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

Now TV Smart Box with 4K review: Now TV Boost finally adds Full HD streaming and 5.1 surround sound

 

The Now TV Smart Box is feature-packed and easy to use but you'll need additional services for 4K playback

Affordable ; Runs up to 4K HDR at 60fps ; Voice control works well

Doesn’t support Dolby Atmos or DTS:X ; Only supports up to 720p live television ; Doesn’t have Freeview built-in

If you’re looking for a 4K streamer, Now TV’s Smart Box is definitely a decent option. It now, at last, supports Netflix and can deliver that content in 4K, which is great news for those struggling with clunky on-TV apps or having to switch to other...

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.

Now TV review: Full HD streaming and 5.1 surround sound are finally here with Now TV Boost

 

With Now TV Boost, viewers can enjoy much more content at 1080p – it's still far off the 4K HDR of its rivals, though

Live TV with Entertainment Pass ; Unrivalled movie offering via Cinema Pass ; Flexible package choice – if you don't want certain content, you don't pay for it

Sports Pass can be pricey ; Only 720p with standard packages

Whether you receive Now TV through Sky’s Now TV Smart Box, its Smart Stick or one of the many other streaming devices that support the service, it has to be applauded for its flexibility. It has some great content at very reasonable prices but whether...

SKY NOW TV Smart Stick review

  (Rating Hidden)

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...
