I am very happy this beta has not been abandoned had been getting worried we have waited a long time but so has rest of the community. NowTV i think is becoming a stronger platform this year though for certain.
I must say, everyone taking about the swipe / Fast forward thing is something ive been meaning to mention myself - you are all totally right.
This is currently functionally a big let down - in that most (not all!) apps on the AppleTV allow you to click on the remote, and then scrub right and left for FF/RW. However the BEST of these also give you a thumbnail view of what you are scrubbing to - and thats so handy.
Some dont give a thumbnail and thats less useful but still OK ish.
The trouble with NowTV is that the interface they have chosen in the beta anyways is the same as other platforms - this works fine when the remote has a dedicated FF/RW buttons but as the AppleTV doesnt, it needs to allow for that and therefore work in the 'standard' apple TV method of slick swipe for scrubbing.
The way it is currently, is very cumbersome indeed.
I do hope they address it - we shall see. I suspect however that they might not - even at the sacrifice of usability - to have the interface "standard" across platforms - but it does make it hard to use when we dont have a FF/RW button.
It was something I mentioned in the survey we did months ago hopefully they took it on board because it is really annoying I understand why they have done it but effects the overall experience of the app when watching boxsets.
Continue watching has disappeared a few times, plus viewed episodes are not always marked. Compared to the 1st beta it’s better as it always played first episode then, despite showing correct next episode, now assuming it’s there it plays the correct episode.
Interesting i've never seen it missing on mine always had it showing the current episodes for me had big issues with it in beta 1. I've had a odd issue with live tv not working after i switched channels a couple of times reported that.
