Now TV – Sky's subscription-free, pay-as-you-go TV service – is now available on Google's Chromecast streaming dongle.

Seeing as BT Sport launched on Chromecast earlier in the year, that means that every Barclays Premier League football match is now available via Google's streaming stick.

Instead of charging a subscription, Now TV lets you pay as you watch. Until November 27th, a Sky Sports Pass for Now TV will cost you £6.99 a day, or £10.99 a week.

The price will go up thereafter, just in time to capitalise on demand to catch Premier League games over Christmas.

The Sky Movies Pass costs £8.99 a month, and gets you all the action from 11 sports channels. The Sky Entertainment Pass brings you a host of shows from Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Atlantic, and costs £4.99 a month.

The Entertainment Pass also includes ITV Encore, a channel exclusive to Sky.

"We're big fans of tiny media streaming devices so we're really excited to add Google Chromecast to the family," said Gidon Katz, director of Now TV.

"It means our customers have another great way to enjoy Now TV on their big screen.

"We're getting ready for the colder, darker nights and making sure there's plenty of great TV to watch while snuggled down on the sofa. Adding the very best of British drama from ITV Encore means TV addicts won't be short of shows to enjoy this autumn."
