NOW TV is a subscription OTT internet television service operated by British satellite television provider Sky.
NOW TV offers "passes" with a specific set of content or channels that are able to be watched on demand or live TV. The "Entertainment" pass has general entertainment content/channels from Sky (e.g. Sky One) and third-parties (e.g. Syfy). The "Kids" pass covers children's networks such as Nickelodeon, and a "Sky Cinema" pass offers over a thousand films from Sky Cinema. There is also a dedicated "Hayu" pass, and a "Sports" pass (both daily and monthly) to stream live Sky Sports channels.
The NOW TV boxes and dongles have extra downloadable apps that provide access to free catch-up or streaming services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, UKTV Play as well as access to Sky Store, Netflix (added in late 2018), Sky Sports Box Office, Disney+ (added in April 2020) and YouTube. From Spring 2020, NOW TV will provide access to BT Sport, and at the same time NOW TV will become available for BT TV customers.
NOW TV is available on numerous platforms and operating systems. They include NOW TV proprietary devices (Roku, NOW TV Smart Stick dongle and NOW TV Smart Box), NOW TV Player apps (available for Windows and Mac computers), Android and iOS devices (via app), game consoles (PS4 and Xbox One), Apple TV, Chromecast and selected LG and Samsung Smart TVs.
NOW TV is a great choice regardless of your streaming interests and preferences. Whether it’s Game of Thrones, Big Little Lies or La Liga – NOW TV has it all without being bound by a long-term Sky subscription. There is only one problem – any attempt to stream its content from anywhere outside the UK (even with a valid Sky subscription) ends up with a content geo-blocked error message on your screen.
