Re: NOW TV Installation could not be completed. Please try again...

I'm a bit dumb and found this thread as I'm having the issue and am in the terminal and did some research and tried this:

myname$ sudo installer -store -app "/Users/myname/downloads/nowtv.app" - target/

Entered my password and got this:

installer: invalid option -app
Usage: installer [-help] [-dominfo] [-volinfo] [-pkginfo] [-allowUntrusted] [-dumplog]
                 [-verbose | -verboseR] [-vers] [-config] [-plist]
                 [-file <pathToFile>] [-lang <ISOLanguageCode>] [-listiso]
                 [-showChoicesXML] [-applyChoiceChangesXML <pathToFile>]
                 [-showChoicesAfterApplyingChangesXML <pathtoFile>]
                 -pkg <pathToPackage>
                 -target <[DomainKey|MountPoint]>

What should I be putting in there pretty please?

Hi all,

Sounds like I'm having a similar issue - not too technical, I've got the terminal open but what command do I need to type in to run the install?

Thanks in advance!

Uninstalled Now TV but couldn't find as it wasn't working but then the instructions how to reinstall it went. No gelp anywhere not even on the site.   Tried contact with chat but they took forever. First time I used it, missed my match. If I can't resolve it will use NETFKIX.  Help

No luck on my end....

I had to change chmod on the hidden .dmg to be able to mount and install the player. Even then, the app still opened with an error VGC-4253024414:4240441601

If this is truly a recommended fix, I don't know how on Earth this is expected to be performed by the majority Mac users who have no familiarity with the terminal. Mac stability and support has been appalling from day one. How this circus can persist is utterly beyond me...

Trooper 91, the easiest method:

1) Right click on the installer (in your downloads folder)

2) Choose 'Show Package Contents'

3) Navigate to the installer file in 'Contents' -> 'Mac OS'

4) Drag and drop that into Terminal and hit enter.

Re: NOW TV Installation could not be completed. Please try again...

hi, im glad you managed to get the player to install. however im very sorry that is not an error i am aware of. i will have a little look and see if i can find anything for you later but i wouldnt hold your breath. i really hope you find a solution soon. (always worth checking that any antivirus or malware software isnt blocking the app)

Hi Hyt,

Im sorry you didnt find my fix very easy to complete and that you then found a completley different error when loading. 

Next time i promise i will try and spend even more of my free time solving these issues and then sharing them with fellow users.

I really do look forward to seeing your updated much easier solution soon.

Yours tolerantly
