Re: Now TV in the future

Channel wise the other UKTV channels such as watch, Sky two and universal. If talk talk can offer via internet, no reason Sky can't. Subtitles would be good. I think Sky should drop Sky go and offer now free to their Sky TV customers. If it offered same range of channels they could probably get away with £10 a month. Combined passes would be good as well as ability to pay for a year of passes up front.

@DarylM The only thing I'm not sure about there is a different subscription for SD and HD. I think it will get to the point soon, where HD is regarded as the standard video quality level for content because UHD is starting to appear and will likely be seen as the new premium quality level. So I'm not sure you can call HD a premium thing any more. However I agree with you on all other counts Smiley Happy


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.

@commanda6  You may be right.  Now TV will have to introduce full HD at some point as it comes to be seen as standard.  The question is what that would do to the price point.

 

I think Now TV would be reluctant to have two-tier pricing since it diminishes the simplicity of the product.  But if the price would have to go up to bring in HD, I'd prefer the option of having SD on a basic package for a pound or two cheaper.

 

If HD can be brought in without the price going up then all is well and good.

I think that last one would have to mean TV shows being available in Sky Store to buy.

 

I'd be happy with that.  But I wouldn't want Now TV to go down the Amazon route of having paid-for and subscription content mixed together in the same app.  It's just too confusing.

Re: Now TV in the future

@DarylM Same for me. Personally, I see HD pointless as I go for how good the shows/movies are, not the quality of them.

 

Yeah, I see what you mean with the amazon part. Smiley Indifferent

But when you realise you are only halfway through a series and it expires soon, I'd pay to see the rest. 

For me, I am halfway through switched at birth and there is no way I can see all the rest in time. Smiley Sad

Re: Now TV in the future

@caseyb1993  My TV's too small to tell the difference between SD and HD. 

 

If I had a bigger TV I'd probably pay a bit extra for HD.  But SD is fine for my current purposes and I'm happy to save a pound or two when I do subscribe to Netflix.
