Some might be as you've got the price as £16 for four months in headline but it's actually £76.99 for four months.

Can you save the pass for a later date? Like a normal pass.

You seem to need to have paid at least one month at the normal rate before cancelling. My first choice are the cheap boxes with vouchers, I stockpile these when they are cheap. If I run out then I'll pay for a month and then cancel.

I've not run out of vouchers for some time, so not sure what the current situation is.

Yeah looks likes its new subscribers only, even though I only signed up a few weeks ago. Used my free pass yesterday had not issues with the picture but its pretty sneaky to splash the offer around without really making it clear that it's for new customer only (just really small print). Surely they want to sell subs to "dormant" customers as well?

Since I'm now an existing customer, I don't see what attraction there is to pay full price whilst basically being in the same boat as non-subscribers (i.e. I haven't paid any money out yet).

Do you have to activate the pass by date stated 13th or can you activate at a ĺater date. Or do you just have to redeem it?

Seems like it's for new customers only!! If not then HOT. Has anyone tried yet?

Anyone still got a working code? Not used NowTv for over a year but might consider this again if there are codes around? Cheers

If any one else has a code spare for this I would be greatly for one thanks

GDawes, you say its only 720p but to get the football in HD on sky causes a serious fortune. The sports hd pack is an extra 6 quid - but you can only get it with the boxset/family package - which last time I checked was 14 quid more than original. So 20 quid extra a month for HD !! Consequently its been SD football for me for a long time and 720p would be a nice upgrade !

The problem I have with with talktalk TV - or at least the last time I tried it - you have to use the talktalk router. I've heard its not very secure and besides I have so many things setup with existing router don't want to change it.

Just got Sky Sports for £.8.50 a month for 18 months on Talk Tallk

Worth adding that Quidco are offering £5 cash back for "new customers purchasing the Entertainment month pass" so even more reason to give this a go.

Okay theres one thing I'm confused about here. The instructions at the top say 'Step 2: Cancel afteraround 2 weeks'.
Surely if you cancel after the 14 day free trial period then you will already be charged £7.99 for the following month? Or should that say cancel before the 14 day free trial ends. Basically when do you cancel to get the offer? before 2 weeks or after 2 weeks?

well i've just cancelled the pass and i wasn't offered £3.49, it was more like £5.49 a month so i still cancelled. doubt i'll be getting any kind of free box offer. oh well.

Can you have two of these boxes assigned to the same account ?

thanks for the reassurance. I dont need it really as had 2 years free with Sky on retention they keep giving me 50 or 100 credit as well as 60% off but there have been times when ive been without service this plugs a soccer weekend till they ring me back with the freebie

I've used the sports day passes a few times; 24 hours after activation it just stops. You get a countdown of how long you've got left but it won't charge anything to a credit card. It only activates when you start to watch so you can enter your code, leave it a few hours, then activate it. Your 24 hours starts from the activation time.

ive got a free one day sports pass on 2 email addresses. thinking of using them weekend after canx sky. what happens after 24 hours does it just charge your credit card 6.99 or does it just stop. anyone know

Of course, that's a big assumption - can the pair of tickets be split?

If not, then you are correct, they are identical deals. There have been deals in the past for half-price tickets that can be bought on their own, and they are very valuable to me.

They are literally not, for an odd-numbered group of people. I'm assuming you have the choice of buying one of the two half price tickets. You must buy both of e BOGOF tickets..

BOGOF for a group of 3 people would need u to buy 4 tickets for the price of 2. Half price tickets would require you to buy 3 tickets for price of 1.5. The half price tickets would cost you 3/4 the price of the BOGOF approach.

maybe it is because people are fed up of convoluted ways to save money. We have got to a stage now that few are willing to pay full price for cars, cinema tickets, restaurants because there are so many "special offers" out there. Come on Now tv and others, make your prices reasonable and you can take out a lot of complexity from your business, and might ever win some loyalty

Maybe cos it's crap.... I got super BB and std tv... never watch the tv side, it's rubbish... won't be renewing unless it's really cheap for the fibre..

I have a 50Mbit/s connection through BT and am getting quality that looks like a half-decent pirated DVD, despite excellent full HD on every other streaming service I've used.Maximum resolution is 720p and you won't usually get that. It's also horrendous quality colour.https://help.nowtv.com/article/what-is-highest-streaming-quality-for-my-device


Dunno if you are still following this?
After a bit of messing about I appear to get better results on my PC Stick when I restrict the number of CPU's/threads that the Cisco DRM and nowTV player processes can use - not entirely sure why, and the improvement could just be coincidental. You can do this manually through Task Manager using the "affinity..." property, but it needs to be done every time you change the stream.

