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.
Maybe Vodafone know something we don't if you have followed this thread for the last 4+ years Nowtv customers are always the last to know anything,even the beta testers in the last few years are kept in the dark re: any updates on Apple tv!!!
Avid follower of the thread and a current beta tester. There’s a part of me that wonders what I’ll do if the updated app ever properly launches...
Only started following the thread when I got Apple tv last year, and thought the Nowtv app was very poor and old,but Apple tv is so good for most of my streaming needs,I have persevered with it,and when I joined the beta test in March,the app is so much better and easier to use, and hope it gets released soon, and include boost!!!!
It is definitely coming soon please just be a little more patient i appreciate it has been a long wait but it is very nearly over and then we can all experience a better experience on our AppleTV boxes.
The continue watch feature is the same across all the platforms. It is a far better experience though for one thing you can now watch every channel the UI is a complete overhaul and i find very good indeed.
I'm not quite sure what else you want from the service. I would like Red Button and Sports on Demand but I am perfectly willing to wait until after launch in a future update for those.
Not sure if you know but Sport on demand is now available on the Now tv app on other platforms.
It is indeed I meant integrated into the app as a menu i am glad to see it launching across NowTV have wanted for years.
Hey everyone! I've been following this thread for months now and decided if possible it's time to take the plunge. Just wondered how everyone managed to actually be part of the beta for Apple TV? I've tried to Google a link but I only seem to find the one for Italy which is a little annoying! If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be very greatful 🙂 thanks!
Fret ye not for the answer is that there is NO reason for anybody to “blindly give Sky/NowTV money for an overpriced, poor quality service”!
In my opinion, you are using NOW TV correctly - by turning it off & on as & when there is content that you want to watch.
Same goes for Netflix etc.
Streaming should not be consumed/used as an “always on” service (in the same way that Freeview or a 12 month contract Sky service is). The option is always there to turn the tap...
I am using the Now tv app as I am part of the beta trial, and have started cancelling the passes for next month when the Nowtv app is updated for Apple tv?
Sorry what you typed didnt make any sense.
you are on the trial but cancelling your passes? um OK. Not much point being on the trial then - having an active pass is a pre requisite for participation on the trial (obviously).
You think that the final public version will be released by next month? um, maybe - hopefully... but whats that got to do with cancelling passes?
Sorry what you typed is quite confusing.
Sorry for the typo,but I buy my passes 3 months in advance,mostly with gift cards from Argos & Curry's and expire at the end of November, when hopefully the trial has ended,I have enjoyed watching Nowtv since the trial started in March, but I never pay full price for any passes, and always negotiate a new deal before passes expire or try and buy new gift cards, sorry for the confusion!!!
Ah ok that makes more sense now!
My top tip.. wait for 'black friday' as they usually do the 'one year for £99 entertainment and movies pass'.... at that price its very good value for money.
Thanks for that advice,but I usually always look for deals for the football,and as Sky has cancelled the weekly passes,it is a little bit harder to negotiate new deals but will wait till black Friday,I am enjoying watching the beta app on Apple and hopefully when the trial is concluded,everything promised will be on it, including boost.
Unfortunately, I think you just missed the best sports pass deal that they will be offering this year/during the current sport season. The offer they had on for the last few weeks was Sports pass for 12 months at £25 per month. Unlucky. Hopefully they do something similar come Black Friday that you can pounce on. As has already been said, the £99 for 12 months of entertainment & cinema pass that has been on offer for the last 2 years is something I have taken advantage of and enjoyed having 🙂
I have been with Now Tv since the start. Where as I used to have a live subs constantly, this is not the case any more. Sadly their lack of support for several platforms is shocking in this day and age.
Recently purchased another Apple Tv, whilst every other app works well, the Now Tv app is garbage.
Now Tv should really hang their heads in shame.
Now Tv , get your act together !
Just saw a tweet from now tv help saying they hope to have the update out in coming weeks, they were already meant to launch it last month but was a last minute issue!!
Looks like it is coming
