WHAT NETWORK CONNECTION DO I NEED TO WATCH NOW?
10. On the Now app
10.1 You need broadband or a 3G mobile network to stream content from NOW. You'll need a fast enough line and an adequate broadband data allowance. To stream via broadband, we recommend a minimum 2.5Mbps connection for streaming in 720p or a minimum connection speed of 12Mbps to stream selected content in 1080p HD if you have NOW Boost. Your streaming rates depend on network load in the home and could be affected by other users using the broadband connection at the same time. If you're using a 3G mobile network, you'll need a connection speed of at least 450Kbps (or higher - depending on what you want to watch and the device you're using).
10.2. Obviously, you'll be responsible for all costs charged by your mobile network and broadband providers and your internet service provider. Remember that streaming audio-visual content can use up a lot of data, so if your broadband package doesn't give you unlimited downloads you need to check that you have an adequate monthly data allowance.
11. On BT TV
11.1 You will need a minimum speed of 2.6Mbps to receive the Video On Demand service and 5.25Mbps for the full TV service. To stream selected content in HD with NOW Boost you will need a minimum speed of 12.5Mbps.
WHICH DEVICES CAN I WATCH NOW ON?
12.1 You will be able to watch NOW channels through your BT TV set-top-box if you have a BT Fibre Broadband product and have taken the Service from BT. To watch Video On Demand content you will need to watch through the NOW app on your BT set-top-box.
DO YOU PROVIDE PIN CONTROLS TO PROTECT AND HELP MANAGE MY ACCOUNT?
13. For all Devices there are various features (like PIN protection) which can help you control your account. Most of these features can be controlled within the service but in some cases you will need to do so using the settings on your device – there's more information on the NOW website.
14. If you watch NOW via the BT YouView Box or NOW app on the Box, BT parental pins will apply.
WHO DO I CONTACT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG?
15. If you are having problems with your NOW on the BT TV platform, you should contact BT on 0800 800 150

Stopping, pausing or re-starting content won’t extend the access period for watching it. Once the relevant access period has expired, the content will no longer be available to you.
