Help choosing a NOW TV deal as a new customer

As with most providers, NOW TV offer new customers the best deals as an incentive. They are pretty good at consistently advertising discount Passes and broadband combo’s. You should get your set-up either free, or at a reduced price if you opt for their 12 month contract. Crucially NOW TV’s popular services boast no contract, but you should consider the 12 month broadband package as the savings are attractive. It is worth noting that you do need to cancel monthly passes if you no longer require them, as they automatically renew. The Passes themselves are split into 4 different viewing categories.

Prices are standard (check promotions) and include land line rental (required). For comparison purposes, the following prices include the NOW TV Entertainment Pass.

And the Kit?

The NOW TV Smart box is a simple and straight forward way to access your favorite Sky channels. It’s most attractive feature is that you can watch free-to-air and pay TV channels without a contract. You can also pause and rewind live TV, and there’s more than 60 Freeview channels plus 12 HD channels as standard. Installed Apps include favourites such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5. The NOW TV Smart box is free with broadband and Pass combos, or available to buy for £39.99 with free delivery. Once your NOW TV Smart box arrives in the post you, simply plug it into your broadband connection, buy a Pass and off you go.

There’s also the original slimmed down ‘NOW TV box’ which drops the ability to record, pause and rewind live TV. Also, you don’t get built in Freeview, so you’re pretty much relying on the Passes that you purchase. This NOW TV box is available from just £14.99.

The NOW TV broadband hub comes free with any combo package. This WIFI router connects your NOW TV box and get’s you up and running right away.

Optional call packages

When building your NOW TV bundle pay-as-you-go calls are standard, so you can just make the odd call and pay a little extra. If you make regular calls you also have the option to upgrade to ‘Evenings & weekend calls’ (£4.00 p/m) or ‘Anytime calls’ (£8.00 p/m). These optional extras include calls to UK mobiles.
