This is probably of no use to anybody but myself but, for some reason, I just don't like the stick form factor and so will never ever buy a Roku or Now TV stick.
OK, there's no logic, as such, to my dislike nor can I even offer any kind of explanation, it's just the way it is.

All well and good, but all Now TV sell these days is a stick. So if your box(es) die(s), you won’t have any alternative from Now TV.
FWIW, I think boxes are less problematic on the whole. Getting reliable WiFi signals for sticks and overheating are a couple of bugbears I have. And apart from being able to hide them on wall mounted TVs there isn’t much else to recommend them. The pink logo box is the best, if you can get hold of it.
looking for something that is portable to take to different locations.
To be honest they are all pretty portable! Ok, maybe the boxes require an extra cable and a dedicated charger, but it’s not like bringing a TIVO box along with you. I used to bring white boxes away with me when working cos if I forgot it, I wouldn’t be too worried. Just need to change password. Did once turf up at a hotel when someone had logged into Netflix app on TV, which was a result!
ps - just threw 5 white boxes in bin, no use anymore 😛
