    I know the deals sound tempting but please avoid avoid avoid! £2 extra a month with anyone else is truly worth it:

    The engineer came around to install my phone line and said I was meant to have WiFi the same evening - 30 days later I still had no internet.

    I had to ring customer services once a week to get an update, every time they just complained about OpenReach being the problem and that they could do nothing to help. Each time I was promised someone would call me back with an update - I received nothing but crickets.

    Every two days NowTV would instead text me, stating I would get an update in another two days - same text, never an update. This just kept rolling on without zero indication that the problem would ever be fixed.

    I cancelled my contract after a month of no action on this issue but I didn't receive confirmation until two weeks later that my account has been closed..!

    I quickly signed up with TalkTalk and in less than two weeks TT has managed to send an OpenReach engineer to identify the problem and now BT is coming to fix my line this week. That easy huh?

    NowTV said I could potentially qualify for compensation - of course, any of my requests about this have been ignored :)

    NowTV, stick to video streaming please, you clearly don't know how to offer decent broadband service.

    I really regret having bought NOW TV Broadband. As we're currently working from home due to the virus, the internet is the one thing we desperately need working and for the last few months its given us nothing but grief. It's so slow that we can't even stream movies so I feel like I'm wasting money on tv subscriptions. I spoke to NOW TV over the phone and they mentioned there was a problem with the box so sent us a new one (customer service was actually quite good and box arrived promptly). But the second it arrived we had exactly the same problem. I originally chose NOW TV because I'd only have to pay £18 a month but its just not worth the money or hassle. I'd be happier paying more with another provider as long as it means we have a reliable internet connection. Please stay away from NOW TV Broadband, I wish I'd read the reviews before buying!

    Now Broadband are the worst company I have ever dealt with. Continuous lies and false promises – blaming any error on Open Reach but not offering more explanation. Circling back on errors that I had known were fixed. I spent a month trying to get online, in the end went for BT who got me up and running immediately. Now Broadband customer services were extremely patronising and unhelpful. Their answer is literally, we will let you know in two weeks when there is an update... not if you will go live... if there is an update. Just the worst experience. Avoid at all costs!

    Ordered their broadband and phone service several weeks ago and given a date for telephone and broadband to go live. Had already cancelled my previous internet provider 4 weeks earlier. On the day my services were due to go live - nothing. No broadband and no phone line. As I had not received any communications from them informing me of any problems with the installation date, I was told that there was a problem with Openreach and that I would not be getting my phone and broadband service and that I had to ring their Sales team and place a new order. I was left with no phone and internet service for several weeks and had to go back and re-subscribe with my previous internet service provider. Don't waste your time with this company's very poor service. They are unprofessional, unreliable, poor communicators, and very much 'second rate' They also have not returned the £5 router fee that I paid them in advance = maladministration.

    I have NOW TV wifi installed. Which necessitates a landline. They said they would send an engineer, but hey never did and when I called, I was told they had already hooked it up. Not! They then sent out a BT engineer a week later and got it working.

    I got my statement and there were about 30 calls made to Angola. The date of the calls happened between the time of the first installation date (when the line wasn't working) and the second installation date (when the line was sorted correctly).

    We obviously wanted the call charges taken off and NOW TV escalated to their manager and came back w an offer to take £10 off the bill! Why in the world should I pay for calls that were made by someone else when the line was not functioning.

    All of this took literally hours of calling NOW TV, waiting for one person after another and that's their resolution?

    Received box early September, due to be live and working Mid September.

    Now pushing mid December, was supposed to have 2 engineers visit the apartment on separate occasions (none of which showed up) and still have no internet.

    Waste of time.

    Very happy with customer service and ease of speaking to someone. Had an email about contract coming up for renewal and a new offer (same price as before). Had to go through a few 'press this number' things when I called but then got to speak to someone right away with no delays. As it was too early in the morning for the team who do new contracts they organised a call back 20 minutes later and switched me onto a new contract in minutes. Efficient and helpful.

    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.

    Excellent broadband service. Price is very competitive. The offer without minimum contract saved our life. I usually don't post reviews but NowTV Broadband was a very good reliable service.

    Literally awful.

    My order was cancelled twice and I was simply sent texts on both occasions that I had to ring customer service. Expect to wait nearly an hour to speak to someone. Once you do they push back the date for another two weeks and can't even give you a reason as to why. Honestly the worst company let alone internet provider I have had the experience of dealing with.

