Now TV's Entertainment Pass is about to become more expensive. From 15th August, it will set you back £7.99 a month, which is £1 more than at present.

The announcement of the price hike comes just as 'Game of Thrones' series seven arrives on the service on Monday.

Now TV is a contract-free way to watch TV. Instead of paying a monthly contract, you pay for one or more 'passes' – these cover sports, films, entertainment and kids' shows. Don't fancy watching any of these? Don't buy any passes, and you won't have to pay any money.

The Entertainment Pass brings you 11 channels, including Sky Atlantic, which is the home of 'Game of Thrones' in the UK.

The price of the other three Now TV passes remains the same – the Sports pass is still £6.99 a day, £10.99 a week or £33.99 a month, while the Cinema pass is £9.99 a month, and the Kids pass £2.99 a month.

This is the first price hike for the Entertainment pass in over two-and-a-half years.

It means the Entertainment pass is now more expensive than Netflix's standard tariff, which costs £7.49 a month – this gives you shows and films in HD, and lets you watch on two screens at the same time, so you and your partner can watch different things simultaneously, should you wish.

Netflix's cheapest tariff is £5.99 a month, but doesn't include HD or the ability to watch on two screens at once.
