Welcome to the forum. Great to see another sci-fi fan around! NOW TV stream in 720p HD on most devices now,  but there's no news on if or when this will be upped to 1080p HD. However streaming on my devices on the big screen, the quality is pretty good.

@SciFiKriss I'm with you there, I keep badgering them for 5.1 surround as well (everything is currently streamed in stereo) so hopefully that and 1080p will be not far away.

Not too worried about the sound... although I do have the new box that has 5.1 pass through sound... also do get HD Freeview channels as well just want my other stuff in HD... 🙂

I read there might be an update coming in the near future because the new NOW TV Stick they're releasing is supposedly going to transmit streams in 1080p.

Hi @Jobear91

 

According to the recent press releases it mentions full HD sometime this year 2018 with no specific dates given.

 

What Sky / NowTV haven't confirmed or denied is if the Full 1080p HD option package is going to be an extra cost or not Smiley Mad

No idea on when but I'm fairly certain I read somewhere there would be a HD surcharge. I could be wrong but I think it was circa £5? which would cover all your passes.
