While changing a device on my account I see in the small print that it says from 31 July I will only be able to watch on one device at a time instead of 2. Why is this changing? To be only able to watch 1 device at a time makes Now TV not worth the price. Has anyone else seen this?
Aye, you are correct. This is what happens when you try to write an angry post after NowTV throws a curveball and then a Ferrari slides into a wall during quali.
Correct, I can cancel and "lose the offer". And I've done just that for the cinema package. It's a little out of spite but gives me the budget for boost should I need it, but again, out of spite and principle, I think I'll avoid it if I can.
I hate being so negative, but if the "Sports offer" is 22+ quid a month, I feel like I have to complain if it's not up to scratch.
If you want more than one stream then it’s annoying yes but the only option is to take out boost.
Which I’m paying £3 for until November.
Have a nosy at the post from me directly up from yours.
Very annoyingly they dropped the stream number on the 19th July to 1. And the only way around it is to get boost.
This is really poor. When NOW TV was a fairly new thing, it was £6 a month (for the basic entertainment pack) and you could watch on two devices simultaneously. Now, it's £10 for one. Sky's calculation of course is that more people that need two streams will swallow the extra £5 than will just cancel completely and go elsewhere. Me, I was going to get a monthly sports subs, but as I won't be able to watch it when my wife's watching something else there basically isn't any point. No way am I paying an extra £5 for what should be (and USED to be!) part of the service anyway. Really disappointing. I wish I could say I was surprised, but at the end of the day it's all about the £s.
@Anonymous User Don't forget the added advertisements as well so it wasn't just cutting the number of streams (lost over £30 a month from me) - Funny that IMBDtv has now launched as an ad funded service while NOW adds ads, increases the price and reduces the service
It needs a little thought to avoid logging between the accounts all the time, but if you want to watch Sports while your wife is watching something else, then this implies that you have at least two devices to watch on.
And in this case, there is no downside in you having a whole separate account for your Sports membership; the limitation is one user of any given account at a time, so just put your Spirts on a separate account, and then you can both watch at once, for exactly the same price as 2 memberships on a single account.
