Once just a simple pay-TV service along the lines of Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, NOW TV has expanded to include broadband, TV and phone bundles, allowing you to get a range of services from a single provider. NOW Broadband was recently launched, allowing customers to take standalone broadband from NOW TV without the need for signing up for a TV pass.
As a subsidiary brand of Sky, NOW Broadband offers customers access to Sky's premium channels, such as the full complement of Sky Sports and Sky Cinema channels, as well as Sky's kids programming.
NOW TV's TV, broadband and home phone bundles operate on 12-month contract or on a no-contract basis. Choose the latter and you're free to cancel at any time without penalty.
Perhaps NOW TV's biggest 'sell' is flexibility. If you take a no-contract NOW TV Pass or NOW Broadband, you're free to cancel at any time and won't be charged. So if you think you might be moving house soon or aren't sure how long you may be living at a particular address, for instance, it could be just what you're looking for.
But it's worth noting that a higher set-up charge applies, which may offset the flexibility that you're getting. You should also bear in mind that NOW TV will go on renewing your one-month subscription with them until you actively cancel it.
For others, the appeal of NOW TV is that the rolling contract system enables you to get Sky Sports and Sky Cinema without making a major financial commitment. Equally appealing is the option to swap your TV pass for another one whenever you like.
So let's say you only want Sky Sports for the nine months of football season — you can just cancel it in the off season, then switch to a Sky Cinema pass or Entertainment Pass.
If you don't opt for a calls add-on your NOW Broadband subscription, you'll pay for the calls you make on a pay as you go basis.
Call packages get you free calls at particular times. The Evening and Weekend calls add-on is priced £4 per month. The Anytime Calls add-on is £8 per month.
