NowTV Channels in EPG Unavailable

Go to solution

I have the 'Big Entertainment'  package from BT but every time I select one of the channels in the BT TV EPG it tells me I need to upgrade my subscription to view this channel.  My subscription is clearly working as I can view the channels via the NowTV app on the BT TV box.

So far I have tried resetting the box to factory defaults (twice), updated the software and apps and done a soft reset on the box none of which has made the slightest difference.  It  is very frustrating to pay for a service and not be able to use it.

I've spoken to BT and NowTV and neither have been able to fix this.

Any thoughts on where next?

Hi @tonyhog 

Out of interest, are any of the BT channels working rather than the NOW TV ones?

For example, BT Sport SD?

Ok, so you tune to a NOW TV channel, you see a message that says press OK for more info or press OK to set the channel up.

You then get a message and an error code such as BTP-****, what is that please?

Hi Darren - no error message just an endless loop of the same three screens.

Screen 1Screen 1Screen 2Screen 2Screen 3Screen 3

When I hit OK on Screen 3 I go back to Screen 1 and that's as far as it goes and we go round the same loop
