Sky reduce NOW TV Sports Pass costs and offer new 7 day deal
Seven days for less than eleven quid is starting to sound tempting
The pricing of NOW TVs Sports passes just got a bit more realistic, even if it’s only a temporary offer.
Previously, Sky had been asking customers £9.99 for 24 hour access to all its Sports Channels, which always seemed a little steep to us, but they’ve now reduced the cost of a Day Pass to £6.99, whilst a new weekly deal comes in at £10.99, which doesn’t sound too bad at all.
The Pass also brings with it access to the brand new, Sky Sports 5 channel which is the new home of European Football, for the broadcaster, as well as the new-look Sky Sports News HQ, which both launch tomorrow (12th August).
The promotion ties in nicely with the kick-off of the Premier League, this Saturday (16th August), with Sky boasting they still have more of the enticing features, compared to BT Sport. They tell us that only on Sky Sports can viewers see matches involving last season’s top 4 teams - Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal – live across the opening weekend of the season, with Premier League champions City beginning their title defence away to Newcastle United.
The offer is open from Thursday 14th August and runs up to 27 November 2014. In such time you’ll be able to watch the likes of the Ryder Cup, as well as all the Premier League, Champions League, La Liga, Copa del Rey, Coppa Italia and Eredivisie action. The Ryder Cup will even get its own channel in September, with 36 hours of live coverage promised by Sky. Now that’s something we wouldn’t mind spending eleven quid on!
NOW TV is available on a wide range of devices including the NOW TV Box, PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android smartphones and tablets, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, YouView, LG Smart TVs, selected LG media devices, Roku boxes and Apple TV (Sky Sports Day Pass only).
Anyone tempted by this – I can see myself shelling out for a couple of week passes before the offer ends?
