NOW is now available on devices running Windows 8.1.
The TV streaming service is now compatible with PCs, laptops and tablet devices using Microsoft’s latest operating system, which means customers have a way to enjoy movies, sports and TV entertainment from Sky’s channels – without having to sign up to Sky.
The service is divided into three tiers of subscription:
A NOW Entertainment Month Pass is £8.99 a month and provides live and catch-up access to Sky’s pay-TV channels, including seasonal shows such as Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death and Olive Kitteridge, as well as VOD access to True Detective (from 12th December) and Game of Thrones Season 1 (available from 20th December, live streaming only).
A NOW Cinema Membershipis available for £9.99 a month (after a 30 day free trial) and offers live and on-demand access to Sky’s catalogue of over 1,000 movies, from big Hollywood blockbusters to cult classics. The LEGO Movie, Frozen, Muppets Most Wanted and Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier are all added this Christmas.
A Sky Sports Day Pass costs £8.99 for 24 hours’ access to all seven of Sky’s sports channels and £14.99 for a week’s access.
The arrival of NOW on Windows 8.1 takes the total number of devices supported by the service to 60.
Gidon Katz, Director of NOW, said: “We’re excited to launch on Windows 8.1, giving customers yet another platform to watch NOW this Christmas, whether that’s watching the latest Christmas movies like Disney’s Frozen, festive favourites like Elf and Home Alone, or starting a new Box Set such as the complete series of Mad Men.”
