Done the waiting. Nothing. Got a box too so I guess thats ok, but if it has a windows app is it too much to ask that it works. I have no issues with netflix working on browser. It just gets to me. Its not the only time either. Ranting sorry.
I seem to get the attached error code
I believe that error is due to the fact that you have windows aero disabled on windows 7. Try turning on windows aero by enabling the transparency checkbox in themes
Well done nick-michael !!!! Neither Now TV on social media or, indeed, their so called 'Tech Experts' on live chat were able to identify such a simple resolution! Still beats me why Aero should be needed, never was prior to 188.8.131.52, but at least I am now able to watch the sports channels again!
I was playing around with this a bit more, and it seems like you don't necessarily need to have transparency enabled, you just need to make sure that you are using one of the 'Aero' themes that support transparency (even if you have it disabled, it seems to still work)
