Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

When you want to watch a three day darts tournament or other weekend sport event and the option is now a daily pass or a monthly pass, it is quite clear why Sky/Now TV have done this. How utterly immoral this is during lockdown when people have lost their jobs and are at home feeling worried and bored. Disgusting greed.

...it is quite clear why Sky/Now TV have done this

 

I don’t think it is.  Surely better to sell a week pass for £15 for those who want to watch a test match, a golf tournament, football internationals or anything else that is done and dusted in a week.  So unless the take up was particularly low, it makes little sense to scrap it.

 

FWIW I find the day pass next to useless these days with football matches spanning Friday - Monday.  Lucky to get 2 in a 24 hour period.  I have 3 day passes to use.  May squeeze them in between monthly passes at some point.

Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

One thing that is worth doing before deciding on buying a month pass is to check ahead.  With darts there was World Cup over last 4 days and grand slam coming up later this month (Mon 16th Nov -Tue 24th Nov)

Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

I agree with a lot of the earlier comments - came in to buy a pass for a week to watch the Masters, but certainly don't want to pay for a month.  Poor show, NowTV, and another customer you've just lost.

You can still get a weekly sports pass if you use the Now TV app via an Apple TV. You are still able to purchase a weekly pass via your iTunes account at £14.99

 

Totally agree with other comments, this is a pain as I only want to watch the Masters.

Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

I agree with the posts from fellow golfers - great disappointment that I cannot buy a week pass and I am not prepared to pay for a month pass that I then have to cancel. It feels like an underhand marketing ploy. I have previously recommended Now TV but won’t be doing in the future.

Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

Where’s my weekly pass gone!!

I used this to watch the masters. Test matches , long weekends of football. Why do I suddenly have to pay more for a MONTH? 
Sky cashing in during lockdown? Shame on you 

bye

Re: SPORTS WEEKLY PASS

I am not sure this is Sky cashing in.  The day pass is definitely cashing in nowadays at £10, but the week pass which was £15 is now not so far away from the month pass on offer (£20/month or £25/month) and I suspect the take up of the weekly pass wasn’t that high.  I was able to get a number of week passes free from PS Plus, so I used them, but never paid for one as I was always able to get month passes for £20 or less.  I have a month pass currently (3 months costing £50), but this would have been the perfect week with masters and international football.

 

I agree that when a major golf tournament is on the week pass makes more sense, but no other provider (BT/Eurosport/Premier Sports) does a week or even a day pass, you have to get a month minimum.

That’s interesting, does it apply the pass directly to your account? Or do you get a code?
