If you contact us, our advisors will ask you about the nature of your complaint. We’ll consider all the points you raise, along with the details we hold in our records, and seek to resolve the problem there and then. If your complaint requires specialist knowledge, we’ll transfer you to an advisor with the right expertise to resolve it. If we’re unable to resolve your complaint while you’re talking to an advisor, we’ll tell you how long we expect a resolution to take, and agree when and how we’ll keep you updated.
If you write to us, we’ll review your complaint fully, taking into account all the points raised in your correspondence and the service details held in our records. We’ll also ensure that your complaint is investigated by the most suitable person in the company to resolve your complaint.
We’ll do all we can to resolve your complaint as soon as possible. If your complaint is urgent (if you’re experiencing a loss of service, for example) we’ll prioritise your complaint.
We aim to respond to your complaint and agree a resolution within 10 days. Some complaints, depending on their nature, could take longer to resolve, especially if they’re technically complex. If we’re unable to agree a resolution for your complaint within 10 days, we’ll get in touch. We’ll keep you informed of progress in a way that best suits you and at a time that’s convenient to you.
We’ll let you know if anything else can be done to resolve your complaint and tell you how long it’s expected to take. We’ll keep you informed of our progress and any changes.
This code of practice does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer and you can still seek independent advice regarding your complaint from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) using the following contact details:

Tel: 01 402 5555 or Fax: 01 402 5501
You have the right to take your complaint to Competition and Consumer Protection Commission if your complaint relates to NOW TV or our complaints handling process, and either:
- we haven’t resolved your complaint to your satisfaction within eight weeks of you first making your complaint to NOW TV, or
- you’ve received a letter from us saying that your complaint has reached "deadlock" with nothing more we can do.
