    If you are interested to order Now broadband I wanted you 4ead this feedback please first before further action.
    One star is too much for them. 5he worst and awful customer service ever. We didn't receive our hob we should contact them 6 times they didn't even contact us to say our engineer appointment was cancelled. After about a month now that we are calling them I spoke to their manager (if you can call it manager because I doubt if that is a company) she said we can't update you and you should wait for another company to update us then we will update you.


    I can't believe what I heard after a month and me and my husband both working from home and she said your company that you are working for should support you and give you the tools that you need it is not our problem. I will definitely cancel my order but please don't go through whole this situation that we went.

    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

    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

    literally don't understand how now tv have the cheek to charge you for this. My old dial up Internet was quicker and more consistent than this. Absolute load of **** don't waste your money or time as that's all you'll do waiting for something to download.

    Awful service. Promised callbacks after two cancelations (due to their incorrect filling in of address) never followed through. I was left waiting, paid for delivery twice only to be cancelled, and told the following day that the broadband speed offer was never even available for my area. Ridiculous!

    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

    awful service, no broadband for 3 weeks, having to ring 5+ times for total non answers blaming openreach, was told every time someone would be in touch but nobody ever was, but hey, at least i was told i would be compensated right? wrong, when enquiring further about the compensation i was told i wouldnt be getting any and my account specifically was denied this, absolutely shockking especially with people working from home and having wifi is vital for this to work. and to top it all off theyve charged me 5.68 for calls i didnt make. do not go with this company, absolutel d***heads

    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.

    Signed up on line. The only confirmation was for me to claim for a voucher for now tv.I read the reviews then decided to cancel via chat. The page wouldn't go so far as to be able to send the message.My account details weren't recognised so couldn't log on. Couldn't find an email address finally read the conditions and found the number 03303323050.Cancelled I hope.What a fraught time finding out who to contact why make it so difficult.

    keep away from this crap provider, there is no way of contacting them when you have a problem, I have been flooded and have problems connecting to broadband and I have no phone, the only thing that came into contact with any water was the Open Reach box (another crap firm), can;t speak to anyone here either, on their information page it said contact your service provider and they will inform Openreach, so hack to square can't contact NowTv. it's time Ofcom got a grip on these companies who cannot be contacted by their paying customers.

    Ordered online well in advance of moving as I expected to need an engineers visit. The website told me everything was already connected and I didn't need a visit. On my activation day I plugged everything in and was receiving Internet with no issues.

    Two weeks later I was cut off. I called and they explained to me that actually I did need an engineers visit and they had emailed me asking for me to provide some dates. I gave them some dates but an hour after this I got an email to say my service had been cancelled. I called again and they told me I was too late and the order had to be cancelled, but I couldn't reorder until the phone side of the order was cancelled. It took them another week to do this and I was told it would take at least another two weeks from then to get me setup again.

    They blamed the whole thing on Openreach which to be fair I can understand that a big part of the fault lies with Openreach, however as a customer I don't have any dealing with Openreach and I was totally dependent on NOW broadband to notify me of the issue and that I needed to advise them of some dates I would be available to have it corrected. Somehow they felt that a single easily missed email was sufficient for this.

    Dealing with the customer service centre was difficult. After 5 phone calls I requested to speak to a manager because nobody could explain to me what went wrong. I was promised a call back on 4 occasions and never received it. I eventually received a call about 2 weeks after requesting it.

    I was initially somewhat understanding of the issue and I was going to reorder with them as I simply wanted my Internet restored. However my experience was riddled with failures from NOW broadband and the confidence I had in them was lost.

    I requested a full refund and this was paid.

    I had standard broadband and ordered an upgrade to fibre. The transfer date was postponed at least twice over a week or so, then on the final date I was told I would be transferred to Broadband, Now cut off my existing Broadband and didn't set up my fibre. I called to query and was told there was a fault on my line. However, they weren't sure why they cut off my broadband. Having googled this, it's sharp practice which they use to avoid paying Openreach for 2 open lines -even if they can't fulfil their contract. I've since made numerous calls and have been told the Openreach were instructed on Saturday..it's now Wednesday. Apparently, they may contact me today or tomorrow to tell me that it might take a further 2 or 3 days to get an engineer out. My wife and I work at home and rely on the internet. Nobody at Now will chase Openreach or have any idea what is happening. It's a complete joke and I think fraudulent behaviour.

    Wouldn’t give you one star!
    Have spent the last 2-3 weeks chancing my phone line from you. Joined because you gave us a good offer, nothing but issues since start date with two engineers out
    Your router only has two Ethernet ports so had to purchase a splitter to be able to add my other lines! Then it reduced signal because of the splitter - engineer out said it’s the bad routers!
    Signal no longer reaches My ring doorbell but did with talk talk on same speed!
    My phone line is now on a stop line because your company cannot get it right! Spent hours on the phone day in day out being promised it is now cancelled it is now sorted and given verbal apology but no offer of compensation and guess what! Still no phone line showing for another provider to take over! You are awful! DO NOT BE FOOLED they may offer the best price but ask yourself why! They are desperate for new customers but are poor signal poor quality and poor service! Still haven’t got my refund still haven’t got my phone line back!

