Re: Number of simultaneous NOW streams changing from July 2021?

Does this apply to the Sports membership too? I can only multi-stream if I pay an extra £5?

@Paul4 

The single stream applies for all memberships. If you want 3 streams then you have to get Boost.


FYI that I do not work for NOW, I am simply a NOW customer trying to help I am a Community Contributor This means that I know a lot about the service and like you I am still a customer. For any account issues you’ll need to contact staff via customer support.

Re: Number of simultaneous NOW streams changing from July 2021?

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

I completely agree, we use the two devices and now will be forced to have a degraded service of just one device or fork out another £5! We don’t want all the other gumf just leave our service as it is 😡

I have got sky sports through now tv for over 2 years and also have the entertainment and movies as well as boost. I think there was only one month where I paid full price for the entertainment pass and then that is it. It's so easy to get discounts etc

I can have three separate accounts to get three streams.

Agreed, currently looking at 100% discount 😂

 

Thing is I have 11 months of sports vouchers and now get half the streams.  Easy £55 for Now TV I guess.

Re: Number of simultaneous NOW streams changing from July 2021?

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?

Hi @StevePNicolaW 

 

Cast to the Google Television or Chromecast Dongle first, then hit the play button on the NOW App on the mobile casting device.

 

This above way will count has one NOW stream.
