October 29, 2013
Some of Sky’s most popular entertainment channels have joined its NOW TV OTT service as part of a new, pay-as-you-go offer.
The NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass offers a contract-free way to access ten top subscription TV channels: Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living, Sky Arts 1, Discovery, MTV, Comedy Central, GOLD, Disney and FOX. It allows customers to stream shows live and on demand on a pay-as-you-go basis – at an introductory price of £4.99 a month.
The NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass offers premiere episodes of the latest series, including Dracula (Sky Living), The Tunnel (Sky Atlantic), Hello Ladies (Sky Atlantic) and American Horror Story (FOX) – as well as the premieres of new series of Game of Thrones, The Following and Mad Men in the near future.
In addition to current shows, the NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass will offer entire box sets of hit shows. Highlights include every episode of all five seasons of The Wire (Sky Atlantic) and seasons one to three of An Idiot Abroad (Sky 1) and Mad Dogs (Sky 1).
Gidon Katz, Director of NOW TV, commented: “Millions of people can now go online to watch some of the best entertainment channels, including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic and Comedy Central. NOW TV offers pay-as-you-go access to brand new episodes of home-grown British shows and the biggest and best US series for anyone with broadband.”
The NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass is available immediately on the NOW TV Box, PS3, Roku, Macs and PCs. Other supported devices will be introduced as part of a phased roll out over the coming months including iPhone, iPad, selected Android smartphones, Xbox, LG Smart TVs and selected LG media devices. Customers are able to register four devices at any one time.
