Argos have the New Now TV smart box at less than half price with 3 months entertainment or 2 months Sky Cinema included in the box.

This is the "new" Smart box which includes a Freeview HD receiver and pause and rewind live TV.

It can't record but it's still a clever little box for the price.

its showing 24.99 but when you add it to the trolley it shows a total of 39.99.
Reserved to collect tomorrow anyway, hope they will honor the 24.99.

I've had an email confirmation saying total to pay £24.99... check if you've had the same.

The Freeview experience is not brilliant tbh, with now/next only and no 7 day guide or EPG.

Why would you need a seven day guide? You can’t set reminders or record anything.
#12
Very good picture quality compared to the other rubbish box nowtv sell.
#13
That looks like the Roku 4... Which isn't yet released in the UK.

Anybody know if it supports UDH (4k)? Perhaps you can sideload things like Plex/Amazon on to this?

Interesting.

prefer the previous generation box. this one is trying to take over your whole TV experience.

Thanks BSkyB marketing man.

Good for old TVs that don't have Freeview, or if your TV is FreeSat only and you want to use an aerial.

You might like to see what's on the rest of the day though - if this isn't going to be used as a Freeview device what's the point in buying this over a cheaper Now TV? I stand by the fact the Freeview implementation is poor.

According to the Now TV site the older box only does SD for the Entertainment pass whereas the new one does 720p on everything. At £23 including passes that seems like a good enough reason to upgrade to me.

I think you can sideload some things on to it but it definitely doesnt have 4k

Anyone that owns this - is the Freeview quality good? Thanks
#21
Got the one from Tesco as it was showing £39.99 for Argos, plus points too
#22
Anyone already have this and know if Plex app can still be installed?

I got one of these a few weeks ago from Argos eBay (same price) when the 10x Nectar points offer was running.
The Freeview SD/HD picture quality is excellent, even when running off a cheap indoor aerial.
But - as a couple of earlier comments have stated - the Freeview UI is basic and clunky, which is sort of understandable given the absence of any number keys on the remote.
I bought it primarily to get Freeview HD and catch-up services on a TV which isn't 'smart' and has only an SD Freeview tuner. For those two purposes, along with two months 'free' Sky Cinema, it ticked all my boxes so was well worth £25.
Be aware though that there is no aerial passthrough on this box, so unless you use an aerial splitter with two fly leads, the Freeview on your TV is effectively disabled so you're tied to using the aforementioned basic and clunky Freeview UI on this box.
I'll try and find the original post for this which contains further hopefully helpful comments...
Found it here.

It technically does support 4k as its a rebadged Roku 4 but there will be no 4k content unless plex works and can stream 4k. If you want to sideload things the Fire tv stick (or box if you want 4k) are much better options.
Interesting.

I personally think this box is a worthwhile upgrade purely for the pause / rewind function on live channels that the old box doesnt have.

I have one, its not our primary source but for £24 it is a good upgrade.

Although saying that it is also showing £39.99 for me

Great box! Used for 4 months now. Excellent picture quality, streaming and live. Cannot fault it.

Just use one of the internet TV guides to look up what’s on. I have Youview so I use this if I’m recording 2 things and I want to watch a third channel unavailable to me on Youview :)

If you don't like the freeview experience on it just plug the aerial into the TV and use it instead.

Looks like the same procedure as the older boxes.

Picked mine up today and I'm afraid it's expired at Argos. They honoured the £24.99 for this package on my deal as I showed them my email.

NB I believe it's still available at Tesco with a Sky Cinema 2 month offer for around £24.00.
