Given how much of a pounding Now have taken over lack of Android support I am a little surprised to be an early poster here.


Happy to report the app works as well on my Nexus 7 as it does on my iPhone and my Now box.


A slower delivery than I would have liked Now/Sky but, having played with it all day, if this is the Beta, I can't wait for the 1.0 release :-)

Works well on Nexus 7 and even my old Xperia Play phone.


Well done on getting it out there, even if it did take a while!

Initial version of this worked well on my Nexus 10 and I was delighted but the latest release since 18th March 2014 now crashes around 75% of the time and when it doesn't crash the stream stops and starts a lot.


I know it's not my internet connection as running alongside was my Now TV box which had no streaming issues of the same content at the same time.


Please help!

Hi @fboy, I've had a chat with our development team about your issue and they say the only thing changed with the new app was the look and feel. There shouldn't be any difference in performance.


Can you try going into your app settings and clearing the app cache and data? If that doesn't work, try deleting and reinstalling the app too.


If you need any more assistance, please pop a post in the Android board on the community.

Hi @TonyD2


What happens when you try to view on your new android? Do you get an error message?

yes it says my device has been modified and undo alterations. This is not
the case and I can watch BBC iPlayer without any problems. Thanks Tony

Hi @TonyD2


Thanks for getting back to me, out of interest has this started since the latest update?

It has never worked since installation. Is the problem caused by the fact that it was a purchase from the Internet. Does any thl 2015 phone work with now TV? If not I know I will have to give up! Thanks TonyD

@TonyD2 it's possible the handset has an unlocked bootloader or comes with a rooted version of Android, which would cause these messages to pop up. What's the exact model?
