The website I look at to see the status of the games that are not the main Sky pick in the Championship usually states the games are bonus streams. Next Tues/Wed games are show as "sky app". Will these be available on my Now TV monthly pass as bonus streams?
If they are going to be on Sky sports including possible red button then you can guarantee (almost) they will be on bonus streams.
Use this Sky link page below to see what Championship Football games are coming up, either live on the Sky Sports Football channel or the red button service (where the red button service games indicated will also be mirrored on NOW Bonus Streams).
Out of curiosity what playback devices will you be using when watching NOW Bonus Streams ?
Where not all devices are supported (for example PC or Mac the last time I checked).
Yeah you will be fine using the Youview box which is one of my playback devices that I have that has the Bonus Streams feature.
When Bonus Streams are available don't go to the bottom of the NOW App home screen where they are not found there anymore since the NOW App layout change update.
What you need to do is go to the top line with the gear wheel symbol and select "Sport" where the screen below it should then refresh to the dedicated Sports section and then navigate down to the bottom of the television screen to reach and find Bonus Streams.
This tweet from the NOW Help Team reckon that tonight's Championship games will not be on Bonus Streams, though the previous Sky linked article I posted clearly says that mid week Championship games on the Sky red button service will also be on NOW (like previous times gone bye on Bonus Streams).
If this tweet is true it's going to disappoint a lot of football fans who follow Championship football on NOW.
@ContentTeam can you investigate this further.
Hi @schnapps @MartyB @gavs82008
games will be available. These can all be found on the Sky Sports website - https://www.skysports.com/watch/football-on-sky. They will show as Sky Sports app in this list but they are bonus streams on our platform.

That's good news to hear.
Perhaps someone from NOW can reach out to the person who asked the question on Twitter and tweet the updated information also on there.
