Now TV is the ideal option if you want Sky TV channels but don’t have a satellite dish, or a smart TV, or fancy a long term contract.

It allows you to plan your viewing à la carte, using monthly passes that can be cancelled at any time.

A monthly Sky Cinema Pass is £9.99, Entertainment £7.99, Kids £3.99 and Sky Sports £33.99.

Now TV comes with Netflix and Disney+ on board as standard (you’ll need to subscribe to them separately), plus assorted catch-up TV apps, like BBC iPlayer, ITVHub, All4 and My5, as well as YouTube and Sky Store.

Being able to dip in for specific shows or movies is an easy way to keep track of your TV spending, and a Sky Sports Day Pass ensures you won’t miss a big match or sporting fixture.

The Now TV Smart Stick, which streams in HD quality with crisp stereo sound, is really easy to install and use. It plugs into an HDMI socket on your TV and connects to your Wi-Fi network.

Why we love it

This offer comes with a free one month Entertainment pass, which gives you access to 11 live channels, including Sky One and Sky Atlantic, as well as over 300 box sets including recent hits like HBO’s Watchmen and Lovecraft Country, and older classics like The Wire and Twin Peaks.

Also included is one month’s free Sky Cinema access, home to a huge number of recent movies including Oscar-winners Le Mans ‘66 and Judy, modern blockbusters like Spider-Man: Far From Home and Terminator: Dark Fate, along with a massive back catalogue of classics such as Titanic, The Dark Knight and Saving Private Ryan.

Rounding the package off is a one day Sports pass, which gives you access to 11 live Sky Sports channels for 24 hours.

Then all you need do is break out the popcorn and binge.
