hear you scream…..

 

Now comes out of Sky, and Sky do this and get away with it, so it’s in their culture….

Re: In program adverts, when did they start?

I gave up on watching New Amsterdam last night, as Max had decided the hospital was apparently terribly racist, though over half the characters are BAME.

 

He had BLM slogans laid on the floors, and had all the photos of the WHITE founders & contributors photos trashed. Sick of this. 😞
