How odd @tc66,

 

I can access the 'Manage Devices' area of 'My Account' just fine. What device are you using to access your 'Manage Devices' area? And who's your ISP?

Re: ANy plans to change the moronic 4 device limit?

Anyway, if NOWTV enforce a two concurrent streams limit anyway, what is the point of, or justification for, such a low device limit. I'm almost out of prepaid NOWTV time but if they have no plans of changing this I'm going back to NetFlix. At least I can have up to six devices with them.

Re: ANy plans to change the moronic 4 device limit?

@Scog I think you will find whilst you can have 6 device, you can only have 1,2 or 4 streams depending on plan. https://www.netflix.com/gb/ every plan except the 1 stream option is more expensive than on here. That being said, Netflix's original content has some good programs. I have it in addition to this. I personally don't see it as a rival but as a way of getting more content.

Re: ANy plans to change the moronic 4 device limit?

I agree with @Scog the limitation of 4 devices is pathetic, I have Now TV boxes in Livingroom, 2 bedrooms and Kitchen and thats the limit so i can't watch in my Study or on any mobile devices.

 

I'm currently on a 6 month pass and i won't be re-subscribing when it ends as i'll stick with Netflix and Amazon Prime if Now TV can't sort their device limit out !!!

Re: ANy plans to change the moronic 4 device limit?

@carlos6868 @Scog @4268

 

Hi Carlos

 

I'm guessing that you would like a tiered system, as explained by @4268 and agreed with by @Scog, is something you would like to see, i.e. the more devices above four you have, the more streams you can use simultaneously and the more you pay.

 

As for me, as long as the four devices, two stream system is not affected by the additions both you and @Scog are calling for then I too would be aboard with supporting your suggestion.

 

An example would be something like this:

 

4 Devices - 2 Simultaneous streams - Prices unchanged

 

6 Devices - 3 Simultaneous streams - Prices go up by 66%

 

8 Devices - 4 Simultaneous streams - Prices go up by 100%

 

My guesstimate above reflects the extra admin charges that would be generated by the scheme

 

However, it may be easier for both you and @Scog to open a second account, that would make your in-home admin a bit more difficult but it would immediately solve your device deficit.

Re: ANy plans to change the moronic 4 device limit?

No that isn't really what i want at all, as my post explains i would just like to be able to use more devices nothing to do with watching more streams at a time (there are only two people in the house)

@carlos6868

 

Hi again Carlos

 

Sorry, I misunderstood your post, because when you said, "I agree with @Scog the limitation of 4 devices...", I assumed you also wanted more streams.

 

I'm guessing here, but for NowTV to administer more than four devices without increasing the number of simultaneous streams would also involve amending/updating their current admin computer programme.  That would cost NowTV a significant amount, an amount that would have to be passed on to their customers.

 

In other words Carlos, would you be willing to pay extra to have more than 4 devices available but no extra streaming capability?

Re: Device limit too restrictive.

I have too say I am very disappointed that now tv can't change the device limit like all there competitors. I am currently running Netflix and now tv and would prefer to have one common instance but due to your restrictions it is impossible. Maybe I should unsubscribe. Please change this
