NowTV is a streaming service right up there with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, except in addition to movies and TV boxsets it offers several live Sky TV channels. In the run-up to Christmas no other streaming service can rival NowTV on its selection of festive films, and it also carries more Disney titles than any other.

Unlike Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, however, NowTV comes in four distinct packages with differing pricing: Sky Cinema, Sky Entertainment, Sky Kids and Sky Sports. If you want movies you need Sky Cinema, priced at £9.99 per month; if you want TV boxsets and all the latest big US shows such as Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead you want Sky Entertainment, priced at £6.99 per month; Sky Kids and Sky Sports are fairly self-explanatory, with Kids costing £2.99 per month and Sports day-, week- and month passes costing £6.99, £10.99 and £33.99 respectively.
The good news is the first three of those packages come with free 14-day trials, so you can sign up now, watch what you want, then cancel your subscription and never pay a penny.
There are other ways you can net yourself free NowTV streaming, too. For example, Vodafone offers a free 24-month NowTV Entertainment Pass with all its Pay Monthly Red Entertainment plans.
If you buy a NowTV Box you can also get extended free trials. Argos offers the NowTV Box with a one-month Sky Sports Pass for £24.99, with a three-month Sky Cinema Pass for £39.99, with a three-month Sky Kids Pass for £19.99, or a two-month Sky Entertainment Pass for £19.99. The NowTV Box on its own costs £14.99, so these deals represent some great savings.
Once you’ve tried NowTV, why not try a month’s free Amazon Prime Video, or a month’s free Netflix trial for even more free films. It makes sense to try all three before you make an eventual decision on which you decide to stick with (if any).
