      Pay-as-you-go Sky Sports comes to NOW TV

      From today millions of people can enjoy the best live sport on a simple pay-as-you-go basis with the launch of Sky Sports on NOW TV, the new internet TV service from Sky.

      With no contract, set-up costs or installation, NOW TV offers a new and flexible way to access great live sport. For just 9.99, customers can get unlimited 24-hour access to all six Sky Sports channels.

      Launching on NOW TV opens up Sky Sports to new audiences. It is perfect for those people who want the flexibility to buy specific matches or events, or to take advantage of a whole day of live sport. Because NOW TV offers instant access, customers can enjoy the UK’s best line-up of live sport at the touch of a button on the most popular connected devices, including Xbox 360, computers, tablets and smartphones.

      2013 is Sky Sports’ biggest year yet, and NOW TV customers can enjoy instant access to a wide range of great matches and events, including:

      • Exclusive live matches from the Barclays Premier League and UEFA Champions League
      • All 19 Grands Prix™ from the Formula 1 season– as well as qualifying and practice sessions
      • Exclusive coverage of the British & Irish Lions 2013 Tour of Australia
      • All 10 Ashes Test matches from home and away, exclusively live – as well as all one-day internationals and Twenty20 internationals
      • Three of golf’s four Majors - including The Masters
      • Exclusive ATP tennis, including the ATP finals from The O2

      NOW TV already offers instant access to Sky Movies, offering more of the latest and biggest movies at least 12 months before any other online movies subscription service. With a Sky Movies monthly pass, NOW TV customers are able to enjoy unlimited access to the entire Sky Movies collection, choosing from over 600 movies on demand at any one time, including Hollywood blockbusters and classics.

      Simon Creasey, Director of NOW TV, comments: “The launch of Sky Sports on NOW TV is a landmark moment for sports fans. For the first time you can get great value, commitment-free access to Sky Sports, all at the touch of a button. So whether it’s a Grand Prix on your TV, a Premier League match on your iPad, or an Ashes Test on your PC, millions more people can now enjoy great live sport across the most popular internet-connected devices.

      “And because you can start streaming in an instant, it’s perfect for those people who want the flexibility to dip in and dip out.”

      Barney Francis, MD of Sky Sports, adds: “Sky Sports has never offered a greater choice of high-quality live sport and we’ve got our biggest ever summer ahead. Whether it’s the Ashes, the Lions, F1, or the finale of the football season, there’s something for all sports fans on Sky.

      “At the same time as we’re innovating on-screen, we’re always looking at new ways to make our content available to customers. NOW TV is a great way for even more people to enjoy the best action from Sky Sports.”

      NOW TV is available across a wide range of the most popular internet-connected devices, including PC, Mac, Xbox 360, iPad and iPhone, selected Android smartphones, Roku and YouView (for movies on demand content only).

      9.99 for 24 hours viewing is a bit steep is it not, when you consider it costs 8.99/15 for a full month of movies? I honestly can't see them getting a lot of takers.

      Agreed. At first I mis-read it as meaning 9.99 for a full month!

      Yes, 190 to watch the F1 GP races, 40 for a major Golf Championship or a Test match is taking the wee.

      Anyone who takes that offer up wants their head examined.

      There are many people who for some reason or other can't get Sky at all.

      Whilst I do agree that this is an expensive option, it does open a door.

      I was one of the beta testers for this, and i have to admit at first picture quality was poor, with buffering throughout, as the weeks went by, it did improve, but stil i got the occasional buffering(im on fibre bband), but i have to agree definitely not worth 9.99, for a 24 hour period!!

      This is so expensive, about 300 a month I wonder if they have made a mistake somewhere and it should be 9.99 a month?

      They'd need to open doors alright - the ones to the lunatic asylums! You'd have to be mad to be paying this price .
