Cancel current NOW TV Movies subscription and get offered £2.40 a month for 3 months

22
Posted 1st Nov
Went to cancel my current NOW TV movies subscription as the deal I had was up, during the cancel process I was offered the same subscription for £2.40 a month for 3 months.

Potentially the lowest i've seen it without a special code etc.

May be account specific but worth a look if you have an existing subscription.

Runs through to Feb 2020 for me, so great price for all the movies they will put on there throughout Dec & Jan.

First post so be kind please...

It's always nice when you get offered the big discount in trying to leave. Congratulations.
Good luck with the voting on your first deal! Enjoy the films.
This is person dependant as I only got offered movies for £7 a month
Another one of these, give it a rest
I think this is a one-off thing for all accounts. The first time I cancelled NowTV I immediately got sent a 'three months Entertainment for the price of one' email which I went for. The second time I cancelled; zip, nada, rien!

I guess they know if they did it every time you cancel, no-one would ever pay full whack. Having said that I'd say NowTV is NEVER worth the full rate. Even at three months for the price of one, it's marginal.
great deal thanks ,heat added

It’s really gone downhill over the last six months the daily premiere are mainly b-movies. Either they have lost the first dips option that sky use to have or the new owners (Comcast) are stingy with money.

A lot of Disney/Marvel stuff is showing last chance dates, wonder if that is going too soon or if it will be renewed
Just ‘cancelled’ mine again for the umpteenth time and was offered this price, nice one OP, have some heat.
Ive never paid full price for movies for about 18months, always cancel at the end of discount period to be offered another. Cancelled about a week ago and its the first time ive never been offered anything. Wasnt the usual cancellation process either, no are you sure you want to cancel, no look what you will miss, just a, youre gone, cancelled.

Agreed, personally I now only get it when there's a free code or really good deal. It means I can go a few months without it and then catch up on the new premieres I missed when I do renew. If I paid for it every month I'd probably only watch one movie per month.
These cancellation deals vary from account to account, what you've been offered is good but it's unlikely that somebody else will get the same deal or even a deal at all.

Disney+ is coming soon so I expect they will want all their films on there exclusively
I never used to get good offers but last week I accepted £1.67 a month for 3 months.
I bought a cheap ebay pass last month for Sky Cinema.. Been to cancel tonight, best offer so far... FREE FOR 3 MONTHS..
I accepted the offer..

Exactly the same experience here, cancelled 12 days ago and no offer to stay.
Usually they then send you an email a few days later asking you to rejoin, never got that either - subscription is now lapsed.
Will wait and see what they offer for new customers around Black Friday and see if its worth setting up a new account, it's defintely not worth paying full price for the service.

Do they still do that? I've been watching recently and haven't noticed a 'new' movie every day. I know it used to be a thing (as it always said "Today's premiere" but I only see a new movie now usually on a Friday.

Also, they seem to have gotten worse on information about movies on the platform. There no longer seems to be the "Recently added" tag on the pictures for movies, the Recently Added menu section also seems out of date - i.e. if there were a new movie every day then the picture(s) would change to reflect this - but it doesn't. They also seem to have gotten rid of the "Leaving soon" menu category which was handy as you could check what to see before it goes.

Where are the movies going to then if they don’t go to Sky? Am I correct that roughly nine months from being in the cinema they end up on Sky is that correct?
A Premier a day is a bit much, some of the films are absolute rubbish.
I know there is Chilli movies but think that’s only for renting and buying ie no subscription service?

Recently added works (on Roku),as pictures do change, but they don't seem to add it in chronological order. I guess they don't highlight premieres as they aren't anything special. I too miss the Leaving Soon - I actually watched some great stuff through that, stuff i wouldnt normally click on, now really on other websites.

I've seen stuff on Netflix and Amazon Prime which skipped Sky (Greenbook/Stan & Laurel for example on Amazon prime), I assume it will be even more split with Apple TV and Disney coming aboard.

It used to be for most parts Rental --> SKY --> then Netflix or Amazon Prime. Now thing from Netflix and Amazon prime are going onto other smaller streamers.

This multiple streaming subscriptions is going to be more expensive than paying just SKY/NOW TV.

It's just another in a long line of things I find myself scratching my head about. Why take something that works fine and make it worse? Then, charge more for the service! The old way was perfect. You went on "Recently added" and there was the picture with "Today's premiere" tagged to it. They also got rid of the "Coming Soon" section of their website where you could view all the coming movies lined up. Now, It's as if it's 'hidden' away. I had to hunt on Google to find out what movies are coming in November. Even then, it only shows the "big" blockbusters so basically four movies - all a bit poo really. I guess the big one is "Captain Marvel" on 22nd Nov - but even that got a panning! Already seen it though...

I guess its how web developers earn there living by making tweaks, adding things and then removing them, just to add them later.
Leaving soon:

MoviesSleeping Beauty (1959) – 31st OctoberThe original animated classic departs Sky Cinema, along with several other Disney movies, including The Fox And The Hound.

Con Air – 31st OctoberThe bunny in the box. The hair. The jump suits. The bit where Steve Buscemi sings He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Simon West’s actioner is the pinnacle of 90s Nic Cage action.

The Nightmare Before Christmas – 31st OctoberTim Burton’s stop-motion flick takes the festive charm of Christmas and twists it with the warped horror of Halloween – a combination that director Henry Selick whips up with visually breathtaking glee. Combined with Danny Elfman’s superb soundtrack (Elfman sings the part of Pumpkin Jack), this is one musical guaranteed to freak out the whole family.

Zodiac – 31st OctoberDavid Fincher’s slow-burn thriller about the infamous serial killer and the hunt to work out his identity is a painstakingly constructed masterpiece fuelled by superb performances from Jake Gyllenhaal and Mark Ruffalo, mystery, fear and obsession.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – 8th NovemberThe epic saga continues with a thrilling eighth instalment that sees the Resistance clinging on as the relentless First Order closes in Our heroes – outnumbered and outgunned as ever – are trapped in a seemingly unwinnable game of cat and mouse. Their best and perhaps only chance for survival lies with self-exiled Jedi Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and the plucky Rey (Daisy Ridley), sent to persuade him to save the day once more. Looper’s Rian Johnson pulls out all the stops here, utilising stunning experimental techniques, Kurosawa-inspired action and narrative twists on par with the series’ most shocking reveals.
