    It's still a work in progress and shouldn't have been up there yet. Someone's going to get an ear bashing 😁

    NowTV in HD is going to cost extra, so I expect that the App on YouView will be able to do HD, but will only be in 720p/Stereo, unless you pony up for the HD Boost, which will give you HD/5.1

    No 4K though, unless you count the cr*ppy upscaling the T4000 does.

    Maybe it’ll be back again today 😁

    From the brief glimpse I saw yesterday the UI is a huge improvement.

    Right so there is another payment tier for HD now?
  • redchizredchiz Member, Super User Posts: 5,099 ✭✭✭
    HD has always attracted a premium payment on BT has it not?
  • JoeJoe Member, Super User Posts: 2,032 ✭✭✭
    Well thats a new one. Just launched by the look of it. Not sure about the extra cost when Netflix and Amazon provide 1080p and 5.1 as standard? But there you are:

    So did anybody get to use it in anger yesterday before it was removed. Was everything 720p stereo. Will be interesting to know if the HD boost pass will work with the YouView app when it is finally released.
  • Ken Hill1Ken Hill1 Member Posts: 136 ✭✭
    Yes I think so I got a smart TV Samsung and I went into the app on the TV and it's in HD so I think that we will get it when the full NOW TV launchers on YouView.
  • JoeJoe Member, Super User Posts: 2,032 ✭✭✭
    Yeah I would guess so too. They’ve obviously made a big effort with the UI redesign. Wouldn’t make sense for them not to offer the option of the HD boost (1080p, 5.1 surround). 

    Going on their literature it seems that 720p is the standard if you don’t want to buy the HD boost. Imagine it will be the same when the new full strength Nowtv launches on Youview.

    I Hope it comes soon. It must be ready ? Cos they launched yesterday and then removed ☹️

    well thay did say we get it by the end for this year .
  • croftcroft Member Posts: 60
    Found this on RXTV
    Last week, the full set of Sky Sports channels briefly appeared on the BT YouView version of the Now TV app, before promptly vanishing, indicating testing is in advanced stages ahead of a formal announcement from BT.

    Shouldn't you be moaning on the NOW TV and/or BT forums?
  • croftcroft Member Posts: 60
    My apologies yes I should I’m sorry....
  • VisionmanVisionman Member, Super User Posts: 9,856 ✭✭✭
    This won't get high user numbers on YouView you know, as its already used on a countless number of other devices and by YouView users to boot. 

    Its there, its ready to go, and all they need to do is release it.
