Re: New Apple TV 4k - "Sorry, Now TV is currently unavailable"

Same problem for me, ironic as I only upgraded my old Apple TV box as Now was not going to work on it. I have also submitted a complaint online to Now about it, on the plus side it may finally encourage me to ditch Now altogether.

This is the latest tweet reply from NOW over on Twitter (see screen shot below).

dont hold your breath.

 

Ridiculous and embarrassing MISTAKE they have made.

 

Today, the new 4K boxes arrive and the app they provide needs a tweak.  This should have been done before today... whatever was needed.

 

How long till this is fixed?

 

My replacement 4K box will stay in the box till I know this works.

 

Sadly... these responses from Twitter are always unreliable.

DO we have an ETA on when this will be fixed, so I that I can decide whether or not to cancel my subscriptions until the app is working?  Its not worth subscribing to all the packages if I cannot use the NowTV App on my new Apple TV 4K to watch them!

Re: New Apple TV 4k - "Sorry, Now TV is currently unavailable"

I have the same issue. Bought a brand new 4K Apple TV box yesterday predominantly because my 2nd gen app was about to become obsolete !

 

If this issue persists past the 27th I will not be happy...

Re: New Apple TV 4k - "Sorry, Now TV is currently unavailable"

I share everyone’s irritation with this.

 

Another issue with the AppleTV platform - rubbish half baked app that was never updated to include the bare minimum of 5.1 and now this.

 

This, on the face of it, seems totally ridiculous and unacceptable and also should surely be easy to fix.

 

The app, for its faults, should work just the same on the new hardware.  There’s no way that TVOS would require a new version of an existing app to be made to run on the new 4K box - this is a fact of course as all the other apps work fine.  Therefore its something server-side at NOW’s end - something as simple as recognising a new model of hardware… and surely this is just a tweak on a bit of code on a server.

 

GET ON WITH IT NOWTV…… DO THIS FIX. N*O*W!!!!!!  Many, like myself, now have a new AppleTV as they were available from YESTERDAY and we of course expect the same app to work on it that worked on the old 4K box.  This is not an unreasonable expectation!!!!!

 

At least, the more complaints they have the more they realise that there are indeed AppleTV customers out there who pay for Now’s service and expect it to work.
