Is NOW TV App available on Tivo? If not is it worth getting a Now TV box for Sky Atlantic etc.

I want to understand whether I can watch Now TV through Virgin Tivo.  I want to be able to watch Sky Atlantic but want to watch it through the TV.  Do you need a Now TV box?  Is it compatible with a Tivo Box?  A real dumb question here.  Can I link my laptop up to TV to watch Now TV through my laptop?   Thankss

No  you can't watch it through TiVo. There's no app for it.

To do this you'll need a now tv box. I have one. You pay a one time fee then pay monthly to have either movies, tv or sport or if you want all three. I just have movies and tv. Think it's about £16pm 

 

 Do you need a Now TV box?  Is it compatible with a Tivo Box?

 

 

you simply connect the now to box via HDMI to your telly run the set up and off you go. It doesn't go through the TiVo at all

Honestly don't know about this. There is a now tv forum you could try for an answer. 

 

As for whether it's worth it, it really depends. I watch a lot of movies and the first odd tv series so I reckon I get my monies worth. You can also use it to watch iplayer and itv, c4 and c5 catchup.

I got Now tv to watch Game of Thrones on Atlantic, £6.99 a month, wouldn't have to do this if we were not being held to ransom to watch decent tv by virgin, bt and sky, only other choice is to illegally download Smiley Sad
