Re: We need Netflix and Spotify

Hi @Jordanjw14

Netflix is coming to the nowtv boxes and stick sometime this year.

Where the Spotify App via a premium subscription was on the nowtv boxes, but was removed about year and half to two years ago (don't know why it was removed, maybe it was a Spotify decision).

As above, Spotify used to be on NowTV and Netflix is finally coming at the end of this year. Spotify used to crash all the time so they removed it to fix it and never brought it back. I really hope they do though because it seems pointless paying for Spotify premium and not being able to play it on the TV. Even when it used to crash it was still better than nothing. Sky customers can get Spotify on their TV so it makes no sense why NowTV have not yet updated the app.

Surely it's up to Spotify to update the app, not NowTV who would only be 'hosting' the app?!?

Spotify isn't on Roku anymore either. If Spotify came back, they would probably have to re-release it on Roku first.

Roku does have a Deezer app though which is another music subscription, (in my opinion it is better).

If yoy really want Now Tv, Netflix, plus catchup on the one box then just grab the full Roku box. Exact same layout as the now tv box, £30 to buy, and as well as Netflix it can also give you access to Amazon Prime and Google Play Movies.

@Matty-B Gets it. This is what i bought my girlfriend for Uni and she loves it. Although there is no Spotify Support on it as Roku has stoppped developing the app completely. Such a shame as it really was a handy service to use.

Hey UK

Check out the following URL:-

If Spotify comes back to Roku then it should not be too long before the Now TV devices get it as well.
