A super cheap subsidised Smart TV box from Sky

Incredibly cheap ; Access to key catchup services ; Simple and intuitive to use

A little plasticky ; Inevitably pushes NOW TV

For just a tenner, this Sky Now TV player brings video on demand movies and iPlayer catch-up to any telly, no contract required

Absurd low price ; High-quality video streaming ; Range of other services

YouTube would have been nice ; No 5.1 surround sound

The arrival of the Now TV box is clear evidence that Sky is getting very serious about the rapidly evolving non-contract VoD market. It obviously doesn't believe that it's cannibalising its own pay TV services either. Now TV is, by its own admission,...

If you've been looking for a cost-effective way of adding Internet TV, be it catch-up or Video on Demand, to a non-connected telly, then Sky's new £9.99 Now TV box must seem heaven sent.

Astonishingly cheap, well-made, good selection of streaming TV services, great image quality

No 5.1 audio from Now TV content, No YouTube

The Now TV Box is not as smart as its rivals, and it suffers from its inability to connect to rivals like Netflix and Lovefilm. If you’ve got a games console or a smart TV, or can stretch £40 more for a full powered Roku, you should go with them for...

If you think the Now TV Box looks familiar, there’s a reason: it’s made by smart TV box innovator Roku, which Sky invested in last year. Indeed, barring the new white lacquer and now TV logo stamped on the top, it’s almost identical to the Roku LT set...

The Now TV Box is a rebranded Roku LT, so it suffers from the same limitations: namely, it has to connect to your router via Wi-Fi and not speedier Ethernet cable, and it can’t play back media from a USB stick. I also lacks some of its siblings’...
