sky sports channels missing?

Hi all, I have the nowtv sports package but when I look at the sky app it shows skysports1, skysports2, etc.

 

These are not showing on nowtv sports. Am I missing something?

Hi @daveyboy 

What Premier League game are you after? 

Where tonight's PL Matches are on BT Sports and not Sky Sports.

Hi @daveyboy 

What playback device are you using ?

There is a NOWTV App for Hong Kong which has Sky Sports 1 etc and is nothing to do with NOW in the UK.

The App you are after says NOW (not Sky) and should look something like in the image below.

thanks, I'm watching on a smart tv in the uk. Also logged in on my Mac and the same channels. I had expected the same sky channels.

Hi @daveyboy 

So both your Smart TV and Mac is showing Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2 etc ?

Or is it just the Smart TV or Mac ?

What's the make and model of the Smart TV and is the NOW App identical to the image I posted ?

yes the app image identical the one posted. Just checked on my iPhone and the same. I don't see skysports1 etc. so I can't see any of the premier games. All I am getting is the blackburn Blackpool game

so I downloaded a sky tv app to see which sky sports channels were there. Currently showing west hamvTott, liverpoolvnewcastle, man city and wolves on sky sports 1,2,4,5

I see none of these channels on my nowtv sports. I had expected it to be sky sports but appears  to be not the same

Your better to download the Sky Go app. Should look like this, you don’t need any logins for it.

it's asking for a sky username and password. I don't have sky. I have sky spots on nowtv which appears to not be a full sky sports version.

The NowTV app looks like this:-

You want the Now app, albeit it is on NowTV.com:-

Can you post a screenshot of what the app you have looks like?

Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it. Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now. That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.

I see what you posted. The only game I can watch live is the blackburn one. The others showing on the sky tv app show a list of premier games tonight.

You don’t need to log in to use the guide. 
Like you I don’t have a Sky account but I use this for a handy TV guide.

Hi @daveyboy 

Sounds like it's the NOW TV App from Hong Kong or another country in the world which offers Sky and has nothing to do with Sky or NOW in the UK.

I use the Sky + App on my tablet and phone to see what's on Sky / NOW in the UK.

Here’s the Sky TV Guide:-

https://www.sky.com/tv-guide/20220831/4101-1

None of these channels have the names you quote; and all the channels there with ‘sky’ in the name are present on Now.

Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it. Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now. That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.

none show on my now app. This is odd.
