Are these the exact same as a 'Now TV' box or are there some differences?

Now TV is far less capable
The 'apps' / services you can run on now TV boxes are limited, for instance no Amazon prime video. I have one of these and it is fine for my purposes.
Can you jailbreak them?
Is this the one that's only single band WiFi?
Also in Curry's if that's better for anyone.

Curry's
Can you side load app's on this?
Also in Argos.

I think so but check the comparison chart on the Roku site.
The stick is dual band though.

No need to, it's not restricted like the NowTV version of the Roku boxes.
Better off paying the extra for the Streaming Stick+ with the faster CPU and 5GHz WiFi
Just waiting on the Streaming Stick+ to drop in price. Really hope it does soon

They all use the same Cortex A53 CPU

Was hoping to put Chili movies on it. That's not on there.

Both made by Roku but the actual Roku device is much better
These also have the Apple tv app on .

How bout f1
3 year replacement care plan for £7.99 seems a sensibly priced option.Private listen... if your hard of hearing can this be used instead of turning up the tv ?, BUT at the same time others can watch at a sensible audio level. I see the NOWTV sign on the box so you can use the codes on this box in the same way as the ordinary Nowtv box ?

Yes, you can. :-)

Maybe someone else can help you out with the other bits of your question though ...

Amour, I'm a complete nooby about this device. Can you please explain why I would use this, if I already have a smart TV?
(which I don't have, but planning to buy soon)
Anyone know if when using this with NowTV you can still pay the 3 quid a month and get HD picture quality on it?

I can only speak for my specific use case, smart TVs generally use their own brand or type of operating system and storage solutions which in my experience is not a whole lot nor is there extended support by the platform holder. My few years old LG and Samsung smart TV have already been dropped by Dutch content providers (the motherland) while geo ristrictions prevent me from installing UK apps like now tv or BBC iPlayer in Holland. Both problems are instantly solved using one of these boxes bought and setup in the UK as long as I use my accounts once month in the UK.

I am not sure about the Roku remotes as I don't have any of the newer boxes or sticks but I love the remote that comes with the nowtv sticks because they are small comfortable and can be used to control the tv to (limited to power and audio volume but still). I would buy another Roku if they use the same-ish remote and would love it even more if they add either an "external" or "okay" button for controlling the tv
