At the risk of becoming a Now TV post troll, I'd just like to alert everyone to be sure to keep their pass scratch cards after applying the code and also take screen shots once the code is accepted. Last time I applied a 6 month code, it all seemed to go fine until I was charged full price the following month after my code seemingly vanished from my account.

No amount of wrangling with Now TV sorted the issue as I'd never had cause to keep the pass card or take screen shots in the 3 years I'd has the service. Just a friendly warning to the HUKD community ;-)

+++PLEASE NOTE: the main reason to buy these has been removed. They are phasing out the side loading of apps on the box - you can no longer use PLEX - which basically is the only reason to buy one.+++
Only buy if you want to use Sky Movies. Sky have silently removed the PLEX ability of these boxes making them worthless. Please be aware of this.
If anyone has a work around for the current issue - please share.

The *main* reason to buy these is if you want to watch Sky Entertainment or Movies, and they continue to work quite well for that. A *subsidiary* reason certainly has been removed, and if that's important to anyone they shouldn't buy.

Bought these boxes previously to stock up on passes - everytime I tried to apply a new unused voucher on their website it said it's not recognised. Nothing got round it. On live chat, when I complained, NowTV staff checked and actually confirmed my codes were valid and unused but also shockingly refused to credit them to my account and did everything possible to prevent me using the vouchers - they made it as difficult as possible and it didn't matter how much I complained I got nowhere. Many of my brand new passes had to be thrown unused as they just wouldn't apply them to my account and they didn't work when I tried to apply them myself as they just say they are not recognised. They are scamming people with these passes - this is clearly being done on purpose and has happened countless times to me - their systems the public have to use to apply the codes purposely say they are not recognised despite being new and perfectly valid and their customer services then act like a-holes and make it as difficult as possible for you to use the codes. This problem has got worse and worse and I have stopped buying them.

Totally moronic comment.

The main reason to buy these boxes is to watch legal TV services, which are great value, and work really well.

For what it's worth, I've had no issues getting the passes redeemed and the ones that didn't work, customer services on live chat activated them for me anyway. :)

Happened to me too, just last week. Customer service sorted it out eventually BUT KEEP THE CODE FOR AT LEAST A MONTH!

Same happened to me.Although the pass had been accepted when I keyed it in they'd been taking money out of my account for movies every month. The movie pass was still in date. He only wanted to refund one month too and renew the voucher thing. Be careful and look at your bank account if you've got an account with them.

I'm trying Netflix now.

I have had a couple of codes not reconised but a online chat has always sorted it out.
#27
Nice deal heat. i have an old card which has expired on mine so never have to worry about them taking subs haha. Try adding an old card see if they accept it
#28
Not had any problem with passes, but it does make sense to keep the cards as proof for a while. Thanks for the tip!

As for the deal, this is great value. The rrp for the entertainment pass is £42 and the movies is £40. It is possible to get cheaper codes on auction websites, but these are still far cheaper.

Thanks very much OP, picked up a £10 voucher for my order aswell

When the passes weren't working, their customer services staff couldn't care less that I had the original card pass infront of me so that's not going to help you. Every time, I literally had just scratched the card and it didn't work - these were not old cards. Keeping the card will not help you at all if it doesn't work. They didn't care that I had proof of purchase either.

These passes seriously feel like lottery scratch cards except lottery scratch cards have a higher win rate. Also, you cannot apply the codes to your account until you have less than a month left so by the time you find out it doesn't work you're screwed - when you have 4 month and 6 month intervals between applying codes, this becomes a huge problem in their favour - they are doing it on purpose.

A suggestion for this (not sure if it'll work) is when in the last 30 days of a current pass cancel it first. Effectively cancel now tv. Then on the first day after cancellation add the new 1. Not ideal and not the way the system should work but could be a workaround.

I always have the unrecognized voucher error message without fail and have to get online chat to sort it out, last time they suggested using Internet Explorer rather than Safari or Edge which I normally use, maybe that's the problem with code redemption for some users?
#39
You folks that have been billed unknowingly, do you know if your NowTV Account has an active or inactive pass?

I kinda fell out with NowTV when they put out a code - for full price movies. I fell for it because I truly believed I must have been misreading the billing when applying the code.

No - this is their usual scripted garbage. They always try and blame the browser lol. It makes no difference what browser is used whenever this happens - it is purposely being caused by their own systems. Also - once staff have entered the code on their own seperate private systems and magically recognised it and confirmed it is showing as unused and valid, the browser issue becomes totally irrelevant, and yet they still routinely refuse to credit the pass after saying it's valid and unused. If you get lucky and they offer you a goodwill credit to your account, and push them on why your code didn't work, they will lie - they always claim it's technical problems lol. Similar to you, every time I enter a code it's never recognised - I can't remember the last time a code I've entered has actually been recognised lol - it's a blatant scam.
