      The best deal on Sky TV isn't available on a SkyHD box

      NOW TV Combo now available in the UK, and it's the best Sky TV deal yet | Tech | Life & Style | Daily Express
      YES, you read that headline correctly. The best monthly deal on Sky TV channels isn't available through a SkyHD+ box it is available through the satellite broadcaster's new NOW TV Combo service.

      More people will now be able to enjoy Sky TV for less, following the radical launch of NOW TV Combo.

      The next-generation television service brings television, phone and broadband to your home, without the need for an annual contract.

      Currently, even the cheapest SkyHD packages start from 20 a month, with the company's brilliant new Sky Q hardware, with Sports and Movies and set-up fees, coming in at an eye-watering 100 every month.

      NOW TV Combo could provide a welcome alternative to those who still want to keep up-to-date with Game of Thrones and other must-see shows on Sky Atlantic, as well as the latest blockbusters available through Sky Cinema.

      Unlike the traditional Sky TV packages, NOW TV Combo allows customers to cancel or tweak what is in their package at any time, with bundles starting from 6.99 a month.

      You can even buy a standalone day-pass for Sky Sports to enjoy a certain football match or pick to have it included for a single month, before removing it again.

      Sky is offering a number of add-on packs for the service, with options including entertainment, movies and box sets, and there's even a new kids service packed with child-friendly content.

      The latest NOW TV hardware is also able to pause and rewind live television although you won't be able to record shows like you can on a SkyHD+ box.

      However, that's not too must of a disadvantage, since you can catch-up on the shows you have missed on-demand via apps like BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub.

      Unfortunately you won't be able to watch other streaming services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, through the box.

      Customers will also be able to take advantage of Sky's lightning-fast Fibre broadband, as well as free evening and weekend calls, too.

      A NOW TV Combo with the Entertainment Pass, monthly access to Sky Cinema, Sky Fibre broadband with speeds up to 40Mbps, evening and weekend calls and line rental will set you back 51.97 per month.

      I was cynical about this but maybe it's a good thing.

      Sky have been losing lots of low-end customers to BT, and to a lesser extent talktalk and EE, in the last few years. This offer is targeted at people who want Sky content without the 12 month contract and who are happy with freeview content the rest of the time. BT and others have shown there is a market for this for several years now and this is Sky's response.
