The RRP for a late Feb launch was £15, looks like Argos are being greedy.

They are cheap but I'd always go with a full roku, the express is under £30 and can play amazon/netflix/google as well as nowTV.

Still not released yet
when did they release now tv smartstick?
Editor
As a heads up, this is/will be RRP. At £20 there will be three packages with either one month of movies, two-month entertainment pass or three months of kids' TV.

The stick on its own retails at £14.99 with the included voice remote.

True enough. For those who don't mind a bit of sideloading, it looks to be easy enough to add the Round apps for Netflix, Amazon, etc.

Didn't realise sideloading had come back? I used to use nowTV boxes all the time but ditched them last year when they disabled dev mode.

I beta tested the smart stick and pretty much told them that the voice control was poor, looks like they couldn't be bothered to fix it.
Any point in getting this if you have the box?

I have the roku express and assuming this has the same hardware then it's about a gazillion times faster than the roku 2 / black NowTV box. I use an oldish 22" TV and the TV's USB provides enough power too, so no power cable required in my usage.

The best feature is got to be that its not an IR remote so doesn't have to be line of sight any more!
Good deal. Thanks for posting!

Roku express comes up on offer for £24 occasionally, rather be patient and pay £5 more for amazon/netflix

It's an official listing from Argos...
Got mine Saturday gone from argos on ebay. Collected in store
I'm surprised these devices are still so popular considering no sideloading kodi/web browser etc
I wonder if the remote works on their smartbox the TV guide and my TV buttons would be excellent. Get sick of trying to navigate through the menus grrrr 😁
