It's the same for me. Streaming catch-up services is where it's at now. Although the visual quality of most of the streaming services needs to improve πŸ˜‰

Re: Forthcoming New NOWTV Box

We use our PVR for everything on Freeview. The main reason being that it is a convenient way to track shows we are watching across all broadcasters and removes the urgency to watch things before they dissapear off of catch-up services.

If all of the major broadcasters offered 30 day catch-up AND a way to sync favourites across devices, I suspect that our viewing habits would change.

I have an old DVB-T PVR which I only use now as an RF out. Between using the Amazon Fire Stick and the black NOW TV box, I'm covered.

Re: Forthcoming New NOWTV Box

I have a smart TV with the main catch up services, but I still use a PVR for most Freeview shows since I can skip the adverts.

Trial is 12 weeks as per post at top. I would expect it to be launched then. Basically in time for the summer holidays.
