Comcast is wanting to push its own business model into the Sky territories.
Regardless what country it is there is nothing much we can do, apart from either accept and try get discounts or move onto another streaming service.
Move on it is then, thanks. 👍
Only check NowTV occasionally to see what new moves are out, usually disappointing selection anyway except once in a blue moon something worth my subscription. But no HD and basic sound... if its that kind if move then I'd buy the blurry with Dolby Atmos etc, or UHD if really good film.
Yes NOWTV, I said UHD and Dolby Atmos...... wonder how much extra they'd try to extort from its customer base for those options? which by the way, have been out for years already.
Sky NowTV 'Basic, backward, extortionate'

it is a strange decision in light of the loss of so much content and increased competition that the reaction of Now is to reduce streams and put adverts at the start of every show.
Also boost is counter intuitive to the no contract model. When I have them, my cinema, entertainment and sports have different renewal dates, and so does boost. With Netflix, the "boost" is on one pass, so you pay £6 basic, £10 improved, £14 top level, so it is simple. It does not work with 4 different passes. Or 5 if you add in a sports day pass where you have to pay for a month boost. I suspect the boost take up on Now is less than 10% of customers, so telling a large majority of your customers to stump up or suck it up isn’t that wise. Boost should have been left at £3 during the transition from 2 streams to 1 stream. At £5 it looks like a rip off.
I suspect that once 15th July comes there will be a large number of posts and a large number of cancellations.
As discussed throughout this thread if you have boost you’ll no longer get third party adverts.
The ads I’ve seen are Ocado, NOWTV content and betting crap.
I can’t believe I’m paying to watch adverts.
I’m on a discounted membership but even still, this is absolutely ridiculous.
Cancelling before my next billing month.
How much more money do they need?
Are you dense? They’re specifically complaining that Now are advertising other Now services and shows on other now channels, but they aren’t skimp able. Amazon Hulu paramount etc all let you skip the ads for their own content. It’s a p*ss take you can’t skip the now “promos” as you like to call them. Stop making excuses.
im honestly ending my subscription after this month. Nearly finished the sopranos but now are taking the absolute p*ss with this nonsense. The price we pay for this is not worth it in comparison to other services who don’t force ads down our throat, or require our location to view content on mobile networks IN THE COUNTRY OF PURCHASE. absolute nonsense.
I have Paramount+ and you can’t skip their 30 second promos at the start of their content.
