Same as Now Tv box isn't it?


Roku is open, NowTV is a closed system. Essentially the same but Roku is ready to load other apps on etc.

what programs? are they free

Here's an Amazon review, which might help:

If you want a basic device to receive catch up TV then I would recommend this. Better than the Now TV box as there is no requirement to subscribe to on going services unless you choose to. You will however have to open a Roku account which you can do through the box and register your card details (should you want any paid for services). All catch up services are on : BBC iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player and Demand 5. Youtube is also available and loads of others.
Good value but you will need a HDMI cable as this is not provided. Mains powered by a supplied adapter. Other models with extra features like SD storage are available but cost more. Works wirelessly through you broadband.

It is open to most Roku apps but still kind of limited. Better off getting a Now TV box for £9.99 and a MDN Media Player box for about £25 and you have everything you need to watch files from USB/HDD/SD streaming files Youtube/Plex etc.

Does anyone know what the cheapest option is to stream YouTube to tv? I don't need iPlayer, movies etc.

Please

does it have a web browser and does it support flash video?

connect your mobile to tv with a cable.

Will these run xbmc

depends on mobile....check if its mhl compliant
if its a happy or PC a VGA/HDMI cable will work

I'd you've a decent phone I'd get chromecast,its still improving but I'm looking forward to vlc including a cast function then it will play absolutely everything.

I don't suppose there's a Netflix App for this ?

EDIT: Seems Netflix does work on this box, according to answers on Netflix

I have a now TV box that is brand new in the packaging. If you're interested in that, I'll put a for sale thread up?

That's quite a claim. I thought the Chromecast holds that crown.

Heat for the deal, for those who have their heart set on a Roku.

Here's an idea.. Go to google to find out what it is and how its different than the now TV box.

Both are just as crap..

I agree. If you can take a little time to do the research you will find that there are many better options than these types of boxes. If you own a smartphone or tablet then you essentially already own one if these... Just connect a hdmi lead or use DLNA.

Can you get Sky on the Roku?

Can you get Sky on the Roku?



You can get NowTV, which is owned by Sky and provides cheap-ish access to a range of their channels and programming. That's what I use my Roku LT for, works great.

If you have a nowtv box, then this is the same thing but without restrictions
i.e. runs both nowtv and netflix as well

does it do Lovefilm?

The Youtube app - does it 'cast' - e.g. ATM I send a video from my laptop to play on my Xbox360Youtube App, does this do the same?

Ps Hot as well

You tube has just been added to the now tv box today! It's the same as the PS3 one.

There are guides online that will help you make the Now TV box open and ready for other apps. Just ordered one myself for £9.99 from Sky directly and when it arrives Monday I will be doing this straight away so I'm able to add apps like Netflix and Plex

Is the USTVNow app working on this box, or has it been nobbled like on the NOWTV box?

You can't install Netflix on the NowTV box. Only Plex

If you want NetFlix you need a full Roku box..NOT NowTV.

I'm moving to a new house so thinking about TV and other services. With Roku and a broadband-only subscription (say from TalkTalk), does it mean that it feels just like having a TV subscription, in that I can watch all otherwise free channels? Can I watch broadcast, or only catchup? Would I need a TV license then?

By the way, which device is Roku 2400EU? Roku-2?

Yes.

I'll leave the other questions for someone who has a Roku!

Amazon have only released US services on Roku, lets hope they wake up and bring Amazon services to the UK

From what I've seen, Netflix is the only released hack on the NowTV box

Yes, you're able to cast to the YouTube app on the Roku via the YouTube app on your smartphone.

One could do that but the former is hardly convenient in the living room and the latter doesn't support streaming services. There aren't any better easy to use options for access to on demand services on a non-smart television.

Additionally the beauty of this and the NowTV box is that they work with older televisions too and aren't dependant on HDMI.

This is a Roku LT i.e. a predecessor to the Roku 1.

Watching live broadcasts requires a TV licence and I think only NowTV and BBC Sport channels allow for live streaming.
