      Now tv getting voice search and new homepage

      See in the financials today that Now TV will be getting voice search, a new homepage and a re-launch on international OTT platform.

      All mentioned on page 33 in the results presentation;
      https://corporate.sky.com/documents/...esentation.pdf

      Do the current two black boxes have the capability to allow this new voice search, or will it need a new box?

      I would think a new box with a new remote to capture the voice input and send it to the box for processing (which may be send it via the internet to the server for remote processing and return of results).

      I thought the now tv was just a clone of the Roku, the Roku 3 had voice control back in 2013 did it not.

      Yes it did, but I suppose the question is whether or not all those NOW TV black boxes out in the field are fully up to the same spec as a Roku 3.

      I don't think Sky will miss an opportunity to sell a "new" box to everybody who wants that new technology!

      In fact, now I think about "something" from a few months back, I think there will be a new NOW TV black box.
