Compare NOW TV packages
NOW TV packages are an affordable way of getting some of Sky’s most popular sports, entertainment and movie channels without a long-term contract or a satellite dish. You can compare all the packages that are on offer at the top of the page.
What can I watch on NOW TV?
You can watch premium Sky entertainment, movies and sports with the relevant passes. Full channel availability can be found in the table at the top of this page. You can choose to watch live or on demand and can also access free catch up services from the BBC, ITV and more.
What can I watch on NOW TV without a subscription?
With the NOW TV box, you can still get catch up and on demand content from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 channels – among others – even if you don’t have a NOW TV pass subscription.
Is NOW TV live?
Channels available with a NOW TV pass, including Sky Atlantic and Sky Sports 1 (full channel lists available are available in the table above) can be streamed live over your broadband connection, so you won’t miss out on the latest episodes of your favourite TV shows or the football as it happens.
Free-to-air channels such as those from the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV may only be available on demand (not live) through your NOW TV subscription.
Can I record NOW TV?
There isn’t a native recording function, but most TV shows and movies are available to watch when you want with the on demand feature. If your household viewing schedules clash, don’t worry, you can watch on up to two registered devices at once.
How do I get my NOW TV account set up?
Choose the pass you want from the table above or go direct to the NOW TV website to join. You’ll need to enter a few personal details (your name, email address), create a username and password, and choose your preferred method of payment. Once your application has been processed, you’ll be ready to watch online, through a games console, a NOW TV box, or on another compatible device.
Can I watch NOW TV with a Sky subscription?
You can use your Sky account – either your Sky iD or Sky Go login – to sign up to NOW TV, but will need to set up and pay for separate subscription to use the service.
Where can I get a NOW TV pass?
Deals for all NOW TV Passes are listed in the table at the top of this page and you can order them easily online. If you’ve picked up a NOW TV box from the high street, it may include your first pass. Look for the included voucher code and enter this through your user settings online or through the menu system on the NOW TV box. You can also buy NOW TV vouchers individually in some highstreet shops.
Can I get a free trial code?
NOW TV sometimes offers free trials on certain passes to new customers. To claim this you will need to create an account and enter billing information. Free trials will auto-renew as active, billable subscriptions at the end of the trial period, unless cancelled in advance.
How do I stop my free trial from auto renewing?
Log into your NOW TV account and locate the trial pass in your subscription details. Click ‘cancel’ to prevent auto-renew.
Can I use more than one pass at a time?
Yes, you can add any of the three NOW TV passes to your account at once for collective sports, movies and entertainment coverage. Passes will need to be added, billed and managed individually. All passes will renew automatically unless you choose to cancel them.
Will I have to have anything installed?
No, NOW TV is an online video streaming service so there’s no need to have an aerial, satellite or cable system fitted. You’ll need a reliable broadband connection and a wi-fi (wireless) router if you want to watch on portable devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops) or on the NOW TV box.
What broadband speed do I need?
The minimum requirement is 2.5Mbps. If you don’t know how fast your broadband connection is, you can find out with our speed checker.
How much data do I need for NOW TV?
Data usage depends on how often you watch live and on demand content. As a guide, the average film (approx. 90 minutes) will consume between 1.5GB and 2GB of data depending on the quality of the image, which adjusts to suit the speed of your broadband connection. Faster connections may lead to increased data consumption.
Does NOW TV have HD channels?
If you’re watching a live stream, the picture will be standard definition (SD) unless you’re watching on Apple TV, in which case it may be available in 720p high definition (HD).
On demand content is streamed in up to 720p HD across most devices, but is dependent on the speed and reliability of your broadband connection. If you’re watching on an iPhone, iPad or Android device, all content will be streamed in standard definition (not HD).
How do I link my NOW TV account to other devices?
When you sign into your NOW TV account on a new device, it will be automatically registered. You can register up to four separate devices and watch on up to two simultaneously. All registered devices will be listed in the ‘Manage Devices’ section of your user account settings where they can be removed as needed.
Can I get NOW TV on YouView?
YouView set-top boxes – including those from BT and TalkTalk – don’t support the majority of NOW TVs features at this time. Live and on demand streams from sports and entertainment passes are unavailable. Live movies are also unavailable and only a limited number of titles can be watched on demand.
