ITV on NOW TV Box coming soon

ITV Player is arriving soon onto your NOW TV Box.
It means you will now have the full set of terrestrial catch up apps with BBC iPlayer, 4oD and Demand 5 already available.
You don't need to do anything, it will automatically be downloaded onto your homepage.
You'll also see a new homepage design which should make it easier to navigate through the apps.

You do not need a SKY NOW TV account to watch the Terrestrial Channels.

Installed it yesterday on my Roku LT  Smiley
Seems to work ok but unlike recording on Humax there's no way of avoiding adverts.

According to NOWTV community site it's being phased in with upgrade to 5.4 that I got on Roku back in April.

Re: ITV on NOW TV Box coming soon

It has finally arrived on the 2400SK Roku box Smiley System update says Last checked: Jun 19 21:12, Last updated: Jun 19 21:13, looks like it only took 1 minute to update,
About: says it is version 5.4 . build 3437
& Plex is still there in the user modified section  Grin
It asked for the Postcode (new that anyway, from convo's on here Tongue)
They have also changed the layout of the menus, to a much more user friendly, & aesthetically pleasing to the eyes Wink
The light blue background has been changed to (Default (set by content)) with a colour chart thrown in for good measure
That said it does only take a moment to adjust to the new menu layout
You can now preview each channels screensaver / view screenshots or set it if you so desire
There is a new column on the left that list by category, like most popular, Film& TV, News Weather Sport, Music etc, with Large Icons on the right
There are more channels per real estate, with the description now on the right  of the screen
They have also added a Captions Menu option (That are on during instant replay) (They settings are On / Off / Instant Replay)
There are a few more options in the Captions menu, where you can change
All spellings are as on the NowTV Roku 2400SK box
1. Text: Style / Edge effect /  size / Color / Opacity
2. Background: Color / Opacity
3. Window: Color / Opacity
They have added a Third party licenses (has the caption) "Fine print that especially delights our lawyers"
4. Audio mode: Stereo / Surround sound
5. Sound effects volume: High / Medium / Low / Off
6. WiFi now tells you what channel you are on & added an Update connection function
They have made everything easier to navigate to, just by using the arrow keys
Is anyone else liking the new 5.4 update ?Huh
