Price includes delivery to UK and import fees. Please note this one comes with a voice remote (unlike UK model). Now TV, Netflix, Amazon, ITV, 4OD, Demand 5 work. BBC iplayer will not work on this imported unit. Item comes with USA plug, but you can plug it into the usb port on a TV to power or use any mobile charger. I've had one from America for several weeks, HDR on say Netflix and Youtube works well. Voice remote works well, but it is more limited than what you might get with an Android TV box.

There is a voice remote though, something omitted from the UK version and well worth having. If you run Plex you can add iplayer to get around the channel issue.

The lack of on demand is what stops me getting one from the US. I think I'm going to go for an express with the phone app for voice if I want to. Typing on a phone app isn't bad anyway

OP - does this play nice with uk teles @ 50hz, or is it changeable in settings etc?

Unless you're still running a CRT, I don't think there is any TV now that can't cope with 60Hz NTSC signal.

it's not a case of coping, sure it will display the image, but the whole point of me asking is if this american version is fixed at 60hz or can be changed to 50hz or even auto, is because if you know anything about refresh rates for video playback, you might know that it causes 3:2 pulldown (judder) for certain PAL content, eg, sports would be jerky, 24p film content would have the wrong cadence etc which i am sensitive too and have gone through various boxes even the nvidia shield doesnt do it right across all apps!! - thus my question still stands. thanks.

Hi, when I plugged it in to my fairly modern Panasonic TV it auto detected screen refresh rates, display ratio and whether or not the TV was capable of HDR and then asks to accept. As for whether or not it can do 50hz i'm sorry I don't know. Everything I have played via Now TV, Netflix and Plex etc appear judder free, but my TV operates at 60hz.

Have you tried iPlayer recently? As this is now available in the UK there is a chance it is now supported (albeit an equal chance due to a slight difference in model number that it might not be, but worth another try I think).

Just tried it. Still does not work. If you have a Plex server you can add iplayer as a channel and access content via the free Plex app on the Roku.

I knew that. I thought modern TV deal with all that too, especially the high refresh rates ones. Oh well.

Does voice search work on Now TV? Or just Amazon and Netflix?
