Update Now TV app for apple TV

Will the Now TV app for Apple TV ever get an update?


The current version is complete rubbish and makes me regret ever getting a Now TV pass.


Unless there is an update my Now TV experience will be very short indeed.

Hmmm...Ive just tested IPlayer again frame rate matching not working for me


i have my native Apple TV set to 4K 60HZ I would expect IPlayer to switch it 1080P 50HZ or at least just 50HZ which it does seem to do for me...?


The channels app does it fine (for HDHOMERUN)

I am a NOW TV user. Recently I took the Amazon Prime trial up. V impressed as it worked straight away through the Apple TV App allowing us to catch up with the next episode in the series! 

We are now seriously thinking of ditching NOW TV and going over to Amazon Prime. 


Which of course means that we will not be spending our money with Sky? Don’t understand the complacency shown by this commercial operator to keep ahead of the game with reference to upgrading the NOW TV App?


Please NOW TV, upgrade your app for your customers. Thank you.

@Anonymous User Hi there, is there any update available on an updated Apple TV app or upgrading streaming to 1080p?


And 5.1 audio would be a must. With Netflix & Amazon offering surround sound & 1080 as standard and the added benefit of Amazons TV app integration, Now Tv truly looks technologically dated.

The fact that the app logo remains green tells you everything you need to know.

I'm genuinely shocked, I thought Sky were finished with the Apple TV for good. Let's hope the new so delivers where it matters.

- frame rate matching

- universal Siri search

- my list

- history

- TV app support

- modern UI 

- top shelf

- higher quality video - 1080p support at the very minimum for whenever Sky finally start streaming watchable video at modern bitrates. 

- surround sound support, again for when (if) Sky finally decide it's time to compete with Netflix and Amazon

- resume play

- syncing between devices

- and no bugs or crashes!
