RARflix is a similar app to the Plex app that allow users to stream multimedia content to your Now TV box. If you’re having a hard time getting the Plex app to work. Which to my knowledge, doesnt work after an update by sky. I suggest installing RARflix on your Now TV box. Plus it has more features going for it, and gets updated all the time.
Install RARflix On Now TV
Before we begin, if you havent already, you will need to create an account and sign into your Now TV box, before proceeding.
When you’re at the home screen, you need to imput a sequence of buttons, to allow you to access the development mode.
In order press ”Home, Home, Home, Up, Up, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right”
If done correctly, you should get sent to the Developer Settings page, like below.
At the bottom you should see ”Enable Installer”. Select this and agree to the SDK License Agreement and hit ”Enable Installer and restart”.
Once the Now TV box restarts, you’ll be taken back to the Developer Settings. Here select reset password and create a new password for your now tv box, and note it down.

On your Now TV box, there will be an IP address and a username. note these down and head over to a computer. Example – http://192.168.1.59, Username – rokudev.
Open up your favourite web browser, and type the IP address into the web address box, and hit enter.
On the Roku Development Application Installer screen, select Browse and install the RARflix app.
