Now TV Remote Not Working

Now TV is a subscription-based TV service based in the United Kingdom that does not require any installation or any satellite dish and works by plugging a device into the back of your TV or by downloading an App. Now TV allows you to stream the best in movies, sports, and acclaimed TV shows and offers both live streaming and video on demand for a monthly subscription price. This is why it is so upsetting to be confronted with a Now TV Remote that is not working, which renders your Now TV subscription basically worthless.  Read on to learn more about what could be causing your Now TV Remote to not be working and what you can do about it.

If your Now TV Remote is not working, try taking out the remote’s batteries. Press down on the power button of the remote for a period of about thirty seconds. Then clean the battery contacts. Wait thirty seconds and then replace the batteries with new ones.

Now TV Remote Keeps Flashing

When your Now TV Remote keeps flashing, you will not be able to change channels or even change and adjust the volume or any of the other functions of the remote. Usually, this problem is caused by some type of obstruction between the remote and the Now TV device. It could also be due to your Now TV Remote not being in full sync with your Now TV Plug-In Device that is connected to your TV.

If your Now TV Remote is not working and its red light is blinking, check your Bluetooth connection and pairing. Make sure that the Now TV Remote is in full synchronization with your Now TV Device that is plugged into your TV or with the Now TV App.  Also, make sure all batteries in the Now TV Remote are fully charged.

In addition, make sure your Now TV Remote is not operating too far away from your Now TV Plugin Device on the back of your TV. Look for anything that might be obstructing the direct pathway from your remote to the TV. Any wireless devices such as speakers or phones that are in the way can also lead to interference with the Now TV Remote’s normal functioning.
