Are you talking the promos for Sky/NOW content that lasts around 30 seconds?
Or are you referring to live TV with adverts?
If it’s the latter this will never go away regardless of boost or not. As boost is designed to take away third party adverts from on demand only.
It’s simple, you mentioned recording shows.
That means your recording live Tv which comes with adverts.
Boost takes away adverts from on demand ONLY. And that is only third party adverts from on demand, promos for Sky/NOW content at the start is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Is it really too much trouble to simply select the next episode?
Toddler, Peppa Pig, yes.
A terminology issue only. @Flutter likely means On Demand, as contrasted with Live, but has used the word Recorded for this instead.
And likely means Promos, not Ads. @Flutter is your viewing interrupted by ads (for third-party commercial products like washing-up liquid), or merely preceded by promos for other Now programmes?
It’s a real pain that these are unskippable, though.
My questions were perfectly valid in my opinion, as you only now just stated the device you were talking about. With BT shows can be recorded on the BT TV YouView box, that is why I kept going on about recordings etc.
Will just leave it at that, however I will apologise for the misunderstanding of the terminology used.
That being said, I agree 100% with you regarding the picture quality of the player for windows. Still have no idea why no full blown app with 1080p is created.
Because PCs and Macs are eminently hackable, and Now don’t want Full HD/5.1 versions of their programming escaping into the wild?
So best not to allow it on those platforms at all, rather than chance their copy protection being blown?
It is allegedly a streaming platform therefore it should be the qame as any other streaming platform, you should watch it on the site. Something I didn't mention was how sick I got of the app crashing and having to go back on to the site to get it to work again. Antiquated service charging the same as Netflix, Amazon and dare I say even Disney plus has better value for money.
Anyway I decided to keep a list of the ads I was being forced to watch. Remembering this is after I paid my £9.99 to Now TV (just for clarity). If I am having to watch ads every 20 minutes I should not have to pay for a subscription. Here's this is the list watching only one 7 episode long season and remembering they are repetitive as well.
A book named 'Triple Cross'
Chanel No 5
Bleu de Chanel
House of Bruar
I hope this clarifies what I mean by ads and I honestly think I should get a refund on my money paid. No further responses required really, I'm aware I've been ripped off, the end
To have advert free on demand content you need boost. This has been mentioned to you.
Do I agree paying £9.99 and then having to pay another £5 on top of that for advert free experience absolutely not. It is how it is though.
You can try and speak to staff to ask for a refund. However I can guarantee you that you won’t get a refund. They will tell you to have no adverts on demand content you have to take out boost.
What you need to bear in mind is that Netflix has just launched adverts into their package. Disney+ are doing the exact same thing next year.
It’s only a matter of time for Paramount+ to do the same.
All that NOW has done is beat them all to it.
