NOW TV: Smart TV at a smart price

Just about everything nowadays seems to carry the 'smart' tag. Most of the time, that means a hefty price tag in exchange for very little extra functionality.

The Smart TV is the latest to join in on the fun. Loaded with streaming capabilities, catch up services and movie rental offerings. The drawback? You need well over £1,000 sat happily in your bank account to bring one home to the living room.

What if you are already happy with your TV but fancy giving this smart stuff a go?

You have two choices; either hook a laptop up to the screen, leave cables strewn across the living room floor and sit back and watch how your teenager reacts when the family computer is used for watching the football rather than browsing Facebook.

Or, you could always just opt for the NOW TV Box. At £9.99, it's the affordable one-box solution for bringing the majority of smart tech to your TV, for a fraction of the price.

In a nutshell, the Now TV Box brings contract-free BBC iPlayer and Demand 5. You also get both the BBC and Sky News apps to enjoy. All for a single payment of £9.99 for the Box.

Fancy splashing out a bit more? Then the door is open to the entire NOW TV offering. What does this offer you ask?

NOW TV is like a one-stop shop for all your favourite movies, TV shows and sports.

You can opt to purchase one-day subscriptions to the full six-channel Sky Sports experience at just £9.99 a pop, letting you watch that crucial match when mates come over but saving on the cost of the full monthly package.

Movie fans can go for the Sky Movies pass, which brings you more of the latest and biggest movies in the comfort of your living room. NOW TV has the added bonus of beating Netflix and LoveFilm Instant to the punch when it comes to releases, sometimes by as much as 12 months.

For the money, the beer mat-sized NOW TV Box is a very impressive piece of kit. You don't even need to go beyond the initial £9.99 outlay should you fancy just bringing a touch of iPlayer to your sofa.

Those who splash out for NOW TV's own packages, however, will find a class-leading array of on-demand movie content and live sports, all available to watch via the NOW TV box.
