Hello, I have been following nowtv.com now for years. Great service. Great on-screen-design.
But when when we be able to watch e.g. the Discovery live stream in HD? Or Nickelodeon? Or Paramount? To offer SD streams nowdays is "stone age".
Also on-demand movies should be 1080p quality in 2019.
When will be finally see quality improvements?
SD is 576i
NowTV is 720p.
So while not 1080p ‘Full HD’, it is ‘HD’ as in ‘HD Ready’
I have been informed by an advisor at Now TV that it’s being worked on an a announcement will be made soon. The word soon can be according to them be anytime. It can be today, tomorrow, next week, one month or next year, that information has not been given.
When I asked if NOW TV would have a payment tier system (think Netflix payment plan) they did say it was something they were looking into but I’m thinking they might want to announce something in the next couple of weeks, That is pure speculation on my part as I have no Inside Information.
just something in my waters considering NOW TV haven’t had a big announcement in awhile.
I know this might be grasping at straws but maybe subscribe to the NOW TV YouTube channel in the event they might announce something on there.
Thanks for your time in reading this post
Yes, @RoyB you need to mend your ways. Of course, technically you are correct, but we all know what the OP was asking and quite frankly, 720 cannot be considered HD, it's more like SD+ (which isn't an official rating but one that more accurately describes it). Also the other issue is that for over FOUR YEARS, people have been crying out for full HD and 5.1 surround. This idea that NOW have been hinting/ suggesting that it's all just right around the corner has been speculated for well over a year now, and still no official confirmation of any upgrades to the service. I'm sure it will come one day, but it confounds me that they haven't sorted this out years ago. It's the main reason I don't watch movies on Now and my lovely money goes to Netflix instead, who knows, Apple TV might also get some of my spendy, yet NOW will only ever get me paying for the entertainment package every now and again.
Sort yourselves out NOWTV.
Or we could call 720p HD- 😛
But ‘HD Ready’ is the time-honoured, if somewhat dishonest, name for 720p resolution and the TV sets that provide 1280 * 720 screens.
