Comparison specifications between the two boxes linked below.

You can you use the free Roku Remote app on the new smart box (however you will need to add a Wake on Lan WOL app) onto your phone / tablet due to the smart box goes into a deep sleep mode when not in use.

 

The Live Pause feature works on Freeview and the Now TV Live Entertainment & Movie channels (not sure about the BBC iplayer app). 

 

Edit - Just check the BBC IPlayer app on the box and yes you can pause and rewind the live BBC channel.

That's more a feature of the iPlayer than the NOW TV Smart box, which doesn't use local storage but just requests the correct timestamps from the BBC content delivery networks.
