    I didn’t know it can be this bad!!! I’ve applied for broadband and TV package and I’ve been told the engineer will come to install on 27 of December!!! The money have been taken from my account before installation with isn’t on the contract but I’ve sed it’s okay as long as they show up! You wish !!! Never showed up never have had a message from them extremele difficult to get to speak with someone! Got my money refunded for tv not yet broadband never get a good explanation why I haven’t received the services promised! Guys only if you’re really really desperate get involved with them !! They’re cheap for a reason! Don’t do it it’s rubbish!!!!

    I thought I had experienced bad customer service before, but then I had to deal with Now TV broadband customer service and realised how good everyone else is compared to them! Honestly the worst I have dealt with and I spoke to them on 4 occasions on one day. Incompetent, apathetic, and not able to do anything to resolve a situation. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

    absolute and utter garbage. I had to dismantle my telephone socket for the connection to be made, fitted it yesterday ,todauY I find that the phone calls are being screened, i.e. press 1 to tallk to the person calling. Called the help centre, they are as bad as SKY to get to talk to someone,they then left me on hold, and then cut me off, phoned again, "we can,t do anything" what a complete and uttershambles, no wonder they are so cheap

    I've had them for two and a half years and it's been the most reliable broadband service I've used. I've had to restart the router six times or so in this period and that's pretty much it. Not straight-forward to find the contact phone number but this is similar with everyone these days.
    I'm sorry that they don't offer service where I'm moving.

    I have had Now Broadband for a 24 month contract. I was paying £23.50. When my contract was coming to an end this month they emailed saying what my options were. One was do nothing and no cost sgainst it but I assumed inflationary increase. Boy was I wrong. My DD went out yesterday and they had the cheek to double it without even notifying me! £46 for mediocre broadband connection.
    I tried to log into my account but it kept showing an error- a logging in error on laptop and a sorry you can’t view or amend your package right now error on my mobile! Suspicious!
    I complained and they admitted the email I received was ‘confusing’ and they have put measures in place to address the wording for future customers - lucky them! No reimbursement for me! I have cancelled and switched of course!
    I had to buy two extenders for the house as their signal is poor so not value for money even at the £23.

    Have been with them a while and I did speak to them about year ago but got sucked into carrying on with them as they could tweak things to improve quality but like many others I get a daily workout going to my tv and rebooting it or walking to my kitchen to reboot router. My contract is up and I am a bit ancient so really find it hard work sourcing new supplier and then following necessary protocols to get everything up and running. I agree with all the criticisms……it s not a supplier that I can recommend.

    Don't fall for the low price of this provider. The internet reliability is really bad. I have been with them for nearly two years (only because I had to choose between Talk-Talk and Now-Tv, as better providers are not available for my flat), and for those two years, my everyday routine is to reboot the router. The connection drops multiple times per day. Gladly I am moving to another area, leaving Now-Tv behind. Won't recommend them unless you have no option.

    When I started there were no problems, but my contract was coming to an end I foolishly gave them the opportunity to retain my custom. Speaking to the advisor they agreed to match the new customer offer.
    Unfortunately they want to charge me more, I have written and spoken to them to get it resolved they are not interested.

    I have tried to leave and retain my number but its company policy to refuse to port a number, so when you leave you loose the number.

    They do not want to give a recordable means to communicate so they can claim nothing was agreed, then again you submit via their web form and nothing happens either.

    My flatmate and I had been waiting for 2 weeks for an engineer to come to sort out our Wifi. The engineer came and from what we thought sorted out our WiFi and we had successful WiFi for 3 days before it was cut out without warning. After spending 2 hours on the phone to NowTV to try and get this sorted all they did was pass the blame onto openreach and tell us we would have to place another order and wait another 2 weeks for an engineer to come out. I then contacted openreach as well as complained online on the openreach website, eventually after another 2 hours to be told (with an explanation as to why) that it was NowTV who didn't complete the final stage of the setup process of our broadband leading to automatic cancellation and I have this confirmation in writing. When phoning NowTV back to tell them this, instead of trying to resolve the problem for us, all they said was that they shouldn't have been allowed to provide us with internet as there was no space on the line, again passing the blame onto openreach. We also had 3 days of successful NowTV broadband before it was cut out so I highly doubt this to be true and it is probably another one of their excuses. I urge anyone, don't be fooled by their cheap prices because you won't even get the internet you pay for, as we still haven't with the total wait time now being a month with a likely further 2 weeks for whatever broadband provider we choose instead. NowTV are a disgrace and I won't be using them again.

    Absolute **** show, there was a 3 week wait for an engineer, he couldnt find us. We tried to rearrange but the day befopre he aws supposed to arrive our order got cancelled. I only found this out by calling their customer service department to check they were coming. I then made a new order which was irritating but the time to set up wasnt too different.

    I call them today to arrange an engineer and my order was cancelled 3 days ago without any notice or information being sent to me.

    If your home or space is remotely hard to reach dont bother with these guys.

    Lived on the isle of dogs next to canary wharf and Now was the only provider and charged a extorniate 20 pounds per month for less than 5 mbps. The connection was at less than 2 mbps and would stop a few times per hour completly. Called Now and had 3 engineers come and do works to no avail. Was given a month free.
    I do not recommend this provider at all. The prices they charge for the quality offered is akin to robbery.

    I have never known anything as bad as NowTV fibre broadband. I have completed the troubleshooting with customer service and it didn't improve anything. The maximum speeds I am recieving are around 14mb but generally much much lower when I am paying for 38mb fibre and it seems to completely cut out constantly making streaming catch up TV or Netflix near impossible.

    It's a lousy company. It's displayed a contact customer service number 03303323050 constant engaged. You can't get through no matter what time of day that you're calling. Last time I was offline for 10days. And I had tried to contact them more than 100 times. Still engaged. Since then it's a hour here. 10-12 hours there. Or sometime a whole weekend with out internet. Is it what you called a good service provider. Thank you Now Broadband now all I really wanted to say is I wasted to terminate my contract with you.

    STAY AWAY!! Worse broadband ever. I have been with Sky and EE before. Never have the experience of every 5 minutes internet cuts out like Now TV. If you want to call for service, you need 2 hrs to wait for someone to pick up.

    NEVER AGAIN. STAY AWAY from this broadband. Buy cheap buy ****.

    I was quite happy with Now Broadband until I tried to cancel. I had to tell them to cancel my membership three separate times (so far) to make them stop charging me. "oh we charged you by mistake" "oh we had system issues the last time you cancelled" unacceptable to try to make money from people who don't pay attention. V disappointed.

    Very disappointed, I was given activation date a week ago! I still haven't got Internet and NOW TV have taken the first payment. They booked an engineer, who never turned up. I called them on the day and apparently they couldn't contact the engineer but promised to get in touch the next day and to rebook am engineer, but I still haven't heard from them. I was meant to have recieved an email. Very disappointed. In this age of technology and working from home, a switchover should be seamless, should it not?

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS
    I have been with nowtv for almost 4 years and never had an issue however, my Internet has stopped working in my bedroom, 10ft away from the router. I've had this problem for a week and have had an engineer out and been on the phone several times regarding this matter. Each time it appears to be fixed then a few hours later, not working again. Today I've called back up as Internet isn't working again to be told there's nothing they can do and that I'm to purchase a booster which may or may not work. The "gentleman" I spoke to raised his voice at me and told me no one else could help me. I had to terminate the call and be put on hold for an additional 35 mins to speak to someone else. AVOID AT ALL COSTS
