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.

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.

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.

720p is HD but I'm sure you know that already https://recombu.com/digital/article/what-is-hd-the-difference-720p-1080i-and-1080p_m10888-html

 

As for 1080p FULL HD, that may be closer than you think 😀

I'm back on the beta too. Although I no longer subscribe to any of the channels. Mind you - this beta appears to run for another 3 months (why?!) so if 1080p makes an appearance between now and end August I might get to use it.

Hopefully we won’t have to wait to longer to have a release for the rest of us who weren’t on the beta, driving me crazy and looks like we might have to wait another 3 months

Is there any way to get on this beta at this stage? I have Sports and Entertainment passes and would be interested in testing the new app

I wouldn't mind being signed up to it as well, but I’m guessing we will have to wait.

Agreed I’ve wanted to sign up for a while. Contacted now tv directly and they didn’t have a clue what I was on about.

I’ve done that and it’s like they haven’t got a clue or are told not to say anything.

Complete joke. If my wife didn’t watch stiff on now tv I would drop my subscription. Doesn’t stop her complaining every time she tries to watch something. Sort it out Now TV. How hard can it be to port the iOS app?

I think it’s wrong that a Now TV rep hasn’t even responded to any of us.

It might be worth signing up to this if you haven’t already.

Does anyone think it will be released at the end of the month or am I just clutching at straws

Would love that to be true, but based on what?

Just someone said it was in beta for another 3 months and that would be around this time, so just clutching at straws I suppose.
Would just like to know a time frame instead of being left without any mention of it.

Well they might have and issue with TVOS... I am running the latest beta testing on one of my AppleTV’s and the App does not work since the latest beta release... I guess that’s what happens when you don’t update your apps to keep up with OS developments for over 4 years...

Looks like we have to roll back from tvOS 13 beta to 12.
