The Bravo Now App is a pretty decent application that allows you to watch full episodes of your favorite series, on-demand movies and more. The Bravo Now app is a part of the Bravo TV subscription. So if you are paying for the Bravo TV services, you will not necessarily have to pay for any other streaming services. 

Bravo Now is a useful streaming app, as you can have it on various devices. It does come with a few bugs though. These errors or bugs may cause your application to stop working. 

We know just how annoying this can be, especially if you are in the middle of a suspense-filled episode of your favourite crime drama; or if the hero is about to kiss the heroine, and poof no TV. 

We have listed a few of the more common problems that may occur, and how to fix them; so that your frustration is short-lived and you can get back to your favorite show.

Bravo Now App Not Working

1) Restart the application

Restart the application

If you are streaming your favourite show and your app starts to act up out of nowhere; even though it was working fine a few moments earlier, the app may have crashed or some bug may have snuck in. 

It is not a big deal at all. You will need to properly close down the application, once you have closed down the application you simply re-start again. Once the application has restarted, it should be working properly and you can go back to watching your favorite movie or series again. 

This is the first thing you should consider doing if you have any trouble with the Bravo Now app.

2) Check Compatibility

Check Compatibility

When you want to install the Bravo Now application on a new device you need to keep in mind not all devices are compatible. This could be due to an incompatible operating system. If you try and install the app on a new device and you keep getting errors this may well be your problem. 

Of course, you would like to have the Bravo Now app on all of your devices for optimum convenience. When you purchase a new device, you should visit the Bravo website to determine the compatibility of your device and its operating system. That way you will know prior to trying to install the app, whether it will work or not.

3) Update the app

Update the app

Bravo Now, much the same as many other developers update the application to sort out bugs and security issues. That means that periodically a new version of the app will be released. If our app stops working it may be that you are running an outdated version of the application. 

This is a very easy problem to fix, and when you do, you will find the app will be running even better than before. Go to the store where you downloaded the application form and update directly from there. Once the update is complete your app should be running normally again.

4) Uninstall and reinstall the app

In the event your update does not fix your Bravo Now app you should uninstall the app from your device. Make sure that you have your account credentials before doing this because you may have to re-enter them. Once the application is removed from your device, go to your App store. 

From here you will need to re-install the Bravo Now app onto your device. This will wipe out all the data stored on your device for this application, which includes any bugs or issues that may have crept in. 

Uninstalling and re-installing the app should have your app running optimally again. Letting you be entertained by your binge-worthy series again. 

5) Check for VPN

Try Disabling your VPN 

The Bravo Now app is designed to be used only for your home network. It will not work on any other network besides the network you have a Bravo TV subscription on. More and more people are using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to protect their privacy. 

Unfortunately due to only being for home network use; the Bravo Now App will not work on a device with a VPN. You will not be allowed access to the app as long as you have an active VPN. An enabled virtual private network is one of the most common reasons for the Bravo Now application to not function. 

If you have tried the troubleshooting tips listed your device may have an active VPN. To be able to gain access to the application you would need to disable your VPN. It may be a software installation or a setting, depending on the device you are using. 

After disabling the virtual private network, simply restart the device and your access to Bravo Now will be back to normal. You will be streaming the night away again.

  1. I’ve restarted and tried on different devices. Naturally the new episodes don’t work, but I’m video raped by shows I don’t want to watch to raise ratings or worse last weeks show with content not interesting enough for the first airing. Thanks Andy.

  2. I know this is late but I went to my profile and linked the tv subscription and created a login to sign it. Seemed to fix the issue weirdly? Could had been a fluke but worth a shot.

  3. Bravo app has quit working altogether. Have used it for years and now NOTHING. Will not even let me reinstall it. I have Direct TV and travel for work through the week and this is getting frustrating now.

  4. I keep getting large blinking dots on the screen (like it’s going to connect but never does). The show I want to watch is there but frozen. Nothing seems to work to fix it.

  5. I’ve tried reinstalling, signing in again, clearing the data from the app. NOTHING WORKS. Why did this just stop working? I have an android phone and liked to watch at work. Now it just has 3 blinking dots and no show will play. Sad.

    • Omg meeee tooooo! I thought it was just me! Wtf is going on!?!? I use Xfinity anywhere and right now it’s going nowhere. HELP BRAVO, HELP! Oxygen app and syfy app won’t work either

  6. I am having the same issue. So upsetting. Uninstalled the reinstalled. Unconnected tv provider then reconnected. Nothing works. I just keep getting the 3 bubbles like it is trying to connect. The same with E when trying to watch. Help!!! Going on for weeks now. I get it on tv and computer but not on samsung cell phone.

  7. I get a blue screen of death when i click the app. Nothing but a blue screen. I have uninstall and installed several times and the same thing. I use an Apple TV box. All of the soft ware is up to date and everything else works fine.
