We’re celebrating summer with something new…

11 17 13.5K

Summer’s officially here and if that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve got not one, but two huge bits of news to tell you. 

 

Calling all sports fans – get ready to say hello to our new Sky Sports Month Pass. Our new Sky Sports Pass gets you a whole month of the biggest live sport from all 7 Sky Sports channels. So now you can choose a day, a week or a whole month of live Sky Sports from NOW TV. And don’t forget, there’s no contract and no hidden charges.

 

The Month Pass will arrive just in time for the new football season and you can grab yours for just £31.99 a month.

 

Next up, we’ve given our NOW TV Box a slick makeover. Our brand new box is just as small as ever, but it’s faster and smarter than before – plus, it’s a little sexier too. The latest box will also have a handy Ethernet port, giving you more ways to get online. You can still enjoy a world of entertainment on the box, like catch up TV, awesome apps and your favourite TV shows, movies and sport.

 

You don’t have to wait long to get your hands on our new NOW TV Box – it’s available now at www.nowtv.com/box for just £14.99 and will be rolling out in selected retailers in the coming weeks.

 

New NOW TV Box + Sky Sports Month Pass 

 

Until next time,

The NOW TV Team

Unlikely the roku3 does not stream LIVE in HD so this box is even more unlikely to... The Apple TV is built on Apples RTSP, MOV and M4V tech so has a Past history of streaming LIVE events in HD...

Never mind that the Consoles that Cost £250+ apps and PC apps don't stream in HD is a bigger clue...

I emailed now TV support people and they confirmed that  the new now TV box still won't  stream live sports in HD.  Shame.

Then why release it.

The box is releasing  because NowTV  Mark 1 box is to slow in CPU and Low in RAM to run NEW HTML5 frameworks released by BBC and Google Youtube apps correctly..

The mark 1 device Will reach incompatablity status with new apps at some point... and applications and services will stop upgrading.. 

Hence the release of the Mark 2 box... that will have updates and features that will keep it behind the More expensive, Nexus player and Amazon FireTV boxes but be low enough in price that the discounted box remians an option over the ROKU 3 full price box...

Great news about the monthly pass, especially since stopping sky go for non satellite customers.

Given that the stream is SD although good value compared to subscription or individual passes, I would still only like to pay £20 a month for SD and £30 for HD, no nonsense prices

The pre recorded content is HD.. only live is SD... on the roku line of boxes..

Love the redesign on ROKU3. Really makes the Live TV more accessible rather than an afterthought and seems far more intuitive. Congratulations to all involved!

£32 for sports, Sky has and always will be ripoff merchants. How about a sky football channel with football only subscription as I don't watch other sports so don't see why I should pay for

Roy, Pethead65 but as before it's still possible to sideload it via the developer options.
