Best steaming app on the planet

I love now tv. Unbelievable selection of the best movies and tv shows of all time. Recently you could only have four devices and make only one change per month. Now you can register up to six devices and there is no limit to the changes you make. This is great since I was waiting to put it on my iPad and Mac. Also, recently it was made possible for downloading content for use on the go. This is perfectly convenient for train or plane journeys or even at an area without WiFi. Overall now tv is a brilliant way to catch up on all those titles you’ve missed. The price is good but better still you can sometimes avail of promotions.

Great App

I only use the app, so can’t comment on the quality on laptops etc but I find it great and user friendly. The only downsides to it are that there isn’t always the full amount of seasons available to watch (Chicago fire only seasons 4&5), Also no subtitles option. Bit pricey for what you’re getting. But on the whole it’s worth it because it has a lot of shows that aren’t on other streaming sites. I like that it gives you a date that it’s available til, so you don’t log in one day expecting to watch something to see it’s been deleted.

Good selection but interface needs work!

I love the shows. Think it’s a bit expensive when we start to consider how much the add-ons are but for that price would expect an interface that is user-friendly and flawless and it is not that. The genres are muddled, the selection of shows varies from what device you watch it on (baffles me) and the connection to things like Chromecast is poor at best. It often stops in the middle of shows, restarts them entirely or just restarts from the beginning. Netflix have won on their platform. Simple, easy to use, accurate in recommending shows. Work is needed on the user-friendliness and algorithms in my opinion especially due to the cost of it!
