new roku streaming stick (2016) 2

Now TV has come to Roku's universal search feature. That means that if you fire up your Roku streaming box and enter a search term in the universal search feature, it'll scour Now TV as well as other services without you having to open the app and trawl through.

Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play are already available in Roku's universal search. The addition of Now TV bolsters the feature, making it more useful than ever.

If you can't find a film or TV show on any of these services, chances are it's not available to stream anywhere.

You can also 'follow' content using Roku Search, meaning you'll be able to easily find it to watch later.

Now TV brings together the best of Sky's channels on a contract-free, pay-as-you basis. You can shell out for a monthly Entertainment Pass, for example, giving you access to Sky's entertainment channels like Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic, buy a Movies Pass, or opt in for a daily, weekly or monthly Sports Pass.

It also recently started offering the series '11.22.63', based on Stephen King's book of the same name.

Sky has confirmed a new Now TV Box is coming later this year, and it's rumoured to be able to record shows.
