In addition to Now Tv only working in the UK, you may find other servies (ie UK catchup services iplayer/5 on demand all 4 etc etc) may not work outside of the UK.

The good news is that Now TV will at some point have a download system, similar to BBC iplayer/amazon/Netflix etc  so you could download ( in the UK) some content onto another device ( ie phone/tablet) and take it with you

2-Can the stick be used in Europe, if I take it on holiday with me?

 


@JBancroft The good news is whilst you can't do thiis currently, an EU ruling will allow streaming services to be accessed from EU members in the future, when this comes into force (supposed to be sometime this year but timetable not confirmed) this should allow you to watch NOW TV and other catch-up apps in EU, and the stick would be easy to pack assuming you can find a suitable TV with HDMI and USB ports.

Hi Andy

 

You said, "...this should allow you to watch NOW TV and other catch-up apps in EU..."  I agree that this should work Pre-Brexit but as for Post-Brexit, who knows?

Hi @Anonymous User

 

This is not official, but a customer spoke to live chat this week and live chat mentioned somewhere around the 23rd of February.

 

Take this with a pinch of salt until somebody from the NowTV Team confirms the official release date of the smart stick or a date is announced on the website / forum.

 

Can't see no reason why you can order as many smart sticks that you want once available (just bear in mind the 4 device rule that you can have on a single nowtv account).

I’ve spoken to someone on live chat and they even told me that smart stick release date is 23rd February so why almost a month from press release.

Hi @Anonymous User

 

You find with a lot of new tech products nowadays that press releases and early hands on reviews by selective websites is quite common before the products are available to the general public.

 

With regards to the answer of your question, I don't really know, maybe to generate interest and wet peoples appetites until sufficient stock levels are reached before the smart stick is officially released.

Hi @4268

 

I don't see any "reversing lights" on the photo Smiley Very Happy

 

Maybe when the person who was photo editing the picture got it the wrong way around ?

 

Saying that, I have seen some massive Photoshop blunders (posted on the internet) from professional magazines over the years and you think to yourself how did they miss that before the photo was sent out for printing Smiley Very Happy

@Anonymous User might have been had I not been on the trial. However, it's good to know when more folk are likely to start using them.

I trialled the nowtv stick and it was excellent

I was wondering if you use these in rooms with close proximity, do you get interference from the wi-fi remote?

 

I'd hate to be changing channels on the box downstairs from upstairs and vice versa. Could be quite annoying.

@Miketurn During the setup process the remote is paired up with the stick and only that paired remote can be used to control the stick, so if you have two set up in different rooms the remotes wouldn't interfere with each other (I have the stick set up in the same room as a Roku with wifi remote and the two live happily next to each other!)
