In anticipation of watching Snyder’s Justice League next week, I’m getting lined up with Cinema Pass+Boost.
Historically I’ve subscribed & watched at will to the Entertainment Pass via Apple TV 4K, so 720p and 2 channel stereo. Whilst Apple TV 4K supports the HD part of boost, it still doesn’t support 5.1 sound.
So I’m looking at playing NowTV back via Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. Question is, does this definitely support BOTH 1080p HD AND 5.1?
Wanting to be sure before spending the money ahead of the premiere next Thursday.
I can confirm absolutely the Amazon Firestick supports the entire NowTV platform from 5.1 to Bonus Streams.
If you want to be really naughty..... buy a firestick 4K from Amazon... Take out the free 7 day trial of the boost pass.... watch the movie before the 7 days is up, cancel the pass, then send back the Firestick. All free.
Sadly NowTV (with the "assistance" of content sharing deals) has suddenly made the Firestick its number one option - and therefore its the best of the lot when it comes to support.
So much for AppleTV.
Surely can't be worse than the pile of s*** we had with the original?
Considering Josh Wheddon was the one who ended up making Justice League because of Synders family issues whatever they were.
Whereas as Synder did very good jobs with Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman (extended cut), I personally am looking forward to the new version.
@gavs82008 snyder is a terrible director and b v s is so so bad. The whole franchise is awful and I'm a massive Batman fan.
However I do know for some bizzare reason lots are looking forward to it so it's good it's coming to Now TV straight away rather than putting it behind an extra pay wall
"it's good it's coming to Now TV straight away rather than putting it behind an extra pay wall"
Indeed, can only imagine there were a few understandable complaints with Wonder Woman 1984. A film I would never spend £20 on unless in the cinema, have yet to see it though.
You've not seen Wonder Woman 1984, I have and I would say "Don't Bother" coz' it's a couple hours of your life you'll never get back.
Patty Jenkins, the director of the first Wonder Woman film, took on multiple roles in WW84 and, I think, developed a god complex and so believing she "could do no wrong" promptly delivered an illogical, morally dubious, dog's breakfast of a film.
Now Gavs, you know I'm a fan of all things "Superhero" and for me to criticise any superhero film or show, even really bad ones, indicates that something is terribly wrong.
Yeah, WW84 is indeed a masterclass in how not to make a superhero film.
That's your opinion and your very welcome to share it.
I too am a big Batman fan. But in my opinion, its miles better than Superman Returns and Batman & Robin, those films were just god awful.
Either way, like I said in my view I am looking forward to the new film. I personally have enjoyed the fanchise, the 2017 version of Justice League was just pathetic and rushed in my eyes.
To be perfectly honest, I couldn't care less who directs it, just as long as I enjoy the film and don't feel ripped off, which is was happened with Justice League 2017.
@gavs82008 oh I agree those films were just as bad. Maybe we were just popped by Christopher Nolans series which for me were the perfect Batman films. I'm also really excited to see the new Batman film with Robert Pattinson, that looks right up my street from what we have seen so far
Definetely agree with you there, the Nolan films are still my favorite. Don't see anything beating that!
The Patterson film looks like it could be interesting, I think he will be a great Bruce Wayne. If its a mash up of the Keaton and Bale films then I will be happy!
Just to confirm what @Enapace and @nst have already said. This link will tell you all you need to know.
But yes I own a Fire Stick and all "Boost" features are supported.
You’ll need any of these devices to enjoy all the features of NOW TV Boost:
