Coming to NOW TV?

 


I hope so.  Wil stop the F1 fans grumbling about subsiding the football. 🙂  Interestingly at the end of teh article "Sky said that it will launch a broadband-delivered TV service next year".  What that means to Now TV, I don't kno.

 

Should end up with 

 

  • Sky Formula One
  • Sky Football One
  • Sky Football Two
  • Sky Golf
  • Sky Cricket
  • Sky Sports Arena - other content including rugby and tennis.
  • Sky Sports Mix

Better start using up my day and week passes...

Starting price on Sky seems to be about £18/month for one channel.  I suspect it would be similar on Now TV.  Can't imagine it would be any lower than £15/month.  

 

Will make the passes on Now TV complex.  If they allow mix and match there would be 100s of combinations.

Rebranding to start on Tuesday 18th July.  Up to that point shows are on a particular channel, but after that just Sky Sports.

Re: Sky Sports themed channels coming to NOW TV?

I have read that the pricing will be something like this:

 

1 channel £18
1 each extra channel £5
All channels £28

 

This would be a nightmare for Now passes so suspect the day/week/month passes will be for all channels, hopefullly including Mix if it still exists.

Prices haven't been announced yet.  Nor the channel names.  From what I understand £18 will be the entry point for one of the channels on Sky/Virgin.  Having all the channels should cost the same as it currently does.  No decision has been made regarding NOW TV and quite likely that will only have the all or nothing option so people consider switching to Sky.

 

Highly likely the football will be split between Premier League and the other football, so you get Premier League exclusive to one channel (except final day where multiple games are shown at same time) and Scottish/EFL/La Liga/League Cup/Coppa Italia/Eredivise etc.  Inetrnational games will be a bit of a headache.  Maybe have England (Nations League Only) on the Premier channel with other nations fitting in around them.
