Black Friday £99 Offer

Hi,

 

I'm trying to sign up for the £99 BF offer for 'existing' customers.

 

I had an offer still running on one of passes - it said I was ineligible.

 

I have now cancelled all of my passes - it still says I am ineligible.

 

My sports pass runs out 28/11, my entertainment and movies passes run out 09/12.

 

So currently the situation is unless I can sign up for the £99 offer my passes will expire and I won't be paying anymore.

 

Any solutions?

 

Simon

If you had an offer that would have continued for longer than 9th Dec (eg something like a £X for X months offer) then that might be the problem, as until the pass finishes on 9th Dec the system may be waiting to see if you restart it.

 

However I'm not sure how NOW TV are treating such offers in regards the Black Friday take-up, so you'd really need NOW TV to look into this to find out exactly what the problem is and if you should be entitled to it.

 

I'd suggest contacting live chat again, or if you'd rather you can try sending them a message instead.

 

You can send the NOW TV Team a message or get to live chat from the Contact Us page

Re: Black Friday £99 Offer

I'm in the same boat as the OP (can't sign up to offer as still have a pass on my account with more than 30 days left to run).

Believe me there is no point contacting customer services as they are utterly useless. All I wanted is to get my pass cancelled clean off so I could take up the offer (I was even willing to lose the remaining months of the pass), but still they won't budge.

 

I've had excuses of "I'm having a technical difficulty". "Computer say's no" etc. Then to add insult to injury, one chap suggested I check at Christmas as there might be some good offers then.... not for me as the bl00dy pass will still be valid then!

 

I know full well they can fully cancel off passes as I've heard it's been done for others. I shall be voting with my feet this time as I've just had enough of the shoddy customer service from NOW TV over the years.

I think the offer is for, new customers only.

We loyal customers get the usual kick in the teeth.

 

The only way I can see around to getting the deal is by creating a new account. Then when your old account is due for renewal, cancel it and switch all your devices over to your new account.

Re: Black Friday £99 Offer

But this is meant to an offer for existing customers. The offer page even has 'existing' in the URL.

 

I suspect Now TV only want people who have happily been paying full price for years to sign up (i.e. "eligible"), and not people who have been on an offer recently (which would include anyone who is on a pass from buying a box or who has been offered a better price when trying to cancel).

 

But of course that makes no sense. People who have been paying full price would likely continue to pay full price without even notcing this offer. Those who are on deals are exactly the people this offer should be targeting!

Live Chat have said there is nothing I can do.

 

Guess I'll just create a new account.

Re: Black Friday £99 Offer

I don't think thats right.

 

I'm not a NowTV customer anymore (still have an account, but no passes). I never got an email, but I can log on and see the offer.

 

My son and his partner are existing customers and can see the offer and I paid for them to get it as a christmas present.

 

My dad has a pass, buit he cannot see any black friday offers at all other than a sports one.

 

Its very odd. Hes going to get in touch with live chat - hoping they can sort him out.
