The NOW TV Box is here! By NOWTVBloggers | 26/07/2013

NOW TV Box

Here at NOW TV, we're always looking for ways to bring the latest and greatest Sky content to as many people as possible. As Head of Devices, I’m barely getting over the excitement of us recently launching on PS3 and now today we're proud to announce a new product we believe you’re going to love: the NOW TV Box.  Priced at £9.99, this tiny box (it measures smaller than a regular pub beer mat!) is primed to change the way you consume your favourite movies and live sports at home.


Available from today at nowtv.com, the easy-to-use box connects your TV wirelessly to the Internet, turning a standard TV into an on-demand, socially connected smart TV in a matter of minutes. Once connected, homes with the NOW TV Box will enjoy access to BBC iPlayer, Demand Five, Sky News and, using a NOW TV account, access to all of our great NOW TV Movies and Sports content.

 

Despite the explosion in devices such as games consoles and connected TVs, there are still up to tens of millions of TVs in the UK that can’t currently connect to the internet. If you own one of these TVs, the NOW TV Box is the perfect way to watch your favourite content back on the big screen.


We are very excited about the NOW TV Box and see it as an affordable and simple way for everyone to join the online TV revolution - just head over to shop.nowtv.com for more information.

Let us know what you think about the NOW TV Box in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter.

Hello peterd!

 

Thank you for your comment - we're glad you like the look of our lovely NOW TV Box!

 

Regarding your device query, we're always working on new devices so please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates - we might introduce the AppleTV in the future. At the moment, we support Airplay mirroring for live Sports, but not Movies right now. We're working on it!

 

For some information on Sky Go devices, please get in touch with Sky themselves - they'll be happy to help.

 

Many thanks,

 

Vicky

So this is a nice rebranding of a Roku LT box but are there any plans to put a NowTV app on the AppleTV. This box still won't have the functionality I would like that I can get out of the AppleTV. If not, are there plans to add an AirPlay streaming option in to the SkyGo app on the iPhone/iPad?
