Sky’s NOW TV box turns your TV into a smart TV at a small price. And Tesco Direct is giving you 100 extra Clubcard points on top. Due to a Tesco website glitch, the site is (at present, although it will probably be corrected at some point) adding 200 points instead of the promised 100!
The NOW TV box lets you watch Sky channels without a contract and also streams catch up TV straight to your TV.
There are three packs to choose from depending on whether you prefer sports, entertainment or movies. These passes offer excellent value for money even if you ignore the value of the Now TV box – £15 is not a bad price to pay to get access to Sky Movies for two months, for example.
The NOW TV box has been upgraded in August 2015 and now streams in HD, features an ethernet port for wired connection and claims to be 5 times faster than the previous version.
The only downside is that it won’t let you watch Netflix or Amazon Prime videos. If those are the streaming services you are using, an Amazon Firestick would be a better buy (or Google Chromecast if you only want to watch Netflix videos and not Amazon Prime). And as Rob wrote end of December, Tesco also currently does a bonus Clubcard points and money off deal with Google Chromecast.
The Now TV deal runs until 17th January – although I would expect the ‘extra’ 100 points to disappear before then.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points? Click here to visit the Shopper Points home page for the latest news and offers. Come back every day for new deals or join our email list.
