Does anyone have any previous experiences of using Neulion's Sky Box Office App on the NOWTV box? What is the stream quality like? I am planning to buy the box and have some friends over to watch the fight with food and drink, and would hate for it to be a let down with a stream thats poor quality or constantly buffering. Thanks.


As with any streamed content @Anonymous User it depends on your broadband connection and the company that's providing the streamed content, which in this case is a company called Neulion (not NOW TV).

 

If you're intending to buy a NOW TV box, it will have to be 'activated' first. Which means you will need to create a NOW TV account and submit your credit/debit card details. You will then need to download and install the dedicated Sky Sports Box Office 'app'.

 

For more information, please refer to my previous posts within this topic...

Yes , I have experience of it , they startermd doing it for Joshua vs molina and then haye v bellew.
The neulion link usually works about 24-48 hours before the event starts. Watch out for dodgy streams and lip sync issues - although - i was given a refund when I complained about the quality .

We were unable to order and view the haye bellew fight - the link to the neurion page woyldnt let us register an account. Now, I'm staring to think we may be let down again and ne unable to boom it when it eventually becomes available. DI'd anyone else have issues booking the bellew fight amd if so any tips on how to avoid similar problems this week?

Why is the booking so last minute? I don't get the marketing theory behind that? Surely the earlier you make it available the less load on booking servers and the more potential buyers.

 

I brought a Now TV box but have no Sky Box Office app? Only the Sky Store?

You'll have to ask the service provider, Neulion about such matters @Anonymous User

The Sky Sports Box Office app can be found by accessing: 'Home' -> 'App Store' -> 'News, Weather, Sport' and navigating to the 'Sky Sports Box Office' tile. Click on the tile and select: 'Add app'.

Streaming quality as you would expect after paying £20 for a fight is perfect, unless you have slow internet speed I guess!

It sounds like from some of the guys posts above, that the sky box office app on now tv doesn't have access to the fight until 24-48hrs before that day. I am praying this is the case like most people here. I spotted recent fights on there during build ups like the haye bellew fight but I can't remember how close it was to fight night. Fingers crossed, it will go up soon. I don't get it either, but they're clearly prioritising sky customers, HBO in the states along with showtime. I guess a lot of different contracts going on. I don't get it either though

On Neulion twitter support they have confirmed it will be available to stream and will be able to be booked later this week.

Looking at when they made previous fights available it'll probably be Friday so book early to avoid the £7 price hike after Friday midnight.

The previous streams seem to have been a total shambles so not feeling too happy spending £20 on it.

I've been trying for days to book the fight on NOW TV using ( as instructed ) http://skyboxoffice.neulion.com/ and all I keep getting us a page that says -

There are no upcoming fights available to book at the moment. Check back here for updates before the next big fight!


Crumbs ! - it's a major event and only FOUR DAYS AWAY !

I checked on the sky TV box office and the fight IS AVAIALABLE TO BOOK. - so why not on NOW TV ???

Not at this rate. I've been trying for days to book it and no response from NOW tv who haven't got a clue !

Does anyone know when we can actually book the fight as it's only four days away.

I hope it works this time. For the bellew fight it was unwatchable (lip sync, every 20 seconds i would would have have to close and restart app on my laptop). I got refund, but was very annoyed since looking forward to the fight.

Im not sure if this time i should find a bar showing it or take risk and order it again. There must of had major server load issues, i just hope this time they have bough servers that can handle the load.

Christ ! That's not what NOW TV have told me. 😞

I can't find your previous post - is it possible to send a link ? Please.

Totally agree. How ridiculous - The worst part about it, is the inconsistency of all the different advice that we seem to be getting. I've been trying for days to book the flight but it only seems to be available on sky TV box office and not the now TV service via the neulion website !!

I read somewhere that they normally released the fight between 24 and 48 hours before the commencement of the fight. This seems utterly ridiculous as it's available to purchase everywhere else except on the Neulion box office which is used for NOW TV 😞

Can you not watch it through your TV? You may get a more stable stream that way.

I've got the now tv box, but it was only slightly better through that than laptop. We watch sky boxing reguarly in 2 rooms (laptop / playstation / now tv box) with no problems usually (maybe the odd little freeze now and then). Problems only happen when its via this neulion service. Had issue's with all all my past box office boxing events, but the bellew was absoultely terrible.

Oh that doesn't fill me with hope. I bought the Now TV box to watch the boxing on my TV as I'm not a sky subscriber. I hope this isn't a complete let down. What's your Internet speed?

I've got fibre optic, pretty quick (37.55 Mbps at the moment). one if the reasons i upgraded to fibre optic from standard was because of this issue. turns out it was not the speed of my internet, it was their poor service (neulion). Lots of complaints on Twitter on the night of bellew fight. i've sens another tweet to see if they've upgraded.

Ggg yeah I saw that too. Didn't notice any great response from neulion explaining how they found the problem and rectified it for next time nor any major apology.

also neulion support have not tweeted since 2016, hardly fills me with confidence.Why don't now tv / sky just stream it from their own servers in uk.
