Watching Sky Sport on the red button

I have a sky sports subscription which allows me to watch matches on the red button, but I do not have sky TV. I watch the main matches on my TV on the Now App on my Roku Stick, but I can’t see any access to the Red Button. Can you help me please. 

thanks

Hi @DavidWhalley 

I don't think there is anything on the NOW Bonus Streams today, where currently there is nothing showing for me.

What matches are you after ?

Where the next football on Bonus Streams is on Tuesday I believe.

Hi schnapps, I want to watch Blackpool v WBA tomorrow evening. How do I find out if it’s on the Bonus Stream. How do I access it?

Hi @DavidWhalley 

What playback devices will you be using (edit just noticed you have a Roku, so follow my previous instructions on the link above).

Also you need a full blown NOW Sports monthly Membership (not Mobile Membership or Day Sports Pass).

If you follow the instructions on my help link in my previous instructions above you should be able to find Bonus Streams just before the game kick off tomorrow.

The Bonus Streams might not appear until 5 minutes before the games kick off.

Hi Schnapps

I read your link, which helped. I also read your various chats including the screen shots showing the various bonus channels and I think I understand now what I have to do. I do have a full subscription.

Fingers crossed for tonight.

Thanks

Hi @DavidWhalley 

With your Roku Stick tonight, around 5 minutes before the kick off at 19:45 for the Blackpool v WBA match see if the Bonus Stream appears by following the instructions on my previous link.

The last round of The Championship football matches on the NOW Bonus Streams didn't appear until 4 or 5 minutes after the games started for some unknown reason.

Hopefully this won't be the case tonight, so keep checking on your Roku Stick every minute from around five minutes before the scheduled start kick off time at 19:45 for this particular match you want to watch on NOW Bonus Sports Streams.

Hi @DavidWhalley 

The Bonus Streams just popped up on my Amazon Fire Stick NOW App.

Might be worth checking on your Roku Stick.

The Bonus Streams folders will not play yet, but should work just before the kick time at 7:45pm.

Hi Schnapps

Yes I found the bonus channel from your previous instructions and watched the match.

Thanks
