NOW TV deal offers a set top box and Entertainment pass for £19.99

Monday, February 26th 2018 by Steve McCaskill

If you’re desperate to watch Britannia but don’t have Sky, then there is a low-cost option to consider.

NOW TV is Sky’s streaming service, offering its entertainment, movie and sports channels without the cost or long contract associated with a Sky subscription. There’s no need to install a satellite dish either.

The service is available on more than 60 devices, including iPhone, Android and Windows, but Sky also offers a range of devices for you to connect to your television. After all, what’s the point of watching a big budget TV show on a small screen?

A NOW TV Box is usually £14.99, but Sky is offering both the box and a two-month entertainment pass for £19.99 – a saving of 35%.

With Entertainment you get 11 live channels, including Sky Atlantic and Sky One, as well as access to more than 300 box sets – including Sky’s original drama. There’s also the option to add a Cinema Pass, which costs £9.99, giving you more than 1,000 films to stream.

To get Sky Sports on NOW TV, you can purchase a day pass for £6.99, a week pass for £13.99 or a month pass for £33.99.

Roku technology

The NOW TV Box is based on technology from Roku and there are a selection of apps to download, including BBC iPlayer, All 4, ITV Hub and Spotify. Unfortunately, it cannot load the Netflix and Amazon Prime apps, which are available on Roku’s own-branded products.

Sky has previously sold a NOW TV Smart Box that has all of the features of the standard unit but with a TV tuner, allowing viewers to watch 60 Freeview channels and 12 in high definition, and to pause and rewind live television.

It has also recently released the NOW TV Smart Stick, which is the size of a USB flash drive and plugs into your TV’s HDMI port. It also has voice-activated search that recognises shows, films and actors.

You can watch NOW TV on multiple devices with a single subscription, so you have the choice of watching at home or on the move no matter what you opt for.
