Sky Sports News HQ App hits the NOW TV Box

With transfer deadline day just round the corner, NOW TV is offering a new way to watch Sky Sports News HQ, with an app launching on the NOW TV Box.

From today, those with a NOW TV Box and any active NOW TV pass – sports, entertainment or movies - will be able to watch Sky Sports News HQ through a dedicated app on their homepage - making it even easier to keep up with the unrivalled sports news service 24/7.

Customers with a Sky Sports Day Pass or Sky Sports Week Pass will be able to continue watching Sky Sports News HQ via the NOW TV Box app even when their current pass has expired. For 30 days from the point of activation they’ll still be able to keep up with all the latest sporting news through the NOW TV Box.

Furthermore, for the first time, Sky Sports News HQ will also become available via the app to those with an active NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass or Sky Movies Month Pass without having to purchase a sport pass.

Gidon Katz, Director of NOW TV comments:
“On Monday we’ll see the frenzy of Transfer Deadline Day reach fever pitch as the clock ticks down to 11pm.

Sky Sports News HQ is always right at the heart of the latest breaking sports news and the new app on the NOW TV Box means sports fans can now get even more from their NOW TV passes.


Sky Sports News HQ is the latest app to join the NOW TV Box, which helps turn a TV into a smart TV for £9.99. It already offers popular apps such as catch up services from iPlayer, 4oD, ITV Player and Demand 5, as well as the likes of YouTube, Facebook and Spotify.