    Perhaps the silver lining is that they showed how terrible they were before I was locked in for twelve months, but I would do everything to avoid this company.

    I was worried about going with Now given all the people whinging on this site! Initially wanted to go with virgin but can't access them at the new flat, everywhere else was minimal 18 month contract. Bit the bullet and went with Now as could get a 12 month contract- have had no issues. Simple set up, fast broadband, arrived early and activated on the day it said it would. Would recommend.

    I signed up NOW TV Broadband for £18 pm with 6months entertainment pass, but they took my payment card I asked them I don’t want to put in auto renew so why you holding my card details they didn’t remove my card detail
    Then I had a look at this page as disastrous experiences with them so I decided to cancel , I called them but they never pickup the phone even after 55 mins so I hanged up I speak to their chat ppl they didn’t responded , so finally I had to contact my previous supplier and stop being taking me away by this ppl and they immediately stopped since I was under cooling off period
    Now tv had to cancel
    I’m happy I’m not with this NOW and never in future

    Can’t get signal in next room 3 metres away.
    Signal sometimes goes slow/ buffers, in same room as router. This is fibre broadband.
    Customer service keep repeating it must be the ‘environment’! won’t accept it is the type of router. Even though I have explained over and over again, I have NEVER had this problem with other broadband services.
    Totally dissatisfied

    NOW TV are the best ISP I have been with in the UK ever, period. I've tried several ISPs over many years, all with ADSL, some were better than others with Plusnet being the worst after they were bought by BT and the customer service plummeted.

    My lower ratings for Now TV reliability and speed have nothing to do with Now TV. Speed and reliability are the responsibility of BT OpenReach who own and operate all ADSL lines in the UK.

    As no ISPs own any ADSL lines the only thing you are buying is customer service and NOW TV are the best I've experienced. If you can get cable in your area and bypass OpenReach all together that will give you the highest reliability of all.

    Things that have gone wrong:

    1. NowTV misdelivered my router, by spelling my name wrong.
    2. Openreach engineer could not connect our house to the fibre cabinet on the first visit.
    3.Open reach engineer did not escalate the issue to NowTV. Instead job was falsely marked as 'complete'.
    4. Upon our followup with NowTV, they realise the job is not complete and aim to schedule an engineer within 3-5 days.
    5. There has been no attempt to address the issue of the late connection or the false updates.

    Where possible, go with a better supplier. My prior one is hyperoptic, and their service was fabulous.

    ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TOUCH THIS COMPANY WITH A BARGE POLE. Absolutely disgusting service. Had someone come out to install, they couldn't install, apparently lied to their company and nowTV wouldn't believe me that he couldn't install due to problems with the building and made me book a second day off to have another person come and install, just for them to tell me the same thing. 2 and a half months later I am STILL having to chase them for their apparent 'automatic compensation' for any delay. I have been told the wrong date 3 times now and I am at my wits end chasing these guys. Absolutely appalling. Not worth the hassle one bit. Will rip you off and take your money.

    Literally can not play a single online game without disconnecting. Can not believe they charge people for this service. Asked for help to improve the WiFi got no help whatsoever and now I am say here having scrape pennies together to pay the contract off. Would rather **** in my own hands and clap before giving this company a second chance.

    Used this website when looking for a new supplier and the reviews almost stopped me from going with NowTV - would really urge everyone to take these with a massive pinch of salt as people typically only leave reviews when they are upset! My experience so far (around 3 months) has been absolutely fine - customer service has been quick and helpful, the speed could be better but is absolutely sufficient for daily use even with loading videos/ movies/ streams!

    Worst customer service experience ever!
    took over 30min to speak with someone first, we needed a broadband, so we got it ordered, until 3 weeks later they said it will be postponed again for 3 weeks. so we should have waited almost 2 months for broadband connection! then we wanted to cancel the order and they were supposed to email the confirmation, didn't hear from them, so called again and they said it will take min 72 hours to do anything, so still waiting for our cancellation confirmation. no way to email them, only by chat and phone, you need to wait at least 30 min to speak with someone who will escalate you anyway to a different department.
    Useless!

    Had a good start with fast delivery and fast set up. Then it all went down. Very slow internet to a point I couldn't get to the website for help. On the phone, they tell you everything is fine and they lie on the delivery speed. After many complain, they came up with the excuse that they deliver broadband to the socket, the rest is not their business .... yes it is as it is their box ! Don't bother!

