Netflix now on NOW TV streaming devices as NOW TV launches its most powerful Smart Box yet
From today, the Netflix app launches on NOW TV streaming devices, meaning you can now easily watch all your favourite shows in one place.
Simply sign-up or sign-in to your Netflix account on device and you can easily hop between NOW TV Entertainment Pass blockbusters like A Discovery of Witches, The Walking Dead and Patrick Melrose and Netflix Originals such as The Crown, Stranger Things and Queer Eye.
As well as adding Netflix to the wide range of apps already available, NOW TV also revealed the launch of its most powerful ever streaming device – the NOW TV Smart Box with 4K & Voice Search.
Available from September 26th, the Roku Powered NOW TV Smart Box with 4K & Voice Search offers 4K Ultra HD streaming at up to 60fps, with HDR delivering true to life colours and outstanding clarity – perfect for those with a Premium Netflix account who fancy a night in watching Orange is the New Black or Glow in 4K.
Voice Search also comes with the new NOW TV Smart Box so you can quickly find your favourite shows, films, actors, directors and apps. Plus Live Pause technology ensures you don’t miss any of the action on NOW TV’s premium live channels including Sky Sports, FOX, Comedy Central and Sky Atlantic.
Priced at £45.99 the NOW TV Smart Box with 4K & Voice Search is the lowest priced 4K streaming device in the UK and is available from nowtv.com. It will also be available bundled with a month’s Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Kids and Sky Sports Day Pass for just £49.99 from major retailers including Argos and Currys PCWorld.
Gidon Katz, Managing Director of NOW TV, commented on the addition of Netflix and the new 4K: “With 4K and Voice Search the powerful new NOW TV Smart Box gets you to your favourite shows faster than ever and lets you explore the expanding world of 4K content across our apps. Plus, settle in and stream the shows you love all in one place as we end the struggle with TV inputs by adding Netflix to our NOW TV Smart Stick and Smart Box.”
