Ordered. Cant see much more reduction BF for these smart boxes.

Heat, ordered...

Don’t think the smart will go any lower

Don’t even think Black Friday will beat the £15 QVC price the other day.

I did a qvc deal other day just got slate

They are doing these for £20 in Tesco bedford, I just picked one up and was about to post it when I saw this. So if you can’t get the original posted item, try Tesco

Does the live pause and record work for freeview once the sub expires?

Yes.

Do you get access to all the on-demand movies with the sky cinema pass ?

Also the only difference between these smart boxes and the old nowtv box is freeview ? Is that right ?

Are you saying you don't get the on-demand list of movies, you just have to watch whatever is on with a 30 min pause window ?

Heat ordered to pick up today thanks OP

You get access to the Sky Cinema Movies, plus the live showings on sky movie channels.

Still holding out for the 6 months Ent pass for 19.99... Fingers crossed.

You get Freeview channels via your normal TV aerial. The rest like Movies and everything you get with an entertainment pass eg Sky Movies, Sports, all apps like BBCi Player, YouTube, ITV catch-up and all the TV box sets and series like Walking Dead, Blacklist, Blindspot etc is accessed via your Internet.

tldr: everything except Freeview channels require a Internet connection. Freeview only requires a TV aerial.

Thanks OP. Ordered.

I really want one that records, we decided to cancel virgin tivo as fed up of the price increases. We don’t watch a lot of tv but I’d rather let it record and stack shows. Don’t think the 30 mins +|- will be quite enough

Is there something similar that records please?

Is this streaming 1080p , seems to say yes on currys site but now tv forum says max 720p!

Couldn't you just return this unused if it did reduce in black Friday and you managed to get one cheaper? Normally have 30 days to return

My understanding is that the box is 1080p compatible but Now TV streams in 720p, my apologies if I'm wrong.

Smokin for the smart box. Just picked up the shop to deal but assume the passes have a long enough expiry on them. Thanks op

Great deal.

Pros: very small box, an easy way of jumping between Freeview and now tv without having to change the input on your TV, includes the Freeview HD channels, a good selection of free apps including Sky Sport News (which gives you free access to SSN providing you have any of the now tv passes activated) and the Box TV app which gives you access to a selection of music channels. The other pro is that the entertainment pass gives you access to all the best shows on Sky but at a fraction of the price.

Cons: the TV guide only displays 'now and next', the remote does not have numbers on so you have to scroll through channels with the HD channels being at the bottom of the list, and while it is easy to jump between Freeview and now tv in the programme guide selecting a now TV programme will then load up the now TV app. Would love to see the channels integrated into one list.

Overall I think it is a great product and should be snapped up at this price.

Can you continue using the iplayer, itv player etc and the freeview tv if you cancel the subscription?

thanks for clearing that up.
Seems pointless, Now tv needs to up their game to 1080p. 4k streaming has taking off a while ago

Yes

blistering hot and cheapest its been fpr a while.the 3 months is worth £20 alone. i paid £50 for an extra box from pc world last month. if your considering nowtv it is a great little tv package, smart box 100% worth it.

Are there any decent alternatives that only rely on Internet connection? I keep seeing android boxes being posted here such as xiaomi box... What are these boxes about?

Reason I ask is I'd like to install a TV in a room without physical wires from my satellite dish...

Is there an expiry on the passes? Just thinking, if I were to buy two of these (multiroom) would the vouchers stack so I’d get 6 months entertainment on the same account?

Also, is there a decent app remote control (similar to the fire stick one) that makes typing far easier?

Sky

Really noisy during a program. At night too noisy.

Does anyone know if these receive their Freeview signal via an aerial or is it over the wifi?
