Sky shows off its special edition Christmas Now TV boxes

Warning: Includes a device that is offensive to your eyes

Sky has announced that special edition Now TV boxes will go on sale for Christmas, including a fetching Penguin, a Lego Movie tie-in and a glitter box that is possibly the worst looking electronic device known to man.

The cheap little Now TV box continues to provide a great value streaming offering, with a host of offers from Sky to pick up a few months of its premium programming from sport to movies as part of a package.
