These newer nowtv 4k boxes don't even have bluetooth built in I mean that should be standard if your watching a movie late at night with headphones you cant. The same with the roku streaming stick+. With apple you do as with firetv stick 4k and nvidia shield. It's either done on purpose to cut costs or they just couldnt but yet they can make it 4k.
sure, but when I purchased the NowTV box I want expecting miracles.
it was only a stop gap and I needed something compatible with Boost.
The reason I spent double (£29) what the stick is (£15) is that the sticks are physically awkward devices and I didnt have the room either side of the HDMI port to accommodate its bulk.
However, my expectations were suitably low. Dont get me wrong its amazing value for money but you get what you pay for. Its hardly the most snappy or fluid interface.
Its not going to waste for me, as I will move the NowTV box to the bedroom TV once the AppleTV app sorts itself out.
Fingers crossed its soon. But all indications don't point favourably to NowTV giving it much TLC or a high priority from their dev team. If they did, it wouldn't be 4 years old without an update (inexcusable!), and also ALL apps on ALL platforms would have received the appropriate updates simultaneously to support the new Boost service.
Just to point out, but the Ireland app that is shown on the link posted here a while back shows a red button menu system. Which means that it isn't even taken from the Ireland app at all, just a generic smart TV app similar to LG's being shown. For the whole of the Beta trial the layout of the apple tv app was COMPLETELY different to that supposed Ireland app shown on the store.
@Anonymous User My understanding is that you would need an account on the IE Apple App Store to download the IE version of the app, and that even if that's done it will only accept login details for an IE NOW TV account (won't accept login details for a UK NOW TV account).
But I'm prepared to be told that I'm wrong about that by someone who has actually managed to download it from the IE Apple App Store, and then login with UK NOW TV account details..
