It seems that Skyâ€™s investment in Roku has partly been motivated by its desire to create a great streaming box for its own services.<br /><br />Sky says that other services will be added soon, including Spotify, Facebook and Flickr. However, do not count on seeing Netflix in the mix as it is one of the direct competitors to Skyâ€™s Now TV service. New customers can try Now TV free for 30 days. After that it will cost you ÂŁ15 per month and Sky Sports can be added on a pay-per-view basis.<br /><br />The NOW TV Box is available from <a href=http://www.nowtv.com target=_blank><b>nowtv.com </b></a> for just ÂŁ10, including shipping.
