Some older movies added as well.  Not sure it will be enough to stop a drift to Disney + at £60/annum (before 22 Feb) compared to rack price of £12/month for Now TV Cinema.

The premieres have been underwhelming for a while. Christmas was weak and now its looking like 1 headline movie a month. 


The problem with the big movies not being released is NowTVs line up doesn't stand out as much from the other streaming services. You can watch so many films that are on NowTV elsewhere. There doesn't seem to be exclusive deals for the 'stock' movies. I got an hour into Birds of Prey and turned it off, bored. I ended up watching Reservoir Dogs. After, I switched to another streaming service and it was on there. 


I've cancelled my Movies for the moment and just sticking with Entertainment while I have it on offer. I don't see the point in paying for two services to get the same movies when I've watched all the newer exclusives.


I started a sports pass yesterday, and despite a couple of half price offers for entertainment and cinema under exclusive offers, the content isn’t too inspiring and I have seen most if not all of what I want to watch. 


I have watched most movies/tv on Amazon Prime lately which tends to be default as I have that for free delivery and the other benefits as much as the streaming.


Will get an entertainment pass when Big LIttle Lies returns, but that is likely to be just for a month.

Anyone know what happened to Tremors: Shrieker Island? TV Choice magazine lists it at 12.10am on the morning of March 20th, but there's no sign of it on catch-up as far as I can see and the next issue of the mag doesn't list it at all for this week on any of the Sky movie channels. Was it actually shown in that slot? Has it been shown at all?

Sometimes Sky only pick up the rights for one off viewing and it never gets added for on demand. Looks like this is one of those cases.


Having looked at the Sky go app it’s not on Sky anywhere to watch.

Thanks for replying Gavs.

As Schnapps correctly points out, it was also due to be shown on March 18th (I hadn't noticed that in TV Choice, but checked it and it was indeed listed), so it wouldn't appear to be a one-off screening. It likely just got pre-empted by the Justice League film as Schnapps also suggests, and which i've seen suggested elsewhere online. So hopefully it will turn up soon when a new slot appears.

Hi @newmac


I believe this movie was originally intended for the 18th of March 2021, but due to the Zack Snyder Justice League movie turning up on the same day Sky /NOW decided to postpone it.


That's my guess anyway. 


Hopefully @Izzie-T will have the answers you are looking for?
