Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

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!

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

If you looked through this thread you’d find out how, also you’d find out in theory the current beta should have been over months ago. Yet no communication or release.

I ask myself what am I missing that makes people blindly give Sky/NowTV money for an overpriced, poor quality service respectively.

The best thing I did was cancel Sky more than 10 years ago and I only pay for NowTV occasionally to watch a box set I fancy.

Vote with your feet.

@MrZippy 

 

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...

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.

Hi@nst

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.

Hi@nst

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 🙂

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

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 !
