Now TV on Plusnet box

Hi,

 

Can you watch Now TV through the Plusnet box ? I am looking to subscribe to sky sports & cinema pass through the Plusnet box.

Re: Now TV on Plusnet box

Is Now TV installed on the box? 

 

I'm asking on behalf of my parents i'm not there so can't see if it is an available option

Yes, NOW TV is pre-installed as an app on the Plusnet issued Youview box.

I've not used NOW TV for some time now, so I can't comment on how good it is via the app itself.

I don't subscribe to Now TV but I do have the YV+ box and the app is there. However, I believe you can only watch the catch up content - no live channels. It is a limitation of using Now TV with You View. That same limitation is not present on the PS3 Now TV app for example.

@tolmie35 - where did you hear that rumour? All I can find is speculative articles from the tail end of 2014

It might have been sky store but there was an email sent to customers last year.

Yes, it was useless to me as I only ever had an Entertainment pass. When I looked originally they were claiming that this would be added one day, but I very much doubt it now.
