Now TV (presented as NOW TV) is a telecommunications company with operations in the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, and Italy. Now TV provides contract-free subscription internet television, broadband internet, and landline telephone services. The majority of services available by Now TV are designed to cater for consumers who do not want to be tied to a contract.[4]

Now TV was first announced in the UK in February 2012 as an internet television service, and launched on 17 July 2012 originally offering a Sky Cinema subscription; from March 2013 offering a Sky Sports television channels subscription;[5] from October 2013 offering an entertainment television channels subscription;[6] from June 2016 offering a children's television channels subscription.[7] On 24 June 2016 the Now TV internet television service was launched in Italy.[8] On 29 June 2016, Now Broadband was launched in the UK.[9] On 26 April 2017 the Now TV internet television service was launched in the Republic of Ireland.[10] From July 2018 Now TV started offering a Hayu video on demand subscription.[11] Now Broadband is not currently available in Ireland or Italy with no future plans announced.

Accessing Now TV television content[edit]

Television content is available on a number of different platforms providing access via big screen and small screen mobile devices.[12] In the UK, Ireland and Italy four devices can be registered onto one Now TV account. In the UK and Ireland two devices can stream Now TV content at the same time as standard;[13] in Italy this is possible by subscribing to the "Option +" subscription.[14] The service currently offers streaming of up to 720p resolution depending on the playback device and uses adaptive bitrate streaming to minimise disruption.[15] In January 2018 Now TV in the UK and Ireland announced that by the end of 2018 consumers will be able to stream Now TV television content in 1080p resolution on all playback devices supporting that resolution. 720p live streaming and 1080p video on demand content is offered on Now TV in Italy as an optional extra subscription. In January 2018 Now TV in the UK and Ireland announced that consumers will be able to download on demand content on their mobile devices for offline access to content while on the go and/or for smoother playback for those with slower internet connections: this feature will start being rolled out during spring 2018.[16]

Now TV proprietary devices[edit]

Four propriety Now TV boxes and one proprietary streaming stick have been launched. The Now TV "White" Box is no longer officially available as it is succeeded by the Now TV "Black" Box. All of the Now TV boxes and the Now TV Streaming Stick provide access to live television channel streams and video on demand content courtesy of the available Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, and Kids Passes. There is limited access to the Roku Channel Store in which an approved list of application software can be downloaded such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, Sky Sports Box Office and the Sky Store. Users were able to side-load apps via developer mode, but this was disabled by Sky in March 2017.[19]

In July 2013 Now TV launched the Now TV "white" box (based on the 2011 Roku LT) allowing consumers when connected to Wi-Fi to stream Now TV content to their television via an analogue audio/video output or an HDMI connection capable of outputting up to 720p video resolution.[20]

In August 2015 Now TV launched the Now TV "black" Box (based on the 2015 Roku 2). It offers the same user interface as the original Now TV "white" box, but with updated technical specifications such as a higher performance CPU, an Ethernet port (in addition to Wi-Fi), a USB port (not currently functional), a microSD card slot (not currently functional), the capability of outputting up to 1080p video resolution via an HDMI connection.[21]. It does not have an analogue audio/video output connection like its "white" box predecessor. The Now TV "black" Box is currently the only Now TV device available in Ireland and Italy.

In July 2016 Now TV launched the first generation Now TV Smart Box (based on the 2015 Roku 4) providing the same access as previous boxes, but with updated technical specifications, such as a higher performance CPU and an internal DVB-T/DVB-T2 digital terrestrial television tuner giving the ability to access Freeview and Freeview HD television channels that can be paused and rewound up to 30 minutes. Red Button and interactive services are accessible by pressing the asterisk () button on the Now TV remote control.[22]

In February 2018 Now TV launched the Now TV Smart Stick (based on the 2017 Roku Streaming Stick). It is quick and easy to plug it into any display with an HDMI port and offers plug and play portability. The Now TV "Smart Stick" is the first Now TV device to include a Wi-Fi Direct remote control with voice search allowing users to search movies and shows by name, or by favourite actors or directors, by talking into the "Smart Stick" remote. Apps can also be launched via voice search by users saying the name of the app they wish to launch. The Now TV "Smart Stick" has a feature called "Hotel connect" which allows users to connect to Wi-Fi networks that require signing in to the Wi-Fi network through a web browser.

In September 2018 Now TV launched the second generation Now TV Smart Box (Based around the 2016 Roku Premiere+). The second generation Smart box is much smaller in size compared to it's original predecessor mainly due to the removal of the internal DVB-T/DVB-T2 digital terrestrial television tuner that gave it the ability to access Freeview and Freeview HD television channels. The new Smart box features the same Wi-Fi Direct remote control with voice search that is included with the Now TV Smart Stick. The new Smart Box is capable of outputting at up to 2160p (4K) at 60fps.[23]

Consumers who want custom protection can manually allow or block access to specific websites or website categories and can also set Now "Broadband Buddy" to automatically change the 18 age rating setting on and off at a particular time of each day. Both phishing and malware protection is available to prevent the collection of private information without permission while browsing the internet, and to prevent viruses infecting any devices in use.[49]
