NOW TV offers £1 Entertainment Pass Trial

New NOW TV customers can sign up for the internet service's Entertainment Month Pass for just £1 a month until the end of 27th September 2015.

The Pass, which gives viewers access to live and on-demand programming from channels including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, ITV Encore and MTV, is normally priced at £6.99 a month. There's also access to Box Sets, including Mad Men and 24. The offer is available via

NOW TV's Entertainment channels are available via a number of connected boxes, dongles and smart TVs (full listing here), but not via YouView. After the promotional period, the price reverts to £6.99 a month, but can be cancelled at any time, with access to the service usually expiring by the time the next payment would have been due. Users who wait until Thursday will be able to order the new NOW TV Box to go with the service, which is based on last year's Roku smart boxes, providing access to NOW TV and other on-demand and catch-up services.

Existing customers who fancy a discount can still buy vouchers for 3 or 5 months' worth of access to the entertainment channels at retailers including Game, where the price works out at £5 a month, which still offers a nearly £2 discount on the normal price.

NOW TV is operated by Sky, providing so-called 'entry-level' access to Sky's premium entertainment, film and sports channels without the need for 12 or 18 month contracts. However, a broadband speed of at least 2.5 Mbps is required for the service, and any usage of the service will count towards any data caps, where applicable.
