Sky announces limited edition Now TV designs for Christmas

Sky has has announced a range of new themed Now TV boxes aimed at capturing the Christmas spirit.

These five new Now TV boxes are functionally identical to the default white Now TV box, but sport bright new limited edition designs.

Sky calls them “the ideal stocking filler” for this festive period. Better put those marble maze games and tiny packets of Haribo back under the bed before you embarrass yourself.

As for the new designs themselves, one features The Lego Movie, while the rest are a little more generic. They’re no less bright though – one has a glittery gold finish all over (including the remote control) one has a large penguin on it (no idea), one looks a bit like a smartphone wallpaper (all geometric shapes), and the final one has lots of colourful lightning bolt motifs spread across it.

As mentioned, all of these designs extend to the remote control as well as the box itself.

These new limited edition Now TV box design go on sale from November 24 for £9.99 each, and can be bought direct from the Now TV website.

The Now TV box is Sky’s effort to get its programming into homes that don’t have a Sky subscription. Beyond that, though, it’s essentially a cheap way to turn any TV into a smart TV, providing catch-up channels like the BBC iPlayer and 4OD alongside online services such as YouTube, Spotify, and Facebook.
