With the summer almost behind us, you’re likely to spend more time at home – and Sky’s streaming service, NOW TV, is trying to help with that: from Maisie Williams’ intriguing new series, to the much-hyped political drama The Comey Rule, blockbuster films and the return of Premier League – September is going to be a busy month.
NOW TV is Sky’s answer to Netflix and cord cutters – a cheap TV service that doesn’t require a lengthy contract and gives you flexible packages (“passes”) of content that can be watched on a variety of streaming devices.
The passes include the Entertainment Pass for TV shows, the Cinema Pass for movies, the Kids Pass for children’s content, and the Sky Sports Pass. (See our full NOW TV review here).
Keep in mind that on September 1, the NOW TV Entertainment Pass price is going up – from £8.99/month to £9.99/month. So if you’re reading this in August, you still have a few days to lock the cheaper price for one month (but it will renew at the higher price).
The Sky Cinema pass normally costs £11.99/month, but new customers can get it for £9.99/month, for up to 12 months, via this link – this is a limited-time deal, so hurry up. And if you want some recommendations – see our picks for the best 20 movies on NOW TV.
And now – for the content that’s coming in September:
