I was browsing the NOW website and I saw in two sections that the number of devices you can watch NOW at the same time could be reducing from mid July 2021. This was in the terms and conditions for 'How NOW works'
"Register up to 6 compatible devices and watch on 2 at the same time (1 device from 15 July 2021) (3 if you have NOW Boost)."
It looks like NOW Boost will still increase that to three devices but Boost itself is increasing in price to £5 per month!
The information about the number of devices changing is in the terms and conditions under the 'Sports Membership Offer'
More information about Boost is in the FAQ's below
It this is true then it will not be a popular change as I'm sure that many people watch on more than one device at a time and will be forced to pay £5 a month more for a Boost.
It would good if someone from NOW could come and confirm if and how this change is happening as the information about it on the NOW website does seem somewhat vague.
Don’t want three, was quite happy with the two (not a pop at you) for me and the boy. It might only be another £5 on top of the the £34 I already pay for Sports membership but to me it’s just wrong. Take away a benefit without reducing the price but then make you pay extra to get it back again. Ok so you get more but I don’t want that more otherwise I would have paid for the Boost already. Ah well, I’m rambling, looks like I won’t be watching any live sports anymore. Actually, Brucie Bonus, I can cancel my tv license now too 🙂
Thanks for the confirmation @gavs82008
Same for me, regularly have 2 streams in the house and until now hadn't seen anything about this changing. I will now be cancelling NowTV rather than paying the same for a degraded service, or more for a service that is more than i require.
So, say I I'm away from home and rather than watch on the app on a tablet, I have a Chromecast with me.
Does casting from the app to a Chromecast still count as 2 devices?
If so, and I don't have boost, how do I then cast to the TV?
