Is the TV guide likey to be improved? I find it very frustrating only being able to see "now & next" when I want to see what's on later, also the lack of channel numbers! having to scroll through is sooooooo annoying! when youknow the channel number you want it's so much easier to have a remote with a numeric keypad to select the channel you want.
I'd hoped to be able to do away with my youview box so I wasn't having to keep switching from one box to another - oh well -some you win
Dear NowTV Team
Can you, or will you, allow the Roku Media Player to be installed on our NowTV boxes?
As far as I understand, it will immediately give the USB port functionality which can be readily used by box owners. And all you would need to do is place the RMP in the App Store and possibly change it's name to either NowTV Media Player or just plain Media Player.
Also, could you place this post in the ideas section.
Is there anyway of searching for all the world drama in one place? I'm hard of hearing so the foreign drama's are perfect as they have built in subtitles. Searching through each channel on the entertainment package is becoming tedious and takes forever.
Surely there's an easier way?
Thanks in advance :-)
Can you please add the ability to skip the pre-show promos for future updates?
They're putting me off watching shows such as Southpark where there is one at the start of every single episode.
I agree that they can help us make the most out of our passes by showing us shows we might have missed, but within a few seconds:
Only about 1 times in 50 is there a show that I don't already know about, and if it did grab my attention I would keep watching the promo.
It would just be nice to have a choice in the matter instead of having to endure clips of something we have already seen or don't care about, when we just want to sit down and watch something in our free time.
I really think its time some kind of catchup service was offered with the sky sports package like the other packages. Considering its the most expensive package its not the most flexible. We are not asking for every single thing thats offered from the on demand section through a sky box but even a some content split over the different sports, the servers already have the content so half the work is done.
Thought this would be in the Ideas Board already but doesn't seem to be. A few people now use NOW TV exclusively via mobile data plans, for instance those with no fixed broadband connection at home, one who live on a boat, campsite etc. Others use mobile data plans for extended periods such as when on holiday in the UK and find that NOW TV consumes a large amount of data very quickly, often leading to extra costs or running out of data allowances.
It would be good if NOW TV could provide an SD-only, or 'mobile friendly' option in the apps to allow such users to reduce data usage when streaming content, in return for an SD only/lower resolution stream.
Come on guys, there are numerous requests on here for an app for Samsung TVs, there's really no excuse for not having one. Samsung are one of the biggest TV suppliers in the UK, surely you're missing a big market opportunity?
Can't imagine this would be too difficult because it is how sky and virgin implement the red button.
Add 8 channels (red Button 1-8) and whenever there is a live event stream it. Ditto Match Choice on Saturday evening.
A total win win because punters like me would get passese knowing they could watch their desired event and Now TV make more ca$h.
The box seems pretty good and I'm looking to ditch my aging freeview PVR.
Are there any plans to add recording freeview to a USB memory stick/hdd?
If it can already pause live tv for half hour then surely this isn't unfeasible?
No sweat do you want the whole thread moved over?
@Eddie-M I'm happy to let you do it however you think fit!!
Personally the whole thread probably doesn't need including as it currently contains lots of info about current sporting events which seem to be worthwhile discussion on the main forum.
Do you feel like starting a new idea and crediting @ken242 as the originator of the idea to keep it nice and simple? How about the following:
"Sky Sports Mix is currently available free of charge to Sky TV subscribers, and contains a range of sporting content, including some content not available for viewing on the premium Sky Sports channels. As sporting events often cross over from the premium channels to Sky Sports Mix could we have the channel included as part of the NOW TV Sports Passes to allow fans to enjoy sporting events uninterrupted and in full. Idea originally suggested by @ken242 "
Him id like to out forward the idea that sky sports content should include a catch up service as it costs more than regular sky sports and they do have a catch up service.
if they did i would be more likely to subscribe as more people are turning to altenat methods instead of paying £35 for a rip off service
I think something missing!!!
Like other provider such as Netflix, they offer movies with subtitle at a lower price!
Now TV should be able to offer that service for must of their movies and, this should normally help deaf people watching films...
This is a suggestion, but I couldn't seem to it post there. I'd like to suggest that expiry dates are put on all box sets as soon as they are added, so it's possible to plan viewing & work out if there's actually sufficient time to watch them given how much time an individual has avaiable. I looked at several at random - Betrayal, Brideshead Revisited, Lost, The Office S01 - none of these had expiry dates on. I appeciate you have the Leaving Soon section, but IMO it would be more useful to have the information to start with.
There are so many great shows I'm watching, and what really frustrates me is when I'm near the end of an episode, and say for example, it's a really sad, emotional ending, I get the annoying "Next Episode, Maybe Later, Watch Now" pop up. Totally ruins many endings for me and I'd really like the option to take this off, or at least delay the pop up until the credits actually start!
