  3. Type %programdata% then select OK.
  4. Open the Microsoft folder.
  5. Open the PlayReady and/or PlayReadySilverlight folder.
  6. Right click on mspr.hds and select Delete.
  7. Finally, close and reopen your browser and try to play NOW TV again.

If the PlayReady and/or PlayReadySilverlight folder is missing, you either do not have administrative privileges or your Silverlight installation has become corrupt.

If the above steps didn’t fix it

It could be an issue with updating essential components from Microsoft, or a general connectivity issue with their server. You can fix this by checking that your antivirus, firewall and internet security products are up to date and running correctly.

If you're on Windows, and you're using IE, you could also try uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight. (You won't be able to do this if you're using Firefox, Chrome or Edge browsers – you'll need to watch with the NOW TV Player instead).
