Sky is putting its planned price hike for Now TV on hold.

The prices of both the Entertainment Pass and Movies Pass were due to increase on May 29th, but the broadcaster has delayed them for the time being. It says recently it "hasn't delivered the consistently high-quality service customers rightly expect from us".

The Sky Movies Month Pass will stay at £8.99 a month, and the Entertainment Month Pass at £4.99 a month. They were due to increase to £9.99 and £6.99 a month respectively.

Both will remain contract-free, so you can sign up for one month without being tied in for any more.

Now TV has suffered a couple of outages during high-profile broadcasts recently. The first episode of series four of 'Game of Thrones' was unavailable for some viewers as Now TV struggled to meet demand.

The crucial Liverpool vs Chelsea Premier League football match was also unavailable for some due to technical issues.

Sky recompensed peeved customers by offering a free Entertainment Pass for a month. The offer is valid until September 8th.

Now TV will come to Sony's PS4 console this summer. Its stablemate, Sky Go, will follow later in the year.
