Hi @spectrum128k 

 

Perhaps have a look at the TV Player App which is available on the full blown Roku Players, Fire TV, Google Chromecast etc but not available via the NowTV branded devices.

 

They cover some of the Freeview Channels via streaming on the internet, but all the decent channels are on their premium service.

 

More info here about the TV Player service.

tv player is ok i found i used now transponder tv or tv mucho,

thou i prefer the streaming of nowtv which are very reliable.

transponder is quite cheap too 6.50p a month which is good value.

Hi @spectrum128k 

 

Just throwing NowTV Player out there has an option, but it looks like you have already tried it.

 

I am lucky, where i get excellent Freeview Coverage in my area from both my Rooftop aerial and portable aerial in the spare bedroom 😀.

Hi @spectrum128k 

 

 

There is a time delay between a live stream over the internet compared to over the air Freeview or a live Satellite broadcast, where i would say it is a minute or so loading onto the servers, through the exchanges and then down the miles of pipe until it reaches us in the end (never timed it though).

 

Its not only NowTV that is effected with their live sports streams for example, where i also noticed the difference between BBC iPlayer during the World Cup and Amazon Prime with the Eastbourne Tennis which was also on Freeview, where there was a noticeable delay of around a minute compared to the live BBC over the air Freeview showing.

 

I doubt very much that a live internet feed, will arrive exactly the same time has a live Freeview or Satellite broadcast where there are more obstacles to over come (though i am no telecommunication engineer).

Do people actually pay to get access to FREE channels? Wow!!!

 

NowTV can't just add Freesat or Freeview passes. These channels are free so Sky can't charge for them.

 

As for new channels, who knows, but personally I'd doubt NowTV will get any more channels than what it currently holds. For more channels, such as Animal Planet & Lifetime, you'll require satellite reception and a sub to Sky TV.
