Re: Can I watch NOW TV on a Smart TV

hi @Anonymous User  yes you can watch on a smart LG TV.  You just need a free device slot.  The app is often preloaded if you press the smart button on your remote.  If it is not there go into the app store for your TV and you should be able to add it.  You then just log in with your user name and password and start watching.  You will have same access as on all other devices.  The LG TV will show as LG TV in your devices.

Hi @Anonymous User

Yes, you can as you can have up to 4 devices registered to 1 now TV account. A device becomes registered when you watch now TV content on it for the first time

 

The now TV app should be available on select 2012 LG TV models and all LG TVs from 2013 onwards

 

The aware that once you have added your first for devices to your account. A device limit of one device change per calendar month comes into effect


I do not work for Now . I am simply a Now customer trying to help I am a Community Contributor This means that I know a lot about the service. But just like you I am still a customer. This means I cannot help you with issues that would involve looking into your account directly. A member of the now TV forum team or live chat will need to assist you with these issues.

Re: Can I watch NOW TV on a Smart TV

I applied for a day pass yesterday as a newcomer first timer to now tv. I didn't realise I could have had a 14 day free trial. Is this the case and shouldn't I have been informed as a new customer?

Also I have my iPhone and iPad with my new app for now to. How do I get my tv to have now tv? Can I add it after I have added my phone and iPad in the same month on a different day?

Re: Can I watch NOW TV on a Smart TV

hi @Anonymous User the sports pass for a day is a stand alone pass.  You can apply day passes whenever you fancy watching sport.  The 14 days passes are for entertainment and movies.  You have to cancel before the 14 days are up or you get charged every month- of course if you like the content and wish to continue let the subscription continue.   What model of LG do you have?  Do you know how to access the apps or LG smart world to add apps?

Re: Can I watch NOW TV on a Smart TV

As rated by Samsung, the most polular app for my SmartTV is Neflix, followed ny BBC iPlayer, followed by Amazon Instant Video.

It's not huge inconivience to use a second remote for Now TV. It is not a huge incovience having to change to HDMI2. And yet I find myself just watching Netflix most of the time so I don't have to juggle with the two remotes. I've used Now TV very little over the last few months largely due to to this. Usually only on Fridays if there is a new good movie on and Netflix the rest of the week. I'm almost considering to cencel it.

I hope Now TV wakes up to what cumstomers want and make SmartTV apps. It's not enough to offer a box that does the job. People want convinience.

Shame shops do not tell you this when you buy your smart TV. We gave away our now TV box when we bought our LG smart TV as we were told we would not need it. Only found out when we tried to download ALL4  app.  Bummer

I TOTALLY understand inconvenience thing. 

I tried to get a Now TV movie pass for my parents in their mid 70's. They have so much difficulty with utilizing a secondary input on the TV.

 

And that is as a result of attempting to circumvent the NOT-up-to-date NowTV app on their Humax YouView box which I purchased for them to try to make everything simple so that they could watch Freeview, Netflix, and/or NowTV, and show recordings. The Now TV on the YouView is too difficult for them to navigate compared ro the Netflix app (subtle, but important differences)  and the YouView NowTV app does not even include a working 'My List' so that I can line up movies for them to watch. It's a disaster. Add to that the fact that Netflix gives you 'sub accounts' so that different members of a household (up to 5)  can have their own preferred programs and saved Shows/films. 

 

I really want to be to be able to use NowTV, but it is let down by apps not being available on some TVs and apps not being updated to use the features that should be there. Sometimes interfaces should have settings to make life easier for the elderly -but that's a whole other can of worms.

 

adding further insult to injury, I'm finding a 4 device limitation for 2 simultaneous streams to be woefully insuffiicient and is making life in a VERY small family household a complete nightmare to administer. Just having a mobile device and a Chromecast takes 2 device slots. I can't even take my iPad and view a movie on a firiend's tv via a Chromecast, because it's considered an additional device. It's madness. No such issues with Netflix.

 

As as you can tell, I'm kind of not happy being treated like I can't be trusted. Netflix does not have a device limit. -and if it does have one, I have certainly never butted heads with it and I have at least 8 devices I have to juggle around.

Welcome to the forum.

 

You'll find a full list of supported devices you can use here

Casting to a Chromecast from iOS/Android is supported, but proprietary casting/screen mirroring probably won't work.
