NOW TV is a solid TV service that delivers the best entertainment, sports and movies directly to your TV in a no-fuss way. The NOW TV box is small and discreet, and easy to navigate with its own remote. The service is cheap and flexible and gives you access to loads of great movies, sports and shows at a cheap price.
The main downside is that you need an internet connection to view your content, and the service is not available offline. But if you’re looking for more flexibility or control in your television, then NOW TV might be exactly what you’re looking for.
