Can I record content?

Hi All, can i ask if it is posible to record anything on the NowTV box and if so how is it done and where does Now TV store the recording.

 

Also, is there a detailed user manual anywhere. I apreciate there is plenty of help from the site but this takes so much time to navigate through it is to slow.

@mercedesamg there is no recording feature on the box, or with NowTV. However you'll find most of the live shows are already avaible on demand or are added shortly after being shown.

Re: New User Recording

Hi @mercedesamg 

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.  It's not possible to record from a NOW TV box.  With regards to a user manual, I'm not aware of one, having said that, if there is, no doubt another forum member/member of the NOW TV Team wil be able to point you in the right directionSmiley Happy

 

If there anything specific you'd like to know about the NOW TV box other than if recording of content is possible?

 

EDIT - was beaten to itSmiley Happy

Re: New User Recording

Hi there

 

I'm currently a Sky customer and want to bin that and join NOW TV (I realise this is still Sky) but wanted to know if I could still use my current Sky box to record stuff if I have cancelled my account.  If not how can I recored programmes?

 

Thanks.

Re: New User Recording

@KSB2 you would really need to ask these questions to Sky, but last time I checked a Sky+ box stopped recording and didn't let you watch any saved shows once you stopped paying. 

If you are after recording normal TV shows (like BBC, ITV, Five) you might want to invest in either a Freesat or Freeview recordable box. 

If you are after recording stuff from Sky, it's not possible with NOW TV and the only option is to hope that what you want is available as catchup (new content likely, reruns very unlikely).

Re: New User Recording

Hi, I've bought a NOW TV white box, does this allow catch up on sky1 as my internet doesn't get connected until 2 weeks after the new series of Arrow and The Flash start as it doesn't allow recording.

Thanks in advance

Re: New User Recording

@kizzi2975 yup you get catchup with the NOW TV boxes. The length of availability varies with each show and can be between 7-30 days. I'd expect Flash and Arrow both to be about 30.

Re: New User Recording

If you have Sky already but are ditching the service, you should still be able to get the free sat programs to supplement this. Unless of course you are having the dish removed.
