How to watch NOW TV on a Mac

Want to watch NOW TV on your Mac? No problem. You’ll just need OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) or later to be able to install our NOW TV Player.

You'll need a NOW TV account too, so if you don't have one already, first start a free trial or buy a Pass.

How to install the NOW TV Player

Step 1

To trigger the Player download, you’ll need to choose something to watch. Head over to the NOW TV site, find a show, movie, sporting event or kids’ show, and hit play.

You’ll then be prompted to download the Player.

Download the NOW TV Player

The NOW TV Player will download to wherever you’ve set as your preferred download location (the default on a Mac is the Downloads folder).

Help tip If you accidentally clicked I've already got this but you don't already have the Player installed, don’t worry – you can download the Player here instead.


Step 2

Now find the file and click on it to launch the installer. You should see it open and begin downloading and installing the application automatically.

Next time you watch...

The next time you go to watch something on the NOW TV site, your computer should remember you’ve already installed the NOW TV Player and start playing straight away. If it doesn’t, and you see this screen again, just click I’ve already got this to continue.

Next time you watch, if you see the download screen again click 'I've already got this'.
