Its been ready for quite some time apparently, but Sky have chosen not to release it yet. Bearing in mind it is a Sky app.
I agree, this way Sky can entice more to its Sky sports if English clubs are thriving in Europe.
And now 'sort of' confirmed. BT announced it will launch NowTV before the end of Q4. So that means end of March release date (or close ish lol).
Where was this confirmed
Sorry yes just seen this is it to be app based they way now tv hassky Cinema at the minute??
They haven't given proper detail out yet but there has been some information and some wrong access given that lets people pretty much know how it will work.
There will be an app like there is now but it will be more like the interface you get on the app on the other devices giving the full suite of channels but (for BTTV customers) there will also be all the channels in the EPG which will allow recording of the channels BUT to get the EPG variants you have to purchase your access direct through BT (therefore probably not the discount chances that most people with NowTV take advantage of). The other sticking point is a lot of SKY's entertainment channels are already covered by BT's extra channels so not sure if anything will change there or if you will just get both duplicate channels.
Please be aware this information has been put together by 1) some people were mistakenly given access to the full app for about half a day and some videos were done (now removed) and 2) putting together the information in BT's tariff information that quotes about NowTV. Therefore obviously things could change but it all seems to make sense
Example taken from the BT terms and conditions :-
12. Terms for NOW TV on the service with BT billing
(e) If you have any NOW TV subscriptions that we do not bill you for (for example, content taken via another third party provider that is not BT or NOW TV), you cannot watch that content through your set-top-box electronic programme guide. Instead, you will need to login to the NOW TV app on the set-top-box or another device.
(f) If you have a discount on a NOW TV subscription, you can’t move that across to us.
(g) If you have a NOW TV subscription that you have paid for upfront, you can watch that content on BT TV. Once that NOW TV subscription has expired, you will automatically move to our pricing as set out in our Tariff Guide.
Hmmm, dont think I've ever continually paid full asking price for a now pass, they always throw in a discount if you attempt to leave. I'm thinking being tied to BT and being able to record Now tv might be an expense too far.
