Hi, I'm new to using Now TV and I read some posts in 2012 that Now TV is not available for Smart TVs. is this still the case? I have a Sony Smart TV and i connected Now TV box in the HDMI port. I have tried several occasions, i can see the NowTV menus, etc. but when I try to play any show or movie, it says network or connection error (something like that). There has only been 1 occasion on a Saturday that I was able to play Live TV (Comedy Central) and never again. I tried restarting the box, and also logging off and back on but no avail.
I am able to play NowTV on my macbook and iPhone.
@Anonymous User the issue with Samsung TVs is not having a dedicate app on them. As you have a NOW TV box you should be fine. If you are getting connection errors, I'd suggest moving your box away from other electrical items and ensuring it's not tucked behind the TV.
why send me a email making out i can watch the entertainment pass pay for it then i have to spend ages searching the net to see why i i cant find it on my tv now im seeing it is not compatible with smart tv/internet tvs so there for i feel robed nothing but a scam in my eyes should of stated in the email not for tv
Hi @Anonymous User
Thank you for getting in touch, very sorry to hear you've not been able to watch on your smart TV. I'm sorry if you weren't aware of NOW TV not being available on any smart TVs except for LG. We don't say to customers that it's available on Samsung or other TVs. You can still view on other supported devices.
Sorry for any confusion caused.
NOW TV Team
@Anonymous User Where have you seen any publicity which says you can watch Now TV on a JVC smart TV? The only smart TVs which have a Now TV app are from LG.
Now TV ads which say "Turn your TV into a smart TV" are always referring to the Now TV box, which connects to your TV.
If this has solved your issue please mark this as an accepted solution.
