Backed by the power of the vast Sky network – which itself connects over 23 million customers to premium television, and many more to broadband services – NOW TV is, in many ways, a glimpse into the future of television. Rather than delivering premium channels and content through dedicated cable or satellite receivers (with all the expense and inconvenience that brings), NOW TV utilises the power of fast broadband to bring the same quality TV into people’s home.
What Makes NOW TV Unique?
A lot of the barriers to entry when it comes to premium TV can be incredibly frustrating – the need to have hardware like a satellite dish installed, for example, or the high monthly costs associated with renting a box to watch and record your channels with. Then there’s the need to commit to a plan or contract, something that many people simply don’t want to do. More of us are moving around more often than we used to, and having a premium TV service that travels with you is, for many, the perfect solution.
NOW TV also makes sense from a flexibility point of view. There are no mandatory channel packs or costs that you don’t want, and no contracts on anything. You simply pay for one or more “Passes” to access the content you’re after, and you can add, drop and switch between them as often as you like. That makes it a great solution to catch that must-see new HBO show on Sky Atlantic, or to give the kids extra stuff to watch when they’re on holidays.
