From what I've read of the early Now TV box it outputs at 60Hz instead of 50Hz, which causes issues with many TV's in the UK. It appears some are better than others in handling the resultant choppy pic quality. As I understand it the newer Now TV Smart box outputs at 50Hz so would provide a steadier picture. Either way 720p should provide a sharper pic than SD.

If you can't see some sort of improvement between 720p and sd there is definitely an issue with your setup. Even a good 4k tv will give more than decent results with 720p.

 

Indeed the newer Now TV Smart boxes are much better at handling motion issues etc than their predecessor for the very reason @Hunter2660 points out, the old boxes output at 60Hz with the newer one outputting a much more UK friendly 50Hz.

The way I look at it is if the BT price doesn't decrease on Tuesday I will be giving NOW TV a go. If I discover that the picture is not acceptable then I can move back to getting my Sky Sports fix through BT. That's the beauty of a month by month contract from NOW TV.

I would say the black NOW TV box or for more content (i.e. Nexflix, Amazon Prime etc) Roku 2 or 3 boxes.

Hi Everyone 

 

This is a reminder that the BT community forums are intended for the discussion of BT products and services of which Now TV doesn't fall into so I would ask that you please do not discuss it's features or pricing here. 

 

Thanks

Neil

We're only discussing NOW TV because we all feel that BT plan to overprice the Sky Sports Main Event channel.

Why is this?

Because BT are the only provider refusing to release their pricing structure prior to launch!!
