How do I watch Now TV on my Panasonic Tvs?

I have just ordered broadband and phone line which are being delivered on the 26th March. I have also bought Now TV which starts straight away but how do I watch Now TV?

 

I am struggling with finding a definitive answer. I have one Panasonic Smart TV and another older Panasonic model. I am currently using Virgin Media that have a V^ box each and I have just cancelled that.

 

So how to watch now TV on my televisions? Any advice would be gratefully received .

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @mam2cat 

 

The Panasonic Smart TV's doesn't currently support the native NowTV App from the Panasonic Apps Store.

 

You will need to use a supported playback device from this list linked below.

Hi @schnapps 

 

Thanks for your help. 

It looks like it’s either a Now TV Stick or a Now TV box.

 

Do you know if you can record on either of these devices?

Hi @mam2cat 

 

No recording feature on either the nowtv stick or nowtv box (just a 30 minute live pause function).

 

If you have an entertainment or cinema pass then most content is available on demand so no need for a recording function.

 

The only device that allows you to record live nowtv channels is a BT Box via the BT TV Programme Guide where you need to be a BT TV customer with a NowTV bolt on package.

I thought I found a way around buying a stick - why not go to the Panasonic Web Browser & log in to my Nowtv account. Nope, when I take the cursor to My Account, Sign In, all the browser shows is a white window with the Nowtv address in the address bar

If no native app then can load nowTV on tablet or phone then use a  chromecast device plugged into hdmi port of Panasonic tv

If the device is not listed as a supported device on the below link, then that’ll answer your question to whether it’s been resolved or not.

Re: How do I watch Now TV on my Panasonic Tvs?

I am having the same problem with my brand new Panasonic TV bit frustrating when you buy something new and it doesn't support one of the main streaming platforms. I tried a workaround where you can purchase an app that allows you to mirror from my Apple Mac laptop to the TV. (Link here https://www.airbeam.tv/mirror-your-mac-screen/panasonic/) However, I tried the trial version and it mirrors the browser fine, I can mirror Netflix and Amazon Prime playing through the browser but Now TV always opens in an app and the in app screen just goes blank when you try to mirror it. Very annoying. I have read the thread above and no one seems to have found a way to solve it... Any body else got any other ideas?

 

Thanks,


Jack
