Re: Why no Linux Support?

This is the last month I'll run my sub probably. Just no point. Forced ads no matter where you watch from (I do pay for this service, why shove more ads in my face?), low quality (where exactly is > 1080p streams?) and the fact I can't watch anything on my linux computers (which is all of them...) just is the cherry on top. Amazon prime video works fine in a browser on linux. Netflix works fine in a browser on linux. NowTV is trying to force me to use their incredibly buggy and silly app, which isn't supported on linux. Amazon prime video has high quality streams. Netflix has high quality streams. NowTV... well, doesn't. I could understand the attitude of not bothering to acknowledge other operating systems if NowTV had the best quality or the best selection, but it has neither. Inferior product that forces ads and doesn't work on my pc... cancelling my sub.

Re: Why no Linux Support?

I have just paid for entertainment package and movies to discover you don't support Linux.

all my PCs and laptops run Linux.

yes I could install windows via shell extensions or something similar, but just to watch TV. really!

I have to say I'm very surprised at this lack of support.

printer manufacturers and other computer packages are getting support now so why do you ignore this large source of revenue.

I will be asking for my money back.

Re: Why no Linux Support?

I too have just discovered that there is no Linux support which I find a bit surprising these days.  I had expected to view Now TV on my computers and the inability to do this is a deal breaker for me I'm afraid.

 

I don't use Windows or Apple computers so it looks like my use of Now TV will be limited to the one month pass I purchased.
