Basically this is the box you get when you buy the now tv rebranded box from sky, (£9.99) but this gives you access to now tv and netflix with no work around needed.

Got the wired version, love it. Netflix and Flex work brilliantly.

So whats the difference between this and the £9.99 apart from price

The £9.99 box is a locked down sky branded version of the box, netflix (nowtv/sky's rival) is blocked from the box.

Sky opens out "premium" movie rentals to YouView, NowTV, and Roku.

Sky has taken the bold step of opening out its movie rental service to non-subscribers, making it available to a host of free to view rivals.

Besides being able to access the Sky Store through a web browser, you can now access Sky’s enviable catalogue of 1,200 premium (and not-so-premium) movies if you own a YouView, Now TV or Roku box.

Film rental prices range from 99p to £3.49, and you have 30 days to get it watched. Once you’ve started watching, you have 48 hours to complete the film. All pretty standard stuff, then.

For YouView, Now TV and Roku owners there’s a Sky Store app available, through which you’ll be able to rent movies once you’ve signed up for a Sky account through the Sky Store website.

Correct.
And Lovefilm is not on it yet, but IMHO, if you have nowtv and netflix, your covered!
Add to that the news today of being able to buy on demand movies ie new superman for £3.49 and its not a bad wee box of tricks!

4OD also. Great little box.

Well i used a voucher to get 6 months of lovefilm but havn't used it yet till i get back after the holiday.So still wondering what box to get i already have a panasonic smart hdtv and ps3.But thinking about when i go home watching at my parents non smart hdtv

hmmm 720p i guess not the best for larger tv's like 40" upwards. Mine being 55" i think i may hold out for another stream box.

Just reserved was going to buy this yesterday. Glad I didn't thank you for posting. Heat added.

Or more like the Now TV box is a box that copied Roku and offers less unless you have Sky.

Not unless the set has an HDMI socket, which is unlikely.

Depending on the set you need something that has a scart socket, or that does RF out.

It is a Roku box, just re skined with now tv logos, but the software is locked to skys content, but they are heavily subsidising the box, at £9.99 delivered!

Stick plex on the thing and it's a great :-)

how to buy the 9.99 box? I tried to search on sky and google, no clue yet, thx

This is great, doesn't have love film on it, in fact love film isnt on many streaming devices so it's pretty crap.
Yes if you subscribe to Netflix you can watch on roku but not on a now tv box

I don't know. Maybe it's because we want the film companies to keep making them?

NOT THE PS4

Only if you want to watch Hancock's Half hour, Casablanca and Dr Strangelove.

Does this crash like the Now TV box?

If I leave my Now TV box with an app open for a day or so it just locks up.
