NOW TV and Nickelodeon Favourites

NOW TV is a new to the market Freeview box for your home. Powered by Sky you can buy the tiny box for £9.99, wire it up to your TV and that’s it. What’s special about this freeview box is that you can watch programmes on demand on iPlayer, ITVplayer, 4OD and 5 on demand! You can also ‘buy’ flexible entertainment packages, like add-ons, you can have films, sports and entertainment you won’t find on other freeview boxes and the beauty of it is you can choose how many months you’d like to have them for. Just what we’d like… some real flexibility.

The box is small and discreet

NOW TV has also just teamed up with Nickelodeon and Nick Jr to bring you the very best of kids television. You can now stream these channels through the box, how great is that? It’s sure to keep the children very happy indeed!

To celebrate the collaboration with Nickelodeon there was a special launch event in central London, held at the brand new, swanky Ham Yard Hotel, in the heart of Piccadilly. And WE were invited!

Meeting the ever popular Spongebob as soon as we walked in was, of course, a highlight!! The Ham Yard Hotel is gorgeous and this mini bowling alley was part of the room in which the event took place! Very impressive I thought, as did the children who were firstly enjoying some colouring in time 🙂

There was face painting which was out of this world! I’ve never seen such professional looking paints and the artists themselves were brilliant. My daughter’s dragonfly on her arm was so intricate and pretty.

As well as being able to watch Nickelodeon cartoons on the tons of iPads and screens lying around and colouring in pictures, the children stuffed their faces (love these cupcakes) and we all had a game of bowling which was lots of fun!

This was a great event for the children as they’re ever so familiar with the Nickelodeon characters and programmes. I mean, my daughter will love watching the likes of Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly, Bubble Guppies etc, but equally she’ll love to sit and watch iCarly and Victorious too, actually these are her favourites. My almost 5 yr old twin boys are fans of them all too, although they love watching Ninja Turtles as well!

Making the day even more special was seeing some of my favourite blogging friends at the event too with all their children. Ruth from Rocknrollerbaby, Katie from Modern Mummy and Jacinta from Jacintas3. What could be better than sharing a fab morning at an amazing place, helping to promote an amazing product and having fun with friends?

Actually the weather was gorgeous outside so afterwards Ruth, Katie and myself decided to spend the afternoon on the South Bank playing in the fountains and the huge beach (sandpit) that overlooks the Thames!

All the children are used to spending time together, get along really well and always have a great time!

It wasn’t just the kids though, us Mums got the chance to grab a spot of pampering, be it having a manicure or massage…

Loved my manicure, and you can see my little face paint tattoo there too on my arm… well, why not?!

  Photobooth shenanigans! 


We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the NOW TV event to welcome Nickelodeon into it’s growing family! Did you know that you can also watch boxsets on the NOW TV Box? AND turn your TV into a smart TV by downloading your favourite Apps? Plus there is NO CONTRACT for any of the services it offers, keeping you free to change your mind at any time.

I think it’s time to ditch the expensive packages and go for one of these 🙂

Thank you so much NOW TV and Nickelodeon for a fantastic morning.

Goodie bags to take home!


I was invited along to celebrate the launch of Nickelodeon with NOW TV. I was given a NOW TV box free of charge to try out at home 🙂

  1. That looks like a fabulous event, and Now TV looks a cheaper alternative to a regular Sky Box – is it something you can have separately, or just an add-on?


  2. WOW I am so jealous this looks absolutely amazing. The kids look like they loved it too. Love the last photo so cute. What a great opportunity. I bet they will never forget it too. Amazing they even pampered moms! Hurray! Thanks for linking up to Share With Me I hope to see you again this week for another great round. #sharewithme
