Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Could you repost the link, not showing up?

 

Yes I use HDHomeRun with channels, gets you all the freeview channels and does offer an EPG they’ve now added PIP support too which is very nice. I only really use NowTV personally for Sports so current app in this iteration is fine for me the 50fps being far more important than the 5.1 albeit the 5.1 would be a nice addition and would have me consider some of the other packages but truth be told there is just so many television shows/movies as it is on Netflix, Prime, Disney+ etc. The entertainment/cinema packs just feels like a situation where if you’ve run out of things to watch on those then add it on for a month or two!

 

My only gripe with NowTV is feels crazy to charge £11.99 and £9.99 for those packs when Netflix will only be costing £13.99 after the bump, feels like a trick missed not to merge those two packs together and charge £12.99 or something...

Dont suppose you’ve got anymore information or links you can send me regarding hdhomerun.

I completely agree with you regards to the Nowtv packages they should merge the two, I just feel with Nowtv that even though the total cost for all the packages is cheaper than sky q it’s still a lot for a streaming subscription etc

For all things HDHomeRun, have a look at silicondust.com

I’ve had one of their devices for a couple of years now. Mainly use it as a backup for Freeview stuff, which we normally watch via streaming. Bought a Plex Lifetime on offer a while back so can use Plex DVR to schedule recording and Plex app for playback. SiliconDust also have a PVR (paid subscription) or there’s the Channels app. 

Tivo was fab back in the day - had two back in 2000. Hackable & moddable - brilliant! Ahead of it’s time back then, VHS was king, Sky+ was in it’s infancy. But the whole PVR/DVR concept wasn’t easy to grasp back then, people didn’t “get it”! Eventually “original” Tivo lifetime support ended (around 2009/2010?) and we got Sky+ for a while. But then along came iPlayer etc and streaming....

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Ive been fairly happy with Now TV since the update but I went downstairs yesterday to show my son Liverpools second goal yesterday on a 4k firestick and the picture quality on sky sports looked fantastic compared to my 4k apple tv

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

The nowtv app is so bad compared to the 4k Amazon, I’m experiencing slow user interface, continue watching is not updated. Truly shocking how this app can be so different on separate devices. It really does beggar belief. I want to use the Apple version but I just simply can’t. We’ve had this discussion before.

Totally agree as normal.

 

Shocking how an app that was in beta for 8 months with goodness knows how much feedback... and then they release the version in the state that it is...

 

and to rub salt into the wounds one week later the Firestick version appears out of thin air and completely out performs the AppleTV one in every sense.

 

I too cannot use the AppleTV app - a real shame - i want to, but I cannot.

 

Also a shame that despite our vocal criticism, and their placating comments - they have made no updates to the app in the last2 months since its been released - so the promised 5.1 audio support and AppleTV TV app integration seem to be something they have little intention of fixing.

 

Meanwhile, sadly, the Firestick app is now my app of choice and actually works very well.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Can’t see any obvious changes but again the app on Apple TV has been updated at the same time the iOS app has for iPhone. Least something is happening though! 🤞🏻for some more significant updates sooner rather than later

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Yes it needs a rewrite, again!

STV launched recently and that’s a native UI and super responsive. Then there is the Rolls Royce, Disney+ which expands the native UI to make it even better and the only thing it’s missing is top shelf.

Then there is the Lada, NowTV, maybe they should add a sunroof to add some extra value!

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I wouldn’t hold your breath for any updates with the things they missed out of the official release. I emailed the trials manager and got a response saying that even though the stuff was mentioned and promised other things were prioritised for the release. So basically I took that as a no we’re not getting them.

I've totally given up believing they will fix the AppleTV app I gave them basically a year of dithering about and have totally given up which I am sad about.
