Sky Now TV box without Sky?
English

Hi

 

If I get the £10 Sky Now TV box, can I just use it to add the free catch up services (iPlayer etc) without paying any subscription to Sky?

 

Thanks

Hope you get one that works, the customer service is absolute rubbish.

My remote was DOA, reported it via the online chat, not even going into detail but pants.

Hi Roger - this paragraph is from the cnet review:

Interestingly, you don't have to add your credit-card details for the box until you want to buy a Sky Sports day pass or a Sky Movies monthly pass. You can happily use the box just for watching iPlayer or Demand 5 without worrying about entering payment details at all.


The owls are not what they seem...
