Is there a compatibility issue with the Sports catch up stuff? I can't see it on either my Roku or my LG TV. Do I need to dig the the NowTV Smart Box out?

Sports Catchup isn't 'officially' launched on Connected Devices currently. Mobile being the only integrated version so far. A considerable redesgn of the interface will be needed on Connected versions to provide the granularity needed to browse and select the complex sports portfolio of content. Constructing the tree on CDs will be intricate.

Sky News has had HD added to the logo on the on-screen guide. That either means the stream previously was 720p with a pretty decent upscaled picture from my 4K box or have decided that they actually provide a 1080p stream.

Incidentally as I post with Sky News off-air and playing a pre-recorded emergency tape, the programme being aired does look like native 1080.

With Freeview only providing 544x576 streams of Sky News and Sky Arts, I'm pleased to see NOW TV actively promoting that they provide a FHD alternative to the blur-o-vision PQ Freeview channels.

Edit: After Sky News returned to normal at midnight, they're using the same feed as used on Sky News HD for Sky and Virgin, which doesn't have the green tint above the Sky News DOG.

The Sky News app (720p) and SD versions have the green tint above the logo, which NOW TV had when it launched Sky News on the platform which would suggest that initially they were restreaming the Sky News app feed at 720p for Now TV boost users.
