Casting a NowTV stream from an iOS device to a YouView's Now TV APP

 

 

Hi,

 

i have Now TV apps on my iPad and on my Humax YouView box. 

With Netflix, I can transfer a stream from the iPad to the YouView box by going to the Cast icon and selecting youview, which then opens up the YouView's Netflix app.

 

could could casting to YouView boxes please be supported on on your apps?

 

cheers!

Hi T

 

First, I'm nothing to do with Now TV other than being a customer.

 

Second, since Now TV has nothing to do with Netflix, it is therefore unlikely to accept any technical connection, whether possible or not, simply because such a connection would not be supported by either company.

 

Finally, there are copyright and inter-company cooperation issues would have to be sorted out first, which is again highly unlikely to happen.

Hi UKbobby, 

 

i think you you missed what I was asking for.

 

i was just asking if NowTV could make their NowTV app on mobile devices recognize the YouView box, just as their NowTV mobile app recognizes Chromecast.

 

Netflix do this with their mobile app.. it would be good if the mobile NowTV app would also be able to transfer its stream to a YouView box in the same way Netflix and NowTV do so with Chromecast.

Hi T

 

Yes, it seems I have completely misunderstood what your were asking for, which was an extra facility, i.e. casting from a Now TV app, via a mobile, to a YouView box.

 

Sorry about that, I originally thought that you wanted some sort of communication/interface between Netflix and Now TV.

 

Well, on reflection, what you are asking for is feasible and, I guess, is down to how many other Now TV app users are requesting such a facility to make it worth Now TV's while to put up the development and support costs.

 

Good Luck with your request.

@Anonymous User  no you cannot cast to YouView.  Please also note only movies are available on YouView.  You can only cast to Chromecast.
