Sky have just revealed their brand new Now TV box, the unit is supposed to be beefed up performance wise and offer a much smoother user experience. Sky are saying that it's 5x faster than the original, which would be a welcomed upgrade. As you can see from the image, the new box resembles the Roku 3. This could mean 1080p streaming may become an option in the future and with the addition of an ethernet socket, if your wifi connection is lacking for higher resolutions you now have a back up solution. The new unit will be available this August for £14.99.
Sky also announced that there will be a new monthly subscription for Sky Sports fans at £31.99 per month. The current day pass is £6.99 while the weekly pass sits at £10.99 this means that new monthly subscription will save you £11.97 over buying four of the week passes. That said though, £31.99 really is a lot of money to part with considering there are possibly better options for a little more per month if you want to sign up for a full on Sky subscription.
If you fancy grabbing the current Now TV box along with a subscription from £9.99, these are the current cheapest and well worth considering due to the savings on the passes alone.
