    Worse company I have ever dealt with.

    BELIEVE ME, DON’T EVER CONSIDER THIS COMPANY.

    Finding the customer sevice number when needed is requires an assignment itself. And when you, you get some seriously bored staff that don’t give a toss about your problems with an atritude and rude. They have this sort of tone that gets you and develops into an arguement. That pissed me off and I regretted the moment I signed up. But when it comes down to payments, their systems never shuts down, and their is always people availble to make payments.

    When the net is slow, they don’t let you know. When the net is out, they don’t let yoy know. You are just unvalued.

    ABSOLUTEY HORRIBLE, I WISH YOU SHUT DOWN AND NEVER EXIST.

    First of all, I have read the reviews and without insulting anyone, some people are just never satisfied. I have been with Virgin for years, I mean, it used to be NTL when I first joined. But I got fed up with my bills increasing every year to a point where I was paying over £100 a month. So when I moved house from London to Ipswich I decided to write down all the pros and cons about my Virgin package. For me, it all came down to flexibility. So NowTV, obviously, started to become a contender. Done my research and, because I didn't have to commit myself, I thought I'd give it a go. This was a year ago. I love the fact that I can pick and chose on a monthly basis and that I can actually leave whenever I want to. In this year I have not encountered any problem whatsoever and the reason I am writing this review is this; I became aware today that there's a new hub on the market as I just upgraded my MacBook Pro. As my husband is moving in permanently in 5 weeks time, my main concern was the 2.4ghz band, a problem we never had (only fair to mention this as well) with Virgin. The new hub caters a dual band which would solve this. I called their Customer Service and (besides the fact that the agent I spoke to definitely was British and I didn't have to wait as I got through in seconds) asked about the new Hub. Without any hassle she told me the new Hub would be send out today, free of charge. What a breathe of fresh air as I always had to beg, steal and borrow with Virgin to get their latest Hub. And this all for a price that continues to amaze me. For me these guys deserve every 5 stars I have given them. Top notch.

    Don't even think about NowTV Broadband! Placed an order then got a phone call saying it was cancelled and that I would have to phone up the next day and re-order! WHY? No answer. So, foolishly I did. 2 days later another phone call saying they couldn't do the switch over and that I would have to- unlike any other broadband provider I've had previously. Customer service is a thick Irish accent which I couldn't understand either. Whoever wrote the positive review I suggest is a NowTV employee, has to be. Utter rubbish. I cancelled immediately.

    I saw the negative reviews on this site but decided to go ahead anyway!

    So far, I'm glad I did. The Customer Service team in Belfast answers the phone quickly and is very helpful (a breath of fresh air compared with Virgin Media, my previous supplier).

    Luke, the BT Openreach installer arrived 15 minutes early and got things going, despite it being a horrible cabling job in my building.

    And so far, a week on, I'm getting the 37mb/sec broadband speed advertised, even at peak time, and with no outages. I couldn't be happier and even better, I'm on a 30 day contract so not locked in.

    Of course, it's early days, but I've quite a bit of confidence in Now stepping up if things did go pear-shaped. I think any supplier will have horror stories where things sometimes go wrong, but again, they're so much better than the dreaded Virgin lot when it comes to quality service.

    Overall NOW TVs approach to customer service is we have your money now suffer.
    I should have known better as years ago I had used SKY and after 3 years left them when they displayed the same attitude. NOW TV seemed good idea for our holiday home.. result piss poor after sales service. Once they have you all they want is your money and more money.
    My best advice AVOID

    After being a Sky customer for 10 years I swapped to NowTV when I moved as they were unable to fit a Sky dish, it seemed sensible to switch BB at the same time... how wrong was I.

    In 4 months I have made 10 calls to them all of which resulted in different responses and troubleshooting precedes (one involved me moving furniture and unscrewing sockets) I have had an engineer out twice and I STILL so not get sufficient speed to watch catch-up TV. They have admitted that there is an issue that they can't resolve but are refusing to allow me to terminate my contract early!

    I will keep on trying but wouldn't want anyone to make the same mistake that I have!

    Really unhappy with overall interaction with NowTV. Similar to client below, have been waiting until mid-November for NOWTV to activate broadband. First of all the box got lost and not delivered and then they refused to send another box out. Finally they sent another box out and then the broadband did not go live as they promised. Definitely doesn't live to the name of "NOW,", maybe they should call it "DELAY TV." In addition, their complaints procedure is appalling, no one will formally respond to your complaints - only the agent on the other end of the phone.

    If it was possible to leave 0 stars I would. I have been waiting since November 20th to have the broadband installed at my property. It is now January the 3rd.

    I have had appointments booked and then pushed back 4 times

    Now TV will say they will call you, but will NOT
    Now TV will not compensate you for the negative experience
    Now TV never go the extra mile for a customer
    Now TV will provide a 3mbps service and charge you full price for it
    Now TV will bill you incorrectly so you have to ring & adjust it every month

    AVOID at all costs

    Just switched to NOW TV and switch over day came and went, after speaking to customer service they told me the phone had moved across and they were still working on the fiber. phoned again today and they now say there is a problem that they are not sure what it is and it is OpenReach that are causing it, and they will get back to me in 72 hours to give me an update. This si astounding that it takes 72 hours to get an update, with working from home i need internet to do my job and so far NOW TV has let me down, if they get nothing back to me in 72 hours (22 Dec) i expect i will be without internet for christmas holidays, if this is the case i will be cancelling and moving to someone else.
