And if this is the best answer, there is no hope. Actual answer should be "jump ship".

Re: NowTV on Linux

this pipelight solution is 6 years out of date now, and certainly doesn't install on Linux Mint, fyi

Re: NowTV on Linux

Why are you so balls-out to run NowTV on a ###### little laptop when for a net £5 (considering the included two month’s Entertainment Pass) you could be watching it on a NowTV Stick plugged into your huge TV screen?

There's also no reason why a NowTV stick wouldn't work with a HDMI monitor. If you have one


I do not work for now TV. I am simply a NowTV 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.

If you find posts on the community useful or helpful can you give them Thanks By pressing the thumbs up button. If a post solves a problem you are having can you mark it as an accepted solution.

Re: NowTV on Linux

Ok. Problem solved: bye bye NOW.

I skip to Netflix, Prime Video, etc...

All these streaming platforms work with Linux.

Re: NowTV on Linux

You wouldn't think most of those skyboxes run on Linux the way those people are saying you need SilverLight for the encryption. Netflix has no issues, Neither the BBC or Hulu. But we know why Sky can't pull their thinger out of their ###### and use Generic encryption standard because on HTML5 apps you can't data mine as much as you can using MS SilverLight. million of steaming services don't need windows and are safe from hacking. Not like hacking SilverLight is that hard anyway, you just use a screen capture built into most GPU's apps. And then they wonder why people ripe the movies. Sit to Netflix you can watch that while working without being an MS ######! Good job the trail is free or I would consider suing for money back as it is advertised as a web streaming service which it's not because it is locked via an app and certain OS's applications. With HTML5 being so flexible the need to use an MS app to run is a sign they are weak.
