My take is that HD is very close in the UK (Don’t shoot me if this isn’t the case) and that once HD is released the new App will hit the store, fully modified to take the Boost pack.
Wishful thinking maybe, but it would seem to be slightly sensible,
I was chatting just a few minutes ago with the On-line Live chat and below here are some 'Copy & Paste' from our previous chat, FYI I asked the agent if I can post their replies in our community and he was positive about it. below is my Q&A with the Agent. (answers in blue).
And, Also when is the new updated Now TV App when it is going to be released for Apple TV 4K?
It will be released by next month and every month we have updates for every device.
Are you talking about the NOW TV App for Apple TV 4K?
Yes, We have updates that will be rolling for every device which includes Apple TV as well.
It’s already launched in Ireland. It is out there. Don’t forget, Ireland will have a FAR smaller subscription base than what the U.K. will. It’s a perfect beta testing ground for 6-8 weeks to make sure all bugs are squashed. Now TV can’t afford to have a rubbish app anymore, especially with the launch of Apple TV+ and Disney+ coming on March 31st.
I suspect the app that launched in the beta test was canned in favour of this one. It does look to be much better. I would think there is a roadmap in place for the Apple TV now that is company wide, and it is on the way. This is the first time that customer services have said that an app is coming.
“Now TV can’t afford to have a rubbish app anymore, especially with the launch of Apple TV+ and Disney+ coming on March 31st.”
Agreed, but for me it’s more concerning that Sky Atlantic is home to most (all?) new HBO content. As HBOMax tries to make noise with their US service, I can’t see them happy that their only UK outlet offers such a shoddy format.
@Dean0989 I’m still waiting for a reply to the last email I sent to the Trials Manager 😟
it was sent around the time the last beta version was pulled from TestFlight
They always replied to me promptly before that.
Now totally in the dark. Very poor experience overall.
