Things are moving fast in the land of On Demand TV and it's hard to know which provider to go with or whether you even want a TV provider these days with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime available.
NOW TV have gone and made things very handy indeed however with the launch of their new Smart Stick. It's basically a portable device you can plug in anywhere that will turn any TV into a Smart TV without any contract or subscription.
You can pick up the Smart Stick in most of Ireland's big retailers (including Harvey Norman, Argos and Tesco) and after that you buy an Entertainment Pass, a Sky Cinema Pass, a Sky Sports Pass or a Kids Pass.
The Entertainment Pass gives you access to over 300 box sets as well as On Demand content from the likes of 3player and All 4. The Cinema Pass will give you access to over 1,000 movies with premieres every day while with the Sky Sports Pass you can watch up to 10 Sky Sports channels. Finally, the Kids Pass has thousands of ad-free kids TV episodes on demand
Netflix will also be accessible with Now TV later in the year, while other bonuses include a remote featuring voice search technology and soon you will be able to download shows to watch later offline.
The NOW TV Smart Stick is available to buy online for €25 from Monday, 18th June or from €39.99 when bundled with a NOW TV Pass.
