Does this depend on your internet for tv? Do you get all the free view channels or just the select few? The reason I ask is I don't have a coax at home

If they'd kept plex available I'd have replaced all my streamers with these, I used to use nowTV boxes in every room as you could have 4 on an account and watch the movies on 2 at once so a single sub did the house. As I also use plex though I had to replace everything when they cut support, shame as nowTV itself is pretty cheap for what it is

Told you, you get 2 months Movie Pass with it ha ha you can watch The Little Mermaid over and over again!

I got one of these yesterday, mostly for the Freeview function. The Now TV stuff works as expected, but I was disappointed with how limited the TV guide and selector was. It also seems to struggle with weaker signals compared to a TV (a significant number of channels show "no signal"). I'm thinking of returning it to John Lewis.

I'm lucky to have strong signal where I am so that's great but I make you right the remote is limited as is the guide. I like the way though you can select Freeview and Nowtv channels from the guide button.

You're going to need at least an indoor aerial to watch live freeview.
You get all the free to air freeview channels, including the sometimes hard to get Talking Pictures.
If you don't have an aerial, you can use the apps to watch catch up TV from channels 1 to five and a lot more besides, but sadly the UK TV player is currently missing. A complete list of Now TV Apps can be found here.

These are great little boxes I use ethernet wired so no problems with signal, got mine for £35 pass and five months of tv, was leaving and got three months half price, GOT's for £3.99 will cancel when done... still use catchup services. Great little box for the money....

Fraid not, they removed all competition. Shame as its a great box, but I only want one unit per TV

Managed to pick one up at £35 with the 4 month cinema pass from JL a few weeks ago thanks to HUKD so keep a look out for that.
Sold the box for £25 so happy with what I paid for the pass.

I have a question. I have nowtv & sky go app on my smart TV. How is this beneficial besides the free movies and free rewind feature?

Can you record sky atlantic programmes?

This doubles as a Freeview box and steaming box so not much different from your TV as you pointed out. There are no free movies as you are paying for the pass.

Can you still use the apps on the box once the pass has expired or do you need a valid pass to access all the functionality?

You can still use the apps

You can buy the Roku box without restrictions for Netflix etc but they cost a lot more.

Basically the same plastic box. Providing the same services. And they've made it so you can't modify the boxes

Educate yourself! How is it the same box if you can plug an Aerial in one and receive Freeview HD and the other one you can't! Wow
