App quite good but awkward to use on 3/4G mobile
NOW tv app is great if you have a good WiFi signal but the only way I can see sport on app at the moment is on an old 3G sim tablet as my landline & therefore broadband is not working. Adding a pass then activating it to watch sport means 2 sign ins on Internet then on the device NOW tv app. It really quickly uses up data if you are PAYG. Video not clear using mobile "Hot Spot" pairing (but continuity of streaming & audio are good though). I can use my mobile data allowance on smartphone monthly subscription to get better quality video on WiFi hot spot. Cannot cast to tv from a mobile device either. They have it all tied up to make it a big hassle. Could always pay for satellite tv with sports added on top of base payment but I only watch 1 sport/channel no cinema or entertainment or kids channels!
It works, it’s fine
I am very happy with the content available on NowTV, which is why I signed up in the first place. The design for the app is not the most user friendly for several reasons. The fast forward/rewind function on the TV is not easy to use, you have to choose a speed at which to fast forward and it’s hard to know if you’re in the right place. It would be so much easier if you could select where you are and move it backwards and forwards with a preview screen instead of guessing. I have never been able to get NowTV to cast to my TV, despite being able to on all other streaming services. On the iPhone app, the downloads aren’t just readily available on your home screen, which they should be. When you are downloading episodes, they don’t continue to download unless the app is open. So you have to sit there and watch them download, and make sure your phone doesn’t lock halfway through. When you go to downloads, they appear in a random order, they should be sorted chronologically instead of just randomly jumbled up. When you want to download new episodes, there should be a “more episodes” option underneath your downloaded episodes, like there is on netflix. Instead you have to manually search for the tv show and find the correct place. When you’re dealing with something which has 19 seasons, stuff like this starts to get really irritating. Like I said, it’s fine, it works, but the app is not very well designed.
The worst TV app imaginable - avoid
Now TV is without a doubt the worst TV app I’ve used. It lacks even the most basic features you would expect from a phone app of this kind. For one, the ability to download programs to watch at a later date - inexplicably this is only possible if you’re connected to a WiFi network. Say you manage to work around these arbitrary restrictions, find a WiFi connection somewhere, and download a programme - chances are you’ve done this so that you can watch it later when you don’t have access to the internet, e.g. on a plane or underground train journey, or even just a trip to the countryside. Well guess what, the Now TV app has another trick up its filthy sleeve - you can’t watch downloaded programmes without an internet connection (“Sorry we couldn’t connect you to the now TV app. Please make sure you are online and try again”). Read that again, slowly, and try and imagine the sheer blundering imbecile who made that decision. It honestly beggars belief. Not only does it fly in the face of logic and common sense, but these are basic functions which competitors like Netflix have had for years at this point. How is it possible for Now TV to miss the point so badly? I was so fed up I cancelled my subscription there and then - will watch the programmes some other way.
