Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Just deleted Apple Tv from my devices. A great shame as now I have to use another device just to watch Now Tv.  Only watching Chernobyl now anyway, so will see how we go after that.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

  • @nickmorc I read something elsewhere suggesting that the release of full integration of NOW TV with YouView is pretty imminent, so I’m going to speculate that perhaps the new NOW TV app for tv might be launched as part of that. Must stress that I have absolutely no inside knowledge about this, it’s purely my own guess work!

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I think the only conclusion that can be drawn is that Now TV is an extremely low priority on Sky's ToDo list. Evidently people are still buying obscenely expensive satellite subs, hence the focus on Sky Q. 

 

Funny really, as with GOT gone and the next big fantasy shows on Amazon (untitled Middle Earth show) and Netflix (The Witcher) you have to wonder what Sky have left to offer.

@dr_necessitor I had heard something similar. You do feel like a second rate citizen compared to their core satellite tv business LOL

@moroboshi Think you hit the nail on the head. The only decent series left at the moment is Chernobyl. 

Just started watching season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead which has just landed on Amazon Prime, quite good it is too.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Apple TV Testers should have received in the last few minutes an EM from Apple Testflight enabling again the Beta version on their boxes. I have at least. It seems our pressure here and elsewhere has worked. 

 

Now resuming being quiet about the trial after my justified imo rant about its withdrawal.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

If you want HD video from Sky you have to pony up for a satellite subscription. Don't expect that to change for a very, very, very long time.
