Update Now TV app for apple TV

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.

Where did you hear that it was a joke?

Ignore him. He comes on here every few days and proclaims that the beta has been delayed or cancelled or was never actually going to happen, but he never provides his source. Yes, it's annoying that Now TV haven't provided an update on what's going on with the beta, but that's nothing new, and it's not helpful to spread (mis)information without providing a credible source.

I've just checked his posting history and you're right, he's just a troll. 

I assume the beta is now in the hands of a select few and we'll see the finished product within the next 2-3 months.

I am not here to provide any misinformation. I have been told its not happening I cant take his or her name here. But I want offical reponse from Now Tv guys, why its not happening. We were promised to get update on beta by end of august. No one followed it up. likewise many of you I also want this to happen. I have been told about Now tv 4k box months ago to compete apple tv 4k box which come true just couple of days ago  they released now tv 4k box. now i am worried beta thing if its also true. I just asking any offical to confrim it. its shame how this update has been handled. I love to see new Now tv app for apple tv with atleast 1080p support. 
I am affaird but this 2-3 months assumption is flase hope.

Come on Now tv team stop giving people wrong hopes. please send another email to who signup beta testers that dont tell anyone but beta testing is delayed. guys this app is not coming till next year. 

Only thing is coming soon on sky is new cable SKY Q box, which will work like virgin tv. You would not need any satlitle connection for it. I dont know its exciting for anyone atleast not for me. look like they are going backwards not forward.

You're obsessed, give it a rest. Go and watch some 4K Netflix and chill out.

I’m up and running on my Apple TV 4K. Only problem I have at the moment is that once the beta was set up and I tried to watch something, the app thinks it’s anew device and therefore I can’t reregister my device until January 1st as I added my iPad to my fourth slot last week. Having a browse around the app so far though it looks good and of course the all important mytv section is there which is the main thing I’ve been longing for on my Apple TV.

It's worth remembering that everyone on the trial signed an NDA, so you must not talk about it publicly.

Is anyone allowed to say whether it has integrated Siri search?

An NDA prevents the disclosure of pretty much everything.

HI, was the trial for only the Apple Tv 4k. I have the non 4k latest one but have not heard anything. I had the email to say I was going to be part of it but it had been delayed.

On the 4th gen/non-4K ATV here and got the beta app via Test Flight yesterday afternoon. Email came in from Now TV at 4pm yesterday afternoon (Tue 12 Dec).

I'm rather surprised not to get a reply to my query EM sent to the trials manager last night, in response to the invitation mail of yesterday, today.

Any news on this update that’s been talked about for months now? The app on the Apple TV is appalling and needs updating badly.

I just canceled my Entertainment and Cinema packages.

 

The app is unbearable and I won't be forced into buying another streaming device. I like my Apple TV and have seen the potential of what it can do using other apps.

 

October 2015 being the last date of update is taking the p*ss. 

 

Bye, NOW TV.
