In my last post, I talked about the available apps on NOW TV Smart Box and how you can download them. This post brings good news in a different dimension as NOW TV recently announced a new technology known as the NOW TV Smart Stick, which will be available for purchase towards the end of February 2018. The NOW TV Smart Stick price goes for just £14.99, and you can get some other details of this device as you read on.
The NOW TV Smart Stick is powered by Roku, and it now gives users the opportunity to pause live TV on all NOW TV’s premium channels including FOX, Sky Sports, Sky Atlantic and Central. It also give users access to some of the United Kingdom catch-up services like BBC, ITH Hub, iPlayer and All 4. You can also download over 50 apps to your NOW TV Smart Box, and I gave the full list in my previous post.
The NOW TV Smart Stick is also the first device that comes with a remote featuring Voice Search Technology, and this can help you to quickly find your favourite movies, shows, actors or directors.
The NOW TV Smart Stick provides a low cost option to transform a “dumb” TV or HDMI equipped monitor into a “smart” TV. You should also note that the main reason for this device is to drive viewers to Sky’s content. Competitors like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are still not supported on this platform.
The following monthly access are available on NOW TV, and you can simply buy anyone of your choice. Their prices are also listed as well, so you can easily make a choice depending on your pocket size.
