I've just started using NowTV to watch GoT, like many others I assume, but as someone being used to Netflix and Amazon Prime, this app feels and handles terribly. The Xbox app didn't work at all for the last 2 weeks, found many complaints about that online too, and now I have to watch ads before the show which I cannot skip. As soon as GoT is over my subscription is cancelled. I've already set a reminder in my phone.
Couldn’t agree more about the adverts before any program on catch up.
What really grinds my gears is the constant adverts of the EPL, which by the way I have literally zero interest in, would rather sit and talk to a wall than watch it.
If they had to plug adverts at the start of the shows I’d rather it be relating to your watchlist. Ideally adverts can do one! I left Sky cause of the constant adverts they shoved into on demand and if Now Tv continues I’ll be doing the same
I understand they aren't adverts for Fairy washing up liquid, but more of trailers for products of Sky.
However its the principle of plugging in these "adverts" at the start that are making me second guess my subscirption. Even my wife is getting fed up with them, espeically when it is "adverts" for the EPL (I hardly watch football and if I did it would be Hearts and Scotland games) so the forced advertising of a league that I will never watch is frankly pi$sing me off.
If there was an option to skip the adverts I wouldn't mind so much.
Thankfully I have not had any "adverts" during the show, however if the do continue to put them on at the start and continue to advertise the EPL (would rather it was Sky sports in general!) then I will seriously consider cancelling my passes completely.
If Now TV actually improved their service with 1080p, 5.1 surround sound, Sky Sports catch up, then and only them I wouldn't mind the "adverts" too much. However to pay for a half decent service whilst forced to watch a trailer for the EPL everytime I watch any show is too far.
Apologies, I had to have a rant!
