Now tv app not working on Apple TV 2nd Gen

Hopefully someone can help here.

 

Now tv app on Apple TV 2nd generation - not signing in!  

Comes up as:- Login failed, unable to login at this time.

 

Yes it’s definitely the right login details and NOT my Apple login I’m using.  

I can log in on other devices and tv, just not working on Apple TV.  I definitely have a slot available for another device, and I haven’t made more changes than I’m aloud within the calander month (6 devices allowed, 3 changes allowed).

 

I was waiting on tech team getting back to me, but with the lockdown, seems unlikely and I can’t call them back as they are only dealing with urgent calls right now.

 

anybody?? Please??

Re: Now tv app not working on Apple TV 2nd Gen

So, after scouring the Nowtv website, I can see that only Appletv 3rd generation onward is supported - why tech team didn’t know this and tell me when I first phoned beats me.  So Nowtv app on Appletv 2nd generation is now no use.

 

In addition, for anyone else’s information, I purchased an apple hdmi adapter for my iphone/ipad to connect via tv and use the nowtv app through those devices - no joy. Again, after some digging, discovered that Nowtv removed this capability a while ago.  So only option now is to buy a brand new compatible device if I want to view on this particular tv.  Such a p**s take.

Thanks @Duncaw67 , but as it’s a 2nd gen Apple tv, you can’t delete or install apps.  There is no app store function on it.

Re: Now tv app not working on Apple TV 2nd Gen

sorry I don't need an answer from Now.tv as I have an apple tv 4nd Generation ever since it came out I  just wondering what your response be in knowledge so things can be understood, How Ever I won't go into details,  but to come down hard on now.tv to ask why isn't Eurosport support as this is a common mistake been made, as Eurosport first launched on European satellite on 5 February 1989 .as for now.tv,   did noting to support it, This is definitely A Common fault in behalf of Now.tv
