I was on the Beta, but binned it off (before they pulled it).
It's expired twice over the last 12 months because they forgot about it, so didn't bother sticking a new BETA up. So that counted as 4 device swaps (I have 2 Apple Tvs) in a month when I reverted to the non-Beta App, then the Beta App when they did finally remember.
The time before last, when they stuck the Beta back up after it elapsed, under 'Version' it said: "same as previos'. Note the shoddy spelling mistake. Doesn't inspire much confidence. I mean - how does that even happen? I just had to prevent spell checker from auto-correcting 'previos'.
It hasn't changed, at all, since the very first 'release'.
And now, with no warning, has been pulled in its entirety. It's unlikely it's being worked on at all. The standard line of 'we're working on the Apple TV app constantly' is exactly that - a standard line. It's meaningless spiel.
Look - NowTV is still a pretty good service. I'll pay circa £20 a month for Sports, even in 720p that's reasonable value. And the occasional month here and there for Ents and Movies. But the service overall is far short of what it could be.
So - sod the Beta. Just sort it out and let me know when its worth looking at and taking it seriously.
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.
