A: For non HDMI TV's you'll need a cable shown below.

A: No.  Plex is very similar to XBMC.

A: Yes, it can be used to stream content from an iPad/Android table to the NOW TV Box. Its not very pretty but it works.

It works quite happily outside the UK with an IP spoofing service ($5/mo) and I've got Canadians watching EastEnders on it just as if they were in the UK.
