Before you get started...

Thanks for selecting our Smart Box to take your TV viewing to the next level.

Now that your box is home, let’s start by making sure you have everything you’ll need.

Step 1: Got everything you need?

You should have the following included with your box:

  • NOW TV Smart Box
  • Remote control
  • 2 x AAA batteries
  • HDMI cable
  • Power adapter with mains plug

If any of the parts are missing, get in touch, and let us know.

You’ll also need:

  • An active NOW TV account (we’ve got this covered in step 2)
  • A broadband connection
  • A TV with an HDMI port
  • A coaxial aerial cable
  • An aerial wall socket connected to a working aerial

Step 2: Create a NOW TV account

Don’t have a NOW TV account yet? You’ll need to create one before you can start watching. (You can skip this step if you've got an account – just hit Continue below.)

If you bought a NOW TV Smart Box from a shop, with a voucher included:

Head to to create your account. Just add your voucher code to activate your Entertainment, Cinema, Kids or Sports Passes.

Already got an account?

Just head to My Account and My Passes, select the Apply a voucher link next to the Pass you've got a voucher for and enter your code.

If you just bought a Box without a voucher, you can skip Step 2 – just hit Continue below.
