Now TV hits Roku: Meet the world's cheapest Sky box!


Now TV hits Roku: Meet the world's cheapest Sky box!

Now TV, Sky’s internet streaming telly service is now available from the very handy and puck-sized Roku media streamer, giving you access to offerings such as Sky Movies for a much cheaper price than a full blown Sky subscription, with even more channels and programmes slated to appear further down the line.

While the service at £8.99 a month is a bit pricier than the offerings from LoveFilm or Netflix, with Sky backing the streams you’ll be sure to get a few more quality channels available, such as Sky Sports and Sky Atlantic which are set to be available soon, for your hard-earned dosh.

Roku boxes are fairly low priced, and the compatible Roku LT and Roku 2 XS boxes are available for around £49.99 and £99.99 respectively, making a Roku + Now TV combination a well priced choice for those looking for internet-based entertainment options. Imagine being able to watch Premiership games with nothing but a tiny set top box that fits in the palm of your hand – it’s happening.

Sky has invested some big money into Roku too, so the inclusion of Now TV within the media streamer’s system is likely just the start of a much bigger plan from the two companies. Tried it out yet? Let us know how you get on in the comments below!
