Worth switching?

Hi Folks, any users of the new stick care to comment on whether it's worth switching from the Now TV black box to the stick?


Thanks in advance.

I don't have the stick but maybe this thread can give you pros and cons. 🙂

I just did today... although my reasons for it were based on the assumption it was my black box that was giving me the common audio screeching/popping problems....

But no, they’re there on the stick too.

Remotes better, can control volume on side and there’s the new voice control which is fun but somewhat limited.

It’s nice that it has freed up a plug socket as the stick is powered by the TV USB port. And there’s no box visible.

Few home screen changes like the moved TV guide and some hidden additional settings like “night watching audio mode”.

All in all though.. a nice refined product... just a shame about the eternal sound popping issue.

Interesting, i won't bother wasting money on this then if the screeching noises are still apparent.
