Re: Now tv app and home missing



NowTV have fubared it at their end. Various suggested fixes, all involving factory resets, have apparently worked for some people but not others.


How many decades ago was it drummed into me that you never release a software update just before, or during, a holiday?


But it seems every generation has to learn this anew. And at our expense.

Re: Now tv app and home missing

I have had the same issue today, but silly me i thought maybe i'd sat on the remote and deleted apps by accident. I've re-added the mysteriously disappeared Now tv app. It wouldn't load, so i checked for updates. Installed updates, then it started up. I started watching one of the new Dads Army episodes. It was playing fine, but about halfway through the app just froze then rebooted itself. It's loaded up again now, gawwwd knows what they've done this time. Probably had Pike in the office doing work experience!
