Sky Add Entertainment Channels to Broadband Streaming Service NOW TV

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 (1:09 pm) - Score 1,615

It took a while but Sky (Sky Broadband) has finally added ten of the UK’s top pay-tv entertainment channels (e.g. Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Discover) to their unlimited web-based Internet TV and Movie (video streaming) service – NOW TV – and it only costs from £4.99 a month (introductory price).

The new pay-as-you-go style Entertainment Month Pass includes the following channels: Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living, Sky Arts 1, Discovery, MTV, Comedy Central, GOLD, Disney and FOX. As with the existing Sky Movies and Sky Sports options the NOW TV service does not require a contract or Sky TV subscription to function.

Gidon Katz, Director of NOW TV, said:

Millions of people can now go online to watch some of the best entertainment channels, including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic and Comedy Central. NOW TV offers pay-as-you-go access to brand new episodes of home-grown British shows and the biggest and best US series for anyone with broadband.”

The service itself can also be accessed from all of the usual computers, smartphones and mobile devices (iOS and Android etc.) via a special app or a £9.99 (one-off) NOW TV set-top-box for your television set. But you’ll need a minimum broadband speed of 2.5Mbps to use the service and a stable wifi link to your router.

The NOW TV box will also be adding Channel 4’s catch-up TV service 4oD to its platform before the end of the year. Meanwhile the introductory price of £4.99 will only be available to those who join by 31st March 2014 (there’s no word on the post-offer price).

    Currys and PC world Have the NowTV box with the 3 month pass for £24.99 also 🙂

    Of all the channels listed, I’d be interested in C4 On Demand and possibly MTV. Perhaps Sky Arts, but that involves paying money to Sky, so that’s out.

    Now can someone other than Sky come up with something like this, which doesn’t cost £249 (YouView).

    This is actually an amazing offer for consumers. You can now get the best of the Sky TV experience through your Sky Fibre broadband connection for less than 15 bones a month. Gamechanger.

      Except the sports channels still cost £9.99 a day via NOWTV for the day Day Pass.

      Do Sky still offer the standalone Sky Go Monthly Pass subscription that doesn’t require
      you to have a pre-existing subscription to Sky TV, or have they stopped that now?
