Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Frame rate matching works in iPlayer too. I never use ITV or 5 so I can't comment on those.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Hmmm...Ive just tested IPlayer again frame rate matching not working for me

 

i have my native Apple TV set to 4K 60HZ I would expect IPlayer to switch it 1080P 50HZ or at least just 50HZ which it does seem to do for me...?

 

The channels app does it fine (for HDHOMERUN)

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Hi

 

the app is very dated. Please update the app for Apple TV, a much cleaner interface and the capability to search shows and last watched through Apple TV. It’s very clunky and not user friendly. This is why I am not updating my subscription. 

 

Great sevice but let down by the old dated app currently on Apple TV.

According to the app store, This app was last upadated in 2015.. The lack of support is just not worth subscribing for.. 

 

To be honest i'd subscribe to the service if it was integrated into the TV app on the Apple tv.. for now i'll just stick with Netflix, Amazon Prime, iplayer, ITV OD and My5..

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

My local Sainsbury supermarket has a load of vouchers for sale so ive bought 2 £15 now tv card vouchers, 1 card gives 3 months entertainment, at a fiver a month its worth the hassle on the apple app but not for full price, I have done online searches and there is a lot of deals around with vouchers etc for now tv. I wont be paying full price again. Another tip if you are subscribing if you go to cancel and on the options say you can't afford it they always give you a deal to stay, I've done this a few times to in the past and then just cancelled when that deals ends, in the past 18 months Ive only paid full price 3 times Smiley Happy

Yep, and at 4mbit in SDR. 

 

As a comparison, Netflix is 25mbit 4K Dolby Vision HDR with Dolby Atmos.

 

It's like a Robin Reliant vs a Tesla.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

That’s really just appalling considering the other services on offer..

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I was actually seriously considering subscribing which lead me back to this forum.. but considering the following:

 

No Full HD option (let alone 4K & HDR)

No surround sound

No user options (watched lists, favourites, episode tracking, etc..)

Out of date app

No Apple TV app integration

 

I think I’ll pass for a while longer.. it really is a poor service all round.. the Channel 5 app is better than this, and the service is free.!! Lol..
