    (I'm not trying to ask for help to get content keys, I have got them already.)

    Hi, I'm just curious about the highest resolution of Now TV on Chrome, for example.

    Is it at most 720p, even if I have bought their "Boost" plan which is so-called available to watch Full HD contents?

    Would any friends especially from England be open to give me a hint?

    The reason I didn't get BOOST is that there is not enough balance on my virtual card. And to be frank it's not cheap I have to admit.

    P.S. Their bitrate is good-looking. So I may come up with a guess their 1080p bitrate could reach nearly 10,000 Kbps? If so, that would be "seductive".

  2. No. The HD and Surround Sound features of Boost aren't available on any of the following devices that you can watch NOW on:

    PC/Mac
    iOS or Android mobile devices
    Amazon Fire & Fire HD tablets
    Roku devices other than Roku Express or Roku Streaming Stick
    Chromecast 2nd generation.
    We're always looking to make Boost available on more devices, so check back regularly to see if your favourite device is supported.
    Thats from their FAQ website.

    The bitrate from my experience is around 7.8k-8k kbps.

    OK I got it. Thank you very much.

    Still be glad to see that it's available on Roku Express.

  4. The 1080p Boost upgrade no longer applies to PC/Mac. It did offer 1080p when they made you install their app, however their recent switch to in-browser playback means they now limit to 720p in browsers.

    Due to public release of the Now/Sky scripts I also fully expect Sky to change security on other devices soon too (Pretty sure NowTV Italy and Wow Germany are PR only for VOD on other devices so I expect UK will follow)

    That's a new information, thanks @T33V33.

    I'm lucky that I didn't pay to NowTV Italy, nor did I pay to WOW in Germany.
