With 3 sick children over the last few weeks, half term and this Beast from the East that has shut school for two days, I would have usually lost the plot. There is only so much homework, tidying, playing and cooking you can do with them before some form of screen has to be switched on.
When I was asked by the team at Now TV if I wanted to review the Now TV Box and Kids pass – As a slight technophobe (yes I know I am seem quite savvy, but the back technical end has never been my forte and the thought of actually setting up something myself – well no!) I was apprehensive but I decided to go for it!
The USP of NOW TV compared to its competitors is it has NO CONTRACT and even a monkey (me) can set it up.
Here is how to do it…
- Buy a NOW TV box (a basic one is £14.99) and a box and 3 month Kids pass is £19.99, then £2.99 per month! Bargain!
- Set up an account with NOW TV (do this before you plug your box in otherwise it is very disappointing as you plug it in then have to enter your account details and if you don’t have them there are moans all round!)
- Plug in the Now TV Box to the wall and the cable to the back of the TV
- If your internet is dodgy you can use an ethernet cable from the box to your TV
- Turn the box on, go to the HDMI channel you have plugged your box into
- Point the NOW remote at the TV and go to home
HEY PRESTO – YOU ARE IN!
The kids have watched Batman Lego Movie, Up, Boss Baby, Honey I Shrunk The Kids to name but a few. That’s on top of these fab shows.
I cannot wait to have a night in to myself to watch some absolute classics (like catching up on TOWIE and Real Housewives) and these Oscar nominated films. A film pass is only £9.99 and they do epic bundles of kids, sport, entertainment and films too.
I really want to watch SJP’s Divorce and only £7.99 for a months entertainment pass, I think that is value for money!!
By the way, once you have an account, you can watch Now TV on your phone, tablet and computer… those car journeys will now be a breeze!
