Now, the TV may not be as high profile as Disney Plus, Netflix or Amazon Prime – but that doesn’t mean it’s any less worthy, and it could be exactly what you’re looking for.
The streaming platform, unveiled by Sky in 2012, is designed for people who don’t have an existing pay-TV subscription.
And now it’s home to hit series like Chernobyl, Game of Thrones and Watchmen as well as HBO shows, live sports, and first screenings from the latest movie releases.
The streaming platform recently added The Undoing starring Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman, Billie Piper’s I Hate Suzie and Sky Atlantic’s second-biggest drama ever, Gangs of London.

I like the sound of it, but what really isNOW TV?
It’s a streaming service from Sky, made up of five individual ‘cards’ that you can subscribe to – Entertainment, Movies, Sports, Hayu (reality TV-focused cards) and Kids .
Each ticket is a separate monthly subscription – useful if you know exactly what you want to watch – allowing users to access live TV shows – ie: use a sports card – or library movies or TV shows.
That’s interesting, howe a lot it cost a month?
Sky Cinema Ticket: £11.99 a month, with 7 days free trial for all first time subscribers. Users have access to all 11 Sky Cinema channels and over a thousand movies on demand.
Entertainment card: £9.99 a month, with 7 days free trial for all first time subscribers. Users have access to 16 live channels and 300 TV series sets.
NOW TV Kids Pass: £3.99 a month, with 7 days free trial for all first time subscribers. Users get six channels, plus thousands of episodes on demand.
hayu Month Pass: £4.99 a month, with a 7-day free trial available to all first-timers. Users receive over 250 box sets of top reality TV shows, replenished on the same day as the US premiere.
Sky Sports Card: 33.99 a month or £9.98 for a one-day pass. The user then has access to all 11 Sky Sports channels.

Documentary about the sky
A decent list. Do I have to be a Sky TV subscriber to use NOW TV?
But NOW TV will give you access to Sky TV channels and shows starting from £3.99 per month.
If you find yourself watching a lot of Sky, it may be financially reasonable to buy a generic TV channel and broadband deal directly with them.
Is it easy to register NOW TV?
Just go to NOW TV website and create an account.
Then you need to click on the “Tags” tab and simply choose which one you want. The free 7-day trial option applies to all sports cards.

Is there any other way I can view it?
Yes, you can buy a NOW TV Smart Stick (£17.99) that plugs into any TV with an HDMI port.
Of course, this stick must be connected to Wi-Fi.
If you don’t have a Smart TV this is a great option, as you not only get NOW TV but also get access to BBC iPlayer, All4, ITV Hub and Netflix.
Where can I get this stick?
Amazon, Argos and Currys PC World, many of which sell it with TV tickets included.
Which devices support NOW TV?
You may not be tempted by the Smart Stick, but you can still watch NOW TV on your smartphone using the NOW TV app on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and/or via Chromecast, LG and Samsung Smart TV – if the model is newer than 2014. You can also watch NOW TV on your laptop or Mac via the app.

Where to start? These include Chernobyl, The Sopranos, Mare of Easttown, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Succession, Band of Brothers, Boardwalk Empire, Gangs of London and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Currently, the premium list includes Dune, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tenet, The Shawshank Redemption, The Lego Movie, Paddington 2, The Suicide Squad, Inception, The Theory of Everything, Jumanji and Indiana Jones and Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
