GAA On Demand?

Are the GAA games available on demand?  Can’t search for the game at the weekend and it was only broadcast once clashing with premier league game. Search doesn’t help.

@schnapps yes, strange no rugby union either.  Maybe if England had played barbarians then there would have been rugby union on demand.

Re: GAA On Demand?

Hi @SweetBlitz 

 

If the GAA games are not uploaded to the NowTV video on demand service within 48 to 72 hours then i doubt they will be on NowTV Sports VOD 😠.

 

I enjoy my Rugby Union and wanted to follow the Mitre 10 cup competition in New Zealand and because the majority of the games are on around 3am to 6am and not repeated at anytime during the week at more sociable times by Sky, then i have missed them and spoilt me following this competition 😠.

 

It's not only the Mitre 10, but the recent New Zealand v Australia tests where not available on VOD (though for these two games i managed to get my backside out of bed at 3am in the early hours in the morning to watch them and suffered through the rest of the day with sleep deprivation).

 

I flagged this up with NowTV Team Management about why no Rugby Union and they never came back to me to even to say we don't have VOD rights for Rugby Union with the rights holder.

Re: GAA On Demand?

@schnapps GAAGO don't have UK rights for GAA games on Sky.  RTE don't either.  So Sky have exclusive rights and only show the Dublin game at the same time as the Manchester United game.  And given that pretty much half of Dublin support both it is odd that the GAA game did not have a re-run. I mistakenly watched the football as generally avoiding a GAA score is easier.

 

Anyway, won't make that mistake next weekend. Will watch Cork v Waterford live. Fortunately it is on long before France v Ireland, though Liverpool v West Ham is squeezed in between the two for half of Ireland.

Re: GAA On Demand?

Hi @SweetBlitz 

 

It's th Rugby Union games in New Zealand or in Argentina  that causes me the problem because of the time difference.

 

No problem getting up around 8am to watch the Australia v New Zealand for the next two tests games or watching any Super Rugby matches that are hosted in South Africa or Australia.

 

Looking forward to the final round of the six Nations (though my team Wales are way out of the running with a poor campaign 😠).

Re: GAA On Demand?

Found it with the search on the Now TV stick.  But not obvious how to get it any other way.  Not showing on normal on demand screen on iPad.

Re: GAA On Demand?

Hi @SweetBlitz 

 

Thanks for the heads up 👍.

 

Well spotted, i found three Mitre 10 Rugby Games by using the search feature with the * Star button on the remote or the search box towards the bottom of the home screen page.

 

However the search didn't work when using the voice remote or the hidden search tab by pressing the back button on the remote which is the search method i normally tend to use.

 

I wished NowTV mentioned this when i complained about no Rugby Union on VOD where i have missed the first 7 rounds of this competition 😠😠😠.

 

Like you said there is no option to find these games by going to Sports VOD on my tablet or smartphone via the NowTV App which would be the most obvious method to seek out these games.

Re: GAA On Demand?

On my NowTV 4K Smart Box i can only find three Mitre 10 rugby games on Video on Demand when using the search workaround which @SweetBlitz kindly found.

 

Where if i use the search feature on the NowTV App on my Android Tablet i can't find no results, where when i use the search feature on the NowTV App on my Youview box i can find eight Mitre 10 games

 

@Simon-J can you explain the inconsistency across different devices and why isn't Rugby Union one of the categories if you can find rugby union VOD games when searching on certain devices ?

 

Edit - Just tried my NowTV 4K box again and for some reason it now shows the eight games identical to my Youview Box NowTV App (still no results when using my Android Tablet NowTV App).

 

Wished somebody from NowTV would have suggested this workaround about 6 to 8 weeks ago when i questioned why there was no Rugby Union VOD category where i missed two thirds of the Mitre 10 competition 😠😠😠.
