NOW TV, the streaming service from Sky, is adding more than 1,000 hours of on-demand sports content to its sports pass, at no extra cost (to new and existing Sports Pass subscribers).
The on-demand programming includes sports highlights, documentaries, news programmes and select reruns of Premier League matches and boxing fights.
The content, which has so far only been available on the web and mobile versions of NOW TV, will now be accessible on all the NOW TV apps, including on the Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Smart TVs and others.
It doesn’t require a lengthy contract, and gives you flexible packages (“passes”) of content – Entertainment (TV), Sky Cinema (films), Kids and Sports.
The Sky Sports pass is available with either daily (£9.99) or monthly (£33.99) passes.
It currently offers 11 live sports channels, with everything from Premier League to Formula 1, golf, cricket, American NFL football and more.
Up until recently, and unlike the other NOW TV passes, Sky Sports’ content was only available “live”, with no on-demand content at all.
Late last year, on-demand programmes and reruns were added to the mobile and web versions of NOW TV, and starting this week, Sports On Demand is available on the big screen through the NOW TV apps, available on over 60 devices.
The On-Demand category launches with Premier League and Formula 1 race reruns, the latest boxing fights and highlights from the EFL, NBA, European and PGA Tour.
These will now be available whenever you want to watch (within a limited timeframe, though) – without having to wait for the live broadcast.
In addition, customers can watch Gary Neville’s Soccerbox, PL: Retro, as well as documentaries such as Tiger Woods: Back, Lions 2017 Uncovered and AJ/WK: Wembley’s Greatest Fight.
F1 fans can also stream Race to Perfection, a documentary series in collaboration with Formula 1 and Sky Sports.
As for big sporting events, once a fixture is over, it will be available on-demand up to seven days after it has been shown.
All Premier League matches live on Sky Sports will also be available as reruns.
NOW TV’s Sky Sports On Demand offering is split by sport, so for those who prefer golf, boxing, or any of Sky Sports’ other channels, customers’ top picks can be accessed quickly and easily.
