Re: AppleTV App Beta

I have to say it's a really bad show and very frustrating. They sent two e-mail to me saying in next few weeks, end of month etc, then nothing. I mean an update would be nice, or saying it's cancelled, if it in fact is, at least we would know!

To just abandon people who signed up for the beta (so are obviously excited about it) is just at best inconsiderate, and at worst lazy & disrespectful


@Flashf1 So it looks like @RobotKhan (despite never providing any evidence to support the claim, as requested) was right all along...

Re: AppleTV App Beta

I got an invite to the beta today finally and so far looks good.

Re: AppleTV App Beta

Likewise.  Up and running with the beta on ATV 4th gen via TestFlight.

Not sure how much can be discussed on here given the T&Cs when signing up for the beta itself earlier this year.

Re: AppleTV App Beta

Just the fact that the beta exists is a wonderful news. Hopefully they will launch in Italy soon. Can’t stand Chromecast anymore

Re: AppleTV App Beta

Please any beta testers actually test the app and report bugs, in my experience many sign up to beta test to get a new feature and don’t report bugs, however minor. 

I recently beta tested a web app at work and found 180 issues myself, many cosmetic that others would have ignored. In the end a great looking streamlined app was the result that many benefit from. 

I currently only occasionally have a Now TV pass as I wasn’t getting value as it’s too hard to find something to watch or follow on where you got to in the current non beta Apple TV app. 

If anyone knows a way for me to get on the beta please let me know, think I missed an open invite in this forum a while ago. 

Anyway great news this beta app exists, hope it integrates with the TV app and Siri search.

Anything specific you want me to test? I’ll test it thoroughly anyway but just in case there are bups you’ve found with the current one I’ll check if they’re patched. I can’t post the results on here but at least you’ll know they were tested.

Re: AppleTV App Beta

Hi @ChiefSpaceGobln  @mancsmark1 @MrZippy @KS4 and all other people on the trial.

You are not permitted to talk or discuss anything about the trial or the content of the ATV NowTV App under the NDA, otherwise you will get into hot water with NowTV & Sky.

Your only communication should be between the NowTV Trials Team on the information given when you accepted the trials invitation.

Re: AppleTV App Beta

I’m not on the trial so not covered by any NDA. I am just imploring the beta testers to fully test and report all issues, cosmetic or functionality. I agree if there is a NDA then the testers should not discuss here, normally you’d expect them to have a private forum to discuss between themselves.

Re: AppleTV App Beta

Hi @MrZippy

The testers will be under NDA, where there is no private area on the forum to discuss any bugs or glitches where they need to contact the NowTV Trials Team directly on their observations and findings when using the App.
