When will we be able to access UK TV Player on our Now TV boxes?

@Anonymous User they would have to build a Roku app first before NOW TV could consider adding it to their store.

It's not that simple, each device has a different framework and methods to play the video.

Their Android app is so rubbish that it took them 6 months to get it to work with Lollipop (although they claim they are ready for Marshmallow)

Not really, if the developers at UKTV don't make a Roku app, it'll never appear on the NOW TV box, and if they do, it would still need to go through the Sky approval process.
