Absoltely shocking, you pay for an on demand service you shouldn't be served ads as well. Can you imagine Netflix ever doing this? No because they value their customer experience. Sky do not. It's all about money, not the user.
Unsubscribing purely due to the ads.
I am really annoyed with this. I accept ads are necessary when you are not paying a subscription but they are now just taking the micky. It was only 2 or 3 months ago their prices went up. Now they are making more money out of us by showing us ads. I will be following the others and cancelling my subscription. I do not like companies who abuse their customers trust just to keep their shareholders happy.
Yes ridiculous, it’s already over priced for what it offers compared with all the other streaming services we have and adverts now… a step too far. Trying to squeeze more money out with boost. A cynical, greedy trick. A mistake, they will lose lots of subscribers as people realise. We’re off.
They've already lost me as a customer directly because of this. Night after night they have been broadcasting not my chosen viewing but content I did not choose to watch and I will not accept this on a paid streaming service. Especially as I was paying for Boost.
At the beginning of last week I was happy with movies, entertainment and boost. Now I have cancelled the lot.
So to be clear... I was happily a NowTv customer at the start of last week. I'd had movies for the better part of a year, was paying £3 for boost since the start of the year when my 3 month £1 offer expired I'd had entertainment since December.
The unskippable ads for other programs were annoying but I was putting up with them. But as of today I've been getting ads for dog food! Even if I had a dog the ad would be wasted on me as the product is not even available in the UK!
I can only hope this is a mistake and will be fixed very soon.