    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.

    I signed up for broadband and subsequently cancelled it three days later. They took a £60 activation fee. When I asked how long the refund would take, they said it would take 30 days. I asked them at that point why the are holding onto my monye for that length of time. Refunds via VISA typically take 5 days at most. They said thats how long it takes.

    I waited the 30 days and received nothing. So i called them. They then told me that the refund had not been actioned. I asked them to refund this again. They told me at this point it would take 5 working days. Fast forward 10 days, nothing recieved. called again, same story. The refund hasnt been actioned.

    At this point I have stopped contacting them and have contacted my bank to raise a dispute.

    I am not an unreasonable person, unlike these guys who will ake your money, and keep it for no good reason.

    DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY.

    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!

    Very very poor. 3 days after switchover day and still no landline or broadband. Poor customer service - pleasant staff but long delays getting through and staff unable to do anything (presume business modelled in this way - staff just there as a pretence). Reading reviews not optimistic about getting phone or BB service any way soon. My advice is go somewhere else - do not use Now.

    No contact phone numbers (that work)so no one to contact; so no customer services = they don't really want customers; as seemingly wrong information on their web pages there's no way of clarifying.

    Very bad customer service. False information shared with customers. Changed our instalment day for WiFi twice and cancelled account without notice. Would highly not recommend.

    Where do I start?! Applied online 18th November to move to Now from PlusNet, given a start date of 2nd December during the process. Order failed. Multiple orders subsequently placed, all failed. REPEATEDLY told useless staff issue needed escalating, REPEATEDLY ignored. Ombudsman utter waste of time (industry bias). Finally lost it and emailed CEOs of Now (Sky), BT Openreach, PlusNet etc. Issue resolved by BT Openreach who found an issue between two systems. Still no help from Now other than placing further order. On 11th February Now advised I was entitled to compensation for the delay (114 days from start to end). Bear in mind they didn’t bother to even attempt to resolve the issue, they are now stating that as the start date was not confirmed (it was, albeit during the initial order process and verbally by staff, not by email) I am not entitled to compensation. They subscribe to an ‘automatic compensation’ scheme. Clearly nothing automatic about it, clearly they think it’s acceptable to breach their own policies, clearly a joke of a company. Off to the equally useless Ombudsman again, and the press (having been told by Now that emailing others slows the process which is both ironic and a threat). Their broadband is absolutely nothing to write home about either. Just do yourself a favour, take account of all these poor reviews, they are poor for a reason. Go elsewhere. Honestly. Anywhere but Now. It’s just not worth the stress.

    BY FAR THE WORST PROVIDER at the same address and with the same set up (router, gadgets, tv, console have been at the sam spots for 5 years!).

    I havens seem such poor service on anything. Literally. Ghe only reason i picked nowtv was the 12 months contract. If bt wasnt such a rubbish provider chucking 24 month contracts down peoples throats i wouldnt change but hey...
    Since i joined nowtv, never enjoyed stable internet, their poor router doesnt do the job at all, you cant replace it either because of some router option 61 or some sort of rubbish...as if it s such a magical super internet, everyone is in a queue to hack it...
    Movies are interrupted all the time, router needs reset every day, forget about ps4 or xbox...

    It took me 2 months and I am still in the midst of a long process getting back my refund with them. After purchase, the box cam very quickly but there is no internet connection on the day it suppose to go live. Waited for 5 days, customer service is very poor with a lot lapses in communication. Get different instructions every single day and none of them works out as promised. Cancelled on day 5, and thought that was it but no. a month later and our refund is still not with us, called several times again with different instructions, message and timeline. Asked us to wait another month and we will get a full refund. Mid October, sent an email to charge us for early termination fee, which is more than the broad band we subscribe to. So without using their data once, i was charge the first month and now issued another letter for an early termination fee when we cancelled within the cooling off period. Called again several times, again different messages. Reassured us that is an autogenerated email and don't worry about it. Refund will be done in November. November, not surprise we got charged AGAIN. We are fuming by now and the customer services are just completely unreliable. Called again this morning and hope to get all the money refund in next few days. But this again, might be one of many promises that they can't keep. I just want to cut this relationship with nowtv asap. Wasted a lot of our time and causing significant inconvenience. Took me 2 months to decide to put it here, hope to save you from your time and unnecessary stress.

    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!

    Super slow broadband, when there is any internet connection at all. WiFi only works if you sit within 30cm of the hub! Absolute rubbish, will change provider asap. Other people in the area with different providers seem to have no problem, which tells me all I need to know.

    Waste of time and money - AVOID

    We waited two weeks for them to set up our connection at which point they told us they had cancelled the order but forgot to inform us. They then said they would escalate the matter and try to resolve the issue that had caused them to cancel (an issue with capacity at openreach) they then never called and told us they had never had any intention of trying to resolve it.

    Typing that out it's so bad it almost seems made up but they really were that incompetent.
