Black Friday 2020 Prediction

Here is my prediction for NOW TV’s Black Friday offerings - NOTHING

 

Comcast’s interest in NOW TV was nothing more than their need to asset strip it for their Peacock product.

 

Offering discounts is in direct conflict with the need to make it unpalatable compared to Sky. Once all the vouchers have timed out it will be overpriced except only for those who wish to dip in and out.

As I just picked up a new 50% off offer on Ents channels, I think your prediction may already be wrong.

Two offers already...

 


6 months of Entertainment for £4.99 a month: Offer available to this NOW TV My Account holder only.

 

6 months of Sky Cinema for £5.99 a month: Offer available to this NOW TV My Account holder only.

Offer available to this NOW TV My Account holder only.

 

those aren't Black Friday offers, they're unique to you and your account.

 

There are Black Friday deals with most major retailers on NowTV Sticks - £19.99 with a months cinema, months movies and a days sport.

It is my understanding that any deals for Black Friday will be based on a customer basis. 

To see what deals are available to you, is under your passes and the red banner “offers”

Hopefully we start seeing some deals for Black Friday for everyone. My Sports pass offer ended this month so I’m hoping for something with the sports, as I’m on an offer for movies and entertainment until May.

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

£66 for 6 months of entertainment and movies is half price! What more do people want?

 

Given there are now more channels available and more on demand content, I'd bite their hand of for that offer!

You ask what more do people want?

It was 12mths for £99, how about 12mths for £109...

@Anonymous User as I've already pointed out in the thread, you offer you've received is unique to you and shouldn't be confused with previous Black Friday offers.

 

On Facebook and Twitter people are asking about the £99 offer and CS agents are simply telling people to check the website on Friday for any offers. So, that offer may be repeated.

 

Secondly, the offer you've personally received has been sent with you having to do nothing! This is what I see (and have done for 5 years)

If I want to save money, I have the hassle of having to constantly monitor my passes and I have to go on live chat and ask for discounts. Sometimes I get them, sometimes I don't. I never get retention deals, never get email offers and never get members offers.

 

You have done nothing and been offered half price! If that's not good enough for you, take a screen shot, message it to me and I'll have it because it will save me a lot of hassle over the next 6 months!

@Saint1976 Have you cancelled passes? Have you unticked the marketing box?  

 

I get a couple of email offers most months.  Still on the free cinema pass (email) and boost £6 for 3 months (account offer) along with the £3.49/month entertainment (chat).  Never paid full price.

@SweetBlitz yes I cancel passes and I'm subscribed to emails. I've been over this several times.

 

I'm not discussing what I pay but I do fine out of contacting live chat and asking. I just believe that I shouldn't have to do that when others are given offers willy nilly by email or through the members offers.

In 6 years I have recieved 1 offer by email. That was for 3 months Sky sports for £25 a month. Rather ironic as I had already signed up to the 9 months for £20 a month deal a month before.

Never had a retention offer either.

They maybe more on demand content, sadly 95% of it is reality crap that isn't worth the HD space it takes up on a server. Content next year for both entertainment and movies is going to be damn limited. will have to go from A New Premiere Everyday" to "A New Premiere Every Month".

I suspect that there will be a lack of new content, but also with a fair amount of content having migrated to Disney+ I guess Sky will need to get more creative.

 

Personally I would be happy if there were more classic movies and the HBO series had longer runs, but suspect I am in the minority.  And probably one of the few not too unhappy with the loss of Marvel, Start Wars and the animated Disney/Pixar movies.

Cancelled both movies and entertainment as no offers and no vouchers in supermarkets etc. Was looking for a BF deal but if there isn't any will just stick with Netflix and Amazon as better value.

That's hogwash.

Offers are not based on your account.

People really need to stop saying the codswallop.
