Now tv stick

Hi I got a Now tv stick from Legoland the other day and all she said was I would have to set up an account and then plug it in. Well I’ve done all that but now my screen is purple with the Now tv logo on it and it won’t change. I thought it might have been loading so I’ve left it for 30mins but it still hasn’t changed. And I’ve reset it but still nothing. Can anyone help??

Re: Now tv stick

@Moviemaddness27 No worries, wasn't sure if by reset you just meant you'd unplugged it. Have you connected the USB cable to the power supply, as it's possible it can't draw sufficient power if just connected to a USB port on the TV. Might also be worth just trying it on a different TV in the house. Otherwise I'd suggest popping onto live chat to see what they suggest and possibly look at a replacement. You can get to live chat from the Contact Us page

(expand the Anything Else section at the bottom for options)

Unfortunately there are issues with long wait times on live chat at the moment, so you may need to try later. I'll also tag @Tony-D from the NOW TV Team as he might be able to respond to you direct on here (not sure when he is around tho).

@Moviemaddness27 There's a setup guide to the stick here that you may find useful

https://help.nowtv.com/article/set-up-your-now-tv-smart-stick

However if it's stuck on the purple loading screen that's not normal, I'd try resetting the stick by pressing in the reset button (while it's connected and showing the screen) for around 10 seconds until you see the stick restart, and see if that helps.

Re: Now tv stick

Hi Andy thanks
But I’ve tried this. And I’m getting frustrated you know that it’s not working. My now tv box great when I had one but this is very different!
If you can think of anything else It would be greatly appreciated 😊

Hi @Moviemaddness27 How are you powering the stick? Hopefully it's not a physical fault at this point

Sorry for the late response @Moviemaddness27 Can you try plugging the power cable into a USB port on your TV and trying then? Thanks
