You tried deleting and reinstalling the app?

 

Tried unplugging your router for a few minutes?

Re: Intermittent Pixilation during Leeds MUFC game

No It must be the app or the service. I'm watching a live stream on YouTube about the game with no pixilation. Haven't moved the iPad the only thing I've done is closed the Now TV app. I'm never impressed with either the software nor the stream quality from Now. But then I'm not impressed with any of the Sky service when they have to use BT's network. Having said that I use Plusnet but I'm only 400 metres by wire/fibre from the exchange.

Re: Intermittent Pixilation during Leeds MUFC game

I'm afraid neither of those links is of little value. I just made sure the iPad was updating software & although set to auto update it wasn't. So I updated but no difference.

 

I've now installed the latest app on my Android phone running Android 9.0.1 & again no difference. I'm not going to reboot my hub (routers don't exist in a home environment only within large complex networks like ISP's, hubs in the home only get as complex as NAT) because everything else is fine.

 

There is probably an issue somewhere within Now's  point of presence either locally or elsewhere further up the line.  It'll probably need to get really bad before they can isolate where on the network it is.  BT Sport has it's own issues & they own most of the network. The only good streaming services seem to be Netflix, Amazon Prime & Google's offerings like YouTube.

 

If any else has the same issue then maybe they'll see this & we can compare notes. But then problems like this often just disappear.

You are best to head onto live chat and and complain.

The whole point of the links were to show that there is a known issue with sports stream on NOW.

So despite that it was with other devices the links are still valid.
