Lack of Sky Sports pass offers

I've used a Sky Sports pass for a couple of years now via 2 x 9 month offers and 1 3 month offer at the end of the longer ones. I've just come to the end of the 3 month one but haven't been given a current offer to get me to continue. I ust admit I would like to continue but, as a pensioner the full pricing is just too much.

 

I've checked around but am I missing a current offer anywhere so I can restart it? If anyone could advise me I'd appreciate it very much

Check your old emails offering you Sports for £20/month.  Many of these codes don't expire despite what it says on the email.   I have one that says  "save over 40% and get behind the Three Lions" and it still works,

 

I have a sneaking suspicion there may be an offer in email or on the site tomorrow as after a blank Premier League last weekend for Sky and the distraction of the six nations, Sky has four decent premier league games and no rugby on the terrestrial channels.

 

Alternatively, wait a week or two for the F1 season offer.  In the meantime get one of the day/week passes with 5 months of Sports on a smartphone.

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

There is a 6 month sports pass deal at £19.99 per month which ends on the 24th of February 2020 currently showing on the nowtv website if that is of some interest.

Looks like I was right 😉

Thanks a lot for this one. It's definitely the option type I'm looking for. Mind you, out of curiosity I tried to find it via the menu options e.g. Passes and Vouchers etc.after I'd signed in online - and it wasn't there. I had to use your link to find it.

 

Anyway, now it's just deciding the best time to get it - or will the 9 month F1 one be available soon. Decisions.. Decisions

FWIW I would get this ahead of the F1 offer, as you only have to pay £19.99/month rather than the whole lot up front.  Also if price of F1 is same as last year (£195) it works out at over £20/month. And I am pretty certain that when you cancel in just over 5 months time, you will get an offer of £20 for three months.  And if in the interim there is another £20 or less offer, you could cancel this and take that up.

Thanks again.

 

Actually, that was my line of thought but I needed to confirm what I paid last time for the 9 month offer. I will take this but I'll wait till next week to sign up for it as I won't be able to take full advantage of it this week.

Another senior person and a newbie to Now TV. Sorry to be obtuse but I can't seem to make sense of the T&Cs of this offer. If I sign up to £19.99/months for 6 months (then usual price of £33.99), would I be able to cancel, say, after 4 months without incurring penalties? Or am I tied into a contract for 6 months at £19.99, after which I can cancel anytime? Any light you can shed would be most helpful. Thanks in advance.

You’re not tied into anything beyond the first month if you sign up for this. You will pay £19.99 per month each month for 6 months if you want to continue. If not, you can cancel at anytime if you wish and you won’t be charged again.

This would be the offer that I couldn't take advantage of because NowTV had already saved a more expensive "offer" £26.99 / month to my account! .  I don't know when they started doing that, but it is not really on.

As per previous reply, I did take the offer from the 24th Feb so I'm OK for the Masters next month👍😁.

 

Thanks to all who helped me get there. Much appreciated

Very underhand.  There was another thread on this where the subscriber did get the £20/month for 6 months offer and a free month after complaining on chat.  FWIW I would cancel the £27/month offer and look through old emails for any £20 offers from last summer.  They don’t expire.

Same happened to me, current deal ends 15March but ws hoping to get f1 pass. Been offered the 27 a month deal but didn't know about the 20 deal until too late. Looks like they have changed policy somewhere and offering deals pre expiry rather than after. Pity the previous deal wasn't sent to me.

In the time I've used Now tv, I've never had any "new" offer directly applied. As someone has said, that's underhand (definitely) although you can expect to go onto the standard rates as per mobiles and utilities.

 

I always cancel my current setup in the week before it ends and maybe get something along the lines of a 3 month slightly reduced price. I've taken several but this one didn't arrive hence this query on the forum.

 

As mentioned, I've taken the offer mentioned on this. I'm annoyed Now tv don't advertise it more to existing customers. I'll see what happens later this month when my Entertainment and Cinema offers end..

Re the offer taken at the end of February, the timing couldn't have been worse could it with all sports (including the football and golf that I only watch) now postponed. I've tried contacting Now TV to discuss a temporary suspension of the deal but with no luck and I've heard nothing at all directly. The 2nd payment has just gone out and as a pensioner, this means a lot to me.

 

Live chat seems to have disappeared altogether so can anyone advise how to move forward on this?
