Re: Updated home screen!

Ok to be fair there has been tweaks and it is stable and there is now the red button short cuts to the tv guide and search functions.

I do think the Genres buttons should be at the top of movies instead halfway down.

How about the remaining buttons for movies or Entertainment?

Just bought 12 months option for the missus.

Re: Updated home screen!

I absolutely can't stand how long it takes to get into the app & start a live tv channel.

Since I mostly use it for live sky sports it makes it worse if I'm in a hurry to get a sport on.

It's absolutely a backwards step. The old layout was fine all that needed was a few bugs ironed out.

Also on the live streams, even at maximum stream quality, the way the picture compression works seems to be giving a more washy picture in the way of colour bleed & motion blur. I don't remember it being as bad in previous versions. I'm noticing the colour bleed on footie games a lot more than in the previous version of the app.  Maximum stream quality is now only 4830 when it used to sit on 4865 (Samsung TV)

Re: Updated home screen!

Doesn’t sound good.

Have you put your TV in sports mode so it doesn’t try to add tweaks and blurs fast sports?

Delete the app, turn telly  (mains) off and add the app again? Ethernet or 5ghz WiFi? Less interference.

I always use ethernet and set all picture enhancements to off, and nothing has changed in my setup - it's 100% the app update that's made worse the things I mention. Raging because it's always the same - users with slightly older technology are always crippled as the updates are always aimed at users of the most recent hardware.

I wouldn't mind if i had the option to stay on old app version but with tvs there is usually no choice

Re: Updated home screen!

My Father was using the app, it was sluggish on his 2015/16 TV and he hated the new menus.

Amazon Prime and  reflux menus fly like a rocket on his TV and 1080p.

NowTV needs to listen to its customers if it wants retention. There’s always plenty of new fish out there... they hope!

Re: Updated home screen!

The improvement is awful. It’s not easy to find the live tv channels on the LG TV at all.

the favourites are clearly chosen provider favourites as nothing in the categories onscreen reflect what I would watch.

change it back please.

It’s not good.

 

It’s not old TVs either.  My new tv flies with Netflix, Amazon and you tube in 4K as does my other 2015 LG 50”.

Everything goes sluggish with NowTv.

Re: Updated home screen!

The new home screen is a load of rubbish. takes too much time to get to what you want. this is definately a step backwards. don't fix what isn't broken. why not have the option on the app for which view to have. detailed (as it was) or simple (dumbed down as it is now)

How about some feedback mods?
