As we all know 1080p for example is coming to NowTV and most likely Sky Sports Red Button I expect seeing as the app wasn't released. They have decided to get rid of the previous beta build and start a new app that will give them a better base they can easier update as they add features to NowTV.
Well mine expired, loads but crashes on every video play on tvOS 13
I’m surprised to hear they might be binning this app entirely before it even made it public
I’ll happily continue testing. Although I do think someone with the revenue and resources Sky have, this should be bought to market a little quicker than this.
I've cancelled today my one-year Cinema and Entertainment passes for good, not coming back at all as long this horrible & outdated App still on Apple TV. I think even if it update by this evening I still won't come back. Bye-bye everyone.
Why don’t you just buy a Stick, especially with these Black Friday offers that are now on?
Thank you Roy,
Because I have all the rest of Tv/Media streaming Apps in Apple TV 4K and I don't want to move between different boxes/sticks. this is why I bought APTV because it is going to my ultimate TV Box.
We all have been let down by SKY, I won't come back again and soon .. Am I going to come back for Now TV on APTV, well I don't know but I don't think so.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE customer service by SKY.
I think it is sky strategy to get last xmas with its own box
in march disney+ will launch on Apple TV and I think by that date the app will be updated like the irish on
By the way anyone from Ireland can post a review on the app?
As I stated the other day I was told it was late January app was gonna be released on other devices, I can’t see march and personally if that was the case I just think it’s madness. They need to get this out there now. Disney+ will have a huge selection to choose from so if sky want people getting movie passes it beggars belief why they haven’t sorted this. You could argue that by releasing it in Ireland and a smaller country they will get the feedback for the uk release. But still management of sky or now tv need to admit massive errors here for producing an app that has been left to gather dust for other devices.
I think @Anonymous User hit the nail on the head... maybe they want people around black friday, and Christmas buying their own hardware.
I dont see how this can make a great deal of sense though, as their hardware is so much cheaper than others - especially when bundled with a free pass or two.
The stick was £14.99 recently. They cannot make a penny from selling that surely.
So, why not concentrate more on what's important and get CUSTOMERS... and thats on ANY platform they can, not just forcing them to buy a cheaper lower quality piece of hardware.
As Ive said before, my Apple TV is my box of choice. The Apple TV app is worth it alone - it automatically presents any new episodes of shows you are watching across BBC, ITV, CH4, CH5, and Amazon Prime - so handy. Netflix have chosen to not involve themselves in the TV app, but I wish they would as it would make life so much easier. Now.... if NOWTV would get their act together and finally achieve functional parity across ALL their supported platform, and play nice with AppleTV's TV app... that would be a real game changer.

I've just downloaded the Beta version of the new Beta App, it would be amazing if Now TV (and also channel 4) joined the Apple TV App ... it would make this box the box to go to.
How did you get the beta version of the app?