    I always go for the best package available in my area and unfortunatley, my outdated street only had now as the best option. I was mis-sold their broadband package and when the engineer turns up to install my broadband he says it cannot be activated until another openreach engineer comes to service my street cabinet. No date given, complete ambiguity, I decided to cancel a few days later and go with someone else as I knew that this issue could go on indefinitely. Skip the hassle and just pay extra for a smaller, independent firm (if you can afford it). It saves you so much time and hassle in the long run.

    Ultimately I've had to wait anorhy two weeks until the new company could install my broadband and I've been without internet for a month in total because of Now's incredibly poor service

    Broadband speed is absolutely abysmal. The connection drops constantly and makes it almost impossible for two people to work from home at the same time, which is not ideal at the moment.

    OMG....Do not waste your time with these cowboys. Waited over 1 month for connection, then they cancelled order due to a technical error. More like a thick member of their team from Northern Ireland who refused to give their name or team due to data protection. This was not a data protection issue, just rudeness and thickness from the thick female. Believe me these cowboys won't be in the broadband business for much longer. They are rubbish, even Virgin are better, are they are really bad !. Eventually they terminated the call because they had no where else to go......YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    Shocking company. Would not recommend. Waiting weeks for broadband and then it was cancelled, no explaination, can’t tell us why. Have to replace order and wait another two weeks. Told multiple times we’d be called to be updated, never was contacted by them. Had to wait on hold for over an hour every time. Shocking

    Non existent customer service as they expect you to jump through hoops before you can possibly if you are lucky speak to anyone!

    They are absolutely atrocious so recommend avoid unless you are happy to have slow broadband and to spend ages trying to get to speak to an actual person to resolve any issues that might arise as web chat and emails are completely ignored as are the ratings they ask you to give when you have attempted but failed to contact them!

    Seeing all the negative reviews almost put me off getting Now Broadband but my experience has been more positive. My circumstances meant that I was only interested in a non-contract agreement, i.e. leave whenever I wanted without exit fees. "Now" were one of the very few providers in my area that offered broadband without tying you down to 12/24 months so this was a great plus for me. The speed is not the best but I knew that before I signed up as they provide accurate estimated speeds, however the speed is fine for my uses.

    The price is reasonable too for £18 I get broadband, line rental and unlimited local and mobile calls AND can cancel whenever I want with no costs being incurred.
    Now also arranged for BT to connect my line to the phone network which was done quickly and the engineer came exactly when expected, so the setup was trouble-free. Getting the modem-router setup was simple too.

    The biggest complaint I have is customer service since it's so difficult to connect to an advisor. On 3 or 4 occasions when I called, the call just disconnected. On the single occasion I did manage to get through, the advisor was helpful and was able to setup my account promptly.

    I'm sure everyone that has complained about Now have legitimate qualms, but my experience has been mostly good and I have got everything I needed from them for a good price - something no other provider was able to offer.

    Absolutely ridiculous service and promises were nt kept! Ordered December, and received notification to say that connection would go live on the 4th January. The hub arrives, and not connected on the 4th. Call customer services, and get told there is a delay and would take 48 hours.. call them every for the next four says.. get told 'it is with our back office team'. There is no escalation or priorisation, and just called them again.. it is now Friday, get told 'it might be next week now but we cannot promise this'. Not willing to wait 2 weeks or 3rd week. Worst thing is NowTv do not update the customer, I have called them every day for an update, absolutely awful experience. Ridiculous!!! I have now cancelled the order and service! Cannot be trusted!

    Have been with NOW broadband for over a year now and haven’t had any problems at all. Decent speed, decent price and reliable. Would recommend.

    Delays in going live of more than 1week in addition to the"usual"14days. Kept blaming BT lines as in all other reviews.BT and Nowbtroadband needs to pull their act together.This 14days+longer days is what makes UK the laughing stock of the world

    Creeps along at the speed of sludge when connected, which it very often isn't

    absolutley shocking broadband. I have one the best package available with a "promised" 63 mbps. When I try to play on my ps4 or stream videos I am at around 800 kbps which is 1990 esque Internet speeds. Would not recommend for anyone who wants to do a simple Google search. Save yourselves

    I can't fault NOW TV Broadband. After reading some of the other reviews and getting my date delayed by 1 week with an OpenReach issue, it turns out that it actually was an OpenReach issue. I spoe to NOW a couple of times, very quick to answer once you go through the Option 3, Option 1 answer message. Very polite staff, apologetic and contacted me to say they had heard from OpenReach and confirmed the switch on date. OpenReach arrived well in time, connected to the OpenReach socket and didn't have much of a signal, so the engineer put a new socket in within 2 minutes and I instantly got great coverage in all rooms with no lag whatsoever. My son started downloading his PlayStation 4 updates and games, we went out for an hour and came back and all was downloaded. Can't fault them to be honest, right from the start they've been consistently extremely polite and very helpful. I've got the 38Mb/s fibre broadband with landline and for £23 per month on a 12 month contract, they are cheaper by far than any other. 5 stars all round from me.

