Now TV Smart Stick Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Now TV Smart Stick review: At just £15, the Now TV Smart Stick is the UK's cheapest streaming device – but can 720p streams cut it in a world moving to 4K?

Great value ; Easy to navigate ; No-commitment access to Sky content ; Netflix

Now TV only streams in 720p for now ; No Amazon ; Interface a little slow

A great tool for non-committal Sky TV fans on a budget, the lack of Full HD content is a shame, but it's nice to finally see Netflix arrive on the platform.

Sky Now TV Box review

 

Low price ; iPlayer and catch-up apps for free ; Spotify and PPV Sky Movies and Sky Sports ; Easy to use

No remote app ; No Sky HD content ; Video only goes up to 720p ; Limited app offering

Still a great, affordable way into smart TV, but the Now TV Box is outgunned by the competition

Sky NowTV Smart Box review

 

Ditch the dish - NowTV's got all the Sky channels you really want to watch

Free-to-air TV and all four major catch-up channels ; Satellite-free Sky streaming ; Cheap but not nasty

720p only - you’ll need Sky Q for Full HD or better ; Subscriptions for Sports and Movies are still gonna cost you

720p streaming ain’t great, but otherwise the NowTV Smart Box will scratch that streaming itch

Contract-free TV, broadband, and calls? That's a tough deal to ignore

Sky Now TV Box (2015) review

 

Now in its second generation, the Sky Now TV Box is a Roku in disguise at a bargain price.

For under £15 and various value bundles, the second generation Sky Now TV Box is a great budget media streamer. It not only allows contract-free access to a wide range of Sky content but also a number of other apps including BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub....

Sky Now TV Box review: Sky's updated streamer has a Netflix-sized hole, but it's only £15

 

Sky's added an Ethernet port to its little streamer, but there's still no access to Netflix or Amazon shows.

The £15 Sky Now TV Box is a cheap and easy-to-use way to get on-demand Sky programmes, as well as catch-up from terrestrial channels. The Ethernet port is a great addition.

There are no Netflix or Amazon Prime Instant Video apps. Sky services only stream in 720p resolution and movie rentals are standard-definition only.

Sky's new Now TV box is a dirt-cheap way to get on-demand movies and TV shows from Sky and UK terrestrial channels, but heavy-duty streamers will find the lack of Netflix and Amazon apps frustrating.

SKY NOW TV Smart Stick review

The company's first new internet TV box in more than 18 months, the Now TV Smart Stick is also Sky's first streaming stick. It's the first to feature 1080p Full-HD playback and voice recognition too, as well as being its cheapest ever. Can it match the...

NOW TV is Sky's Freeview and on-demand service, and the Sky NOW TV Smart Box is its brand's internet TV box. With such a powerful name behind it and so many apps and services available, there's a lot of expectation surrounding it. Does it live up to...

SKY NOW TV (2015) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sky NOW TV streamer is a convenient way for non-Sky consumers to access its raft of programming and channels. It's also one of the cheapest streamers on the market, although you'll need to purchase a pass to access any content. We took it to our...
