Looking at the YouView forum I noticed that Humax retail boxes have full NowTV. I thought I'd have a look at the 372T box and mine has been updated too.
More info can be found here.
One question - Inside the "live TV" feature are some live Skymovie channels - how come I can see them? Does it know I've subscribed to Movie pass? I can play live or from store on either now or next - how fantastic! - These are different films to those in the Cinema pass on demand lists.
Love this so much - thankyou Youview or TalkTalk or NowTv or whoever did this!
Well this is a very positive development!
I wonder where it leaves the Boost multicast channels. There's significant overlap between TalkTalk's Boost offerings and Now TV.
From what I can see, the boosts have the advantage of being:
Now TV may win with:
Anyway, having the option to choose which suits us best has got to be good! 😀
By Movie Pass I'm assuming that you mean a NOW TV Cinema pass rather than the TT movie boost ?
It will do as your account is registered on the box so all "passes" will be available, subject to box compatiblity, remember that there is a 6 device limit on each account.
You can also watch NOW on your phone and tablet if you install the app.
It's also worth shopping around for the passes I am currently using a month Cinema pass £1.45 from an amazon third party seller, CDkeys often have big discounts too as do Currys and Argos.
Is the full NOW TV service available on all Talktalk boxes?
i’ve got a retail TV box and it’s working better than my LGTV app. It supports HD and 5.1 surround sound Wow.
Plus this month now TV is doing a 60% discount sale on movies and entertainment I grabbed it while it’s there.
i’ve got a say I am very impressed.
I would never disagree with you @ferguson but honestly, last week when I had the cinema pass trial for a week I could see movie channels and when I payed a movie I could either watch live or from start on library. Only displayed now and next. That's what got me to raise it earlier in this thread.
I assume that you are talking about from the NOW app NOT the normal EPG.
If you do not have valid active NOW TV passes then it will only give you an idea of what is on offer and should encourage you to buy the relevant pass/passes i.e. Entertainment /Cinema (and I think Kids etc.) It will not give you access to these channels until you have valid active pass or passes and each pass also includes the "live" versions if you select the live options in the app.
