Now TV app on Sony/Android tvs

I was just in John Lewis looking for a new smart TV and was originally looking for either a Samsung or LG TV as they have the now TV app. However the salesman was telling me I should go for a Sony TV as that is getting the now TV app in September. I can't see any info a out this so I am wondering if he was just telling me this to sell a TV. Has anyone heard this too or can someone from now TV confirm if it is true or not?

Three things:-

 

1. A NowTV Stick is under £20. You should not let the presence or absence of the app sway your decision here.

 

2. Ask the salesman if he will put that in writing, with agreement that you can return the set for a full refund on 1st October if the app is not present by then.

 

3. Read the Sony Android forum for a bit. Then if you choose Sony, you will at least be going into it with open eyes.

Thanks for the tips. I will have a look through that forum but I have a feeling from the Google searches I have done that the salesman was just telling me that to sell a more expensive TV.

A few months ago, there was an invitation to sign up for a beta trial of a NOW TV app on the Sony Android tv. As a Sony XE90 owner, I signed up for this but never heard anything further about it. So your source could be correct (although a September timescale for release may be optimistic, based on my past experience of beta testing apps & software for Sky & NOW TV taking quite a long time to make final release).

Thanks, that does sound like they are working on something then.

lets hope so - another Sony Android TV user here frustrated that only service I can't use native on the TV is Now TV
