Re: Cannot view Now TV Entertainment on YouView? (Humax DTR-T2000)

I can understand there are various contractual issues between BT and Sky. They're obviously competing in the same space so there's obviously a bit of friction there. So I can't watch the entertainment stuff from NowTV on my YouView box, not the end of the world, as others have said, I can watch on Chromecast. I've got loads around the house.

 

Except NowTV restrict that as well. They count each Chromecast as a device which is completely bonkers. So I have my YouView box as 1 device, the lounge Chromecast as 1 device, the bedroom Chromecast as 1 device, and my phone as 1 device. Then my son tries to watch something on his Chromecast but he can't because it won't let me make any changes as I've already made 1 change that month. My daughter also can't watch anything on her tablet also. It's utterly ridiculous. I know I can beg a support rep to give me more changes but why should I have to? I've never had to with Netflix. That wouldn't solve the problem anyway, it's still not enough devices to support what my family uses (YouView box, 4 Chromecasts, 4 phones/tablets).

 

I'm pretty sure my 3 month special offer is up soon anyway and I can't wait to cancel it. The films available are mostly old and the new ones are generally rubbish. About the only good stuff on Entertainment is Alan Partridge which I've now watched.

Hi Darren

 

If you really want to cancel your 3 month entertainment pass you should do so now rather than later because if you wait too long you could find yourself paying an extra £6.99 for another month of viewing you don't want.

 

However, if you cancel your pass now you will still get your 3 months of free viewing without running the risk of having money debited from your account.
