NOW TV Hikes Entertainment Price by £1 – Broadband Combos Safe

Thursday, July 13th, 2017 (2:07 pm) - Score 684

Customers of the Sky owned NOW TV video streaming service will be hit by a price hike of 14.3% on 15th August 2017 when the monthly cost of the provider’s TV Entertainment Pass rises from £6.99 to £7.99. The good news is that NOW TV Combo (Broadband, Phone and TV) users aren’t affected.

The move makes NOW TV more expensive that Netflix’s standard HD streaming plan (£7.49), although the two are quite different services and NOW TV’s Entertainment Pass also includes live access to 11 premium TV channels (e.g. Sky Atlantic, Sky One, Fox, Discovery etc.).

The other good thing is that NOW TV uses a 30 day contract and so there should be no worry about being locked into the service. One way to push the price increase further into the future is to buy one of those £14.99 NOW TV (Roku) boxes online that includes a 3 month pass (effectively £5 per month), but don’t do that multiple times.

    re Roku box “but don’t do that multiple times” – any further explanation for this comment, please?

    • Something I read on the NOW TV Community forum about it, but I can’t recall the exact topic.

      I am pretty sure there’s a limit of 2 active boxes “pr account” (out of a max of 4 devices, registered as active on that account), but nothing to stop one having 2 or more accounts – though clearly not tied to back accounts if on has only ever used them for free introduction periods or the bundled package, supplied via a code within the box.

      I bought a couple of the newer boxes around Christmas, each at 15.00 (the new black box with ethernet connection as well as wireless. One has 3 months Entertainment, the other has 2 months of Films.

      Previously I’ve bought 3 of the earlier white box models at 12.50 (with 3 months of Entertainment package) from Argos and Tesco, at different times over the previous 2/3 years. Keep the ones with no subscriptions as units to view other channels (such as [www.] TWiT.TV ) but may pass on to my sisters that don’t have VM or bother with Sky, now one is switching to FTTC and the other might do so, both with Kingston.

      aaargh… dreaded typos. Time to switch to Disqus, perhaps ?
