Sorry to revive an old thread, but I wouldn't mind betting that its the film's audio that is poor
I watched Interstellar at the cinema when it was released and they had it turned up so loud that when the music and louder sections played, it actually damaged my hearing. I now have permanent tinnitus in my left ear.
I had a decibel meter on my phone and it was regularly hitting 110db.
We complained to the Council, who instructed Dobly to inspect the equipment, who said it was calibrated correctly and the film was being played as the director had intended!
I've also noticed low/poor volume on about 50% of the movies I've tried to watch. Each time I have to abandon the movie to try and find one with better,audible sound. If this continues, I'm going to cancel my subscription.
I watch on my laptop and could do with subtitles. Netflix and Amazon both have subtitles as well as good volume.

Personally speaking I can't say I've had such audio issues when my NOW TV 'black' box is directly connected to my TV. Please confirm your playback device?
I have the same issue when I watch movies on Now Tv.
Any other streaming is fine but for some reason the volume on Now Tv is very low. For example I usually watch my tv on sound level 10 to 14 . On Now Tv I turn it up to max 100 and still not loud enough.
This is across all devices eg,
LG smart tv
Toshiba laptop (windows 10)
It is sometimes just the speech but generally both speaking and music.
My tv speakers are fine with everything but Now Tv 😞.
I am listening through a Samsung tv connected optically to a Samsung soundbar and woofer
on tv I normally won’t put the volume higher than forty as the neighbours start to complain
but while watching now TV movies the volume is so muffled I’m have to turn the volume up to 100 and even then the sound is muffled
I seen it talked about on the internet here and there on various forums and including this one the now tv forum.
But no one seems to come back with a answer is it that SKY or now tv just don’t care about there paying customers
Come on give us the answers we are looking for !
If it is has been said before down to compression of the signal then tell us then we can all cancel our now tv packages and look else where for a provider with better sound .
