TV guide Live channels ?

Anyone know why the Live channel only has a Now / Next display surely they could push the ball out and have a whole day’s coverage for each channel. As Sky are never done shoving it up your A### how great SkyQ is you would tend to think they could pull there thumb out and give there NowTv customers something in return.

And there you have it in a nutshell.

 

NowTV is a deliberately cut-down service designed to be inferior to SkyQ in a number of ways, so Sky can snag some further revenue from those who are fundamentally (if I may use that word in both senses 😜) immune to SkyQ’s blandishments, without cannibalising those who might well be attracted to their rather different delivery method.

 

Now/Next versus full EPG; 720p versus 4K;no recording capability; no red button Sports; no catchup Sports; the labyrinthine complexities of account management where cancelling Passes is a crapshoot, there is no telephone support, and Live Chat cut you off (as far as I can tell) for typing any letter of the alphabet;

 

those are the not-so-hidden costs of the flexibility and value for money that NowTV undoubtedly represents 😁
