Hi mac1611,

Have you tried log out from the app, exit the app, turn off your TV, unplug it from the back and plug back in. Once the TV is up and running, please launch the app and try to sign back in. Thanks

@TAT no idea why, but ITV claim it's working as designed (I expect it'll be fixed in a future update). For now select the most recent episode, sit through the adverts, once the titles start press up and an option should appear to show "All previous episodes", select the correct one, wait for the adverts again, finally you are watching what you want.

Why can i only see certain programmes on itv player.If i go online and into itv player i can watch all the shows but on now tv i can only see a few? Also i dont have itv. Only itv2,3 etc.

@Stefleanne I'm guessing you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland. ITV is blocked by STV and UTV from having ITV1 in those regions. However if you change your postcode on the ITV app to somewhere in England or Wales you should be fine. 

As for the missing shows, for some bizarre reason ITV have programmed the app to only show the most recent episode, however starting that and hitting pause once the adverts have finished will bring up a list from the last 30 days.

ITV Player on NOW TV box only shows a limited number of available episodes - e.g. 3 episodes of "Barging Around" are available through a computer but only the latest one using NOW TV box.

 

Is there a way to solve this?

@kidnormal start the episode listed, once the adverts have played out hit pause. You'll now have a list of all the other episodes of the show.

Is there any possibility that STV Player will be added at some point in the future?

This is going to sound daft but can't find answer anywhere... Can you get normal channels with now tv, eg BBC, ITV etc? Set up my box tonight and don't know where to find them

@cherylbear I believe the iPlayer app now allows you to watch live, however the box, nor the NOW TV app were designed to watch live domestic channels.

Is there any subtitles in BBC & ITV iPlayers?

Trying to find previous episodes of downton abbey on now tv through tv but only seem to be able to watch last episode?!  Yet all episodes available on tablet through itv app?  Sort yourself out nowtv......thats why I got the box to watch catch up.....rapidly going off this service you provide

@Spriggs  You have to play one episode then, after the initial ads, press pause.  An option should appear with something like 'more episodes'.  You can then watch any ep from the last 30 days.

 

The ITV app for the Now TV box is very badly designed.

@Magi1974 if you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland you don't get ITV1 as you have either STV or UTV. However the app only knows this based on the postcode you entered. You could always use a different one.

@Steph050824  you have posted on an old Now blog.   ITV content varies according to what part of UK you are in for instance you can't get ITV1 in Scotland.  Some content is also only released by ITV to certain apps across certain devices.  Are there any particular programs you are looking for?
