In the summer of 2013, Sky launched a small, Roku-manufactured £10 streaming box. And frankly, for the cost, we thought it was a pretty reliable way to turn your boring old TV into a ‘smart TV’.
Today, the company revealed in its annual financial statement that a “next-generation” Now TV box will be arriving later this year. As part of the update the UI will also be revamped.
News of the updated box comes as Sky reports a nearly 50 percent increase in the number of download and streaming requests (1.91 billion in 2014, up from 1.2 billion in 2013) from across its on-demand platforms.
