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.
Managed to get a response, it’s a privacy issue on their server. They don’t recognise the new model ID of the new model yet… basically didn’t update their app properly as everyone else did! No real surprise… “working on a fix” so probably be working again around July time knowing them…
@dr_necessitor Having spent the last few hours playing with the new remote on my 1st gen 4K Apple tv, my verdict is that the new remote is well worth the £55. The jog wheel is much easier to control than the slide-over method of the original remote, although by default that method is still available. Also, if you’ve set your old remote to control the sound on your tv/soundbar/home theatre, the new remote will inherit that. But the old remote didn’t have a mute button, so you still have to set up the new remote for that. Being heavier, the new remote feels much better in the hand.
Here endeth the advert…back to normal programming.
@Enapace Yes, that’s about it. Other apps like Netflix and Disney+ bring up a single timeline bar and repeated touches will move forwards and backwards 10 seconds at a time. Possibly, in time, the Now app will be brought in line with the other apps.
However, the new remote is way better than the old one.
I've just ordered the new AppleTV, pick up tomorrow.
Wasn't going to bother, but new model supports eArc. So will be able to route 5.1 audio from NowTV on BT box to my pair of HomePods.
The current NowTV and AppleTV relationship is a shambles. It's quite extraordinary that they implemented full app integration but left out 5.1. It's just bizarre.
