Now TV Smart Box

We've been besotted with Now TV's low-cost, flexible approach to TV streaming since it first launched in 2013; new this year is a slightly bigger box that adds an extra layer of functionality while still keeping the price tag sensible (£40). So what is the new trick, exactly? A digital TV tuner. Not 4K playback, then, but it does make the Now TV hardware all-encompassing when it comes to telly content, integrating PPV Sky (movies, sport, entertainment and kids bundles) with terrestrial catchup and live TV (with pause/rewind function). Not to mention the plethora of other apps and media playback skills on offer.  www.nowtv.com

Bluesound is expanding its multiroom range to include a soundbar model that supports networked hi-res audio streaming with MQA compatability. The Bluesound Pulse Soundbar will sell for £1,000 when it arrives in November, placing it in the high-end 'bar bracket alongside the likes of Samsung's HW-K950, DALI's Kubik One and Yamaha's top-line YSP models. Able to turn a TV setup into another multiroom zone, the Pulse Soundbar uses a six-strong driver array (arranged in a stereo config), with each custom-designed unit supported by a dedicated amplifier channel. There are also two additional passive radiators. While natively two-channel, the onboard Dolby decoding chip that handles downmixing will, HCC has discovered, by enabled by a future firmware to allow the 'bar to decode surround sound signals and output to linked Pulse speakers.
