MUMBAI: Sky’s online TV streaming service Now TV will be launching its most advanced TV box later this year. The new Now TV Smart Box will bring together Now TV’s wide range of pay TV content and over 60 live free-to-air channels.


Now TV worked with Silicon Valley based Roku Inc. to develop the new Now TV Smart Box, which will sit alongside the existing Now TV Box. The pricing details and further information will be made available later in the year. 


Additionally customers with a Now TV Box will see new a brand new interface (UI) roll out to their TVs from February. The new-look UI will include a number of new features including a content-rich homepage offering editorial recommendations of what to watch across catch up TV apps and pay TV content from Now TV. A new ‘Best of Catch Up’ section, curated by content partners, will also arrive showcasing all the best shows our customers may have missed in one place.


Now TV director Gidon Katz said, “The launch of our new homepage on the Now TV Box will make it easier than ever for our customers to quickly find and watch their favourite shows. And when the new Now TV Smart Box arrives later this year, it will be the perfect one-stop box to get a contract-free, flexible way of watching the best of pay TV and free-to-air content all in one place.”
