How does Catch Up content work

[ Edited ]

As well as live channels and box set content, the NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass allows you to catch up on shows which have recently been broadcast.

 

When do catch up shows become available?

 

Such shows will typically be available around 24 hours after they're broadcast, although it can sometimes take a little longer. If you're eagerly awaiting something and it hasn't appeared yet, ask on the community here and we'll find out for you.

 

How long are catch up shows available for?


How long we can show catch up content for varies depending on our rights with the original broadcaster, but generally each show will be available for 1-4 weeks once it appears online.

Once that time expires, the episodes are removed from the service, so it is possible you'll find we only have part of a series available to view (eg. episodes 3, 4 and 5, but not episodes 1 or 2). Be sure to watch the episodes as they arrive, or soon after, to avoid missing out on the story!

How does Box Set content work

[ Edited ]

As part of the NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass, you get access to a regularly changing collection of entire series of shows to watch at your leisure. These might be shows which have been aired recently on the ten live channels, some time ago, or on a completely different channel or service altogether.

 

The rights for the box set content do vary, meaning that content won't always be available to watch. Some could be on the service for a month, some for longer, and our rights can be extended at any time. 

 

To keep up to date with what's available, take a look here: Box sets available with NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass

What is slating, or why can't I watch certain shows on live channels via NOW TV

[ Edited ]

There are some shows broadcast on the ten live channels available which we don't have permission to show via NOW TV, so during these broadcasts you'll see a "slate" message explaining it's not available.

 

For more information, please see this help article: NOW TV error message “We’re sorry – unfortunately rights restrictions mean that this programme is no...

Do I need a TV licence to watch NOW TV?

You only need a TV licence to watch NOW TV if you're viewing live channels.

 

If you're only using movies or entertainment on demand, and no live content, then you don't need a TV licence.

 

If you're using a Sky Sports Day Pass, or watching live movies or entertainment channels, you do need a TV licence.
