Re: Mac player still not working.

 This is what worked after i read the comments on this thread

  1. Download the installer
  2. Locate the file and right click on the "Install NOW TV.app" file and select "Show Package Contents"
  3. Open the "MacOS" subfolder, and you will find "Install NOW TV" as an executable file
  4. Open the file and terminal will start the installation. Let this run till end. When its finished the app usually says ‘installation could not be completed’, ignore this.
  5. Look at the terminal window and scroll down to the bottom
  6. Locate the entry “installer: Error the package path specified was invalid: '/var/folders/63/h7xcc1656032mscgynk21lvc0000gn/T/tmp-NOWTVPlayer-Mac.dmg'.” This was the file name I had but yours may be different
  7. Copy the file address, in this example “/var/folders/63/h7xcc1656032mscgynk21lvc0000gn/T/tmp-NOWTVPlayer-Mac.dmg'.”
  8. Open finder and select go in the top menu, paste the file name
  9. Open the file and drag the installer into your applications folder
  10. Use as normal

Hope this helps!

Re: Mac player still not working.

I've not been able to use NowTV on my Macbook pro for months. Just upgraded to 10.14 Mojave and started from scratch and its worked fine.....massive relief.

Re: Mac player still not working.

Tried all the suggestions here and I can honestly say,.... that it is not working for MacBook pro on OS X

Chrome or Firefox... makes no XXXX difference.

So, I pay every month for a digital streaming service that clearly does not work on my laptop. It used to, but now it does not. Money back?... I doubt.

A simple solution would be appreciated. And there is no way I am going to spend time hacking my own computer to get your silly app to work.

Just fix it and send me the correct download.

I don't think it's to much to ask when you take a monthly fee... from 10,000's of mac users.

Check out amazon prime.... it works fine.
