The weekend before Christmas is always a chillout zone in our house. By that point I have usually finished everything bar the food shopping (which is only applicable if we are staying at ours for Christmas) and we are all needing by this point to stop and take 5. But, thanks to NowTV, we were able to stop and take far more than 5 when they sent us a beautiful hamper and asked us to take part in their #myonesieland event.
The hamper which we received included a beautiful tin holding some tasty shortbread biscuits, a rather posh tin of luxury hot chocolate, chocolate covered popcorn, two packs of yummy cheese bites, a pannetone, a mug holding some candy canes, a gorgeous box of chocolates and THREE onesies. Ross and Grace both got Elf outfits and I was a Christmas pudding!
On top of all those lovely goodies, we received a very limited edition Now TV box. Normally they come in white, but ours was this:
A Lego Movie edition!
The watchalong took place between 3.30 and 5.30pm and it was a showing of Muppets Most Wanted. We had seen this film back on Mothers Day in March and we loved it so we were more than happy to see it again.
We settled in with our hot chocolates and all our nibbles and had a wonderfully relaxing and very comfortable afternoon.
The Now TV box was really easy to set up. All I had to do was plug it into the mains and into the HDM socket on our TV and then follow the instructions. We were able to set it up using our existing WiFi and entering the password. I also had to create an account online in order to get us started.
Not only are there all the usual catch up channels on Now TV but you are able to sign up for various Sky packages including Entertainment, Movies and Sport – all of which are on a monthly basis which means you are not tied into a contract. I consider this a major benefit after all the issues I have faced with various contract providers. The only thing I would add to help your Now TV experience is the ability to search alphabetically. Apart from that, we love it! The movies package has been very well used so far.
Disclosure: We were sent a hamper of luxury items, 3 onesies and a Now TV with a pass to a month’s worth of Sky Movies in return for this review, however, all words and opinions are our own and have not been influenced in any way.
