Just spotted for a tenner more (£34.99) you can have a similar deal with either 5 months entertainment, or 4 months movies. Have updated the original post in case that is of interest to anyone.

Great thanks ordered one

Thanks these boxes are a worthwhile upgrade...

​You do need an aerial.

Think of this as a NowTV box with built in Freeview tuner (or as a Freeview box with built in NowTV - same difference!)

The Freeview experience is not amazing - now/next EPG only, no 7 day guide for example.

Exactly the same deal i posted this morning and got a load of abuse of the regulars.

stupid question, can you use 2 nowtv boxes with 1 account?

Justmeeee

Yep, max 4 devices per account

In theory you could by both variants of this (movies pack, and entertainment pack), then create a single account and apply both vouchers to give you the full set!

I believe if you are a new customer, there is an introductory deal which gives cheap passes for a few months too:-

I just picked one up i like the layout of the freeview and nowtv stuff nice interface. Oh and the remote works without having to point it at the box

Depends. If your TV can pick up channels with an indoor aerial then the nowtv box should.

Ideally you'll want to be within a few miles of transmitter with near line of sight.

Btw there isn't such thing as a free view aerial or digital aerial, so if your current aerial is an old 'analogue' type it'll probably work, assuming it's pointing in right direction and not broken.

well you can stream 'Live' Sky Cinema in 720p rather than SD (as now) for a start. That'll do for me.

Can you install the plex app on these newer ones anyone know?

I have the Plex Classic app working on one of these newer NOW TV Smart boxes. Having some problems with stuttering streaming though compared to my other devices. Still happy with my smart box overall

Quidco are doing £10 cashback on a £25 spend atm so you could get the longer contract at the same price.

Can you use this box without it being plugged into an aerial? we don't have an aerial, we do have wifi and currently have now tv (normal box), but I just noticed that someone has commented that the remote doesn't need to see the box to work,and that would be really handy. Obviously I'd lose some of the free view functions without an aerial, but would it work as a 'normal' now tv box?

Just to say I saw these at the same price in Asda earlier today (Weymouth), I presume it's nationwide so if you've a Asda nearer than an Argos it may be worth a look!

Yes you should be able to use it as a NowTV box only (via ethernet cable/WiFi) without having an aerial plugged in to it. I'd have thought though that if that's what you want to do, you can get a non-Smart Mark 2 box for around £15.

​I have the mark 2 now tv box now, I just like the idea of not having to point to remote at the box. Apparently the snazzy new box doesn't need line of sight to the remote.
