NOW TV offers £1 monthly trial to new customers
James R | On 05, Aug 2015
NOW has once again cut the price of its TV streaming service to offer new customers a £1 monthly trial.
A NOW Entertainment Membership, which usually costs £6.99 a month, gives non-Sky customers streaming access to all of Sky’s main TV channels: Sky 1, Sky Living, Sky Atlantic and Sky Arts, as well as FOX, ITV Encore and others. Shows are available to watch both live online and stream on catch-up, a la BBC iPlayer, after broadcast.
Now, though, Sky has cut its prices for the first month of a new account to a quid – the second time it has offered discounted trials this year. Anyone who signs up before 27th September will get the special rate for their first month.
This month, NOW’s series line-up will include a six-part series starring Oscar Isaac (Show Me a Hero – starting 17th August), David Duchovny’s new series (Aquarius – starting 11th August), all five seasons of Boardwalk Empire, all three parts of The Enfield Haunting, and all seven seasons of True Blood (from 13th August). The first two seasons of Hannibal are also available, alongside all seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy.
NOW is available on mobile devices and consoles, as well as on Roku set top boxes and NOW’s own dedicated set top box. The latest £1 deal follows the announcement of a new NOW box, which will cost £15 (compared to the original’s £10 price tag) and will have improved specs.
Monthly subscriptions will renew at the usual £6.99 a month rate – although there is no contract, so you can cancel your subscription at any time. Think of it as 30-day rental period for Oscar Isaac. With the whole of Sons of Anarchy as a bonus.
