Re: Now TV launches on Amazon Fire Stick

I installed the NOW TV app on my 4K Firestick and while most content is in Full HD using the boost, Sky News is 720p and some VoD content is also 720p.  Family Guy is for example.

 

You can also find out the resolution of NOW TV content on the Firestick by enabling developer options.

 

 

Networking Spec - ISP: TalkTalk VDSL2 @ 76mbps | NOW TV Smart Box 4K wired connected, Chromecast 3rd Gen wired, Samsung Galaxy A50 (Android Pie), Fire Tablet (2018 edition), Dell PC with Windows 10 Home Edition using the Now TV Win 8.1/10 App.

I also made this mistake. Ignore the QR code, and click the the cross/close button, can’t quite remember where it is, definitely in one of the corners.

 

That will bring you to the NowTV homepage, then simply select something to watch, which will then prompt you to log in.

Re: Now TV launches on Amazon Fire Stick

Downloaded the NowTV App onto my 2018 Firestick HD last night but cannot get it to output 5.1 audio (I do have the "Boost" Pass for 1080P/5.1). Presumably this is because I can't access the app's Settings menu as the Firestick remote has no red button!

I’ve seen that but I cannot seem to get to any settings options in the App.

Re: Now TV launches on Amazon Fire Stick

Hi @Mr_Wolf 

 

I don't own a Fire Stick, but when you open the NowTV App, scroll down towards the bottom of the Home Screen NowTV Page and there is a My Account tile box to click on.

 

When the My Account page opens on your television screen, there should be an option under Boost Pass to select surround sound.

 

Did you get that far ?

The Amazon 4K fire stick is a device I own, haven’t downloaded Now TV onto it yet. Will give it a test tomorrow and let you know.

Re: Now TV launches on Amazon Fire Stick

I got that far but the option simply isn’t there.  In fact my Boost pass isn’t even listed on the My Account page.   What you’re describing is the page I see on the NowTV app on my iPad.  I’m starting to think my particular model of Firestick (2018 HD - not 4K) doesn’t support the Boost features. My Boost pass is valid and has been working fine on my other devices which are all NowTV branded.
