I am just wondering how many people here use NOW tv the pay as you go TV 'broadcaster'.

The Now TV app allows the user to see programs from the likes of Sky Atlantic and other Sky channels which means I can can watch tv shows like Greys Anatomy and The Walking Dead without committing to a Sky or Virgin Media contract.

I was in pain and having a bad day recently and being able to veg out and watch some programs I like between sleeping made my life feel less horrible.

Do any of you use Now TV and what do you watch?
I guess this thread could also be used by people who are watching the same Sky etc tv programs too  :-)

Thank you Auntie  >biggrin<

Oscar is growing up to be be strong and athletic, my only worry is he has not reached an age where I can think he is old enough to have road and people sense. I will be so glad when he has had his first then second birthdays.

Gus,
It looks like you will be entitled to a payment of the backdated money. I think the DWP are supposed to get in touch with claimants and so you could just wait and see. I personally cant remember anyone posting about having got in touch with the DWP about their claim and have it triggering a reassessment. Whether you phone DWP is going to depend on how stressed you feel about waiting to see if you get a payment as opposed to the stress of worrying if you triggered a reassessment.

The DWP has said that they are working to identify and repay people affected and that some payments have already started. They said that everyone who could be affected will be contacted directly by the department.

On a more positive note if the backdated payment takes people over the Income Based ESA savings limit of 6000 claimants are given a year to spend money to bring their saving down to below that limit.

Of course getting backdated money now is not going to properly compensate claimants who ended up in greater poverty because of the mistake made by the DWP. I have read posts where people have talked about being fined for incorrectly claiming Free Prescriptions when in fact they we actually entitled to free Prescriptions because they should have been getting some Income Based ESA,  >steam<

If I remember correctly I was moved from IB to ESA SG 2010. I contacted the DWP at least three times and told them my award was incorrect and I was entitled to a income based top up. Each time I called I was told I was wrong. Early 2013 I requested an ESA3 form completed it and duly returned it.

The DWP awarded me a top up which I should have got when I was moved across. I know I am entitled to back dated money because my situation when awarded the top up was exactly the same in 2010. Like many other people I am dubious whether to contact the DWP and trigger an assessment.

I missed the crucial word toys in the above post there Tony and was shocked and expected a barage of people regailing how much their cats are worth to them but it's okay, I read it twice. My glasses are on order and should be ready this week!

My cats only liked small toys containing catnip aka weed for felines.
