NOW TV Now TV Box 2 – 1080P-YouTube – ITV Player – BBC iPlayer – 4OD – 5Demand … : Flashes and flickers

Excellent purchase and fast delivery .

Seems to do the job for a good price. One has to sign up and cancel for a sky subscription. Very dubious about doing this but given an assurance from seller i went ahead. Have not the time to watch sky offerings now but this allows me to take ashes viewing if required. Valexander of allrighters and ywnwab.

Works as it should although on arrival had been opened before.

For those of you new to now tv – this is the box to get – better than its predecessor and works like lightening for catch-up. Picture quality is great and sport in regular hd is still fine especially at a fraction of the cost of a sky subscription.

  • Its a Roku box so excellent
  • Good buy given qualification below.
  • better than wifi only model

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 5x faster processing, making it smoother and speedier.
  • An Ethernet port giving you another way to get online, as well as Wi-Fi.
  • No contract.
  • Watch your favourite shows on BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5, and add awesome apps like Sky News, BBC News, YouTube and Spotify.

With the cable connection, more reliable than wifi. Mainly use for f1 on now tv.

Brilliant piece of kit, was sceptical at first as some of review say it don’t work but i have to say my works perfectly and will be ordering another one and very easy to use.

Works perfectly,we needed it for upstairs to watch some movies etc. Good wireless reception,good interface.

Generally very pleased, had some issues setting up the account but product is good.

Arrived all in good order and on time easy to set up really good.

This is a roku box so excellent quality and performance. In fact it appears to be subsidised so you get a roku box at a price less than the regular box although not full featured but ok for all uk catch up etc. Roku boxes have one defect: having finished one episode you often cannot move on to the next but have to restart the process by going to the channel and working through the menu again.

I bought this (black) now tv box to replace the white now tv box (earlier edition) which started out ok but went downhill rapid (locking up, unable to play iplayer and rebooting randomly). I’m pleased to say that this new upgraded box responds much faster, was installed in seconds and plays bbc iplayer perfectly. It hasn’t crashed yet either. Very much better than the original now tv box.

Join amazon prime, and play all the most popular movies, for next to nothing.

This is great for the price thanks.

Works well with most of the apps. However when trying to watch live tv it freezes & we have to come out of it & go back through menu again which is annoying but it works well for everything else we want it for. Would be great if it included netflix but we knew it didn’t & have that on alternate devices so can’t complain. Just be handy to have it all on 1.

Bought as replacement for rook stick.

Very pleased with the product.

I purchased this as a next box to use with tv in a bed room. Simple to set up and operates fantastic.

As described rapidly shipping and delivery aaa+++.

Flashes and glints which is bothersome, it truly is connected wi-fi but suggests signal strength is fantastic, it is really only 7ft away from the super hub, i considered it it’s possible a faulty hdmi socket on my new tv so i swapped it to one more hdmi socket and the machine i swapped it with works best and the now tv box flashes and flickers on any hdmi socket, so no strategy how to resolve the trouble.

Very best bit of kit ive experienced in a lengthy time.

Operates very well but voucher for free month membership was missing other than that it is great.

Works fantastic on 5meg difficulty no cost.

  1. Flashes and flickers which is annoying, it’s connected wireless but says signal strength is excellent, it’s only 7ft away from the super hub, i thought it maybe a faulty hdmi socket on my new tv so i swapped it to another hdmi socket and the device i swapped it with works perfect and the now tv box flashes and flickers on any hdmi socket, so no idea how to fix the problem.

    I got this to replace an older white box. The 1080p output is much better than the 720p the old white box gave out, plus it is much faster at moving through the apps, also having an ethernet port is a nice feature as wired is always faster than wireless. One sidenote however is that this box didn’t connect to my virgin superhub 2 at first. So what i had to do was press home x5 fast forward x1 play x1 rewind x1 play x1 then fast forward x1 this brings up the hidden menu. Then select systems operations menu and dissable network pings. Then i went back into the connections menu and it connected to the virgin router fine.

    1. Easy to install product and linked in quickly with wifi etc. Bit frustrating it was 9 months out of date so had to spend 10 minutes updating itself but apart from that it was brilliant.

    Replaced a very laggy white box (particularly for bbc iplayer) with the black box. My wife says the white box should still work but technology moves on and the black box is far better. One gotcha i didn’t expect is that there is a four device limit on your account and you can only replace one a month so if you buy several upgrades bear that in mind.

    1. Really delighted with picture quality and the option of just paying when i’m actually around to watch the box.

    Basically a cheap roku with only half the apps,no netflix and no way to go online and add more. Supported by sky tv so of course they want you to use sky products. It is hard to find any live tv channels and it is just the basic 5 channels unless you pay for the entertainment package which to be honest is not worth the money. In my opinion you would be better off spending the extra £20 a get the 2nd gen amazon fire stickwhich includes all the apps and a great tv live player.

    I have two now tv boxes ( 4 allowed) with entertainment ( for box sets) and movies, both work on each other so i have all in two bedrooms. If you live in ireland ,set it up with a uk account and use a vpn .
