I'm really unimpressed with the picture quality on HD service via Apple TV box. Its more obvious when a black picture is displayed, the image is pixelated with large grey blocks. I know its nothing to do with my connection, its the over-compression of images to save bandwidth. This needs fixing as its adding yet another reason to end subscription.
What @marfanuk seems to be describing is the camouflage pattern reported by others mainly when watching Sky Sports across various NOW playback devices.
Here's one example thread linked below.
Mainly live Sky Sports channels for me across various playback devices.
Sometimes i can watch Sky Sports for weeks and the picture is pretty good on Boost, then all of a sudden the camouflage pattern effect rears it's ugly head again on different playback devices and different televisions in the house 😠.
I haven't noticed the camo blocking effect recently myself, though i do see reports here and over on Twitter that it is still happening.
You need to report what you are seeing to NOW live chat or send them a message using the communication methods in this link page below.
The quality is really bad, I paid for the boost but even with that it is a far cry from a proper Full HD. I ahve a 1Gb fiber connection si I am sure it is not that. All other streaming services look much better on the same TV. Nowtv is really a low quality overpriced service.
