May I ask.. what’s the point of live pause in context of NowTV?
I think my opinion comes from the fact that mostly I forget that there is a live TV watch option - I really do....
The reason being that all the content is available straight after broadcast (and sometimes during!) and of course its AD free!..... I’d rather watch something after the event.... as I say sometimes things are available 5 minutes into live and then you get to watch it through without ads... and actually ‘beat’ live transmission towards the end.
so why would you watch something live... ads and all.. when the content is available without ads and of course you can pause it.
... just interested. As I say I never use live watching.
I'm not a sports fan and never watch it...
but yes I can see how watching sports live is important and therefore the ability to pause!
I was being a bit narrow minded in the context of broadcast TV shows riddled with ads as they are!
To answer your question...
Boost.. of course. But the icing on the cake will be full AppleTV TV app integration. By all accounts we are getting the latter (and that was a pleasant surprise as I wasn't expecting it seeing as Neflix refuse to cooperate too).
Cant really think what more a streaming service needs.
To me, the integrated up-next functionality is essential when replacing a PVR service such as Sky to enable you to keep track of the latest episodes you are watching. This is why the AppleTV box is unbeatable in my opinion - its just so handy to be presented with the next available show there.... and Netflix is a huge pain not playing ball. Granted, Netflix dont often release shows weekly - though when they do its a pain to have to remember to keep going back into the Netflix app to check on availability.
@Phoe66 I completely agree. The new app is simply not designed for use with the Apple TV remote. It's very unfriendly, and unintuitive. It's also incompatible with the remote apps on iOS and Apple Watch for the same reason. Given that's apparently a universal app, it makes no sense to use a non-standard interface for playback.
Share your frustration re:apple remote, that's why I purchased an Universal remote for £20 and paired it with the apple remote and so much easier to use, no more swiping and well worth the additional outlay.
