@Anonymous User both are the wrong URL, you need "www.nowtv.com"

I wasn't on www.nowtv.com when I did that screen grab. Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 11.57.39.png

Also doesn't explain Firefox.

Re: problem with microsoft silverlight using Apple iMac

Hi @Anonymous User

 

Can you try going into Safari Properties>  In the "Advanced" section there is an option labeled "Stop plug-ins to save power" (or something similar)> Uncheck that box and restart Safari. 

 

Can you also tell us your iOS and Silverlight versions?

Re: problem with microsoft silverlight using Apple iMac

I can't watch a film on firefox or safari. What's going on please? I have done the 'always allow' and installed the new sliverlight plug-in.

 

I'm also getting a message saying 'infection blocked' from my anti virus as it things there's a suspicious .dll file trying to run, will we get a discount on our direct debit please as I can't use the service.

 

This is the error:

http://watch.nowtv.com/xap/2.1.5792.27600/player.xap

 

File: Overmirth.LiveTv.dll

 

What is this that is trying to run? Silverlight?

Re: problem with microsoft silverlight using Apple iMac

@Anonymous User what antivirus do you have? The overmirth.livetv.dll is used with Silverlight to play the video and has always been there and is also used with Sky Go.

Re: problem with microsoft silverlight using Apple iMac

@Anonymous User Avast is falsing flagging a file used alongside Silverlight.

I'd suggest whitelisting NOW TV

 

  1. Open the Avast user interface and go to ‘Settings‘ » ‘General
  2. Find the tab ‘EXCLUSIONS‘ and add specific websites or URLs in the ‘Urls‘ tab and enter *.nowtv.com/*
