@pweather1 Seems pretty robust for a beta. Noticed it takes a couple of seconds to stream a clear image. Virgin is my ISP.

@johnhood

 

Just wondering if the Samsung nowtv app UI is similar or identical to the UI on the nowtv box ?

 

Also does the app have the My TV feature and i am guessing you can use all four type of nowtv passes ie Entertainment, Cinema , Kids and Sports on the dedicated app ?

Hi @johnhood

 

I don't have a Samsung TV that can run the app, 

 

However, in my experience the only devices which will give you max quality the very second stream starts are Roku/now TV hardware. From what I've seen, it's normal for quite a few devices to take 10 to 15 seconds to reach maximum quality, so this behaviour would appear to be normal. Both my LG TV and Xbox one Take 10 to 15 seconds to reach maximum quality. So I wouldn't worry, I believe it's just down to the way certain devices handle things.

 

I should mention that once both my Xbox one and LG TV have reached Max quality they both stay there


I do not work for now TV. I am simply a NowTV customer trying to help I am a Community Contributor This means that I know a lot about the service. But just like you I am still a customer. This means I cannot help you with issues that would involve looking into your account directly. A member of the now TV forum team or live chat will need to assist you with these issues.

If you find posts on the community useful or helpful can you give them Thanks By pressing the thumbs up button. If a post solves a problem you are having can you mark it as an accepted solution.

@schnapps Yes, it's the very latest UI and all passes are available to view. I can finally remove my outdated Xbox One app. 🙂

@schnapps - yes, the app on the Samsung TVs will have the same UI as the NOW TV box (including MY TV) and will support all NOW TV products and passes
