Are we forced to use the terrible now tv player now on Mac?

I'm not using that player as the mouse pointer won't go away.

This is on the list of features to come! I know it's not ideal, but in the meantime, you can tuck it in the corner while you're watching.

Can we no longer watch NowTV through Firefox Browser with Silverlight?  I'm now being redirected to downloading the NowTV player, which is useless.  The sound quality using the player on my Mac is absolutely horrendous.

Count yourself lucky you can watch anything at all, I just get endless p2001 error and a spinning icon.  At least with firefox there was an option, now that's gone Smiley Sad

Firefox sadly no longer supports Silverlight, which is why it's no longer an option.

 

We're definitely aware of the issue and we do have a fix coming very soon to resolve this.

The sound on the new player doesn't work using HDMI - is there a fix for this?

Erm whenabouts are you fixing the Now TV Player's extreme jumpiness? Or will you be providing an option to stream online instead anytime soon? Video just freezes all the time. (On a Windows machine, not a Mac). I'm on a 14 day trial, certainly won't be renewing into a paid subscription if this continues.
