With the transfer window for summer 2018 now closed, football fans in the UK are asking one question: how do I watch Sky Sports online legally without Sky?
Fortunately, Sky has already scored a winning answer with NOW TV. The cord-cutting VOD service has proven a popular alternative to Sky in the UK, with non-Sky customers able to watch Sky TV channels and Sky Cinema both live and on-demand, free from a lengthy contract. With Sky locking down the rights for the Premier League in the UK, though, sports is just as in-demand, and so Sky Sports was added to the mix a few years ago, adding flexibility for footie fans.
All Sky Sports channels are available to stream live through NOW TV for £7.99 (24 hour’s access) or £12.99 (one week’s access). A monthly pass is also available for £33.99 a month. This August, though, NOW TV is kicking off the new football season in style with a near-half-price offer for a Sky Sports Season Ticket, which allows you to watch Premier League football online legally in the UK.
NOW TV’s limited Sky Sports Season Ticket excludes Sky’s non-football channels, but offers live streaming access to Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Football – including live coverage of 126 Premier League games online, and over 500 domestic and international football games from the Sky Bet EFL Championship, SPFL and Carabao Cup. Soccer aside, fans with the Sky Sports Season Pass can also follow England live and exclusive on Sky Sports in the inaugural UEFA Nations League this autumn. (For the other 42 Premier League matches across the season, fans will need to get BT Sport.)
On the opening weekend alone, that means you can stream Man Utd vs Leicester (Friday 10 August, 8pm), Newcastle vs Tottenham (Saturday 11 August, 12:30pm), Liverpool vs West Ham (Sunday 12 August, 1:30pm) and Arsenal vs Man City (Sunday 12 August, 4pm).
The pass lasts the length of the football season – 10 months – and is worth over £300. For thos who sign up before 23.59pm on 20th August, though, the pass currently costs £179.
The offer comes with the Premier League just hours away. The discount is available to new and existing NOW TV customers. For more information, the full terms and conditions, or to start streaming, click here.
