Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I watched the footy on the ATV NowTv Beta app yesterday - on the one of my TVs not set up for 5.1. Have to say, the picture quality was very good indeed. Excellent in fact. Compared to the NowTv app on my BT/Youview box which is temporarily restricted to 25FPS - what an absolute mess in comparison.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

@Hooba I’m trying to figure out if Sports via the beta app is 1080p 50fps for everybody or only for Boost pass holders. Sounds very likely you were seeing 1080p 50fps! Key question is “Are you a Boost pass holder”?

@dr_necessitor  Yes, I have Boost, so can't help you. Sorry !

 

In other news. Can confirm that the Beta does work with tvOS14.

Why is it restricted?  Are there issues with the BT app?

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

@Hooba Thanks, no worries. Yes I’ve been running the beta app on tvOS 14 (a beta release) for a few weeks now. One less thing to scupper it! (I may be mis-remembering but I think an earlier NOW TV beta app was sunk by the last release of a tvOS upgrade)

It’s a shame Picture in Picture doesn’t work with TVOS 14 but I guess I was just wishing it would.

@Dean0989 

 

You cant make that statement yet.  This is still the beta.

 

We know that certain things arent on the beta that (apparently) will be in the release such as boost (we live in hope) and AppleTV TV app integration.  Perhaps picture in picture is another of those things not in the beta that will make their way into the final release.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

@mf040 It's been restricted by NowTv. See here: https://help.nowtv.com/service-status/

 

It's not BT's app. It's a NowTv app that's available on Youview boxes. BT's box is, amongst other things, a Youview box.

 

I'll add - anyone that subscribes to NowTv directly through BT is pretty much unaffected. It's only the live Now Sports channels that are problematic, and those are all available through the  BT TV guide, so the NowTv app isn't needed to watch those. 

 

But anyone that uses a NowTV app on Youview box (BT or otherwise) that subscribes to Sports directly through NowTV with Boost, isn't getting the 50FPS they've paid for.

I updated to TVOS 14 myself yesterday app has continued to be very good. The beta I expect will get one more build before they launch it publicly

Cheers @Hooba , looks like it might not be a permanent problem.
