I'm interested in this, so long as you can still side load Plex on it? I've seen one in action and they do seem a lot more responsive than the original ones... I'll have a look in store tomorrow.

Thanks OP!

You can definetly sideload Plex onto it.Using Rarflix version of plex just google it.
They have been this price xmas
Great post. Just got one in store and loaded Plex. Thanks!
yes plex is fine, did one on Friday They are a fair bit heavier and the power supply is rated higher, meant I had some cable juggling to do.
So this is definitely on then? I can call in before work tomorrow, my local always has these deals (_;)

Great deal will check this out tomorrow.
Is there a reason I should change my older nowtv box with plex to this one? Nobody in the house watches sport so the pass is not a good reason.

NOBODY purchases the NOW TV BOX deal - for the BOX!

Just give us the passes at a reduced rate to save the PLANET from NowTv Box Landfill Poisoning!!

As well as it being slightly better performing, you can hard wire instead of wifi so more stable/faster connection.

The important thing for me is that plex (a sideloaded media app) can stream at 1080p instead of only 720p on the original white version. Makes no difference if you only use it for sky services or catch up as they don't offer 1080p on it.

As we all purchase these deals for the PASSES - why not just reduce the price of the PASSES to reduce the size of the landfilled BOXES?

OP .. you should have mentioned which Sainsburys you saw/bought yours at too?, lol. :-)

For anyone thats interested, Sainsburys in Barkingside, East London has about 2 or 3 of these NowTV 2 Day Passes in stock for £12.

Ps.
Bare in mind that its ONLY the 2 Day Passes Box thats the £12?, as the NowTV 2 Months Movie Pass and the NowTV 3 Months Entertainment Pass are still £15 each ..... lol. :-)

May be a silly question, but here goes.

Why do you buy them for just the box? surly once you have one in every room you need, it's the voucher you need.

Is it possible to flash it back to a Roku?
Is there anyway to get Dolby digital out of the movies on Sky on the black box? Connected via HDMI and settings checked!

You can install one extra app in a similar way to the roku. Such as to view media from USB, or stream from your own media server.

Roku is far more expensive (I have one of those too), so these are great for the money and make good gifts as well.

Selling the passes means the last few boxes cost me around £3 each

You can watch live BBC, and itv, 4 and 5 as well I believe. You might be able to find a freeview app for the other channels, I'm not sure.

as a few have said, i purchased mine for the box and think the pass is still sitting in the box. Side load plex onto it and off you go.....more or less.
What they need is to add the option of subtitles FFS.
but gutted, still £15 at Hillsborough branch. Only want it for plex in a bedroom.

Whatever 'STUFFS' float your boat I guess?. :-(

Stronger Box, Faster Box, Stronger & Faster Processor Box, and Box Supports BOTH WiFi and Ethernet 'Hardwired' Ethernet? (whereas the original NowTV 1 Box was less all these above things .. other than WiFi only ofcourse?) so ..... :-)
£15 in my local, the advisor said the offer might be store specific

No you can't unfortunately.

I have heard that you can with the Amazon Fire Stick, but don't quote me on that because I don't have one.

Didn't there used to be a watch live option in iplayer?

You can still watch BBC live (last time I checked anyway), ITV too, but thats it from the freeview channels as far as I know.
The poster wanted to use the box as a freeview receiver in a room without an aerial, so I don't think it would suit their needs with just those 2 terrestrial channels streaming live.

Actually you can't watch some of the films on iplayer live either, as we found out over xmas now I think about it.
