    Re: Netflix app to be integrated into Sky Q and Now TV menus

    Very interesting - I am pleased that sky are following through on their promise with Q and are really treating it as a platform to build on. There isn't a massive advantage to me rolling Netflix into my Sky Sub (and I do enjoy the flexibility of no contract wiht netflix atm), and we need to see how they handle UHD/Dolby Vision content from netflix (and can you then also sign in to netflix with your sky account?) but the principle is great

    Netflix now on NOW TV streaming devices
    New devices will come with the app pre-installed, older ones can head on over to 'App store' to grab it.

    The irony there is that I could happily have Netflix on a new NowTV box, but I already hit my 4 devices enabled in total limit so I couldn't watch NowTV on one

    For those that don't know, that isn't 4 devices streaming at once (I think you are allowed 2), that is 4 devices at any time that you can stream to. Sadly a Chromecast counts as one device despite having the device I am casting from (a tablet) as an enabled device, so to watch NowTV on the small TV we have near the cross trainer takes me two devices. You can delete as many devices off your list of enabled devices you want, but you can only add one per month. An utterly frustrating limit that Netflix and Amazon just don't seem to have.

    But hey, I think I have an old NowTV box kicking around from when they did the 3 month vouchers with them, so I can use that as a Netflix streamer on my old bedroom TV now, that's quite handy. I know a few people with a pile of those old boxes

    Hmmm. I have Sky Q but I dont have the 4K Sky Q box so bit of a non started for me.

    With the netflix app on the TV I can get 4K but with the standard Sky Q box restricted to Full HD. So no point getting Netflix on Sky.
