The channels are available from today via the dedicated £10 NowTV box, the Roku app, PS3 and on desktop platforms. They'll be added to the NowTV mobile app, Xbox and LG Smart TVs soon.
This sounds like a stunning deal to us and opens up key channels to people on decent internet connections without the need for cable or satellite boxes under their TV.
nternet TV takes another major step forward today as some of the UK’s most popular entertainment channels join NOW TV as part of a brand new, pay-as-you-go service.
