Lots of people asking similar questions. I guess the NOWTV accountants are trying to work out how much the refunds might cost them before responding to everybody.

Surely they just extend the length of the pass to the end of May?

NowTV refuse to refund my F1 season pass in the basis no races are cancelled, only postponed. I don’t understand their position based on Formula1.com own confirmation of cancellation. Had I booked tickets to see this race they would have been refunded already!

Seems like no refunds/credits is the order from above.  I used a 3 month pass from a stick  in preference to a 1 month pass as I was using it to the end of the football season.  If the football season is over the I have lost 2 months, effectively £66.

  •       ok

  •       ok
  •       Starman 73, We’re closely monitoring developments across all sporting events and will keep customers updated on next steps if any events change due to covid-19 precautions. We’re doing everything we can to minimise the impact that this will have on our customers
  •       All the football has been cancelled.
  •       which is 100% impact on me as I don't watch anything else
  •       https://www.skysports.com/watch/football-on-sky
  •       nothing on
  •       As the matches are postponed, we are unable to promise you when they will be back.
  •       I do understand your situation here.
  •       I know - so can I have a refund or a credit?

15:00

  •       As an exception, what best I can do for you is can help you with the free Sky Sports Week Pass on your account so that you can watched the postponed matches in future whenever they are available with us.

Agent2

  •       The sports pass is quite expensive to pay for if nothing is on. If I had a normally monthly pass I would cancel it.
  •       One week? But games are cancelled for next three weeks.
  •       and possibly beyond.
  •       can I cancel the pass and get a refund or credit for the unused two months?

15:04

  •       from help forum...
  •       Apologies Starman 73, in this case, we are unable to help you with the refund for the same. Instead, I will forward this case to the relevant team. They will review your case to help you further in a best possible way via email at the earliest.

  •       Scholar Re: Now TV Football Season Pass - refund after Covid-19 postponements ‎13-03-2020 14:15 I had exactly one month of a 3 month sports pass left that i bought from currys with a now tv stick. My live chat guy ignored all refund requests and instead issued a one month sports pass code.
  •       Why can't I get the same for the two months I have left?

15:06

  •       I wish I never got the three month pass.

15:07

  •       hello?
  •       Apologies Starman 73, I'm unable to see the 1 month free pass promised to you.
  •       Was there an email sent to you regarding the same?

Agent2

How did you manage to talk to somebody? I can't find a way to talk to anyone. Chat button doesn't work, phone number I tracked down was just automated and told me to go online.

I want to exchange my sky sports pass for a sky movies pass. Is this possible? Unable to speak to anybody. Chat doesn’t work. Frustrating.

Exactly the same, I can't find anyway to speak to anyone. I just get directed to the community forum!

If you want a "refund" its not a guarantee, but be persistent. 

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

Can I ask was this all done via live chat?  Were they able to refund you as I've been refused a refund!

Hi, live chat wouldn't work sent an email in the end. They didn't answer my message properly but said they would provide weekly passes to watch races when they are rearranged if season ticket runs out. I was asking about the premier league season continuing after my season ticket runs out. So not definitive but I'm hoping they give me weekly passes to watch remaining matches once my season ticket runs out. Not very professional of them but that is all I have from them. Poor customer service I don't want to renew with them if this how they treat customers. Why don't they provide a phone number so you can discuss problems with them?

Hi, what is the email address please? This self help approach is an absolute pain and I’m getting no where fast! I also have a 10 month Sports Pass that I would like to pause, until the sporting world gets back to normal. Many thanks

I'm in the same boat on the season pass - what's the answer? Can it pause?

I've read you can definitely pause it but I haven't worked out how to do it. Getting hold of someone is extremely difficult.

Hi, just searched for the link I used and can't find it. It took me ages in the first place but their reply came from [email removed] I don't know if that is an automated un manned address or if it will work. Good luck.
