How long after a live sporting event is the on demand available? (Ie if I miss an NFL game because i can’t stay up late can I watch it the next morning?)

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

The North v South New Zealand Rugby Match was live on Saturday morning and took NowTV until Monday morning to get it added to catch up where it said 5 days remaining 😠.

 

So i would guess most full replays would be 7 days (unless NowTV have a different agreement in place with the NFL).

Also forgot to say that even with a HD Boost Pass the catch up playback is only 25fps 😠😠😠.

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

The delay from the live event finishing to be added to NowTV catch up might be content dependent, where i noticed the Italian F1 GP full replay which was on Sunday afternoon and is up and saying 5 days left (don't know when or what time it was added to catch up).

 

It's the same with NowTV Entertainment it might depend if it's a popular TV show or if NowTV are relying on the Content provider to upload the content onto their servers (some TV shows and Studios seems quicker than others).

 

Yep i hate 25fps sports playback with a vengeance, where it totally spoils watching fast moving sports.

I am enjoying sports on demand. I watch football and cricket so far.

Can someone from NOWTV please explain why Sport on Demand content clearly marked as 'U' requires the parental pin to be entered prior to watching? 

 

Isn't this going a step too far?
