I subscribed to BT TV last week. I took out the VIP package which includes all of NOW TV bundled together in one package, eg Sports, Cinema, Entertainment. However I can only view Sports and Cinema, if I try to watch something which is classed as Entertainment it won't let me watch, comes up asking me to subscribe to Entertainment at a cost of £9.99. Have raised with BT but after four days they are still to come back to me with a solution.
So I'm just wondering if anybody has experienced similar to me and if so what the resolution was?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @gryffe Certainly with the VIP package you should get the linear Now Entertainment channel in both SD and HD enabled to play from the BT TV Box Pro EPG (guide) .
Can I ask if you try the NOW app ( on the BT TV Box Pro or any other convenient device) whether you get the same issue with subscription on NOW entertainment content ?
Thanks for reply, yes I've tried all version of the app - whether that be the TV, android phone, Mac and iPad.
Just to add, when I look at the settings panel on Now TV it only shows me as being subscribed on Cinema and Sport but not Entertainment, which is baffling as I have subscribed to the VIP package that bundles all three together.
Thanks for reply. Somebody from support who is handling all my calls(there have been several lol) is going to contact me tomorrow for an update on whether the team that handles NOW TV calls have contacted me, they were supposed to have been contacting me today but guessing I won't get a call this late in the day.
A bit background - I thought it would be worthwhile posting my issue with NOW TV on this forum as well as having contacted BT by phone. Reason being I had been phoning over several days in the last week or so about issues related to my account and was getting nowhere. Posted details of my problems on here, and it was sorted within a couple of hours.
All sorted. Apparently the Tech team just had to reset something in the system and then after I rebooted the box it meant I had the full VIP package including Entertainment.
Apparently the issue that happened with my VIP package can happen, but is very rare.
