NOW TV app now available on Chromecast

NOW is now available on Google Chromecast.
The app gives users of the thumb-sized streaming stick a way to watch Sky content both live and on-demand without any contract.
Chromecast plugs into the HDMI port on your TV and lets you “cast” content from your phone, tablet or computer to the screen – including Netflix, BBC iPlayer and YouTube. Now, that library of apps has just gotten a lot bigger: as big as the sky, in fact.
NOW comes with three options.
Entertainment Month Pass
This gives users access to Sky TV channels for £8.99 a month, including (in September) the final season of Boardwalk Empire (Sky Atlantic), Geordie Shore (MTV), The Leftovers (Sky Atlantic) and the continuing season of Scandal (Sky Living).
Movies Month Pass
For £9.99 a month, movie fans can enjoy over 800 movies both live as they screen on Sky Movies channels and on-demand, from big Hollywood blockbusters to cult classics and indie films. The current line up (as of September 2014) includes Gravity, Anchorman 2 and – coming soon – Philomena.
Sky Sports Day Pass / Week Pass
Sports fans can keep up with matches and events with a Sky Sports Day Pass or Sky Sports Week Pass – which do exactly what they say on the tin. A Day Pass gives live action from all 7 Sky Sports channels for 24 hours for £8.99, while a Week Pass gives seven days’ worth of live streaming from Sky Sports channels for £14.99.
