Ratings and Reviews
A bit of everything at anytime!
I'm new to Now TV having just signed up about a week ago and am thoroughly enjoying this app with the wide range of channels including a few of my old favourites that were discontinued from my previous service provider. I know that it's early days yet but I don't forsee any problems such as that which seem to plague other users according to the posted reviews. I watch exclusively on my iPad Air and have had a perfectly smooth running service with no issues so far. I watch a bit of everything (except sport!) and I'm always able to find something good on at any time of day/night. All in all then, very pleased 😁
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.
Why can’t I download over 4G and more?
So you’re eager to download an episode of your new favourite show for your commute to work and decide to download it at home, but for one of the countless reason why it doesn’t in Now Tv you go to download at the station. You think to yourself actually sometimes my mobile connection is faster than my home WiFi. While waiting for the train you click the download button and are told that for some reason it only can be downloaded over WiFi. Now I get that some like to save on their data, but for people that don’t care or who have unlimited data what is the reason? Netflix allows.
Also when casting to a TV why can’t I have the 30s back and forth buttons on my phone like normal and are then able to move the video easily?
Now like most people I like GOT, Get Shorty, Billions amongst other series so have to put up that Sky own the rights and so are forced to use this rubbish app. If you want to compete with the likes Netflix improve your kit!
