Now tv adverts super annoying!

Is there any way to get rid of those really annoying pre program adverts they are driving me mad. I have sky but chose to watch some programs on Nowtv instead as I cannot stand the normal tv adverts but this is becoming jus as irritating, why oh why did they put them in?

I am paying for the service you have already persuaded me, so stop advertising it!

 

this post ended up in the wrong section can it be moved to more relevant place?

Sadly you're stuck with them. Some people back out of the ads and go back in to the programme which can sometimes lead to the ad disappearing. I wouldn't mind if the ads were for something I'd be interested in but they never are Smiley LOL

I did a test yesterday and you have to watch 4 adverts before it will leave you in peace even if you keep backing out and in again.

Re: Now tv adverts super annoying!

That’s good to know, as I too find the adverts very annoying. The main reason I left Sky cause they plug adverts in their catch up, it is to be fair much worse than Now Tv and it’s always during the shows themselves too.

 

If Now Tv follow Sky in their footsteps for the adverts then I’ll be cancelling my passes. 

 

Most of the adverts I have zero interest in, in fact I find the adverts for the Premiership the worst as I can’t stand that league. If they wanted to keep some form of adverts I’d much rather have adverts on shows I watch.

They are so long as well. They should get rid of them seeing as we pay for the service.

I couldn’t agree more! I have just started a trial and will cancel it if I can’t find a way around these annoying trailers! It’s crazy

I totally agree, the service is great but I'll be cancelling my long running subscription shortly because I came to Now TV for what streaming's main attraction: no adverts. They are intrusive, flashing all over the place, irrelevant and never ending. They need to undo this.

It would appear the NowTv think that a cat food ads is relevant to a four year old child who was subjected to it every time she wanted to watch Peppa Pig? This is reply I got from a complaint to justify the ads! Beware this is only the beginning, soon ads are going to be shown before, during and after shows!

Agree that the ads are very annoying, and are not appropriate in a paid subscription service.

 

Any idea if they're specific to certain platforms? I just saw one on iPhone. I vaguely recall that on Roku they can be skipped, but I could be mistaken.

Well I thought momentarily that NOW TV may have listened to feedback from the customers.

Clearly I was wrong. 

 

The now TV LG  app developed a fault, for a short time after they fixed the fault, they stoped showing adverts for utter drivel and for programs I will never have any interest in. 

unfortunately I  was wrong, it was clearly only mild reprieve whilst they fixed the app properly.

 

Now back to watching lots of adverts for complete rubbish.

 

I very politely wrote to NOW TV asking them for at least to give us a button to skip or forwards to them, but they weren’t in the slightest bit interested.

 

I started a formal complaint and they rejected it. 

i’m perfectly capable of selecting programs I want to watch!

 

NOW TV try listening to your customers they pay your wages, you’ve absolutely no Interest in customers, get your house in order.

 

Or I will be going to Netflix, but I guess you couldn’t care less what your customers think!