Also, at the risk of labouring a point... headline bandwidth figures like 50Mbit/s only tell a very small (and insignificant) part of the story. They are used to help ISP's boost sales but they tell you nothing about the stable/consistent error-free throughput. You may find that running your line at a lower rate will improve your streaming (though it will also slow your download speed).

Let me use Roads (that you drive on) as a metaphor for Broadband. The number of lanes on the road extend the metaphor and represent Broadband Max Bandwidth; if the motorways with multiple lanes are full of accidents (Broadband errors) blocking/slowing your progress the number of lanes (the bandwidth) really don't matter/help... It's sometimes quicker to take the much smaller "A" roads... unless you get stuck behind a tractor - but this complicates the metaphor!
Unfortunately, accidents on roads (bursts of errors on Broadband caused by interference) are very difficult to predict so you can never be sure that you are going to take the quickest route... I prefer to drive safely and improve my chances of arriving at my destination in one piece (I run my ADSL with large SNR margins/targets - downloads are slower but I get very few errors)!

Hmmm... maybe that's an analogy not a metaphor?
Language is hard.

P.S. I'm not trying to push this service I just want to see people get what they have already paid for (ie stable broadband and 720p resolution).

FYI I recently got this and am seriously disappointed with the quality of the stream. I have a 50Mbit/s connection through BT and am getting quality that looks like a half-decent pirated DVD, despite excellent full HD on every other streaming service I've used.

tl;dr got the windows app working fairly well on a crappy little PC stick … tl;dr got the windows app working fairly well on a crappy little PC stick with atom CPU over WiFi! I've never tried a box.Just been through this myself very recently... currently have an old i3 laptop and a Z3735F PC Stick running the nowTV Player in 720p over wifi with no big issues; the streams do have a bit of judder/jerkiness as though the refresh rates are slightly out - I have tried changing refresh rates but haven't yet bothered playing with the TV's post processing.My stable broadband connection is just slightly slower/less than yours.The first time you try and watch nowTV on a new device it should ask you if you have already downloaded the player... at this point answer so that nowTV will download a player for you. If - like me - you tried to be clever and downloaded the player in advance from the windows store and skipped this download then you will have to clear your cookies or use a different browser before nowTV will offer the download again.I couldn't get nowTV to utilise the player that I downloaded from the windows store - but I didn't try very hard.My PC stick struggles to load the nowTV web pages - I haven't looked at this yet, I just accept that it will be very slow on that device. When the TV app runs on that device the fan is always on... this does not happen with HD streams from other software - so I guess the app and streams (and web pages!) are not as optimised as they could be.On the stick the stream takes a couple seconds longer to buffer up enough data to show in 720p (I suspect the sticks poorer wifi/CPU as the main culprits here)... in the meantime it shows a very low res blocky image. Obviously, the longer it takes to buffer up some data the longer you will be watching this blocky image - could try pausing??.I agree, it is disappointing that there does not seem to be any sort of settings in the player. But it works and has full screen so I guess they think that's good enough?I have only briefly checked the forums (to see what refresh rates I should use) so I don't know what they suggest but if I were having problems I would check: - wifi bandwidth... is the connection good enough for sustained throughput - CPU utilisation... the app seems to tax my little Atom... check what else is going on (Anti Virus maybe? Updates?) - broadband connection... this is a tougher one. People can be quite happy with their broadband and not even notice just how unstable it really is. [rant] If I knew nothing about computers my router would happily connect to my ISP at 10+ Megabits per second and it would be up and down like a wh0res knickers... it does finally get managed down and settle at a lower rate but still with more errors than I am happy with getting bursts of errors that interrupt comms for a good few seconds (long enough to miss your bet if you're playing poker!). All these errors could upset the video stream. These errors wouldn't really be noticeable when just browsing. If you can force (or get your ISP to force) slower communications (increased SNR Margins) or increase the depth of interleaving (improved error handling) on your line it may become more stable (though interleaving will increase latency which may upset any online gamers). I set my own SNR targets when I sync which lowers my bandwidth to around 5Mbps and makes my connection rock solid even through the long periods of interference. This is all stuff I feel should be done for Consumers long before they decide to stream content into their homes - we really shouldn't need to know so much in order to get a stable broadband connection in the 21st century!! [/rant]Any shortcomings on your end will get exposed/exaggerated by more demanding activities... nowTV seems to be way more demanding than some other streaming services (DRM maybe?) - though, tbf, I have not tried any other premium services on the Atom.Anyway, I've gone on too long already... if the price is right then with a little perseverance you can probably get acceptable results (assuming your hardware is up to it).



