Staff Reporter | On 27, Nov 2013Reading time: 3 mins
The NOW TV Box – the simple little device that turns your TV into a smart TV for less than a tenner – just got even better today with the arrival of 4oD, the popular catch up service from Channel 4.
Owners of a NOW TV box can now get comprehensive access to the best of Channel 4 on demand through their box, to catch up on the latest Channel 4 shows, including Homeland, Agents of SHIELD and Made in Chelsea, as well as box sets from classic series such as Black Books, Father Ted and Peep Show all on their main TV set.
4oD is the latest terrestrial catch-up TV service to launch on the NOW TV Box, which already offers access to BBC iPlayer and Demand 5, adding over 3000-hours of content to the NOW TV box for customers to enjoy at no additional cost. With an Entertainment Month Pass customers can enjoy 10 of the UK’s best pay TV channels including Sky Atlantic, Fox, Discovery and Comedy Central live and on demand with TV Box Sets and Catch Up TV.
Gidon Katz, Director of NOW TV, comments: “The NOW TV Box provides millions of people with the opportunity to transform their regular TV into a Smart TV for less than a tenner. There is now even more to watch. The launch of 4oD means the NOW TV Box delivers an even bigger choice of on-demand TV. It’s available alongside flexible pay-as-you-go access to must-see sport, the latest movies you missed at the cinema and the TV shows everyone’s talking about. Offering convenient, contract-free access to such outstanding content, it’s no wonder that NOW TV Boxes have been flying off the shelves.”
Laurence Dawkin-Jones, Director of Commercial and Business Development at Channel 4 comments: “Bringing 4oD on the NOW TV Box represents the latest device launch in a busy year for Channel 4 that has seen us extend our content reach to many new platforms. We’re always looking for new places we can ensure our viewers can enjoy our popular on-demand service, and are delighted to add this to the portfolio.”
