Worth noting that these boxes no longer support Plex via side-loading – Sky blocked all developer apps last week.

Patiently awaiting a bypass ...
This the old box where you can't pause live tv? New boxes you can.
are the codes already applied on the box for activation, or are the codes separate?
Good find. well worth it for 6 months entertainment tv

Can you not connect it up to Internet and block the update that stops the side-load?
Oh tempting for £19.99 but holding out for a deal on the new smart boxes. There was this price a while ago as well as Argos, Seen PC World still doing them for £19.99 as well.
Heat from me tho good find

AFAIK, there's no way to block updates if you're connected to the internet.

Assuming this isn't new stock already running firmware with the developer option blocked. will only be a matter of time until store stock ships with the new firmware...

Plex classic looks horrible now anyway on these boxes compared to the new Plex app on the roku's

I think that's gonna be a few months away, must be plenty of old stock sitting on shelves

I dunno about the look, if it works it works, which is all people care about, I actually prefer it to the mobile and tv layout

Until it updates. . .

I really liked having PLEX on the Now TV box because it was faster than the Amazon Firestick and kept things all in one place. Now I have to switch between devices.

There are any sports channel? Like sky sports?
Do you have to use the box they give you for the pass? I use chromecast currently and don't want to waste one of my registered devices on this box.

Thanks

Nope, just apply the voucher via though your account and all should be fine (apply during the end month of the current voucher cancelling the auto renewal first)

If you have any current subscription you can watch Sky Sports News.
There is an ability to buy vouchers for 1 day, 1 week, 1 month of all Sky Sports channels.

I believe there is a sports box bundle which comes with 2 one day sports passes.

Excellent offer Reserved one. Thank you

Update Currys just rang to cancel my order as none in stock despite website saying they had stock

Do Sky not do 1080p yet? I can only see that it's 720p in the description. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
Ordered mine with free delivery in the next 5 days - didn't see the no home delivery bit, and can't be bothered to fetch them. (only really want to vouchers I will be starting to give away the boxes soon)

I have had several vouchers - they apply to your account not to a specific box.

I was concerned about that at first too and love movies in full HD. But try NowTV and you won't notice the difference most of the time. I think they could do 1080p if they wanted but need to give people an incentive to pay 4x the price.

No one you know? Really? That is strange and I find that a bit hard to believe because it's a forced automatic update and there's no way to get around it. Being connected to the network, connected to NowTV means you get the update whether you like it or not.

The internet is full of comments about the update and no workarounds yet.

Anyyone who has managed to get one what is the expiry dates on the passes?

Don't think dates are specified, but they will last 12 months at least from date of purchase, sometimes longer - see this similar query on their forums.

My passes for both Entertainment and Movies passes expire July 2018
Although it looked like an in store only deal, I just bought one of these with free next day home delivery. It arrived today via DPD. If you add

it to your basket it gives you the option of home delivery (well it did for me anyway). Also saved a whopping £0.17 through TCB!
Anyone seen any deals on the new smart boxes
swindonindieguy

Not available for home delivery unfortunately

Yes it is (and it was three days ago when I ordered)
- depends if you're on the page at the right moment, just keep returning/refreshing until it is available

Currys called me to say no stock available and have offered me a refund
