Bit confused about what to do.
I've recently done a bank account switch and I logged into my NOWTV account to check everything had been updated. It had. However a few days later I recented notice that "payment had failed but don't worry you can continue watching and we will try to take it again". I did a quick double check and yes everything appeared to be fine.
Today I received an e-mail stating "You NOWTV subscription hasn't been renewed" as you were still unable to take payment.
Checking again all my card details seem to be correct so I've no idea what to do now ?
Any ideas ?
@Anonymous User quick one, have you used your new card online anywhere else? I once had an issue where PayPal refused to let me buy anything, but then after I used my card on another website and got past the verify by visa set up, suddenly it all started working fine on PayPal.
@Anonymous User the question is have you paid online with your debit card, not direct debits or physical purchases. There is something around Verify by Visa / Mastercard Secure which can affect companies who don't use it when it's not been configured already.
I'm currently on live chat and put through to the second line team. They've advised that there's a problem with their card system.
It's not you...it's them. I was told the cancellation e-mails were sent in error.
Still waiting to find out what they can do.
I really didn't like the response I received.
The agent ended the live chat really abruptly after I asked if there was a security issue with their card payments and mentioned the 16 year old hacking Talk Talk's system...
Richard: Can you try logging in again now?
Me:.Oh...why do I need to log in again?
Richard: I want to see if your Entertainment Pass is working?
Me: It's not. It's saying the same. That I don't have one.
Me: This whole thing is a bit off putting. Now TV have had an issue with their payment system, sent e-mails to customers intimating that the issue is on their side and the customer has to contact you through a drawn out process to get it rectified.
Richard: I apologise for the inconvenience this has caused. Please bear with us as we hope to have your problem resolved in the not too distant future.
Me: I worried at first thinking that the e-mails were a phishing attempt.
Me: Richard - it's not just me who has been inconvenienced. If it's your payment system then all your customers will be affected.
Me: Has the security of your payment system been compromised?.
Me: A 16 year old hacked Talk Talk's system, this is quite concerning.
Richard: Our technical team is currently investigating this problem, and we do hope to get the issue resolved quickly.
NOW TV will be in contact as soon as we have an update for you.
Richard: Thanks for getting in touch Gail and enjoy the rest of your day. Bye now 🙂
@Anonymous User...............I'm experiencing similar problems as you and Furry with Nowtv saying they were unable to take payments.
Over the last four or five days, I've had a number of different but equally useless Live Chats with the NowTv agents informing them there's nothing wrong my end.
Today I discover my Nowtv account has now been kicked into touch and I can't watch any movies, so I went back onto the Live chat to once again get an answer and resolve the problem.
I eventually asked how and who I could make a complaint to.
Without the issue being resolved or being given a suitable way of making a compaint, the NowTv agent ended the chat without a bye or leave.
Not being impressed with NowTV is putting it midly.
Hi @Anonymous User,
Firstly I'm very sorry to hear the way the chat ended. Agents can't end the chat without warning so it's likely this was due to loosing connection or a system crash.
There is an issue with subscriptions renewing now, as I'm sure you've been informed this is on our end and is being investigated. If a payment can't be taken the subscription will automatically cancel after a number of tries. You may find that if you go into your account and click buy pass this may kick start the subscription again. If this isn't successful we will be informing you by email once the issue has been resolved.

@Anonymous User assuming they let you buy a new pass and it doesn't error, you'll be fine. The system has now stopped trying and has filed you as cancelled, it also can't do multiple passes of the same type on the same account.
I've had the same problem. Tried Live Chat. Terminated before I'd even had a chance to send my question - not impressed with them! I've now sent an e-mail. Its as-if the encrytption algorithm they use to store the card number is not the same as the one they use to un-encrypt it. Probably a panic system change following the talk-talk hacking gone wrong.