    Hi there,

    I signed up for the Now TV broadband package to go activate on Monday 30th March. Unfortunately it didnt go active. So I called to see as to why.

    Tuesday 31st I was informed by a gentleman that my account querey will be pushed into 'teir 2' and I would be informed on Thursday 2nd April personally by himself.
    I then called again on Tuesday to gain more information about what teir 2 actually is and also in the hope we may have received an update already. Unfortunately no update but a helpful amount of information.
    I waited patiently till Thursday 2nd April as discussed. I received no phone call so called up myself and spoke to someone else who informed me that he will personally contact me on Sunday 5th to provide me an update.
    Again, I waited patiently until Sunday. After receiving no form of contact by 4pm, I once again called myself. I spoke to a woman who informed me that we're unlikely to hear anything today due to a lot of openreach' branches being closed on Sunday, not to worry thats understandable. I was then infromed it will most likely be Monday 6th April and if theres any update then the relevent team will inform me.
    Monday 6th I called again. I called with limited hope, expecting to hear the same old "im sorry" however upon speaking to the gentleman I was informed that they're looking to activate my wifi on 15th April. It also seemed like the gentleman was unsure as to why I havent been told about the date already, almost as if to say, the lady on Sunday could've informed me of that date.
    I left the phone call thinking 'Great!' Not becuase I've been given a date but because someone has finally given me some information.
    To be honest, I was not best pleased with the date given. I've paitently waited for a week to be told you've got to sit staring at a wall for another 10 days. As I said to the gentleman, this is a bit of a piss take from my perspective. I was recommended to Now TV from a friend who complimented the set-up speed, communication skills and wifi speed. All have been way below par!
    Wednesday 15th rolled around, I called first thing to confirm its going live. I was informed that the teir 2 team still have intentions of going live today. As they close at 8pm I decided to call at 7:30 pm and I spoke to another gentleman. The gentleman was amazing! He was honest and considerate of the situation. He apologized on behalf of the complaints team and the teir 2 team. Even though he had nothing to do with either team he was full of useful information. He advised its unlikey to go live on 15th and to sign up for virgin media, then depending on which company can make my wifi go live first to then cancel the other. So I did. He informed me for the first time that all openreach comms lines have been closed since 20th. Why was i not told all this on 31st? I dont know.

    From my perspective, the wifi not going active is not specifically anyone's fault. I understand that given the times that we're in, everyone is understaffed and you have to prioritize others. However... this is completely unacceptable, no comms from Now TV, all from me. Over 300 minutes of my time chasing for information.
    Between 30th and 6th I have used all the data on my 4G plan, as had my flat mate. My flat mate was meant to be working from home since Tuesday 31st. As he has been unable to, he has been forced to take some holidays and some unpaid leave. After telling Now TV about that, they decided to do sweet nothing about it. Following all this i dont believe that teir 2 is actually a team but uf they are, they need to pick up the phone and be clear with the customer to stop them getting irate.

    I'd like to say, all the staff i have spoken to have been extremely polite and friendly. And after each phone call I clarified that I was not having a go at the individual I was just venting at them. The last gentleman I spoke last actually thanked me for being polite to the staff even though i was angry.

    Many Thanks
    Harry Moss

    I am super happy with now tv. I was worried about performance when i picked broadband company, I picked now tv because they had a rolling contract for fiber.

    - customer support is the best i ever experienced. Royal mail lost my router, they shipped me a new one the same day as I called. I called a second time and asked for about the router configurations and they deducted 5£ from my bill, I didn't even ask for it.

    - speed is what they promised. I have the 38 mbps package and speeed test say 36.2 mbps.

    I haven't even tried the channels yet. +I use my own router btw, they don't support it, but if you google around you'll find info of how to do it)

    Best provider I ever had.

    Promised me min 32mbs out of 36mbs. In the initial 14 days i have eceived 35-36mbs. After that the nightmare started. I am now getting 10mbs in average with bad periods of less than 5mbs. All they say is they can't do anything about it.
