Tell me a little more about Now TV

Now TV was launched in 2012 and has gained in popularity over the years. For those of you who haven’t heard of the service, it is basically a way of accessing Sky content online without having a Sky subscription.

Similar to services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, Now TV lets users choose packages that include entertainment, movies and sport and being a service without subscription allows you to control when you want to access the service without being locked into an expensive contract.

If you haven’t heard of Now TV you aren’t alone. In fact,, up until recently, we hadn’t even heard of it ourselves. When you see what content is available then you’ll be surprised that you didn’t know about it because as well as Sky Movies you an also get access to Sky Sports and some of the better Sky channels.

The basic entertainment package costs just £6.99 per month and includes the following channels :-

  • Sky Atlantic
  • Sky 1
  • Fox
  • Gold
  • Sky Living
  • Comedy Central
  • Discovery Channel
  • MTV
  • ITV Encore
  • Disney Channel
  • Nickelodeon
  • Nickjr.
  • ABC Studios
  • Sky Arts

So if you don’t want to be tied down to an expensive Sky subscription package then the Now TV Entertainment bundle can offer a viable alternative. If you’ve got kids then channels like Disney and Nickelodeon will come in handy while you watch Sky Atlantic and if you’re a Game of Thrones fan then you’ll be able to watch the latest series as it’s released on Sky Atlantic.

The Sky Movies Month pass from Now TV costs £9.99 per month and gives you access to over 1000 movies that can be streamed on your desktop or tablet at any time of day. If you’re going abroad then our VPN guide above will also allow you to watch these abroad, handy if you’re stuck in a hotel with nothing to do! A 30-day trial is available to see if you like the service and if you don’t you are free to cancel.

Sky Sports is available from Now TV at £6.99 for a day pass or £10.99 for a week pass. Again you can watch these in the UK but if you’re going outside the UK and don’t want to miss your favourite team play or favourite sport then using the VPN solution above in collaboration with the Now TV package will allow you to keep up with the sporting action no matter where you are in the world.
