My web browser isn't working

My web browser isn't working

Work through the steps below if you’re having trouble viewing websites:

Step 1:

Try going to NOWTV.com and google.co.uk. If you can see these websites, the problem might be with the sites you’re trying to access, rather than your browser.

Step 2:

If you can’t see NOWTV.com or Google, try again using a different browser (eg Internet Explorer or Google Chrome). If you can view the sites on a different browser, the problem might be with the original browser.

Try updating to the latest version of the browser, and then see if you can access the websites above.

Step 3:

Still can’t view either of the sites? Try this quick fix:

  1. Close your web browser.
  2. Switch off your NOW TV Hub at the mains, and then switch it on again.
  3. Re-open your browser.

If you still can't access specific websites, can only see part of your web pages, or can’t open any websites at all, follow the steps below to check your browser settings.

Step 4:
Check your browser settings

If the internet light (the ‘smiley face’ symbol) on your Hub is white, take a look at our step-by-step guide to fixing your broadband problems.

If the internet light on your Hub is flashing, but you can't see any web pages, then you need to check your web browser settings using the steps below.
