How to watch now tv box on 2 televisions

I have just ordered a now tv box and will be hooking it up to my tv in bedroom. Is it possible to watch content in the other tv downstairs at same time? Otherwise using 2 devices
How would this work. Would you need to take remote downstairs to use?
Thanks. A bit new to this. Getting movies for £15 for 6 months so giving it a go.

Re: How to watch now tv box on 2 televisions

The NowTV service has a device Limit of 4 and a streaming to devices limit of 2 at the same time...

This 2 devices means any 2 of those 4 including the PC you can play content on.

 

If you want Dual TVs running seperate films on NowTV. that requires a second box/device.

If you want a HDTV in the other room to display the same film for the cheapest way, that requires a HDMI splitter and a long second HDMI cable... To send the IR remote signals to another room requires a IR reciever and IR blaster set up...

 

All these extra things can be purchased from electronics retailers...

Its just cheaper to get another cloned Ruko NowTV box.. for £9.99 others allready got 3 boxes... but can only watch nowTV on 2 at the same time..  

 

I Do not work for SkyUK or NowTV...

As I No longer live in the UK, I no longer run the NowTv boxes... So am an Ex Community Contributor user

As GraphiteGB says, just buy another box rather than messing around with HDMI splitters etc etc. You can use the two boxes with the same account.

Hi Baloon123.

 

Thanks for posting.

 

You can use your account on up to 4 devices. You can watch on up to 2 at the same time.

 

Currently the only Smart TV's we support is LG. You can find the NOW TV app under Premium Apps on your LG Smart TV, if you can't see this it may not be supported on that model. 

 

Thanks

Re: How to watch now tv box on 2 televisions

Can I use two NowTV boxes in the same household watching separate programmes, movies etc at the same time, on one subscription?

Hi, how do you register the second box. Are the on screen instructions straightforward or are there any pitfalls to avoid? How does the free trial period work for the second box?
