Sky announces Now TV set-top box
Designed for non-Sky customers, mostly those with Freeview, Now TV launched back in 2012 but Sky is pushing on with both a new media streaming box and the best value way of getting Sky Sports on Now TV to date.
Once again based on a Rokuplayer, the new Sky Now TV Box for 2015 will be available in August and will cost £14.99. The new box includes an ethernet port instead of just Wi-Fi and a processor that is five times faster. Roku said that while it’s Roku-powered, the new Now TV Box isn’t like-for-like with any of its range of streamers.
There are also changes to the user interface which will supposedly make it easier for customers to find content.
