Re: Now TV

Now TV is a very cheap and great service, you can easily pickup vouchers on the cheap.

Re: Now TV

Yes, I have two, one of the small ones, and one of the "larger" ones with pause.

I find them useful for films, much easier for picking the months you want to subscribe to the various channels as well.

As Snoopz says, you can often pick up the vouchers cheap as well.

Re: Now TV

I have a Now tv box and a Roku3 if I remember correctly you get 1080p on the Roku3 when streaming box sets not sure about live streams though. Which is only available on the larger Now tv box with pause on.

Pretty much everywhere, but try Amazon, but look out for deals with vouchers and boxes, but you don't need a box to use now Tv if your TV or other hardware supports it.

From the official site, they're doing 2 months for the price of 1 and you may get cash back if you go via Topcashback
so it is a real bargain at the moment.

You probably need to do your Googling to find out more info once you work out what you want.

Myself i have apps for Now TV built into my TV, i also have a normal Now TV box that doesn't allow recording, not sure what the latest boxes are like.

Re: Now TV

The old, old Now TV box was white, the old one was black and the latest has Freeview and you can pause/rewind live TV (this might be the larger one you've heard about).

The differences between the old black box and the newer one with Freeview are shown here:

If you think you want to go for this deal i would snap it up unless you find something better as these kind of deals always go quickly.
