Over the top reaction would be my thoughts 🙂

 

£3 for 6 kid channels is a good deal, if you have an entertainment pass they appear to be softening the blow with free passes so you aren't out of pocket if you have prepaid for a number of months.

Re: Changing the entertainment Kids package

My thoughts are that kids content shouldn't be forced on everybody , which is pretty much how it was before. Now TV are only doing what other providers do with BT and talk talk, you don't get kids channels with the base package. Those that don't want kids content shouldn't have to pay for it, and those that do want it should pay its as simple as that. 

 

I do appreciate that some people aren't happy with what is in effect of price rise, but if you take a step back and think about it was it right to expect those that don't have kids to pay the kids content? I do think a lot of people have overreacted . Given that there will be a lot more kids content available

 

This is one of those situations where you're damned if you do and damned if you don'tSmiley Sad

Re: Changing the entertainment Kids package

Can't agree with the other people paying for the kids packages line.  There are channel I don't watch currently but don't feel that I'm paying for other peoples' content.

 

Bottom line three channels taken away and one poor channel added with no price adjustment.

Re: Changing the entertainment Kids package

Thanks for the responses.

 

I would agree with you about paying for other peoples Kids packages - if they were to drop the main price, which they dont appear to be (at least from what i have seen, i could be wrong, i will go back and check later) but in effect its brought the total "package"  cost to nearly £10 + £10 for films + whatever for sports (and while i agree the film package is slightly better than others - i still dont think the "total package" cost is worth 3X the competitions. + Netflix and amazon "sector off" the kids stuff - surely with skys resources they could do somrthing smarter - mind you increasing your revenue some would argue is the smartest thing. 

 

Either way im not particulary happy about another price increase in a few months time.

Re: Changing the entertainment Kids package

How come, some people are getting an email saying they can have a 4 months free kids pass and other have not ( I am on a 5 month pass and not received anything )

 

Now whislt we dont use the current kids channels, we are are having the family over for the summer holidays with their kiddy winks and I would have used the kids channels then.

 

Does seem a bit unfair if you have purchased a pass for several months that advertise the channels then they are taken away.

 

I have been a long time supporter of Now Tv and this is the first time that I have thought, something is a little bit naughty here.

Re: Changing the entertainment Kids package

@nickmorc, there will also be people who've bought their pre-paid vouchers but are not in the 30 day period to apply them yet.

I agree this is the first time I've been unimpressed with Now's approach, even though it has minimal effect on myself due to which channels I actually watch.

It also makes me wonder about what other changes will be in store (levels of packages maybe, so to get the most popular content, you need to pay an additional premium).

 

Think they will lose some trust and good will here, if not revenue.
