Does anyone know if NOW TV will sell annual passes for Sky Sports football  2020/2021 season or will there just be monthly and weekly options?

It’s only selected people through marketing who get the email so I think we should all just stop the comments and wait till the 9th and see what happens commenting on here ain’t gonna get u a email Apart from everyone moaning let’s just wait and see ain’t that long to wait !

Tried logging out etc, and even a different browser.  Still not in my exclusive offers, and all I get is oops something went wrong and they are having technical difficulties, and to try again later..........guess I will have to do just that, maybe still rolling out, unless my account is restricted to this for some reason.....odd!

I was holding out for a £200ish FY Offer whether monthly or in one go. This is an insult to customers after last year and drip feeding better offers via selective emails. They do this because they KNOW people will back down and pay it. Not me.

Just noticed all sports channels cost £23 per month on Sky TV. So at £25 per month you pay a £2 premium for using an app rather than the proper Sky Box. Are they mad? This isn’t an offer, it’s a slightly inflated standard price.

@Anonymous User yeah I eventually found them on the offer page between other adverts.

 

The daft thing about all this is that the offer is still more than the retention deals they give when you cancel. In the last couple of month's I've had £20 a month just to stay with them. Add to that, live chat handing out 3 months for £20 a month to others in this thread and it seems there is no joined up thinking at NowTV! I see a problem for them on the horizon when they run out of customers that they haven't ****** off one way or another!

 

Anyway, I'm off to BT and am now on the hunt for a cheap youview box so I can even ditch NowTV's failing/buggy hardware!

Even if you can get it (slap in the face that have bought the season pass before who are excluded) then it's debatable whether this is a deal at all if your primary interest is football.

 

If you include the play-off final, the domestic football season lasts slightly under 9 months. This is a 12 month deal costing £300 in total. 

 

If you only want to watch the football, it would cost you just £5.91 more for the 9 months at full price, retaining the flexibility to switch the channels on and off and potentially pick up monthly/seasonal discounts. 

 

So the actual deal appears to be SAVE a whopping £5.91.  Get a couple of months of summer sport free (when you'll be watching the Euros for free on terrestrial TV) and then, perhaps, a couple of weeks at the start of next season IF they can return to an August kick-off. 

 

Personally, I wouldn't tie myself up for 12 months for a smoke and mirrors deal like that.

The EPL season is going to be about 8 months long to mid May so can't you just cancel then and you'll pay 8 x £25 = £200. Terms seem to suggest you can do so.

 

Probably just protecting against season being extended again from Covid so they won't then need to extend offer for free because it's not a 'season pass'.

Hi,

 

do you know if there are any plans from NOW TV to offer customers another season pass at a discounted price. I saw they are offering 25£ for 12 months but that’s hardly much of a deal with all

considering.

 

does anyone know of any good deals.

 

thanks

£25 per month offer just appeared in my exclusive offers. Add boost for £3 and it works out at £28 pm for HD with ability to cancel anytime. This is a big increase on last year when I paid £23 but given that you have to pay £43 on Sky Tv for sports in HD (£18 for HD sports but you have to buy the Entertainment package for £25)  then I think it’s a fair offer. Agree with what others have said on selective marketing for £20 pm offer though.

I agree that it's pretty ridiculous that this was sold as some kind of 'great deal' that was coming up, but if you actually are buying it for the football season it's essentially 225 quid (9 months and then cancel). Given last year was 200 (but all up front) and they just gave the £20 per month to a select group, that's about what I was expecting.

 

I still haven't received any kind of email about it, by the way. It's just popped up today in my 'personalised offers' section if you go into the 'passes and vouchers' section of My Account.

To be fair if you cancel in May the total cost for the season will be £225 compared to £200 last year.

 

Yeah it's a month less of football, but given there will likely be more live fixtures if 3 pm kickoffs continue to be moved for TV (I don't see fans being allowed in grounds in mass anytime soon), it isn't that bad.

 

I bought it. I'd be spending way more that the extra £5 a month it's increased actually going to the matches.

It is ridiculous to expect football fans to pay £25 per month for 12 months when they only required 9/10 months at a lower price! 

 

I think l will chance it by getting a couple of £25 gift cards and hoping there will be a better deal in November?

within the 12 months otherwise we loose the deal. I hope they will come out
with an improved offer

Thanks a lot

@stephen_J monthly sport gift cards have been discontinued. You may be lucky and find some old stock but the NowTV branded ones that have been launched to replace them are day passes for £9 or Argos seem to have weekly ones for £10!

Those gift cards don't really exist anymore or at least are very hard to find from a reputable dealer. That is not by chance. NOW TV have you over a barrel.

The Argos Weekly Pass is showing as not in stock. It is also worth noting that the Weekly Pass has now been removed from the online store but still available from the device apps. Perhaps the Weekly Passes are about to go altogether.

@Gizmo Weekly passes are going as well as the mobile pass!

Yeh, that’s not a deal. Off I go to virgin/BT then. Their deals are cheaper and you get a recording box. Looks like I’ll be cancelling my entertainment pass too, how to lose customers.
