Sky Sports Offer Not Working on BTTV box.

Took advantage of the NOW TV/Sky Sports £34.99 offer. Can view it on iphones etc but the update doesn't seem to have worked on my BTTV box. Can't view what I've bought!

When you say you took an offer and using a BT box, is your billing through BT? If you have to contact them to get it sorted out.

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


Do you have a BT TV subscription? And have you bought the Sports Membership directly from Now?

In that case, you will have two separate Now accounts. And with a BT TV subscription, the BT TV box will keep automatically reverting to the BT TV Now account every chance it gets, cutting you off from the Sports subscription.

But this will not happen on any non-BT TV device, so on those, you can log in to the direct Now account and this won’t be overridden. Though there you will lose access to any Now memberships you have through BT TV, while using the account with the direct Sports membership.

You should be able to go onto Now even on the BT TV box and override the BT TV membership to watch Sports, but you will temporarily lose the BT TV features of the box while doing this, (the Now channels in the EPG and any recordings made or scheduled to be made from them) and it will revert to the BT TV account first chance it gets, so it will be a bit of a struggle 😢

Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it. Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now. That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.
