Demand 5 vs My 5 on Now tv Smart box

Hi, hoping someone can help.

i've been utterly unable to find X-Files on catchup on the Demand 5 app on now tv smart box.

I've can see the episodes on the My 5 app on my tablet and my samsung tv.

I've looked in now tv app store, there's no My 5, only Demand 5.

 

is this correct?

is there only a really out of date Demand 5 app available, and not My5????

 

and why are certain series available on My5 and not Demand 5?

what on earth is the difference between to the 2 apps?

 

thanks and regards,

@Samxool

 

The branding on the box version is still Demand5 as Channel 5 haven't got around to updating it but it is up to date.

 

The X-Fules is on the NOW TV Demand 5 version, easiest way to find it is from the Recent tab at the bottom (it's currently also third on Featured although that changes).

 

The Search function is very precise, entering X Files or X-Files doesn't work, you have to start from the beginning of the show's proper title eg 'The X' will find it.

Demand 5 is still on Freesat and my Panasonic Freeview Play tv, neither have been updated to My5 as yet. It's not just NowTV who don't have it. Personally I prefer the layout of Demand 5 which I find clearer and easier to read.

I wasn't aware the stick had My5. I thought all the NowTV devices were the same, especially as the Rokus also only carry Demand 5.

 

If My5 is on the stick I'd expect it on the Smart boxes sooner rather than later.

Hi @robert1997

 

I don't own a nowtv smart stick, so I can not confirm either way if the My5 App is currently available on the stick or is coming soon.

 

Where I suppose there is a clue from this outer packing box photo of the smart stick, where I did ask the NowTV Team about the My5 App on other nowtv boxes and I didn't get a definitive answer either way.

No My 5 app on my stick, just the same Demand 5 as other NOW TV devices. 

 

How come everyone is talking about a My5 app all of a sudden, is there some special feature I've not heard of?
