Hi All,

Found a fix. Just go to 9now.com.au/activate on your computer and enter the code that comes on in telstra tv when you try to watch program, I put it in as it shows ie in upper case, and all fixed. I think you only have to activate once as checked couple of other programs and all good.

 

Cheers

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Hi All,

 

I hopped onto our test Telstra TV and I also had difficulties with registering. The 9Now activate website showed that the registration was successful but the Telstra TV kept prompting to complete the registration.

 

I found that after creating a 9Now account, I needed to go into my email account where there was an email from 9Now to complete the verification of the email account and then log in.

 

I then went back to the TV, refreshed to get a new Activation code and once I entered this into https://9now.com.au/activate. I refreshed the Telstra TV and it was then successful.

 

I hope this helps.

 

- Shelly

Mine is no longer working.  When is Telstra going to put something out on how to fix this? Is it channel 9 or Telstra responsible?

Mine is not working and when contacting Telstra to they say "ooh must be nine now as it would not be us". If it runs through them then someone fix it and not just pass the buck.

Hi everyone, think I have found a fix. Worked for mine anyway.

 

Go to 9now home screen then press * on your remote and it will give you the option to login that way. Still need to go to website and put in activation code but works doing it that way. 

 Good luck!!!  😊😊

Hi,

 

I think 9now is now requiring users to sign up and register for a 9now account to use the app. Just visit 9now.com.au/activate and it will prompt you to Log-in if you have an existing 9now account if not you can register by clicking "Create Profile" located below the Log-in button. Complete the registration and once done it will automatically give you the page where in you can type the code provided by the 9now app. If not, you can just retype 9now.com.au/activate again on the address bar and it will ask for the code. Once you have completed this 9now will automatically work on the Telstra TV.

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Already registered and believe me have tried the whole activation process more times today than I care to count and it STILL refuses to grant me access!
Hoping someone from 9Now will respond to my query about this asap. If anyone has any other ideas please share 😊

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

According to the info from my Telstra TV box the 9Now app is Version 2.2, 28 October 2016, Developer TELSTRA!

 

So can't understand why Tesltra should be passing the buck.

 

Anyone claiming to have successfully entered the 6 digit code please explain in detail the steps you took how you did it - when I go to 9now.com.au/activate it asks me to login or register for a regular 9now account - nothing related to Telstra TV as far as I can see.

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Hi ukmalb,

 

You will need to register a 9Now account in order to access this app on the Telstra TV, that same as is required when using the 9Now app on a tablet, smart phone or computer.

 

Once you complete the registration you will need to check your mailbox for an email from 9Now. Once you have used the verification link, log into 9Now is your logon details. You will then need to go to https://9now.com.au/activate and enter in a new code from the Telstra TV. 

 

Once accepted, refresh and you should now be able to view these programs.

On your computer go to 9now.com.au/activate

register your details - name, postcode, DOB and set a password

when propmted enter activation code for the Telstra TV 9now 6-digit code

activation takes a few seconds

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Ok I've managed to get in....here's what I did:
After creating new account with 9Now and verifying email, went back to tv, clicked the 9Now app, and then clicked on the "option" button * (on the Telstra tv remote)
From here I scrolled down to "log in" got the activation code and followed the usual prompts. Took a couple of times but it worked!

Now we have the 9now app working ok it would be great if during the ad breaks we had only one sequence of ads instead of multiple repetitions of the same sequence or of  multiple repetitions of an ad fragment.

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

I just went around in circles too. But went back to my email to verify. With the email link "verify email" it will take to your profile, you need to hit "Update Profile" and it will refresh. Then the activation code will work!!! Good Luck

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Anyone having issues, use www.9now.com.au/activate, NOT  9now.com.au/activate or https://9now.com.au/activate

 

Leave the activation code on the screen of Telstra TV and within a minute or two of activating the code on a PC it will automatically activate and 9now will return to the home screen.

 

Why do they call this Telstra TV, when it isn't a TV, Telstra Streaming would be a better name for the product. The name is more akin to calling a DVD or bluray player a TV.

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

Just solved this.  Log in to 9now site in your computer.  If you are not registered you will need to do this.  Once you are logged in you will be asked to enter the code shown on your TV.  This is case sensitive. You will then be taken to your program.

Re: Telstra TV and 9NOW no longer working

I have gone to 9now.com.au/activate   but absolutely no joy at all could not find anywhere to put the code in they gave me on the screen tried various different ways no joy, to be honest I feel very frustrated with whole thing.  I dont know why they just couldn't have left it how it was, one minute it's there next everytings changed and obviously not for the better going by other letters I've read.
