“Combining World Cup action and award winning soaps with the flexibility to dip in and out of great movies, entertainment or sport from NOW TV, our little box has all bases covered.’
Martin Goswami, Director of Pay & Distribution at ITV, added: “A key part of our strategy is to make our content available to viewers on multiple devices, and we are delighted to offer NOW TV customers the chance to catch up on their favourite ITV programmes with the NOW TV Box.”
