Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I would be more than happy for this app to be released as it is, can’t bare the thought of going back to the old app.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Three options for current beta As I see it:-

 

they could release build 3

They could renew build 2 license on TestFlight (they did this twice on the previous beta program that was never released)

public release and or expiration

Never released in the U.K...

 

Although I understand the previous beta had a different colour scheme to the current beta / one released in Ireland.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

I dont want to be the pessimist here... but it just feels like this is so close to the wire now that in all likelihood the beta will be allowed to expire and be non functional for a time before its either re-instated or a new build replaces it.

 

Im expecting some downtime!  I hope not.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Well just had an email saying there going to release the current version with some bug fixes etc, surely that’s a good sign things are happening.

Feels more like a test flight extension than a rebuild on the basis it’s just “bug fixes” perhaps with lockdown etc it’s pushed there timelines back which is understandable.

 

shame no boost support on this next version by the sound of things.

I must admit I was expecting a bit more, but may the pandemic has pushed the timeline back as you say.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Just saw the email too.

 

On the plus side - the beta shouldn't expire... and releasing this version is better than dropping it altogether and its usable for the general public.

 

On the minus side - after 3 months of further development theres nothing significantly different and it seems to have the same version number - this shouldn't be possible.  If its 6.2.8 then its the SAME as the one that we've had for 3 months surely.  if there are any differences at all including bug fixes  it will have a different version number surely?

Also, no boost support seemingly either still.   Not boding well for the final release if we haven't got boost in 3 betas now.... i fear it will not be forthcoming and thats a big mistake in my opinion.
