Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Hi

 

A couple of thoughts re. your last post.

 

Firstly.. be a bit more patient as im sure their social media people dont work 24 hours!... if you tweeted them mid-late afternoon I think its not unreasonable to expect a reply the following day.

 

Secondly... I purchased the NowTV box for £24 myself, as a stop-gap until the appleTV app arrived... and for the sole reason of taking advantage of the boost function.  It must be noted that before I was using the boost function on the PS4 app... however using the app with a ps4 controller is horrendous so thats why I paid the £24 for the box.

That being said, im actually quite impressed by the picture quality.  I have a 4K TV and just got rid of SkyQ... and I must say that NowTV is almost better than SkyQ was.... at the very least as good.

 

Im not sure why your brother seems unimpressed... perhaps theres a fault.  its been good for me.

We want to advise you that Apple TV is not on the radar at the minute an update is not available and we have no time frame on when it will be. When it is we will make all apple TV users aware.

Hmmm...

 

A non answer then as it already exists and is in use, just not in the UK. 

Looks like they don’t want my money!

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Firstly Nadine thank you for informing us about the situation that’s all we have wanted. Can I take it from that then that at some point say within the next few weeks that the app will be updated. If you can give a time frame even in weeks then I will hold on but if we’re talking months then I’ll just go and buy another device. But thank you Nadine for responding.

From that official, and very terse response, I'd say you're looking at months if not years for Apple TV, if ever at all. Surely no-one realistically was thinking it would be any different, what with the tests being pulled, and no update being done in over 4 years.

I'd heartily recommend a Roku Streaming Stick if you wish to stay with NowTV, but use your Apple for everything else as it's a much superior device.

 

Nadine's statement, "Apple TV is not on the radar at the minute, an update is not available and we have no time frame on when it will be" speaks volumes, and is clear for all to see that Apple TV does not factor into any of their plans for NowTV.

Well Guys

 

Nadine said, "...Apple TV is not on the radar...an update is not available...we have no time frame on when it will be."

 

All that equals, How long is a piece of string? 

 

Give up, there's no hope.

PS. OK, there's a very faint glimmer.

Hey Rob

 

Glad your back, like your answer to this thread but mines pithier.

 

Only kiffing, still how are you doing, hope you're OK and that's all's right with the world (apart from storm Ciara - which I think is pronounced "see-air-ra", not the multiple ways the BBC are pronouncing it).

 

Thinking about having a beer.

 

Catch you later.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

All I can take from nadines reply is that Apple at no time in the future are going to update the app in the store, this despite Ireland and Italy getting updated apps so the question why not uk. Is it down to technical problems or cost and if the appletv isn’t getting the update I’m assuming other devices won’t be. So I think anyone who’s got an Apple TV might as well delete the nowtv app because it ain’t gonna get better.

Re: Update Now TV app for apple TV

Blimey, that seems a bonkers decision. Guess it means I can run out my subscription and abandon the service though. At least it’s nice to know.
