Hi @Anonymous User@Anonymous User@jobbie8@Andy@SeeMoreDigital

 

Thanks for getting in touch, and sorry for any confusion!

 

We're working to see if we can make all these Catch Up episodes available until the end of the day, for those trying to sneak in a few more before it expires. Please keep an eye out for updates to the service.

 

To explain, all the episodes of Westworld are due to expire today. The differences in time are down to how the provider has supplied them.

Specifically with Episode 10, it was simulcast with the US when first broadcast, meaning the start of its typical 30 day Catch Up period was early in the morning. Of course that also meant it expired earlier too.

 

We'd love to have it back as a Box Set in future! We have no set date for this yet, but we've been able to get other HBO/Sky Atlantic shows before. 🙂

 

Thanks,

Jason

Welcome to the forum.

 

Yes the episodes will expire in 11 days so if you want to catch it this time round make sure you watch soon. The series is likely to be back as a box set some time in the future but no details on when that will be yet.

Hi.  I saw this post.  My wife and i have only just started watching westworld (and the Young Pope) and I now see it (and the young pope too) will not be available in a few days.  How are we supposed to finish watching it???

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately both those shows are on catch-up which means they expire so many days after airing. We've been quite lucky with those two shows as rather than dropping off 30 days after airing they've all stayed on for longer, but if you haven't started Westworld you're not realistically going to be able to fit that in now, you,ll need to wait for it coming back on as a boxset. No idea on when that will be yet but keep an eye on the blog which has a coming soon post each month


http://watch.nowtv.com/blog

and on this thread which lists new boxsets when they appear

http://community.nowtv.com/t5/Entertainment/Boxset-Information/m-p/406610#M25455

 

As for Young Pope you've got 11 days left on that so if you can manage an episode each day you'll be able to watch that before it leaves.

  1. You can watch it when it is broadcast on Sky Atlantic like GoT is.  Check for next transmission date http://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings
  2. You can wait for it to return to Now TV, but be warned it took nearly a year for Vinyl to return
  3. You can get a 30 love film trial and watch it on DVD when it is released (they normally send 2 DVDs for a TV series at a time) - This is how I watched Walking Dead Season 6.
  4. You can buy episodes off amazon, wuaki, google play etc. https://www.justwatch.com/uk will show all options.  google did have a 75% discount on TV episodes, but may have expired now.  
  5. Watch it on HBO Now for $15/month [only accessible in the U.S. and certain U.S. territories]
  6. And all sorts of other ways that can't be mentioned on a public forum.

Given 6.  I am surprised that HBO shows aren't constantly available.  Perhaps they think people will buy the DVDs which may happen in the case of Westworld (no known release date yet).  

 

Have to admit I have given up on Six Feet Under ever getting transmitted anywhere again and bought the second hand DVDs which all cost less than £5/season on Amazon including postage.

Hi @Anonymous User

 

Alas, not all of them... 😞

 

We had the full box set in 2014 for some time, but it hasn't graced us since. No promises, but I'll nudge the teams to let them know there's still interest!

 

Thanks,

@Jason-C  ah I only signed up in December 2014.  I'm a Johnny Come Lately 🙂   

 

Still I do seem to have seven months to watch The West Wing.  Better start now!

Started watching Westworld, which is a great show, on new years day.
I've got to episode 8, but this morning episode 10 has gone already. Episode 9 has 9 hrs left with episode 1 has got 1 day left?

How come the latest episodes are being removed first?

Really disappointed with NOW TV on not being able to let subscribers access programmes that they originally paid for. Westworld being one such example. Hardly a great advert for attracting people to the service in my humble opinion. I would be happy to pay more to access the episodes as I really want to watch unseen episodes but that option does not appear to be available unless I'm mistaken ?

Disappointed subscriber.

With respect @Anonymous User, Westworld started at the beginning of October on Sky Altantic.... Where have you been?

I am only halfway through because I waited until a few episodes were broadcast before I started watching as I prefer not to wait for the next episode where possible.  Had hoped to watch all of them but yuletide meant kids stay up later and by the time they get off to bed.   Still they are on Amazon, and I have a pile of digital credit to use by end of January, so I can watch them there.

 

I never managed to watch Vinyl when that was broadcast, but now it is available, so once I get through The Walking Dead (almost completed season 4), that is likely to be next.  Just a shame HBO Now is only available in the US, but I suppose if it was in the UK I wouldn't bother with Now TV.

Try Amazon Prime.  Less than £2 per episode, and if you build up a bit of digital credit by having slow delivery you can watch them for nowt.

 

Of course if you have a Roku streaming stick, Amazon is on there as well as Now.

I've noticed in my TV magazine that Westworld is being shown from the start again next Tuesday, 10th Jan @ 9.00pm on Sky Atlantic.

 

Don't know if it'll end up in catch-up again, but it should at least give those who've missed an episode or two a way to see them all, even if it's only one a week.

 

That's so long as Now TV has the rights for a second showing!!!

Welcome to the forum.

 

Well spotted. It looks like that's now been replaced by a tribute to the late great Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, but hopefully it will be on the week after. If it's anything like previous re-runs of HBO shows it won't be added to catch-up afterwards but it will be available to watch live. Luckily I managed to get the last episode in the day before it went, but as you say quite a few people were caught out by the discrepancy in timing.
