Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

My voucher has nearly expired so I logged into my acount to cancel, and they have offered me 4 months entertainment pack for £3.49 a month, so I clicked yes. For this price the poor quality of the app is worth it but not a full price. I f you really want NOWtv look for the deals, I still have a £15 voucher to use that allowa 3 months entertainment.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

[ Edited ]

Since Now tv have pretty much abandoned the Apple TV boxes I’ve deliberately stopped watching any new series on Sky the last few years. Happy days, I’m at that point where I can grab the few remaining shows I watch off iTunes instead, and Now Tv can be cancelled. I didn’t want this, I just wanted to have a bit of respect as a customer, but apparently Now Tv think they’re omnipotent. Sorry, I’ve taken my money elsewhere. I wonder just how many others have done the same over the last few years because you’ve failed to give us a half decent app that we deserved as paying customers. (I certainly bet it was certainly enough to cover the minor costs of developing a new app!)

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Its a great shame that Sky continue to snub their Apple Tv customers Smiley Sad. It would be great if somone at Now Tv could just give us an honest answer as to why they will not update the app. Smiley Wink

 

I have been with Now Tv almost since the start and would love to have a better app, even it just allowed the option of My Tv. So not asking much.Smiley Very Happy

 

So the qustion today from a loyal subscriber is - what is the reason for Now Tvs unlove of the app.

 

On a happier note looking forward to watching The Hurricane Heist tonight. Smiley Happy

The Hurricaine Heist was excellent, well done Sky Cinema. Intrestingly the Apple product placement was everwhere in the film LOL

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I am a NOW TV user. Recently I took the Amazon Prime trial up. V impressed as it worked straight away through the Apple TV App allowing us to catch up with the next episode in the series! 

We are now seriously thinking of ditching NOW TV and going over to Amazon Prime. 

 

Which of course means that we will not be spending our money with Sky? Don’t understand the complacency shown by this commercial operator to keep ahead of the game with reference to upgrading the NOW TV App?

 

Please NOW TV, upgrade your app for your customers. Thank you.

"It would be great if somone at Now Tv could just give us an honest answer as to why they will not update the app"

 

They’ll never say this in a public forum, but it’s clearly about control. It’s relatively trivial to port an iOS app to tvOS, and so the only logical explanation must be that NOW TV doesn’t care about supporting Apple TV.

 

In short, they want you using a NOW TV box, not the Apple TV. Amazon got of its high horse about this a while back. NOW TV should too, but probably won’t.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

@Mary-E Hi there, is there any update available on an updated Apple TV app or upgrading streaming to 1080p?

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

And 5.1 audio would be a must. With Netflix & Amazon offering surround sound & 1080 as standard and the added benefit of Amazons TV app integration, Now Tv truly looks technologically dated.
