Entertainment Pass Changes: We are losing 3 channels

So let me get this straight,

 

You are removing 3 channels and you are adding only 1 and you expect us to pay the same amount?!?

 

How is this fair? You should add at least another channel like  SyFy or AMC.

Re: Entertainment Pass Changes: We are losing 3 channels

Sky will be launching Viceland onto NOW TV in September so may get another new channel before then and am glad they removing kids channels to new kids pass which great idea how most NOW TV customers don't want to watch kids channels

Hi @jezza811  

Getting AMC on now TV would be impossible at the moment as BT currently has exclusivity rights to the channel in the UK. Sci-fi is possible, but it would be expensive, so there is a rather small likelihood of it being added. Sci-fi is owned by NBC universal.

 

Remember that some channels are more expensive than others. Kids channels with the exception of the Disney branded channels don't tend to be expensive

Sky 2 maybe then?

 

Or take the NatGeo and Viceland (I don't want them) and give us Syfy 🙂 

I will even give you Sky Arts and Gold ... lol

Re: Entertainment Pass Changes: We are losing 3 channels

I've just seen the update on the Entertainment package.

Wont lie, the loss of Disney Channel in my house is a big thing, i hope at least this can go into the kids bundle.

 

I see why a kids bundle is a sensible idea, however taking this out and not replacing these with a variety of new channels that cater for the majority is a bit of a bitter pill to swallow, seen as though the kids stuff is coming out.

 

Its like downsizing but not reducing the price or giving any clues to more new channels to come. 

 

A little disappointed from my perspective that is all.

I like Gold so we'll keep that one eh 😉 agree Viceland looks like a rubbish channel, we have enough sensational crap with MTV.

Re: Entertainment Pass Changes: We are losing 3 channels

Just sounds like a way to squeeze more money out of the customers to me
I have two kids under the age of 10 so now I will have to pay extra for them to keep watching!!
Which ever way you look at it I will be paying more for the same content
Also I got a mail saying I would have been entitled to a 4 month trial but my pass had been cancelled which is rubbish

I have simply applied a voucher code to my pass that I got with a new NOWTV box I bought, it wasn't free I still paid for it!!

Cant say I'm impressed with this at all, lets see how impressed I am when they announce the kids pass price??
