Reasonable I guess, but personally would have to be even cheaper for me. Just had the entertainment pass for GOT and while it worked, the streaming quality looks a bit poor these days on large and 4K screens at only 720P and if you like surround sound forget it, stereo only. Really think Now TV should get with the times, by comparison Netflix now have a huge library of 4K content, even some HDR and Amazon are just behind, that really puts the video quality of Now TV into perspective. Plus half the time it didn't even stay at max quality, sometimes dropping to something akin to Youtube at lowest settings.

Personally, I think they deliberately limit the PQ of Now TV to make a Sky (Now TV is just Sky by another name) sub seem more attractive (where you can at least get a less heavily compressed 1080 image). If you could stream at up to 4K with HD audio then Sky Satellite TV would become pointless for a lot of people.

To be fair for those with smaller sets and who aren't so sensitive to image quality, this is still a reasonable deal. If you are happy with DVD quality video you will probably find Now TV matches up roughly with that (minus the dolby digital audio)....
So you buy now tv freeview boxes for £25 each, remove the pass and sell them for £28 plus postage???
Who pays £28 for a now tv box without a pass???

Great deal. It's for New Customers only though. Worth setting up a new account under the wife's name though. Thanks OP.
Great price.. So how can sky tv justify charging so much when this is the same thing !
Thanks OP. Does anyone know if this deal has an expiry for redemption? I can't see it on the link and didn't want to sign up until next month ideally

Because people pay it.
Might be worth checking your account emails (we have two)- i've been offered movies for £4.99 "50% off"
Great Deal!!!! I got the same deal from Argos for £19.99, a couple of months ago.
Sorry never noticed the movies included, but after 14 day trial of the movies I got 4 months for 3.99 a month.
Not the same as sky as entertainment is only 11 or so channels and no plus 1 's etc. This is a great deal though

Thanks, just got this offer for American Horror Story & Walking Dead series. You can use the sliders when purchasing to choose how many months you want, but discounts do vary depending on what you go for.

The on demand streams at 1080 it's only if you're watching live it drops to 720. But yeah it's a bit crap compared to netflix/amazon offerings.
I think DVD quality is a bit of a harsh comparison though

An alternative is: -
Buy
3 x NowTV Freeview boxes with 2 months movies - £75
2 x NowTV Freeview boxes with 3 months entertainment - £50
All in ASDA total £125

Sell the unused boxes on Ebay for £28 each. £2.90 postage, 10% (£2.80 ebay) and 4% (£1.12 PayPal).
So £15 less (5 x £21.18) = £19.10

If you can be bothered with the hassle
So you buy now tv freeview boxes for £25 each, remove the pass and sell them for £28 plus postage???

Better off buying a month at normal price then getting a deal when you go to cancel
Hi all, do Now TV passes expire?

I bought a Now TV box via the John Lewis deal posted on HUKD a few weeks ago. It came with a 6 month sky cinema pass.

The question is, if I go for the deal posted in this thread, can I save the pass that came with my box to use at a later date? Say in 6 months time?
Edited by: "DevK" 9th Sep 2017
The black now TV boxes are regularly available for 14.99 with two months movies. These work out at £7.50 a month. Occasionally the four month boxes come down to £19.99, so £5 a month. As others have mentioned you can often get discounted rates when cancelling.

I believe you have 12 months from purchase, but they don't really have anyway of knowing when that was. I've never had a code refused.

No the WHOLE of Now tv is limited to 720p. It isn't even really about the fact it's 720p so much, it's the fact they use really low bitrate to go with it.

Yeah that sucks. Bit of a cheek really, the box lets you select 1080.

Annoying really. The choice is adverts, unreliable boxes and expense (even at 75% off I'm paying more for sky than I did for Now TV) vs lower quality and less choice.

If you could pluck the best bits from both of them it would be awesome.
I think I will wait till the black box and 6 months entertainment pass comes on again at £19.50 which I paid last time finished 1 month ago

Yeah, the box will scale and output 1080p to the tv but the stream that Now tv pushes to it is limited big time. I do use Now Tv, but it's hitting the point where we're watching tv shows and movies elsewhere and just having Now tv for the football. The odd few shows I personally watch in the house through Now Tv I could happily wait a little longer and grab them when they come out on iTunes/Amazon. (Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.) Its just a few things that my partner likes that still means we'll be subscribing to Now Tv till the end of time itself.. Ncis, Ncis LA and Hawaii Five-0.

Look on eBay for sold listings for 4500k model NowTV boxes.
They are the ones that are normally £50+ a pack with a pass. Also have Freeview built in with pause function.
got both for £40 a few months back, still to activate the movie pass
seller on ebay doing a months pass for £2 for movies/entertainment/one day sports.
I bought 4 as you can only use 4 per account but it would give you 4 months for £8

Those boxes haven`t been £50 for ages, the most i have seen them for is £34.99.
I have 100mb virgin broadband and now tv still buffers no idea why no other service does it

If you are running out of stuff to watch on Netflix then just top it up here and there throughout the year with other subs. Still miles cheaper than a Sky package. There's some great stuff over on Amazon to try out plus you could always rent stuff out on disc from the likes of CinemaParadiso.

Think these are probably the free codes Now TV are handing out at theme parks, they are limited to four uses per account but only one pass type per account, basically you can use one each for movies, entertainment, sport and kids per account. To get four months movies you would need four accounts.

I've attempted to apply a (presumably) expired code from an old box before. It failed, but I contacted NowTV and they had no issues applying it for me manually.

No it's a certainty. Your tv will SCALE the content to 1080p, the same way as it does for all content, even 540p DVD. It doesn't change the fact that the native content being put out is only 720p. In fact, SKY tv itself has only just actually moved to using 1080p files on Sky Cinema. It turns out that before that they were using lower resolution masters and encoding those for tv output at 1080i/720p. (That info comes from a Sky press release itself.)

The only way we will see 1080p streams anytime soon may come with the Sky By Broadband service when that launched sometime next year. If they were really clever, they'd stick that as available on multiple platforms, Nvidia Shield, Apple TV, RoKu etc. But you kow it's Sky, so they'll end up just providing it via the good 'ole Sky Q box and nothing else.

Love using Cinema Paradiso here and there. Think like Lovefilm was. It might be old school but it's bloody excellent value for money.

Think of it this way. People pay for SKY Cinema each month and get movie releases about 9-12 months after they've shown up in cinemas. You can pay for Cinema paradiso and get recent releases between 3-4 months from its cinema release. For a quick example on Sept 22nd Sky Cinema will be premiering The Accountant. That's been available through cinema Paradiso since March. Between now and end of November I'll be able to rent the likes of Wonder Woman, Spide-man:Homecoming and Alien Covenant. The last few months I've watched things like Logan, Ghost in the Shell, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Kong: Skull Island, Life and John Wick 2. Sky Cinema subscribers are going to have to wait until next summer before they get any of those to watch, and ironically they won't be watching it at as good a quality either.

Then as well as that they do a ridiculous amount of tv show stuff. Whether that's stuff like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Ash vs Evil Dead, Vikings, Black Sails, Tin Star etc. Plus, you can swap and change your subscription level with them month to month. So some months you might want only 3 or 4 movies out, so stick it on a light package for £6.98. Other months you might to smash through a few tv series as well, so have it on a heavier subscription, or if it's a dry month then you can always freeze your subscription till a certain date again.

None of these services HAVE to replace each other for you full time. It's just about playing it clever to get exactly what you want from each of them.

No worries. I regularly use the streaming services but the content available via disc rental makes them look laughable sometimes, even compared to full Sky.

Films available now..
