Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

try this fix...

 

the error seems to be in the installer which is terrible..

 

my fix was copying the .app from the 1 install i did get to work into other boots (i'd tried 3 different macbooks with 6 different boots/os)

 

download & extract this file 

https://we.tl/3abB7YxUvd  (this is a zipped version of the now tv.app which i had to zip in order to upload to wetransfer_

 

and copy it into user/applications... it may just work... its worked on 3 boots so far for me...

 

good luck! and no thanks to the chat support who i was on with for 3 hrs last night.. i thought of this possible fix at the last minute before i started swearing... let me know if it does work as the tech dept would owe me big time.. i recon a months free subscription for me is worth about ooooo 15 mins of a programmers time..

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

Mate, you're a genius! I reckon NOW TV owe you a year's free subscription. At least. That fix worked immediately, thank you so much. Player seems to be fine too, none of the probs with picture etc that others seem to have had. Problem definitely seems to be with the installer. Thanks again.

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

ha! i spoke to the chat bots and they wanted to know what this simple fix was.. asked them to call but couldn't evidently due to DPA!!! 

 

i'd love some free months of subscription, but i fear it will never happen as i dont think they care...

 

hey ho, if anyone from now tv actually looks at this... i've put this fix up as you don't care.. i'm not in it, just have a logical brain (i think) so if you do want to give me some free time that'd be appreciated 😉 your guys at twitter gave up after i asked for some time..

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

Thankyou very much, Gotitworking, for sharing this app.I had cancelled my Nowtv subscription as I tried everything suggested in the emails by the support person, and instructions like "download an old version of Firefox?  I could have cried. Then I found this forum and was able to follow your instructions, I was thrilled to bits when it worked perfectly , and just looks the same as when I watched it in the Safari browser.       

I just have one question which I apologize if it's silly: the Norton Security thing asked me if I wanted to allow Videomonitorguard to access the internet. It wouldnt work unless I said yes. I hope that is ok, and not harmful?

many thanks

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

This still does not work. With the link that one of the individual has provided (thanks a lot for that by the way) the app installs but when I try to open any programme it comes back with an error message on the app with an error code. 'Oops something has gone wrong!'. Please help!!!!!

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

I get that Oops an Error message sometimes too, Ekdisi.

I close the Nowtv player app. Then I go to Safari , history menu, then Clear History and close it. 

Then I  click  on the Nowtv App , and it works by starting up Safari itself and you just have to sign in again.

i hope that works for you

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

Someone kindly messaged me that the video thing reported by Norton was ok.

All is still working well using the NOWTV PLAYER kindly provided above, but I notice Nowtv still hasnt pointed people who are having a problem installing Nowtv on a mac , to the working version created by one of its customers!

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

I am having these rediculous problems - after having been able to watch NowTv through safari for ages.  I tried to download the installer provided on the wetransfer link, but the transfer has been deleted.  Any other ideas for a fix please?????

 

Thanks in advance!

Roger

Re: Now TV player won't install on Mac

Any more suggestions about problems installing nowtv player? I'm using a Macbook Pro with Yosemite. I've tried downloading on both Safari and Firefox using the link supplied when trying to view something, and also various other links that are on the forum. Sometimes I get as far as downloading and attempted installation which fails to install. Other times it says 'installation successful' and there's a button to click saying 'finish installation' but nothing happens. I've looked in my Applications folder and there's nothing there. Really frustrating.
