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.

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.
