Re: New Now TV box coming in August

Thanks for the link.
I have been looking at various boxes since moving to fibre and it's hard knowing what to go for.
Chromecast, Kodi, Amazon fire stick and a host of others all seem to offer different things.
Apologies for high jacking your thread but it would be useful to hear from others who have either got or intend to get one of these devices.

Well it isn't high jacking and I know a couple members on this forum use these boxes so discuss away. Maybe someone here already has the new version?

Re: New Now TV box coming in August

So, it's a dumbed-down Roku3 then? Grin
The present NowTV is a dumbed-down RokuLT which has a sky-centric OS installed, cheap to buy yes, but feature-limited compared to the full Roku versions, we have a Roku 2XS (which only came into proper use after I got Plusnet's FTTC), and they're brilliant little boxes, also available as a "stick" that plugs directly into your TV's HDMI port, and so many apps available to play too, well recommended, but only the Roku versions...

Re: New Now TV box coming in August

Apart from confirming that I have had one of the new boxes on trial for a week I can't say a lot more because of NDA.
For the proposed price it'll be excellent value  Wink
I've also had a Roku LT for 30 months and an HDMI Streaming Stick since January.

having been under an "NDA" from sky before (many times), all i can say is that NDA is totally unenforceable and has no legal or civil basis.

Possibly so but when I sign something like that I honour the actual spirit of the agreement.

Re: New Now TV box coming in August

did they make you physically sign something this time?
all previous times there has been nothing physical and has simply been implied.

The only significant downside for me so far is the lack of Amazon Instant Video.  I would probably have taken out a year's Prime if the Roku had supported that.

I've just found that out as there's a black helicopter over the house with Sky Troupers abseiling into back garden  Lips are sealed

surely you're educated enough to use google though?
in the time it took you to post that question, you could have simply googled it and got your answer quicker.
