NowTV - No longer working; LG App Store Version

LG Support Case: GCU200215026372

 

Feel free to refer reference the above when raising a support ticket with LG.

---

Can NowTV please advise when the LG App Store version will be updated to fix "Sorry, there is an error"? App works fine but when you attempt to actually play content it fails.

 

My suspicion given others in the community are having the same issue, NowTV have changed something and forgot to amend the various App stores.


We have tried (several times on each)
 - Re-install the App

 - Restart TV via power button and power itself

 - Tried various times of the day

 - Restart Virgin Hub 3 multiple times.

 

Thank you,

Re: NowTV - No longer working; LG App Store Version

I have to say, that although this doesnt help your particular issue, my feeling is that NowTV have spread themselves too thinly and were trying to create as many apps on as many platforms as they could.

 

This is all very well, as it looks wonderful on their website with the long list of devices they support..

 

But inevitably this leads to significant problems.

 

AppleTV is a big one.... the app remains 4 years old and barely functions let alone actually having the same features as on other platforms.

 

I am not at all surprised to hear of other problems on other platforms.

 

When, for example, they released the Boost function, they should have updated ALL the apps on ALL their "supported" devices to support it - however they didnt we are now in a terrible situation of functional disparity and some of us, through no fault of our own, are NowTV "second class citizens" who are paying just as much as everyone else but due to our choice of hardware platform we are not getting the same service as others.

 

In my opinion NowTV have graphically demonstrated their inability to adequately cover all their supported platforms and I think that it would be better for everyone if they publicly announced a rationalisation and removed the app from some devices altogether.

 

Personally im an AppleTV user, and selfishly I would like them to update the app and keep it updated - but I can certainly see them dropping all Smart TV built in Operating systems.

 

If they concentrated on:

 

Roku/NowTV (the same thing)

AppleTV

Games Consoles (grudgingly.. the experience isnt great on them but possibly the largest untapped user base).

 

then maybe they could keep on top of app updates.

 

they certainly cant at the moment.

Who is exactly in charge of updating the apps is it R&d sounds like whoever it is they need firing. It’s bad enough the Apple TV app has not been updated but now people with LG and Sony etc suffering error problems. Like u said when boost was released I think I’m right that it supported nowtv 4k box, black box nowtv, PS4 and Samsung TVs.

Hi. 

having this same problem. Hey be had to do a factory reset and it kicks back in once you log in. 

It seems the cookies maybe need wiping but as far as I can tell there’s no function for that. 


the above fix is a little annoying but definitely works. 

I’ve also found that the nowtv app on my phone can’t airplay to my LG tv where every other app does.

 

hope this helps.

Do you mean a factory re-set on the tv?

I do. It’s in the main settings. 

It’s easy to do but you have to log back in to all your apps. I’ve fixed mine this way.