Thanks for the suggestions!

I'll have a closer look into it, it was just very frustrating at how poorly managed their windows service was. Off hand I can't identify any problems - running on i5, regularly speedcheck at >= 6mb/s (looks stable), nothing else running.

I might try IE with silverlight.

OK let me stress again, the boxes apparently work fine for the most … OK let me stress again, the boxes apparently work fine for the most part. I am talking about getting it to work on a PC. If you don't believe me, check out the shambles of the NOW TV support forum. I am also completely aware that the boxes are normally given out with subscriptions, and are very cheap to purchase on ebay. None the less, I'm surprised that a company this large can't get their act together and provide a reasonable platform for windows streaming. I've never had issues with streaming like this (incl. netflix & amazon and multiple free services on this laptop)FYI I get >5mb/s sufficient for 720p (Sky), but it shouldn't matter with non-live streams anyway. I would expect to be able to choose quality/buffer it. Also, in-browser streaming is only supported on IE with silverlight (which itself is being phased out) and the 'now tv windows app' which they list on there website is no longer available (yet they still link to it). I am trying to use my only option of their NOW TV player.

[rant] If I knew nothing about computers my router would happily connect to my ISP at 10+ Megabits per second and it would be up and down like a wh0res knickers... it does finally get managed down and settle at a lower rate but still with more errors than I am happy with getting bursts of errors that interrupt comms for a good few seconds (long enough to miss your bet if you're playing poker!). All these errors could upset the video stream. These errors wouldn't really be noticeable when just browsing. If you can force (or get your ISP to force) slower communications (increased SNR Margins) or increase the depth of interleaving (improved error handling) on your line it may become more stable (though interleaving will increase latency which may upset any online gamers). I set my own SNR targets when I sync which lowers my bandwidth to around 5Mbps and makes my connection rock solid even through the long periods of interference. This is all stuff I feel should be done for Consumers long before they decide to stream content into their homes - we really shouldn't need to know so much in order to get a stable broadband connection in the 21st century!! [/rant]

Any shortcomings on your end will get exposed/exaggerated by more demanding activities... nowTV seems to be way more demanding than some other streaming services (DRM maybe?) - though, tbf, I have not tried any other premium services on the Atom.

Anyway, I've gone on too long already... if the price is right then with a little perseverance you can probably get acceptable results (assuming your hardware is up to it).

OK let me stress again, the boxes apparently work fine for the most … OK let me stress again, the boxes apparently work fine for the most part. I am talking about getting it to work on a PC. If you don't believe me, check out the shambles of the NOW TV support forum. I am also completely aware that the boxes are normally given out with subscriptions, and are very cheap to purchase on ebay. None the less, I'm surprised that a company this large can't get their act together and provide a reasonable platform for windows streaming. I've never had issues with streaming like this (incl. netflix & amazon and multiple free services on this laptop)FYI I get >5mb/s sufficient for 720p (Sky), but it shouldn't matter with non-live streams anyway. I would expect to be able to choose quality/buffer it. Also, in-browser streaming is only supported on IE with silverlight (which itself is being phased out) and the 'now tv windows app' which they list on there website is no longer available (yet they still link to it). I am trying to use my only option of their NOW TV player.



Netflix and Amazon don't let you choose higher quality and buffer before starting playback, they use adaptive bitrate and stream at what they decide is the best quality that allows you to watch without any buffering. NowTV works the same way so I don't know why you expect them to offer something their rivals don't.

Netflix have only just started an offline download facility for some shows.

If you have a Sky box then you can choose to download content in HD and then start watching when enough of the show has downloaded to watch the entire show without it needing to buffer before the end. It sounds like that is what you want NowTV to provide, but that is only available to Sky customers who are paying a lot more.

I thought Now TV codes were only good for one use. You'd need to find someone that doesn't fancy taking up the offer.

I got 2 months for £1.39 each when I went to cancel

I initially had a 1 month free Movies trial, which I cancelled at the end and was offered the £6.99 deal. I declined and went ahead and cancelled. A couple of days later I received an email offering me the pass for 99p for a month. When that ended I was offered the £3.99 a month for 4 months.
As for Entertainment pass, I got 3 months with Now TV box for under £10.

hot from me - always worth checking the deals being offered before you add your next voucher.

Great deal! I just cancelled my movies & got the 2 months @ £1.99 a month. Cancelled entertainment & got 4 months @ £3.49 a month. Thanks very much for the heads up. Hot from me! X)
