Kenneth, LUTON, Beds Cheapskate cranky old git.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Cheap and easy to install.
Bad points:
This box is intended to drive the purchaser towards paying lots of money to Sky. After a half hour of looking through the services that are available free of charge, I had only identified BBC I-player and a similar service from Channel 5. OK, for a tenner that's not bad, but I personally am unlikely to use it a lot.
This device may be more popular with people who are rich, and want to see lots of Sky Sports and movies, and the many US TV channels that appear to be on offer via the Now TV box..

Benedict, Cheltenham

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
In theory great content
Bad points:
Cannot view half of the prime content due to this infamous Error 1300 which has not been resolved for a week now. Basically am watching the programmes that I bought the Now TV to view drop on and off the listings whilst being unable to actually view them due to this error. You cannot have a nationwide all consumer technical error preventing viewing for over a week on a pay monthly service. Abysmal
