With the NOW TV box, you'll be able to turn your existing TV into a smart TV with no hassle. The NOW TV box is tiny and will fit neatly into any room, but good things often come in small packages and this is no exception.
When you connect the box to your TV, you'll be able to stream on demand entertainment and watch it on your big screen rather than a laptop or portable device. All you need to do is create a now TV account, then plug in your box and connect it to your Wi-Fi. You'll then be able to stream not only a huge selection of on demand content, but also 11 of the most popular UK pay TV channels, as well as Sky Cinema and Sky Sports. You'll even be able to download and access apps like Facebook and Spotify, all through your TV.
There are lots of extras you can get when you use NOW TV. If you want to watch the great movies you missed at the cinema, or you simply can't wait for the DVD release, you can get a Sky Cinema Month Pass and have unlimited access to Sky Cinema, with hundreds of films covering every genre as well as lots of the latest and greatest blockbusters. You'll even get a 14 day free trial, so you don't have to pay anything for the first month. You can also get a Sky Spots Day Pass which will remain valid for 24 hours, starting from when you first use it so you can buy it in advance to make sure you have it ready for the day of a big event. Plus, for the first time, you'll be able to access 10 of the best pay TV channels in the UK without being tied to a contract.
To buy your NOW TV box, all you need to do is enter your delivery and payment details on the NOW TV website and you'll receive an email confirming your order. You'll get another email when the order has been dispatched. Once you receive it, all you need to do is connect it to your TV with the HDMI cable and turn on your Wi-Fi. Your TV needs to have an HDMI port for the box to be connected, and also needs to be HD ready.
One of the great things about the NOW TV box is that you don't need a subscription to use it, so you're not tied to any contracts. You do, however, need to set up a NOW TV account, which you can do by either signing up to a 14 day free trial of the Sky Cinema Pass, or by purchasing a Sky Sports Day Pass.
Your NOW TV box will arrive within 5 days of your order confirmation, and will be delivered via Royal Mail. You'll be able to track your order. The delivery will include your box, a remote control and batteries, a HMDI cable and a power adapter, so you'll have everything you need and be able to enjoy your new NOW TV box straight away.
As of June 11th, customers who are using a NOW TV box will see that they now have access to the new ITV Player App, which is being automatically downloaded onto boxes across the country over the next few weeks. ITV is the final terrestrial channel to be added to catch-up service on NOW TV and Sky in general, following the addition of BBC iPlayer, 4OD and Demand 5.
Viewers will be able to catch up on all of the latest programming (within the previous month) from ITV 1 to ITV 4 via the NOW TV box, including all 34 World Cup group stage matches that will be broadcast during the coming days – you never have to miss a kick of the competition! In addition, popular programmes like Midsomer Murders, Coronation Street and Take Me Out will be available.
The NOW TV box will be evolving continuously over the next month or two, with new software updates meaning a new homepage screen, refreshed navigation and the installation of the BBC Sport App.
