2. Maximum Number of Registered Devices

There is also a limit to the number of devices that you can add to a single Now TV account.

You should note that the limit is a total of four different devices.

Understandably, you might wish to change one or more of these devices, such as when a new device is bought to replace an old one, such as a laptop or tablet.
