      Has anyone got ITV Player on their Now TV box?

      I noticed that Sky have issued a press release stating that ITV player is being rolled out to Now TV boxes:
      ITV Player arrives on the NOW TV Box

      It does not appear to be available from the channel store yet. I have tried a manual update but it states that there are no updates available.
      Just wondered whether anyone else has received this update yet and whether automatic updates are applied while the box is powering up as I don't leave it plugged in all the time?

      This should be happening now as Sky Go now has the ITV channels included.

      This is all related to some stronger ties between ITV and Sky that includes the new channel 'ITV Encore'.

      Sadly it hasn't meant that the OD demand content has been improved. It is still limited to SD quality.

      I have after a firmware upgrade . As Scubbie says it is sd quality but it does make the now tv box a more viable option to skys' satellite service.

      Yeah I think it only appears after the firmware update.

      I guess the firmware update is being staggered so they can be sure it's suitably stable rather than risk bricking everyone's box in one go!
