So let me get this straight,
You are removing 3 channels and you are adding only 1 and you expect us to pay the same amount?!?
How is this fair? You should add at least another channel like SyFy or AMC.

What the? £2.99 per month for kids pass... Thats a lot...
It's not that expensive . In fact, I think it's less than BT and talktalk charge to get the kids channels on their TV services.
Looking at the BT website. The basic kids pack only gives you on demand content is 3 pounds a month if you want the kids live/linear channels you actually have to have kids extra and to get that you have to have their standard entertainment pass as well, which means other services might actually be more expensive than nowTV. Especially if you factor in that you would have to have broadband from BT as well and they are not the cheapest when it comes to broadband

Good. Should I expect the cost of the entertainment package to go down by £2.99 ?
Maybe time to try netflix instead.
so where is this announcement as this is the first I've heard of it?
(unless it was in an email i didnt bother to read or havent got yet 😕 )

Really unhappy about this. The three channels being removed account for about two thirds of the viewing in my household. Most likely to ditch the entertainment channel and sign up for the kids only.
Also will be checking out kids selection on Netflix and Amazon Prime this is making a good value service much less attractive.
Have a rethink NOW TV and at least reduce the entertainment package accordingly.
I agree with many people here im not happy either.
and while i would agree with some argues about paying for other peoples Kids packages - IF they were to drop the main price, which they dont appear to be (at least from what i have seen, i could be wrong, i will go back and check later) but in effect its brought the total "package" cost to nearly £10 + £10 for films + whatever for sports (and while i agree the film package is slightly better than others - i still dont think the "total package" cost is worth 3X the competitions. + Netflix and amazon "sector off" the kids stuff - surely with skys resources they could do somrthing smarter - mind you increasing your revenue some would argue is the smartest thing.
Either way im not particulary happy about another price increase in a few months time.
for those wanting to get good kids channels i have had prime and netflix you can now get both for the same price as now tv entertainment - and the kids stuff along with documentaries are great.
take a look........
The loss of disney is a big one in my house,my daughters are not interested in the other channels.It seems that now tv no longer provides something for everyone at our home.I shall have to look at adding bt tv back on and ditching now tv.
